Discovering Picasa!

I recently discovered Picasa - wow, what a fab little program, and completely free too! I made this photo collage of Halloween pics with just a couple of clicks, uploaded a pic of the finished layout, cropped and edited the photo - again just a couple of clicks, and am now blogging the layout directly from the program! This seriously could revolutionise the organisation of my pics on the PC, which is currently rather disorganised. In fact it's quite a shambles! Yay for Picasa!

Lazy Days

I love days like today - a lie in to start, followed by lounging around in pj's, having a yummy breakfast at lunchtime and then doing whatever you fancy for the day!
Somehow even though I've hoovered the whole house, done a pile of washing up and sorted out 3 loads of washing today has still felt like a lazy day!

In between I watched the Murray vs Nadal final which was an incredible match, absolutely fantastic tennis, and won by Murray - yay! I think this is his year for the grand slam. It isn't often I find myself getting over enthusiastic about sport, but I do love a bit of tennis lol!

I have been doing loads of scrapping too, and loving it!
This layout is for challenge 1 of Shimelle's "Scrap Like You Mean It" over on UKS - make a layout with your favourite colours. Pink and green are my colours of the moment, and as our wedding colours were pink and green I thought they were very suitable for this photo just after we had signed the register.

This one was for another challenge - this time a Scrapagogo challenge to use up kits from last year. So, as it is January, a challenge to use up January 2008's kit. I loved that particular kit so don't have an awful lot of it left! The embellishments have long since been sorted into my main stash, but I hunted down the sparkly chipboard to add to the Making Memories paper. Another wedding photo, this time from the morning - me having my make-up done!

Holiday time!

Shock - I'm blogging two days in a row!
Yup, today is the day when most people go back to work, but I am on the first day of a 10 day break - yippee!
It is 2pm and I am still in my pjamas - how very indulgent of me. I have been scrapping up a storm, and hopefully will have something I can show you later, the rest is a secret for now!
Christmas is going back in it's box at the weekend so I'm making the most of it. Here is one of my favourite pictures of our tree this year, even though you can't see any of the decorations it just feels decidedly festive to me!

Here's to 2009

Happy New Year!
2008 was an amazing year for us with the wedding and honeymoon, and it looks like 2009 is going to be pretty fabulous too - starting off with fingers crossed buying our very own home!
I hope that 2009 brings you plenty of health and happiness.
