Anxiously waiting...

Well, I know that I didn't make it as a Master for Scrapbooking Memories this year...never mind...I was really pleased to be shortlisted in my first attempt and hopefully I will get an Honorable Mention (or maybe two or three!!!). Now the wait for the Masters mag begins, that is about a month away now. Lucky there is so much happening that I won't be dwelling on it too much!

Now I am just waiting to see if one (or maybe more??!!) of my photos in the Canon Photo5 competition has made it to the top 10. That news comes out tomorrow when the public voting can commence! I would so love to have made top 10 for one of my photos! I guess the waiting will soon be over!

I purchased a fantastic new scanner yesterday and I am so thrilled with it! This model does film negatives and the resolution is fantastic. I plan on digitising all our negatives and slides so I have handy access to these for printing and scrapping! Talking of scrapping, I have some great travel photos from the lovely Lauren to scrap for her. She has passed out photos from her recent travels to anyone who said yes to help her get her album done. What a great idea. The challenge for me will be doing a 8.5 x 11 sized layout!! Keep a look out and I will put them up once they have been finished!

Niamh had some exciting news this week, she has been offered a place to learn the cello next year at school. She is so excited about this as she really wanted to do violin last year but didn't make it in. Andrew's comment however was "Why did she have to go and pick one of the most expensive instruments to buy??" !!! Oh well, a year to save for one since the school supplies one for the first year.

Here are a couple of things that I have done recently:




Well that's it for now, thanks for stopping by!

Bad luck not getting a master Katie - you did so well to be short-listed and even to get all the entry criteria done - you are better than me!
