Competition, Cameras AND Zoey!!!

~Hiya all!!!
~Do you fancy joining in a 6 week competition over on Scrap Around The Clock challenges? All you have to do is pop over, sign up in the competition group and take part!!! The theme is Scrap Around The World, and there will be one challenge set every week. The judging panel will then eliminate 2 people each week. Are there prizes? YES!!! First prize winner will get a 12x12 album and a scrapbook kit worth $50, runner up will get a scrapbook kit worth $25 and there will be random RAK's throughout the 6 weeks (we might do 8 weeks depending on sign up numbers). Anyway pop on over to Scrap Around The Clock, sign up is open till Friday afternoon (GMT) and the first challenge goes live on Saturday morning at the latest!!!

~So on Monday, Jay and I set out to Ravenscraig Park for a picnic and photography session as you do!!! I decided (in my non-wisdom) to take photos over a high wall WITHOUT my camera strap on my wrist - DUH!! I dropped it, oh my gosh, i dropped it. And there was no way to rescue it, as it was a 30ft drop at least, and it landed in nettles. So I am cameraless........

~Well for a few weeks at least.... this will be my new baby in a few weeks........

It's a Canon Powershot SX110 IS!!!! 9 mega pixels and a 10x optical zoom - so YAY!!! I cannot wait. It was sad to lose my camera BUT I already had plans to upgrade so it wasn't a sad a loss as it could have been!!!!

~I did this layout yesterday.........~.........using Basic Grey Bittersweet. The photo is Zoey, at the Safari Park surrounded by little hearts!!! I was quite pleased with how this turned out, it's quite pretty :D :D.

~This week I also taught a few paint technique classes over on Jean's Art Doll's; so that went well and I cannot wait to see what everyone does with the techniques.

~That's all for now, I'm off to stay at my mum's for the weekend as she's off with her other half... so we are cat sitting. Expect photos of Tom, Toto and much, much, more!!! Jay still has her camera so I can borrow it too YAY for gorgeous other halfs!!!!
