S.O.S!!!!

Her Space : My Space, here's the message for today.

Show Off Sunday
Otherwise knows as S.O.S !!!!This is the day when Kirsty and I take a little rest and you can post any photo (past or present) that you are particularly pleased with. It could be that you are pleased with the composition of the photo, a technical aspect, or it is just a moment that you are glad that you captured. It doesn't have to fit any theme, so you are completely free to choose and tell why.
I've chosen one of my favorite portraits of the Dinky Diva. It's not always easy to get the kids to pose, so when they do, and it turns out well, it's definitely one for the album.

Over at I {heart} to stamp this Saturday's sketch has lots of scope. I've twisted it around a bit to come up with this.Its a bit of an Anna Griffin tribute! and yes I did end up buying the new Christmas set on QVC yesterday. Her papers are the closest thing I get to 'doing vintage' and I think all those Christmassy embellishments will compliment the Daisy D papers I got the other day too. Started the card rather late last night using an ATC I had already made. Realised it must have been very late when I saw how wonky the ribbon was this morning!

SMO is now at home for a week so we have lots of work planned on the house including a big clear out. Thought I would share a before picture of my work corner, it will be one of the areas blitzed this week!

Thanks for all the lovely comments about my photo yesterday, its a bit scary sticking a photo of yourself up for everyone to comment on! I visited everyone's to have a look at theirs too, sorry I didn't get time to put a comment on all of them. Plenty of cheating going on I see, I think S.P.S. could get to be quite competitive.

Terrie wanted to know how my shot was done and Angela had it spot on, its all in the lighting. I'm lent against the kitchen wall looking out of the back door. There is plenty of natural light coming in to hopefully over expose my face - which has the effect of 'bleaching' the lines, bags and uneven colour!! The camera is in my right hand held above head height. As for next week I think I might have to go out and buy some slap!
