My Favourite Songs of Yesterday & Today

Returning soon to a blog near you. New Year ... new music. Happy 2011.

Monday, May 5, 2008

This photo was taken during a Winterlude Flickr meet. A gentleman sitting about 6 seats away took this and I had no clue that he had until it was posted on the flickr site. I have no idea what I was thinking about - or even if it was anything all that profound - but it was obvious that my thoughts that were happy ones. My goal for this layout was simplicity. It's not 100% as I invisioned it but I am pleased with the results. Photo credit go to Total Photo. Thanks, Leon.
(thanks to my super quick scan while at work today, I managed to cut off part of the 'N' as well as the black cardstock around the edges .... but you get the point.)

On a side note ... Happy 4th Birthday to my sweetest nephew, Connor.
Love you, buddy!

It's a breathtaking photo, actually. I love that it is not posed, that it's a peek into a moment in your life (even if you don't remember what you were thinking about, lol). You did a great job with the LO - love the colour scheme, and it really does justice to this stunning photo.

Love this layout - the colours are so elegant and are perfect for the reflective mood of the photo.

Hi Mell - regarding your comment on my blog - I did some post processing on the flowers - bumped up the saturation and contrast to make them pop a bit more. I would love to take a workshop in PhotoShop to understand this more - right now I am just playing around - LOL.
