Congratulations too, Linda - a very good cyber friend! I'm so happy we are in the team together :0)

I have done a layout for this month's challenge. bo

The challenge is to scrap your boy/man doing something "girlie" and add in the title "Real Men/Boys don't" The inspiration was taken from the saying "Real Men Don't Eat Quiche"

I decided to scrap my little boy doing something that warms my heart every day - picking me flowers.

Here is what I came up with:

Last of all, for now at least - haha- I was lucky enough to attend a Photography/Photoshop class held be the lovely Mel from Pointshootplay. It was a fantastic day, and I learnt so much - I can't wait for the follow up class in September.

I have had a bit of a play with some of my photos - for the first time ever I actually adjusted the light and colour myself, and didn't rely totally on the automatic functions - LOL

I have deliborately desaturtated these photos - there is still a tiny hint of colour, if you look closely, haha, 'cos I have plans for a layout which I may do tomorrow, if I finish a couple more "scrappy" items on my todo list! LOL
