Crazy Times

Well, here we are, well into October now... where have the weeks been going, that is what I want to know!

Things have been pretty busy here, well for me they have! I have been photographing families, events, weddings and Kindy's. And I am still in the thick of it with another Kindy to shoot next week. Throw into that the fact that we have just finished another lot of school holidays and every day living and it is lucky I have time to scratch myself!

I have however, managed to do a little bit of scrapping. Because we all know that it is good for the soul! Call it my "de-stressor", my way to escape if only for a little while. There were quite a few layouts done "almost" in time for challenges for August and September, I do try but.....

Oh, and guess what? I have just become the owner of a new camera! Yay! I have upgraded to the 5Diii, only just arrived the other day so I am still playing, but so far I love it! The photos of the layouts below were taken using the new baby.

This first one is actually for a current challenge, can you believe it??!! It is for the October Scrap the Girls challenge: Flowers, Two different alphas, more than one photo and staples.

This one I think was for the September Scrap the Girls challenge of Action Photos. Love the new butterfly die that I got myself, it is a beauty!

I think this was Scrap the Boys for September, didn't get it up in time, but I loved the page! The challenge was to use their background as a starting point, hence all the mist/ink/stamping in the background. Also having fun with some new bits and pieces from Purple Pumpkin!

I don't think this was for anything in particular, but I enjoyed playing with masks, inks and stamping.

I think this started out as a sketch for Purple Pumpkin, maybe August, but it took on a life of its own. There are still Purple Pumpkin goodies there though! These are some of my favourite photos of Erin. The look on her face as she goes down the log ride is hilarious! A cross between sheer terror and pure fun!

Well, that will be all for now. I hope to get back with some photos from Binna Burra soon. Andrew and I were lucky enough to have a long weekend by ourselves there during the school holidays. We managed to do about 32 km's of bush walking in two days! So as you can imagine there are a few photos from our walks!Till then....
