A quick pic

I finished a quick layout last night of that pretty little rotunda I'd taken a picture of at Penshurst on the weekend. Really pretty the colours, I must go back in Autumn to see the trees in full colour. I've wanted to try this technique that I've seen popping up in various places for a while now, and yay! I've done it. I like the effect.

I'm already starting to make plans, husband and oldest step son are going away camping for the weekend and I get the house to myself clear from Thursday afternoon till Sunday. Yes I know, exciting now, but I'll get half way through that time and be talking to myself or Molly or Bo, but having a long weekend stretching out on my own is sheer bliss! Knitting, sewing, I want to reorganise the craft area I have here that I would be ashamed to take a pic of to show you.

I'm making brownies tomorrow night, courtesy of the good review Bells gave them on Mouthfuls of Heaven, so they boys have lots of chocolatey goodness to take with them.

Hi Carol!
What a great photo you took here and you made a fab. LO of it!
Thanks for your comment on my train LO at DD. I made the combination of sepia and colour by laying two pictures on top of of eachother and erasing the part which should be coloured...very easy!!
