    { Dreams and more }

    ~ DREAMS ARE ILLUSTRATIONS ~

    Had lots of fun making this layout and have always loved that pic of Quinn, I really enjoyed experimenting and what I ended up with, it shows up a little bit light on the compressed version though. I used brushes by Hybrid-Genesis and a mesh brush by Denise Docherty.

    ~ CAMERA ~
    Yay I have my camera back!!!! Woohoo, it is perfectly alright with no sign of the muck that was all over the sensor, I am so lucky and feel very very relieved and thankful to have it back....life is good ;-) I took some pics at a pool party that we went to yesterday/last night but haven't downloaded them yet, must get to that....

    ~ STRANGER THAN FICTION ~
    Went to the movies on Friday with my cousin and my auntie and saw Stranger Than Fiction, I wasn't overly keen as I really don't like Will Farrell, not that I have seen him in much, but the sort of movies he is in just aren't my thing. Thankfully, the movies I had to choose from were narrow as I was time challenged and was going to struggle to get back in time to get the girls from school, so I was kinda forced to see this or nothing. Well what a FABULOUS movie it was, so refreshingly different, sweet, funny and sad all at once. It had some REALLY great actors in it and there was a real potential for Will Farrell to overact, but he didn't, his performance was beautifully subtle and I think I can safely say, I am a convert. If you get a chance, go see it. Dave, my cousin thought it was the best movie he had seen in the last 5 years, I wasn't quite there, but was very impressed nonetheless.
    ROFL, I just read that back and I sound like I should be on The Movie Show with Margaret Pomerance! hehe!

    ~ SOME OTHER STUFF ~
    Found these links over the last few days, this first one is via a blog link that Lis provided at MAC, not one of those links, but 1 I found via one of those links (boy that was a mouthful, not even sure I know what I mean LOL). Anyway I am addicted, it's quite fascinating watching all these people tell a stranger about their lives. This man is from England and has decided to meet someone new every day for the next 30 years and ask them 3 questions check out Thirty Year Project.com I'd love to see what you think. It actually reminds me of a show that used to be on SBS a few years back where a guy would just stop people in the street and ask them about their lives. It was amazing how open and honest people were, the name escapes me now and I know it will annoy me for days...if you know the name please put me out of my misery ;-)

    Next is a movie poster that was posted at Photoshop Top Secrets.com on the blog there, it is a really great effect on the poster and I am going to try and incorporate something similar in a layout (yeah, sure I am ;-) ). Anyway there is a thumbnail to the left of the poster, you can click for a larger view or go check out the blog.






    Also found these cute little camera bags on Donna Downey's website, they are way to small for all my stuff but I thought they were cute anyway. Would be nice to have one for a day trip I guess where you only need 1 lens and no flash.


    Anyway that's it for me, hope you had a great weekend and if the pics are anything special I'll come back and add them to this post!
    ~ PARTY PICS ~

    OK So I'm back LOL. These three are my favs. First one is Quinn and then my Bronte Boo and the last is my 'neice' Harriet, how striking are those eyes!
    And did you notice? There is not a spot on these pics....*sigh*...... thank you Mr Camera Fixer Man :)
    BFN!

    Ditto to the Yay thing lol! I can only imagine how you must have felt with out it... lol, Wayne was saying yesterday to a friend that mine is my life support...lol, not sure if he was joking or not ;).
    Glad that you liked the movie, and I'm loving all the reviews that you do.. lol, don't get to see much myself, so I love living through you ;). TFS all the links too... have got all the windows open to have a look after commenting here (and all the other blogs that I have to catch up on!!), but that poster looks stunning, so I can't wait to see what you come up with... which reminds me, I finally saw that Beatles cd cover thing that you scraplifted (well the text idea) and it looks fantastic...next on my list of attempted los lol.
    ok... that's enough of my rambling on your blog... lol, you'd think I didn't have one of my own!
    Oh and those photos are stunning Lee.... LOVE them :)

    I think you either love or hate Will Ferrell. I loved him in SNL and Anchorman. He can be overwhelming, though.

    Glad you have your camera back!!

    Totally cute camera bag!

    Ooh that LO is to die for.. something about rainbow colours always draws me in and there is just so much to look at in this!

    Hey did your camera fixing cost much? I have dust spots on, I think, my lense but I am not game to attempt anything too heroic for fear of making it worse!

    I'm having trouble commenting on your blog, I will try again, 3rd time lucky !
    Love the dreams layout, it's so gorgeous and the poem is divine.
    So rapt for you that you have your camera back and the damage wasn't too bad, you (and Brian!!) must be so relieved.
    I love your movie reviews, you are very inspiring getting to the cinema each week, something I say I'm going to do, but doesn't happen as often as I'd like.

    I love your links and that poster is out of this world, I loved reading everyone's opinions on how it was done. Very interesting.
    I'm sooo looking forward to your version.

    The camera bag is very funky, would LOVE one !

    The girls pics are beautiful, they are sooo pretty and photogenic, Harriet is beautiful too with magical eyes.

    I so hope my comment will be okay this time !

    Cheers
    Sherryll
