Sit, Rest, Pose!

My kids think nothing to having a camera pointed at them 24 /7 which is great but then we end up with lots of ‘posed’ photo’s and silly shots (which are fun but not always what I want). I love those photo’s you get when no-one knows you are taking their photo. I snapped this one of Tony at a rest stop during our hike through the Glenveagh National Park back in 2009.  He was so tired when he sat down on the tree stump and the look on his face says to me ‘relief’. Then he saw the camera!  So now came the silly, fun, posing shots.

I used this sketch from Sketchabilities which I really liked:


I didn’t change much about the LO sticking pretty much to the original sketch as I liked everything about it. I wanted the branches and leaves on the page to compliment the forest feel of the photo’s without too much emphasis on flowers so I toned mine down a bit.


Im still getting to grips with all these layers on a LO – which I love and want to do more of. I like the look and feel you get with so many layers.


In between scrapping I have also been doing a self-paced coure on Photoshop Elements and couldn’t resist the chance to practice my latest achievement of adding different border effects to my photo’s – what do you think ?  I quite like this fuzzy edge border.


  1. The layering on this is totally, totally stunning :)

  2. This is just gorgeous Dee, love the layering and the cute photos! :)

  3. love the layering and the colours :)


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment I do appreciate it :)
