Bugs and Viruses

A quick note to say hi and let you know I am offline for a while. Between my computer and I, we have a couple of bugs. I have a tummy bug that is throwing me for a six and my computer has an awful, nasty virus that effected all of my four hard drives and ate stuff up... including backups!! Not happy Jan!!

As I am still waiting to see what I am able to resurrect from the ashes, I'm offline. If you are waiting to hear from me, please be patient. I will catch up with my clients as soon as I'm back online! Sorry for the inconvenience.

Oh my goodness!! I can't begin to explain how overwhelmed I was when I opened the latest edition of Scrapbooking Memories (Vol 10 No 4) last night. I knew my photography article was coming up, but it is an entirely different experience to open a magazine and see so many of my cherished photos smiling up at me!

A number of months ago, I changed from writing the Click & Crop articles for Scrapbooking Memories and was asked to write some Phototech articles. Photography being my main passion, I jumped at the opportunity. My first Phototech article is in the latest SM...

All I can say is "Wow". I'm so happy with how the article looks and reads. I'm also thankful to SM for printing a thank you to the talented James Debenham for the use of a couple of fisheye shots. Thanks again James. :)

I'd also like to thank Donna for permission to use a couple of wedding photos and thank you to Kristy for including two photographs of her also. I have been trying to email and contact Kristy to confirm permission, but have been unable to contact her. Hopefully she is happy with the way the photos look in print. :)

The magazine is only days old and I have already been overwhelmed with lovely comments from subscribers. I believe Scrapbooking Memories Vol 10 No 4 is available in Newsagents this week (usually Wednesday or Friday).

Scrapbook Creations Top Ten

It feels like a million years ago I scrapped my last paper layout - commissioned by the lovely Dawn Stan for her last Top Ten article for Scrapbook Creations.

The article was finally published in the last (not latest) issue of SC, #52. (Sorry for the shadowed image - it is the only one I have unfortunately.)

I'd like to say a BIG thank you to Dawn for all your hard work on the Top Ten articles and your hard work with Scrapbook Creations in general. Thank you for including me in so many of your Top Ten pieces. It has been an honour working with you.

Best of luck to the gorgeous Lusi Austin, now working on the SC Top Ten. Her first article can be seen in the latest Scrapbook Creations! Thank you, also, for including me... I'm just sorry I haven't had time to paper scrap in recent months. Good luck Honey!!

Scrapbooking Memories Catch Up

I really wanted to keep going with all the Canberra photos, but will have to interupt for a brief magazine catch-up. I've been a bit tardy with adding my published details for my family to read (as a lot of my friends buy the magazines anyway).

This one is a Scrapbooking Memories catch up. :)

Scrapbooking Memories have been absolutely fantastic to me in the past year. I have written a handful of Click & Crop Articles and am now writing Phototech for them. I feel honoured that Kristy (ed.) and the other girls have had faith in my abilities.

Here are a few Click & Crop's I haven't blogged about yet...

Scrapbooking Memories Vol9 No 12 - "These Shoes" - Creating Curves

Scrapbooking Memories Vol 10 No 2 - "Boys Will Be Boys" - Curved Text

Scrapbooking Memories Vol 10 No 3 - "Beautiful" - Clipping Masks

Late last year, I was also asked by Krys at SM to create an alphabet (Scrapabet) and matching paper for the Mother's Day issue of Scrapbooking Memories Vol 9 No 12.

...and was commissioned this digital layout published in SM Vol 10 No 3

Thanks so much to the Scrapbooking Memories team. I love putting together articles for you!!
