And then I played with Craft Artist Pro. I realised, yes the penny does take a while to drop, that I could make some banners for my blogs! So having downloaded the free stuff, I ended up purchasing a few more digi kits. A bit of browsing and I discovered the official Jubilee site, with official photos. So more playing, well it is the only way to learn as far as I am concerned. As you can see I am getting the hang of things now, thanks to a bit of telly watching, tuned in to CnC this morning for the Serif program, and learned a few bits and bobs. Stuff I was missing mostly, it was a case of paying attention to the computer screen!
I had a bit of fun with this layout, not exactly my best work, but not bad for a first attempt. I am more chuffed with the two banners I made for the blogs, I'll continue to mess around with the program till I get what I want.
So I was crafting, but digi crafting. Now I'm on the look out for photos of the Olympic torch in our town, got a few, but would like one of it on the Ferry, that would be memorable. I did have a thought about making the effort to go down to the beach to see it, but in my present poor physical state it really wasn't an option. I can't clamber over sand dunes or rocks any more, not like I did a few years ago for the Tall Ships. I wish I could. Still not feeling amused at the thought of further surgery!
And the Jubilee! Well good luck to them, but I also look back on the mean spirited lot who were in government in 1977, the other jubilee, and I was in the army. We all wondered if we'd get a jubilee medal, but some tight wad decided that they'd ration the medals to one per camp! Charming. Alls I remember is that it was a Regimental weekend, meaning all leave was cancelled, and a lot of marching and ferrying about of officer types.
Enjoy the weekend folks, whatever the weather chucks at us!
