June is here..

can you believe it? If it wasn't for the FREEZING cold, I wouldn't have !

Half way through the year, a few days away from the Soccer World Cup, the year sure seems to be flying by! It is amazing how patriotic everyone gets through sport. I am not a soccer fan at all, but even I have a flag flying from my car (well had.. my son left the window open and it flew away... LOL).

I’m sure that by now you car is all decorated and “pimped” out and you all have your very own Soccer Shirts… see the new class this month to celebrate your Soccer photos. Layout inspired by a Rose Krugess layout.


Yesterday we were took part in the FRIENDS OF THE RAIL PHOTO GALA morning. (see: http://www.friendsoftherail.co.za/) We got up at 04h00 in the freezing darkness to leave home bright and early to be at Capital Park Train Station in Pretoria at 06h00.

We were about 200 avid {insane} photographers and train lovers… all gathered to take photos of the old steam trains doing their thing. Was quiet something ! Tripods, lenses and flashes abounded.. was like being at a disco ! Even the barrage of steam from the train didn't deter this bunch .. I did manage to get a few nice photos out of my 380 odd photos taken for the morning.. LOL. Bound to get something nice out of that hey?

Seeing as I have NO idea when I will ever get time to scrap these photos, quickly did 2 digital layouts so that at least I have done something with them so long.. Now I don't have to feel quiet so guilty.. LOL.


New Classes this month are:

CHERISHED {FAMILY} MOMENTS: Can be used for ANY themed layout, travel, holiday, fun, etc… Not title specific. Using an A5 photo and lots of jumbos, create a layout with a flap and booklet to contain lots of photos.

{MOMENTS} THAT TAKE YOUR BREATH AWAY: TITLE specific page… Use an A5 photo and lots of jumbos. Create a maze booklet to take more photos.

{SOCCER FEVER} : A layout dedicated to FIFA 2010 WORLD CUP. Use those group shots of you and your friends in your 2010 Soccer gear… of your car all “pimped out” with its flags, etc, your party shots on 11 June 2010! A once in a lifetime event, time to get it scrapped… You can also use it for your kids Soccer photos at school…

E-mail me for a full schedule of the classes on offer or to join my weekly Newsletter which is full of ideas and inspiration.

You can also just come sit and crop or do any of the layouts on offer.
