{16 - 22 June 2013 | week 25}

24 June 2013

It's week 25 :)

What happened this week ?

This week included Father's Day and all of the left side of the pages are dedicated to this.  The {today} journal card isn't blank but I've popped a blank one in there and also blurred the bottom photo, I'm sure you understand.

The sun finally arrived and I managed to snap a gorgeous photo of my daughter Molly blowing bubbles outside.  The first strawberries of the year were picked from the garden (and eaten pretty quickly !).  It was the last swimming session, the children have really enjoyed this activity and profited so much from the lessons.

And Photoshop came into my life in a big way this week.  I have enjoyed learning new skills.

  1. That bubble photo is gorgeous!

    1. thank you so much - i must have taken about 50 photos but that was the ONE ! and that's the beauty of digital photography :)

  2. Gorgeous layout. That bubble photo is just WOW. Love it.
    That neat mosaic picture? I'm assuming it's a photoshop trick to blur out the actual picture. How did you do it?

    1. Thank you - and seriously that bubble photo is {straight out of camera} all i did was crop it slightly !
      Yes the mosaic is a trick - i select the area and then i make a {puzzle} out of the pixels in the selected area and then paste it back on top of the original photo. I like it because it keeps the same colours but just rearranges them :)
