About Me

Married to my soulmate with 2 beautiful girls,and our English Springer Spaniel, Suki. Living a country life in Cambridgeshire, whilst baking, gardening, and photographing our daily lifes, where they find a place on my scrapbook pages.

My little place on the web

This blog is just that, my little place on the web.You will find my daily (or not so daily, hehe)life, my love for my new vegetable garden, baking, photography and my scrapbooking!

My Scrapbooking

Scrapbooking is a way of life for me now.It has been for over 4 years. I love journaling, taking photos of my family and love colour and texture, these are all part of my everyday life and scrapbooking.

The sun has got his hat on...

It has been a beautiful weekend here in the UK. The sun has been shining, we have been entertaining all weekend outside , and the BBQ has been doing overtime. The garden is blooming, we are enjoing our crop of lettuce daily, and life just couldn't be better really!

I am currently doing Karen Russell's Photography Workshop, and thoroughly enjoying it. My camera is coming out more than usual, and I am reallly taking the time to critique my composition, and spend a few seconds longer composing a shot. I have so many photos that when I look back at have really bad composition; a cut of foot or hand. Far too many portraits and not enough story telling I have also noticed.
I am also prone to underexpose my photos knowing that I can lighten in photoshop. All photos we submit for assignments cannot be edited in any way; I am learning a lot!
Is anyone else who reads my blog taking her course, or has in the past?

I also have a new subject to photograph, in Suki. A break for the girls at times, and a good way to improve photographing  a moving target, LOL.

Lots of photos have been taken this weekend,  as I have been working on my shutter speed assignment.
I will share tomorrow as I am on my laptop, so here is a photo of Suki as I cannot resist sharing...

Today we took Suki to Hitchinbrooke Park where she enjoyed playing in the lake, took to swimming like a true Springer Spaniel!
We ended the day with another BBQ; pork steaks, JP's and salad all washed down with a Magners, mmmmm.

Hope your weekend was as good as ours.
Thanks for stopping by

    it might just be us two doing the course.
    I have no idea how to use photoshop or anything technical,so my pics are always straight out of the camera,unfortuntely.
    All karens jargon is starting to sound like chinese to me.
