It has been a while...

Well it rained, rained and rained all May long weekend here. It was cold and gloomy the entire time...so no yard work got completed around here! When my mom was here - about a week ago - we planted the veggie garden, prennial garden and all my pots...so they got lots of water and moisture...now onto the sun please!

I have convinced my husband that we need a new camera. I have been doing some reading and think that I may purchase the Rebel XSI with a 50mm 1.8 lens. I went to Don's photo here in Edmonton and they were AMAZING!!! I got to play around with it while I was at the store and it took great photos...for a beginner anyways! Do you have any suggestions on types, brand names, lens, etc? I need all the information I can get before making my purchase. It seems a lot of people have the Rebel...I was reading the Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine yesterday and the three scrappers they featured all use the Canon Rebel! Sounds good to me!

Speaking of CSM - has anyone checked it out lately? Jan, Sheri and I all have LO's in it and the store, Urban Scrapbook, was featured on a two page article! Make sure to check it out!!!

A few pics for you before you go...I finished this Pink Paislee canvas album the other day. It is a place where you can keep all your important info such as e-mail addresses, phone numbers, important dates, passwords, etc. I used lots of glimmer mist, diamond glaze, alcohol ink and made all the flowers! It is going to be a class at the Urban Scrapbook soon - just waiting on product to come in - be sure to check the website for the posting on the class and dates!

TFL and have a great week!



  1. The album turned out awesome! The cute frame totally pulls it together! I can't believe how perfect that paper is for it. I also love how you added the blue ribbon. To be honest..I scrolled down and looked at the photos before I read your post. lol!

  2. This album looks awesome! Love your flowers! It's such a tough decision when you're purchasing a camera. So many choices! I have the Canon 40D which I love. I'm not very good at doing all the manual creative stuff, I can never remember what I'm supposed to set everything at! But, if all else fails, automatic works great! I would definitely get the 50mm 1.8 lens. I probably use this lens the most, great in low light. (which we seem to have at least 6 months out of the year) But, after seeing Heather's photos with her Nikon, wow! Ask her about her Nikon.
