All's quiet.........

It's been a fairly quiet ole week here!

Went to the lovely Penally Crop in Pontypridd on Saturday and had a lovely day. It was a shame that Gems could not come along with my sister and I as usual, but hopefully she can join us for the jaunt next month. I decided to enter the challenge, and spent the WHOLE day working on a page which, essentially, ended up consisting of a couple of strips of patterned paper, a blob of paint and a title. I am now officially South Wales's slowest scrapper, and I'm even willing to venture possibly Britain's slowest scrapper. If anyone would like to challenge my title, you are most welcome!! I will try to get a picture of the offending LO up soon, but it really is pants and I'm not all that happy with it.

It was half term this week, and although we had lectures as normal, we obviously had no school placement on Wednesday, so I offered to babysit my niece for the day. It was a lovely, fresh, bright day, so we wrapped up warm and toddled off to the park to feed the ducks and play on the swings. Bless her little heart when it came to throwing the bread to the ducks - she could just about drop it on to the stone walling on the other side of the railing that surrounds the lake!! I had a lovely day with her and spoiled her a bit, but what else are nieces for, and she really is such a little smasher!!! She has Gypo style hair in all the pics I took, as unfortunately for her, her Auntie Tallie was tasked with getting her dressed and putting her pigtails in that morning!Speaking of which, here's a page I made of her a few weeks back, using one of the photos from her birthday. It's another fantastically crappy photo, really must see about sorting some software out!!
I had a surprise out of the blue last week and found out and I will be receiving some money in a few weeks. I was planning on putting some aside to treat myself to some of the new CHA releases, but now I'm really tempted to put the whole lot towards a DSLR. Decision decisions! What's a girl to do?

Nat, definitely get a DSLR, they're great. You'll be amazed at the quality of your pics. Mind you, it then opens up a whole new world of 'learning how to use the damn thing!' lol!
