My Camera has Fish Eye, Sweet!


" Mom just licked frosting off her camera so I guess we're keeping it"

This sounds like that start of one of those, 'You know you're a blogger when..." jokes.

Last weekend my camera's sweet life came to a sad end. It had been gummed up with baked goods and gesso for years, many months had passed since the last button went missing and it had acquired some startling habits in the error department. But it took great pictures and we were pals. 

Sadly, it didn't like being lobbed across the driveway. Ouch. 

So we got the new version of my old camera and it feels very posh and swanky but still familiar. 

And it has FISHEYE. So I had to fisheye everything (I'm mature like that)... 
especially my long-suffering children.


This LO is based on this weeks Sketchy Thursday design:



And I made it exclusively using scrap paper and bits within reach of my spot at the table. I had been using a large sheet of heavy paper as a mask and it was too lovely to throw away.

I even got to use some awesome Ouchless Cardboard from Gauche Alchemy.


I don't usually take pictures and blog them late at night but tonight it just felt like the thing to do. 

Thanks for stopping by :-)

OMG Nicole! My camera met a bitter end a week ago, too (didn't like being flung across the gym, go figure) and my new camera has FISH EYE too!!!!! Freaky!!!!! You beat me to making a layout with the new fun pics, though. Awesome layout! Thanks for playing with Sketchy Thursdays!
