You can do what the hell you like with them, add things, twist things, take away things.
You can make them your OWN.
And I have achieved it and I'm so pleased with the results.
I have had 3 sets of eyes scanning for my famous typos and there are 3 thus far.
Lol - typical.
Oh - where are my manners - she is HERE
And what made me specially happy tonight was that I ordered some stash (mainly hambly but I recommend the bam pop stamps) from Angel Crafts and knew for a fact that it was packed before midnight and will be in its way tomorrow. How flamin quick was that?

And I believe there are a few left so go and snaffle the last of them or miss out on these devilishly scrumptious goodies. In fact, I'm tempted to nip over myself and buy one as a gift! Hurry, you dont want to miss this kit one lil bit.

However, despite numerous stag parties lolling about the sea front, wolf whistling at Lauren (erm, who is 14!) waving to all and sundry and high fiving Belle - the entertainment was top notch. I gave them £5 each to spend in the amusement arcades which suprisingly lasted for ages. Instead of winning money, they won tickets in exchange for prizes. Belle chose a toy Princess Atta and Lauren chose a Barbie (sick!). I love Belles face in this next pic, she kind of looks spicy.
Really loved my day becaase in addition to working on the shoot, Mark came home on his way back from the Stag do (wasnt expecting to see him this weekend). Thank the lord he was here - there was a ton of ironing to do!
I have one winner thus far from all the names in the hat for the digi course and Ill pull another one before the course. If you have paid by then, you will get a refund in full. Anyhoo, that winner is Corinna O'sullivan - yahooooooooooo.

Rigmarole is one of my fave words... glad I could use it here to describe belle as she goes about buying the freshest,most softest bread. Remember everyone, buy warburtons bread with 4 days left on the lable...its the law!
This bit of new is one of my most favvo's tonight. For the next 4 months, including this month you can receive free papers which Crafts Beautiful asked me to design for their readers. I was hysterical (happy hysterical) when they asked me if I would do this for them. I also made a number of projects with them too. I cant begin to tell you what its like to work for a magazine I have been reading for YEARS. With the largest craft readership in the UK, I must admit I felt a little scared about getting it right. I based my colours around Autumn, in time for halloween. You can download the papers from here if you want some, but they are optimised for A5 sized paper and not 12x12 digi. They are also CMYK and not RGB.
The Zyuz it up tutorials went out tonight. I have to say that the response was phenomenal and went way beyond my expectation. If you didnt get yours, please check your paypal addresses as some of you didnt put which programme you are running. It is more than likely that if I sent both PDF's they wouldnt have hit your inbox as both of them together are HUMONGOUS in size.
And finally do check this out if you are dying to try Digi scrapping - this one is for those in fear of taking the first step... let me take you by the hand HERE

These are a long time coming.
As opposed to selling action; that simply do all the hard work for you, I have created a step by step guide so that you fully appreciate exactly what your Adobe programme can do. Its no good opening a photo on your desktop and willing that some magical transformation can take place without pushing a single button. The ownus is on you to pull your finger out, get down to mastering the basics and editing the photos to suit YOU. The problem with Actions is this - they can only do so much. You dont have complete control over them as somewhere along the process, images get flattened and there is no back track history to tweak the programme. With Zyuz it up tutorials, you learn every technique there is to know about the fundamentals, as they happen and learning why certain effects do this and how certain effects can do that.
In no time, you will be adding your own flourish on the lessons and become an expert. You will know how to enhance those precious photos that are too dark, too light or indeed boost the existing colours in your most prized photograph.To order these tutorials (at an amazing price of £5 for 3+ one bonus feature tutorial) please paypal in sterling to this address here. State whether you have Elements or Photoshop. Unfortunately no refunds can be given once downloads have been sent but I assure you that you will not be disappointed. Those who have previously paid will receive their tutorial over the weekend. My Elements team have just rounded off the tweaks and they are almost good to go.
And finally - Hooray!
my own website - "colouring your world" which will incorporate my photography and digital downloads for both cardmakers and scrapbookers. Additonally there will be photo editing tutorials for sale and a design service for web pages, logo's, business leaflets and business cards. Im so excited to be able to house all my favourite things on one website.
