Summer is my favourite time of the year and I seem to wish the days away all spring to get to the cottage again!  Morning coffee on the deck,  lazy afternoons on the beach, snacks and refreshments on the boat and smores by the campfire are a few of the things we love.  Oh yeah… and taking photos of all of these wonderful memories!

Slice of Summer Digital Kit is perfect for our memories at the lake!  The colours and the embellishments work fantastic!

Digital – Mix & Match Collections

I am a traditional scrapbooker  as well as a digital designer and two of my favourite embellishments are flowers and gems when I am scrapping traditionally.  So… you can only imagine my delight when the Mix & Match Digital Kits were introduced…and in so many beautiful colours!!!

I love layering different flower combinations along with the gems and the HUGE benefit when scrapping digitally is you never run out of your favourites because the supply is endless!  I am going to share a few pages I designed to show you different colour combinations and ways to decorate your pages with these “little gems”.

Happy Canada Day – Capturing the Memories

Canada Day is always a fun family celebration for us and I always like to capture the memories in photos.  Over the years our celebrations have changed.  We always went to the Canada Day Parade in our hometown and fireworks that evening in the neighbouring town.  The last few years have changed with work commitments from the older children and documenting each year helps us remember the changes.

With today being National Camera Day—let’s finish up with series of Getting To Know Your Camera.

ISO – International Standard of Organization or before digital it was known as film speed and not “in search of”.  Well, we are “in search of” more light!

Low ISO – less light and less grain or noise.

High ISO – more light and more grain or noise.

Our pets are important members of our family and photos of them are always treasured.  It can be fun taking photos of our pets, but also frustrating!  Just like children they don’t always do what we want them to, when we want them to.  I have come up with a few tips that you may find helpful.

GO WITH THE FLOW

Just relax and have fun with your pet and try not to get stressed when you want that perfect photo.  If you are feeling stressed they will feel it.  Patience is the best  quality to have and treats too!

Happy Mother’s Day Mom!

My Mom is the centre of our family and we all love to spend time with her, whether it be a special dinner, shopping, cottage time, travel, out to dinner, a walk and or just having a cup of coffee together.  She treasures each and every one of her grandchildren as they treasure her.  Mother’s Day is a day to make her feel as special as she does with all of us.

I try to take as many photos of my children and my brother’s children with her as these will always be treasured memories.  Not just on Mother’s Day is it important to snap those photos, but all through the year.
