Scrapping and other crafty bits

Sunday, 26 August 2007

You ain't seen me, right????

What was all that about then, the secret scrapping male? It was Shaun - my OH. He came into my secret scrapping sanctuary last night to make me something - I'll post it here when he's finished! But he says to me - don't go telling folk that I've been up here doing this crafting - *cue evil laughter* - if only he knew!!


This is him here, for all to see!! Do you know, he's really good, and he comes up with some really good and original ideas - he's well excited about me getting this DT position; I think I'll be seeing a lot more of him in my craft space!


So, for the HS:MS prompt today we have to post a pic we're pleased with, or glad we captured. It's a bit hard to pick the right pic!! So I thought i might put on a couple that I put into my panel for my Open Uni photo assignment.



The first is called Nosy Cow, and the second one is of my son - you'll be seeing a lot more of him! He's usually the star of the show in everything I do, be that scrapping or photography.
The first image of the cow - I guess I was pleased with it because I didnt usually take pictures of this sort of stuff - usually all of my son! And I've never really been a fan of cows!! But when I saw it on my computer - I dont know what it is but I really liked something about it! It reminds me of that advert - ' tastes so good - the cows want it back', or something lol. The only altering I did to it was to crop off some of the right edge slightly, after some constructive feedback from my OU fellow students. Let me know what you think of it!!

Then this one. My gorgeous little baba lol. There isn't one picture of this little monkey I'm not proud of -yes, I know Im biased lol. But he's such a poser - for ages - and he's only 20 months old mind - he has had a special smile, which he reserves for when the camera is out - he closes his eyes tight and shows off all his gorgeous white peggies (is that a northern expression for teeth, or nationwide - hmmmm....I wonder...) !!
So I'd love some comments - let me know what you think of these pics - what do they say to you? I'd be really interested to know - when you take a picture, a lot of the time it has memories and emotions attached to it doesn't it? So the image doesnt necessarily 'speak' to other people in the same way - do you know what I mean? Or am I just talking drivel again lol.

Love the straight on shot of the cow, especially since that one is so white up against the black ones in the background.
Your little one is beautiful. Love the light in this one.
