Been a while since I’ve been around. Band camp started July 28th, so I’ve been a bit busy with that. I’ve got a few days before school starts, so I thought I’d get caught up on my blog.
Since I’ve gotten a new camera, I’ve been all about playing with the settings and getting better at manual. We went to Armco Park here in town and found some playground equipment that was fun, as well as a grassy area with a grassy hill behind it. That meant to traffic in the background, YAY! Austin doesn’t like grass. He had fun in the swing, but got irritated as soon as we put him in the grass. Here are a few of the better shots from that day.
The first picture actually had Ashley in it, trying to get him to laugh. It didn’t work, but I loved his expression, so I did a little cloning over top of him.
Dress is still in pieces, but I finally got some interfacing, so I might start working on it soon. I also bought a “little black dress” that was only $10 but 2 sizes too big in the bust and 4 sizes too big in the waist/hips, so I’m gonna have to some minor surgery on it. I liked it and it was a good price, so I thought I’d attempt it. If I were going to make it, I’d pay $10 for the pattern alone, so I thought it was worth a shot.
As for the digi scrapping, I’ve been slacking a bit. I did buy an 8×8 baby album that I hope to use as a Baby Book, documenting Austin’s first year. It’s got 20 pages, so I need to get crackin’! I’ve got some ideas for it that I just need to get down in photoshop.
