Meet Baby Hayley

When Dana was still pregnant with Hayley I asked her whether I could take some pictures of the baby, to practice my photography. She was thrilled I'd asked. This morning I ran into her after I dropped the kids off at school and I went round her house around 11.00 a.m. to take some pictures. I asked her if it's okay if I put a few on my blog and she said yes. Here's a few of my favourite ones (also been trying out some of my new actions).

Yesterday I also started my Year In Review book for 2007. It's amazing how quickly these two pages came together. I did have a little head start as I'd already pre-selected 20 pictures a while back for January. I only needed 15 for this spread. Jessica's design was 8x8", but when I printed the left hand page I thought the pictures were too small. I enlarged it to 10x10", printed it with pictures on it. I then also printed the page again on photo paper and punched out the pictures with my square punch, which is the exact same size (how convenient is that?). I was a total copy cat a followed Jessica's design completely. This is what it looks like:

Now I've only got 11 more months to go, but it seriously only took me less than 2 hours to put together. The biggest job will be to find 22 more sheet of Bazzill cardstock in the colour bark, LOL!

Thanks again for stopping by.
