Thank God for Photoshop :-)

Last month at Crafteire some of us had our photos taken professionally by the talented Kirsty Wiseman - just got my CD back and these are my fav ones - especially as they feature my favourite shade of BLUE


It's pretty impressive what photoshop can do for laughter lines/mammy lines... call 'em what you like but all I can say is ...thanks Kirsty!

Just had a busy few days. Last weekend we had no less than 2 parties in one afternoon. My kids have a better social life than I. First it was Leah's 5th Birthday party-complete with bouncy castle...

















Then it was a quick dash across the M50 to my niece Emily's First holy Communion party with you've guessed it...another bouncy castle.

Mental not to self - must invest in bouncy castle business as it seems to be the most lucretive opportunity to fast track to millionaire status in Ireland! Anyway we had a lovely day and I took some photos of Emily in her beautiful dress. She's such a giggler and I couldn't stop her for the photos...
























































This is my dad with Emily - proud Pappy!















Then on Monday I was given an invitation by Annamarie to attend a craft retail day with Creative Impressions (or was it expressions?). Anyway a whole day to play with new products and make things. A nice little precursor to Scrapaganza (8 more sleeps!!!!).


Anyway today is election day so hope you all have gone out to exercise your rights :-)


Chat later
