I'm Disneyland dreaming

We've enjoyed such mild weather until late May, but winter has now really arrived with a very wet & cold vengeance! So started looking around and found this awesome forum totally dedicated to Disney scrapping with a fantastic gallery and amazing challenges. Couldn't help myself and entered my 1st Challenge and look forward to receiving my participation gift shortly. I'm in the process of getting hold of my own Disneyland photos from before Colin was born back in the early 90s, so have been scrapping Lynn's ones from 2006. All going well our 2 families will go together hopefully in 3 years time, so will end up with a whole heap more to scrap.

Violets Mini-kit freebie at Christine's blog

I haven't scapped much in this colour range, but am very pleased the way this turned out. So if you like it, you better head over to her blog to grab it.
Sorry, but you won't find the stripey bookplate element in her freebie. It took me ages, but I created it using her stripey paper instead.

Oh Joy

Looks like Christine is having a sale of 30% of her products till 31 May, so a great opportunity to go shopping! ;-)

Have been scrapping this lovely sunrise photo of Barry's, and we are so looking forward to repeating this holiday spot again next summer. Is there a way to fast forward the up coming winter months?

I hope you like this Dadjne & Chloe and that I have the year right.

Update to GIMP Tut: Text along Path

Thanks to Jo Ann (Nanascraps), who advised she was always getting a black filled layer, there was a missing piece to my tut. It dawned on me today that step 6 was missing the select Path to Selection piece of info. Sorry everyone, I'm doing my steps in auto pilot mode. So will update the tut in the next post too so that all is in order (hopefully). Remember all comments welcome.

GIMP Tut: Text along Path

It is finally here, a tutorial on how to create text along a path.

Lets start and hopefully I won't loose you.
Note: Click the image to enlarge and see more detail.

Now these steps should also work for any other shape you come across, let me know how you get on.

It's hard to believe

But this baby girl will soon be a new Mummy herself, all going well sometime late September that is. This is Laura, she's the youngest and I am the eldest of 3 girls. Was visiting my Mum last night for her birthday when we were looking through some photos of Laura trying to find her in baby outfits as Mum has still got a few of her baby clothes saved. She nolonger has this cute wee little green outfit, but the 3 that Mum has saved are now 35 years old! And still look fantastic even my Colin wore them over 13 years ago too. How fantastic that Laura's own will soon be wearing them next.

Lets toast with Bubbles

I hope everyone had a nice Easter, we spend ours at home and had an early birthday lunch for Mum. My sister & brother in-law came over for the long weekend from Melbourne too. It will be the last of her travels back for a while as she's 14 weeks pregnant. Yes, how exciting - I am going to be an Aunty! My Mum too is thrilled, she sure enjoyed her shopping spree with Laura who is looking great.

I should be asleep...

But have been right awake since 2.30ish, so got up finally just before 4am and finished this lo. While doing so, I happened to login to Facebook and found Christine (One of a Kind DS) online so we've been chatting across the seas. This is the 1st time we were both online and it felt we were closer in distance, the wonders of technology. Then something went wrong as my last chats don't think got through to her, but hopefully my lo did eventhough the connection seems slow this morning for some reason. Am starting to feel a bit more tired now, so will get some zzz's...

Hello Sweet Pea

Credits: Sweet Pea Kit by One Of A Kind Design Studio available at Ahhhscrap

I can't seem to grow these yet, it's the only one surviving plant from the bunch of seeds I planted in spring. Never mind, I will give them another go again this year. Did pass some onto Lynn, hope she has a better outcome than mine. At least it looks like my dwarf beans 'Dwarf Golden Butter Beans' are taking of, I have lost count on the number of beans ripening. All growing very happily in a big pot. Just a few more days now, until we can sample our fresh garden beans. Yum!

Time just flies by

Have been very slack in posting of late I see and barely scrapping. The weather has been quite good since our holiday back from sunny Oakura Bay with the Jamiegees, now a distant memory (but such a lovely one). I find myself more watering my vegies than scrapping, but that will all change when the cooler autumn weather returns.

I am writing this post from Tauranga, as we are currently still holidaying here for both Christmas & New Year. This is our 1st Christmas away from home, the reason being that it also coinsided with a local squash tournament at Mt Manganui that hubby and I both entered. Unfortunately holidays must come to an end, and we head back home tomorrow. Our last day here was spend all day at Waihi Beach spent on the sand in 29C temparature, yes very hot and sunny!
