Photoshop Love & The Nevada Desert

I had a tragedy when I got home from our computer died!!  Now I say it's a tragedy because my computer is like my right arm.  It was very hard to be without it.  The kids little laptop just did not cut it I'm afraid.  LOL.  So after searching and shopping we have finally ended up with a new computer (with a super huge 23"screen that I love) and I purchased the new Photoshop CS6 to install onto it.  HEAVEN.....I have photoshop back again.   So I have been editing some photos from our holiday and thought I would share.

These are from our trip across the Nevada desert, heading back to LA at the end of our holiday.

I love the shilouette of the first one and the rays off the top of the mountains in this last one.  These were all taken while the car was moving, no time for stopping.............we were late to the airport as it was so lucky we didn't stop!!   I kept myself amused on the loooong trip by taking these photos out the window.  I even took some side mirror portraits - please don't judge me! LOL
I will share more as I play with them.  And will have sneak peeks later of my Christmas Wishes workshop for next Thursday (there is only one spot left by the you want to join us??)

Holiday's Are Over

Well I have been missing from here for nearly a month now, and there is a very good reason for that.  We just took a family trip to the States and had a fantastic time.  Our first stop was New York City.  I love that place.  We spent a week there and it was full on.  We walked and went on the subway and saw as much as we could in the week.

Then we went off to Anaheim for Disneyland, Hollywood and Universal Studios.  I loved the theme parks and Disneyland was just magical.

Then for our last couple of days we went to Las Vegas.  I LOVED IT!!!  So much to do and we only had a little bit of time, so I may just have to go back there again someday.

We had a fantastic time and were sad to leave.  However, it is nice to be home and getting back into the swing of things with Scrap Alley Designs.  I am busy working on some journals and other projects for the Handmade and Boutique Market that I will be at next Friday 26th October at Erina Fair.  I will be sure to share the images of them when I am finished here.  But if you are in the area next Friday, drop by to say hello.
