LOVE IT....LOVE IT....LOVE IT!!!

I know i promised to share the layouts from the retreat today, but i have been majorly distracted. It was a nice sunny winter day here today so I had a bit of a play with my cannon this arvo, testing out what it could do. Seriously though, i need to read the manual, it took forever to figure out how to turn the flash off lol. Here are some pics i took of rylan after he woke from his nap, so about one-ish i think. Now i have never been able to get good inside pics without using a flash, these were taken no flash and in my room, one of the darkest in the house.





I just love that soft warm glow they all have.





And then i took some more of the kids playing out back on the swing set to see what the sports mode could do. You could hear it auto focusing as they swung back and forth on the swings. Yes i know, using auto focusing, but haven't got a clue yet on the manual settings, one little step at a time i think. Will try and read a chapter in the manual each day and learn a little at a time. So here are some pics of them outside:




the pic of rylan is him actually swinging towards me, at the point just before going back again. This camera is truly awesome.






Okie might push my luck a little and try and upload a couple of layouts from the retreat. They are a bit more simple than what i normally do, but is hard to go over the top when your in a different scrapping environment, you have to be quick and you can only work in a metre space, but am really happy with how they turned out. here they are;

nope, no go. Must of reached that quota again i guess, will upload them next time, it will be the first thing i do, promise lol

till then
take care and learn lots
