I've had a fairly productive day today :o). The ironing is done, the house has been tidied and vacuumed and I've even managed to do a scrapbook page. We've still got sunshine (woop!!) and I've been enjoying the flowers in the garden as well as my orchids in the kitchen. This orchid has just started blooming again and I like the way you can see the garden behind it in the photo.
The layout I did is super simple. I used one of Cathy Zielske's designs, from her Design Your Life class, which helped it come together really quickly. (I know a lot of Cathy's templates are available over at Designer Digitals if anyone is interested.) It felt good to get some of the photos from Richard and Henry's time with us on to a layout. More to be done and hopefully sooner rather than later!
I really thought after moving my photos to the external hard drive that my computer would be much quicker - unfortunately that hasn't been the case so far. I think I need to get Jon to have a look at it later to see if there's anything else I should be doing. I know there are some updates to go on but Jon normally checks to see which ones I need and which ones I should ignore. Hopefully it'll be a happier computer soon.
Tonight I should get a chance to watch last week's episode of Grey's Anatomy so it's time for me to move away from the computer now ;o) . Hope you have a good evening too :o)
PS> Just looking at the layout on the blog, the background card is more red in real life - not sure why it's showing up quite brown :o(
