oh man - my cheesy song titles this week are making me feel sick. My title is reference to "Busted's" teenybop Blink 182 rip off style song. Why? Cos Im doing my first wedding on Saturday - photography wise anyway. Im not doing the official gather-yer-family-up-like-cattle-and-say-cheese! No, no, no! I am doing the candied shots like the bride getting ready and applying her make up, the bridesmaids playing and laughing, focus on the shoes (that we all pay too much for and never appear in one shot!), her hair... lots of arty shots. I really would like to do this for a living but everything in small amounts hey? I met the bride tonight - she is lovely and so keen to share ideas with me. I have big plans to make her photo's the best she has ever seen. She loves the contemporary styles that Im hoping to achieve so wish me luck (and pray for sun!).
Took these pics of Ellie tonight brushing her teeth in the mirror before she went to Brownies - look at her cascading curls ... those curls, I may add are a nightmare to brush. She screams her head off everyday but that's the price of beauty. She adores her curls but not the brushing. I want them so desperately too x Actually when they dry - her hair boings up to ful fluffiness so if she ever fell on her head (god forbid) she would bounce all over the joint!
Ive just found out tonight from my lovely friend Annie ( -'s got a gun - lol!!) that I made front cover of simply cards and papercraft. Im not sure what it's about. I think it might be a "focus on...." about the cards I made for "The Card Makers Year Book" - Whsmith, £7.99. (You tell me - I havent seen the mag yet yet!!!!) Although I will admit the picture they have used was taken 2 years ago when I was a tad slimmer. Hmmmmm... where are those jaffa cakes? Ive nicked this picture of the mag from PractPub site ...... you can buy from WH Smith for £3.50. Now I find im on the front cover o The Scrapbook Magazine with a wee die cut project I did or was it handmade embellies? Yes - handmade embellies - and Annie is on the cover and Mandy !!**waves to my freinds**
Edited to add this baby I made tonight waiting for Marky to cook my lardy tea. I found this picture floating around the office and thought - bum it - Ill scrap it. Im sick of justifying why I scrap myself to both my freinds and my family. I had this convo with Annie last night about the moaning you get with people saying "Look at you - me, me, me" Well, yes - it's me but it's for Ellie too and if I get run over by a bus in the morning then she has something about me for her. Scrapping is about everything including yourself -the artist and the historian and the memory maker. Make memories about yourself cos ain't nobody else gonna do it xx
PS - fancy a wee challenge? Ive made my lubbly freind Anna "lift" this tonight (but she stooopidly did it on 12x12 - this is 6x6) Tee hee. You wanna have a go? - come on - its only 6x6. You gotta doodle, you gotta prima it and you gotta call it "I am a mother" (If you are not a mum - then improvise or just say "I am a Woman")
