Early birthday present!

It is not my birthday for another 8 days but michael gave me my present early! This was partly because I had to help him choose it - he wanted to get my a new camera lens but wasn't sure what I wanted so we went shopping together. I got a Sigma 70-300mm lens and love it!
These are just some random snapshots I took of the new plants in our garden - these are from the other end of the garden so the zoom is pretty good! They are just handheld and it was windy so I was pleased with the sharpness of them.
Hoping to get up close and personal with some of the many bird visitors to our garden soon! We spent 12 horus gardening on Saturday and the garden is looking so much better. Mum and Dad bought up loads of cutting from their garden and so we filled up the two empty beds. I can't wait for it all to grow now, I'm very impatient lol!

I have also been doing some scrapping -
I did this page about being 24 years old, and included the journalling from my last blog post! I used lots of yummy cosmo cricket girl friday along with loads of little bits, a lovely new prima scribbles flower and my new heidi swap butterfly mask - so loving butterflies right now!

This is a page that has been sat on my desk half done for several weeks now, and I finally got around to finishing it! This was made using the gorgeous Gogo Feb kit - yes I am still working through my honeymoon pics!
Finally I've been trying to make some cards with my kits too - I do enjoy making them but never seem to get around to it! I am making some thank you cards in anticipation of my birthday lol! I kep this very simple - just some circle and butterfly punches, a few pearl gems and a rub on!
