Beautiful People........

I have just started an online photography course with Cheryl at Feelgood Photos.  It is a 4 week online Portraiture Photography workshop.  Cheryl will send us an instructional PDF assignment to complete by the following Thursday.  There is also a private photographer's forum for everybody to share their images, to ask questions and to chat to fellow photographers.  I am really looking forward to it.  Unfortunately first up is the dreaded 'self-portrait' and like everybody else - I hate being in pictures myself.

Cheryl looked for a self portrait with a 'Summer Theme'.  Well this is our summer at the moment in Ireland - rain, rain and more rain.  Just added the sunglasses in the hope that the sun might come out sometime!!!  Oh, of course, I had company - Bruce.  If I wanted to get a picture of him I wouldn't have a hope.

'You hold your child's hand for a moment,
  but their heart forever.'

Today is a big milestone in our family.  Ciaran is sitting his Leaving Cert exams and Chloe is sitting her Junior Cert exams today.  It is a stressful time both for kids and of course, parents.  Roll on the end of June when all these exams are over and I can have my house back!!!

Hello Kitty.......

Here's a few photos of a mini album I recently made for my Niece, Ellie.  The photos were of Ellie's 6th birthday party in a local Gym.  Everybody had a great time especially Ellie.

For this Mini Alum I used Chipboard pages and paperbags, I covered them in paper from Papermania, Sweet Nothings.  I also used some Hello Kitty Dies.
