Happy Birthday........

Dad, hope you have a smashing day. Just wish I was with you today to share your special day with you. Since having Charlotte we have managed to have a short break away around Dad's Birthday, but with Charlotte now at school that's just not possible. We have booked a cottage in Devon for half term week with Mum and Dad plus my brother and his wife. I can't wait, we all need a break from the routine of everyday life. So we have that to look forward too.

This is a layout I created last week for the weekly challenge on UKS.

A little close up shot. One of the things was to intertwine some ribbon which made me think outside the box for once.

It's the third week on the photography course with CJ and I'm finding it really useful and again making you think about how you want your finished photographs to look. This week it's all about light and not using a flash and to use reflectors. Really interesting and for £15 for 4 weeks it's pretty good value for money. I just love this shot of Charlotte. It's certainly not perfect and it's a bit blurry, and if I raised the ISO on my camera it would have turned out better. This was taken in the bathroom as it's probably the brightest room of the house!!.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. A lovely LO Claire and great photos of Charlotte. I love what you have done with the ribbons, it looks really effective :)

    I hope your Dad enjoys his birthday - not long now until your holiday in Devon!

  2. Great LO as ever, she is a little poser which is very fortunate when you have a scrappy mother!

    Love her headband! Very Abba!

  3. Super los Claire, so glad you are enjoying and learning from your photography course!

  4. Hope your Dad enjoyed his birthday Claire and the week in Devon sounds just perfect.
    It looks like you are having fun with your photography and the results are brilliant.
    Great LO too, the ribbons look so pretty the way you have done them.

  5. the ribbon effect is so very cool!
