My first article has been posted at Aussie Scrapbooking! You can check it out here. If you have any ideas for articles or posts that you would like to see let me know here and I’ll do my very best to accommodate.

Also congratulations to Kate for her new Digiscrapping Design Blog at LazyCow Designs (great name!), head over and check it out, she even has a great freebie there too!

Speaking of Kate, she has some beautiful pictures of one of her daughters dancing on her blog this week, they reminded me of some I took of Quinn earlier in the year, I haven’t posted the layout I did with one of the pictures because I was never sure whether you could tell what it was, (it’s hard to be objective when I took the picture!). Anyway, you be the judge and see for yourself, is it just a blur, or can you see a little girl dancing away?

Twirl Girl

Lastly, I stumbled across these You Suck At Photoshop Video Tutorials on YouTube, at the risk of offending someone, I found these very amusing, and there were a few good tips in there too, if you don’t like, how shall we say, aggressive language, perhaps it’s best not to watch, they are very tongue in cheek, I hope you are not offended. Oh I am worried for you Angela! LOL

I am going to start adding some of my favourite Photoshop/Digiscrapping Tips/Shortcuts to most of my posts (I was going to say all, but don’t want box myself into a corner!), so watch out for more entries. Or better yet, if you have a question let me know :-)

I was supposed to go away with a couple of good friends this weekend for three nights of sloth and relaxation, unfortunately I managed to contract my second case of gastro in the last three weeks, along with Quinn. I still feel miserable and I’m still not over it, so if it doesn’t get better overnight I think I will be off to the doctors in the morning, I am a bit over feeling so queezy and off colour :-(

Also a big hi *waving madly* to some of my past students who I see have joined my mailing list, great to see you guys dropping in, don’t be shy! :-)

Oh and lastly, we spent a night in Melbourne last weekend with some dear friends, we took them to their first Aussie Rules Football match along with some other friends that hadn’t been in years, 6 adults + 6 kids = a great night had by all. And to end a lovely evening we finished it off with another big game of Puerto Rico AND we managed to purchase our own copy! Taught the girls how to play last Monday (Public Holiday), had two games, both of which Bronte won. Thanks to Mandy, Dave, Mallory and Odette for a wonderful weekend.

I laughed so much at the youtube you suck at photoshop, he was very funny. sounds like a great night away in Melb with your friends, I gotta check out this Puerto Rico game.

LMAO! See what that youtube thing did, it corrupted me into using A instead of B ;P.. seriously that “aggressive” language was nothing.. I do live with a truck driver after all hehe….
Fantastic work on that article, can’t wait to see the follow up :).. and yes you know that i LOVE that LO, but have to say it again: I LOVE that LO πŸ™‚
Hope you feel better soon, and that the meds don’t make things worse for you…. πŸ™‚

Well we all can see a twirling girl so don’t know why you think it obscure :==
Your article was great the paper scrappers will be desperate to read the next installments so they can finally live a life fulfilled through photoshop and not scissors and glue and messy things like that….

Congrats on all your appearances around the digi scrapping world! I just saw your layout in the August/September issue of Digital Scrapping Magazine – gorgeous!!!

Congrats on your article, and I adore that layout! Sorry to hear you haven’t been well, it’s going around. This is a dismal attempt to reconnect at a few blogs I have been terrible keeping up with!

Oh, I love the You Suck at Photoshop series of videos! I’m not sure if I’m supposed to, but I have learned a couple of nifty tricks from that guy. In between laughing.

I’ll be joining you in the Through the Lens course, and thought I’d go round and visit everybody’s blogs before we get started. I am looking forward to seeing more of your work. I am loving the idea of digital scrapbooking… do you buy brushes and stuff, or create all your looks from scratch?

Hi JanMary,
Thanks for stopping by my blog! I am really looking forward to the class, it looks like a great bunch!
I do buy brushes, but make everything else myself, including some brushes too. There are a couple of freebies on my blog, so feel free to download and have a play!
I’ll stop by your blog and visit a bit later today, gotta get my kids organised now!
