Three Little Goals 2013 digital page

The Pretty Garden 2013 digital layout

This place full of interesting people has been special to me for over 12 months now, and that really helps when making a scrap page. I used CSI's comp #53. Did a bit of spray painting to get the right tone on the page. I'll be able to use it as a draft for later on - the garden needs a nicer sign to let adventurers know what birds / plants are in the garden, so I think maybe a three page spread should do it. I almost have all the birds / plants I need now.

one more day of freedom...

Well, not really. Just one more day of 'holidays' before going back to work - a job I love. I have done a few paintings this Christmas break. Just finishing another one now. I had a really great Xmas day and a brilliant time over at the coast. I even won $25 on a poker machine (the only time I ever play them is when I'm at the coast).

The garden survived being watered by someone else whilst I was away, so I guess I had better look after it now, instead of the 6 months of neglect it had endured. I have been weeding and cutting things back that should have been done in Spring.

Will post some pics of the paintings after this last one is squared away. Then I need to think 3D and do some of the items I have undercoated. Decisions, decisions.

It's darn hot here so far, but I'm managing by getting up very early. I even made two salads today to try and stretch me through, as its just too hot to cook anything!
