2 in 1 day ;o)

I know, you don't hear from me in ages and now two posts in one day - what is going on!!
Emily took this photo of me today so that I could use it in my monthly tag book. I had my hair cut last night. I had been growing it for a while but it had got to the stage where I found myself tying it back every day or putting it in a pony tail - I didn't like the hair hanging down the sides of my face and felt it didn't have any shape any more. So last night, when we went for our regular trim I decided to have a change. I think there must have been 2 - 3 inches cut off and the sides have been shaped so the no longer "hang"! I feel so much better. Another month or so and it'll probably be time to go and top up the highlights with the sun not coming out as much (ssshhh, I don't want to say winter is coming!) And I thought I'd post the final photo of our sunflower which I downloaded off the camera at the same time. They are just starting to fade now but they have been really beautiful. We did look them up and they definitely are sunflowers ;o) but I can't remember their name. I guess Dad got a mixed packet when he planted this year's sunflowers :o)

Playing with digital

After reading Cathy's blog this morning I checked to see if I had her Monthly templates (which I had) and thought it might be fun to play with digital scrapbooking again. These were the two pages I came up with.
I don't claim to be very good at this and I still think my pages look a bit flat but it was fun to put some photos from this month into the templates and I could possibly see this as something I might like to do and then make a book with them all in once I'd completed a year's worth. Another option might be to use the templates to print out my photos the correct size and use them on paper layouts instead. There are definitely possibilities :)
