I am talking about Izzy. Seven going on seventeen, a heart of gold, a roller coaster of emotions and a smile to melt my heart! and she does have a hot temper....

And even though we are going through a tough few weeks, Izzy and I, we always end the day with a huge cuddle and a chat. With these chats, it has come to my attention that Izzy wishes to be a photographer when she is older, and has asked for a proper camera like mummy has, well , er, I don't think so hun, but nice try! Peter pulled his old Pentax SLR out to show her and she was so intrigued. If anyone can recommend a small compact and cheap digi camera do let me know.

Also, whilst in Izzy's room putting her to bed last night, i noticed a drawing attached to her mirror, and all her craft stash on the table. When i asked her what the drawing was she answered "Its my sketch for my layout, it makes it easier when you do your layout mum, it shows you where to put your photos and hearts" Well knock me down with a croc a dile!!! The girl has completely "got it"!!!

Here is Izzy's sketch, I reckon I should do a layout from it for her, and maybe ask her to GDT over at Pencil Lines, hehehe.

I will leave you with a peek of this weekends layout.

And this is a sneak of a project for Scrapping Angels November Kit

I must thank a very dear friend today for sending me happy post. I am talking about Sue, she is a pillar of strength, straight talking with a heart of gold. I have known Sue for 2 years this month and often little parcels come through my letter box with choccy delights!!! Today a box of weetabix arrived containing, not the weetabix, but this!!!! Thank you so much hun, you really made me smile and shed a happy tear! Lubs you!

Go and grab your phone, put pen to paper or tap out an email, and contact a friend today and tell them how much you appreciate them.

    Well, not sure of price/availability in the UK but my 6 year old son just got a Canon Powershot A560 for his birthday. It's a great camera, and nice for little hands to hold (he's an only Grandson, what can I say!!). He tells me how to operate it!! Hope you find something that suits.

    Wow, your dd sounds quite amazing. If she is this focused and tenacious at 7, she will surely do something wonderful with her life as she gets older.

    Argos are currently selling a 3.2MP Vivitar camera for £30 (it's pink - very girly!). I'm sure it won't be the best camera in the world, but probably sufficient for what Izzy would want. If you wanted something with a higher resolution, they have a Kodak EasyShare reduced to £50 at the mo, it's 6MP. Not sure if this helps! :-)

    Good on Izzy, she is definitely going to take after you! I have a Kodak, and it is really easy to use, or a Sony Cybershot is another good little camera xx
