Life is short so enjoy every moment.

This past week has been a most strange week with tragedies all round. We lost 2 of our Aussie icons both in tragic circumstances and both doing what they loved. Steve Irwin also known as the "crocodile hunter" and Peter Brock our very own racing car legend. They have left loved ones to carry on without them and my heart goes out to them all. Then of course yesterday (our time) was the 5th anniversary of 9/11. An absolute tragedy that changed the entire world on that dreadful day. I still get teary eyed when I turn the tv on and watch the news of the special programs bringing to us that day and how people were affected by it and how 5 years later people are moving on but how it still affects each and everyone of us. I watch the odd documentary here and there and each time I do I am moved to tears and then I look at my hubby and my kids and I am so thankful to my God for keeping us safe and that we It'shave never had to endure these types of hardships. We do live in a very blessed country and I am so very grateful and thankfu do need to be thankful for that.

Well onto more happier things......PBP has been open for 7 weeks. Can you believe that!!!!! The time has gone so quick, we have lots of members and growing and the talent in the gallery is amazing. But the thing I have enjoyed about this journey the most is the friendships I have made. That's what scrapbooking does it creates wonderful and incredible friendships and I am so overwhelmed by the many I have and the new ones I seem to form almost on a daily basis.

So with having said that this week is the last week to be able to snag the last part of our mega awesome kit that we have been giving away over the past 7 weeks.

This weeks contribution is by Poppy Monkey Designs.



















And it is just a gorgez kit. So pop on over to PBP and grab this awesome kit while you can and just in case you missed out on any of the parts of this multi kit they are available in the shop for a very cheap price.

OK NEXT

Over at PBP we run challenges not just with the scrapping part of things but also with our photography skills and I don't know about you but I could do with all the skils I can get.....lol. Not that I don't take a good photo but there is so much more to a camera then just point and shoot... iykwim!

So our 1st photography challenge is under way over at PBP run by the wonderful Annette, and is a silhouette challenge that has been running since the 21st of August and ends on the 17th of this month. I took the photo a couple of weeks ago and finally got around to throwing it into PSCS2 and just by using the magic wand and the levels a touch, this is how it turned out and I am so stoked with it. The original is on the top and the silhouette is on the bottom.


































My DD Stephanie (yet again....lol but she is the only one happy to co-operate) just in the front yard and the photo was taken with the sun behind her purposely so the shot would come out a little silhouetti then just a little adjustment made in PSCS2 and voila this is what you get. So that's another new technique I have learnt.

OK NEXT

Last week was a terrible week wasn't it?
The photo looks wondeful, and I'm a little disapointed that I haven't had the op to take one yet ;). Oh and the kit, just stunning.. I can almost smell the lemon :)
