What a week!

Oh, what a week it's been! On Wednesday I went to Munich to the Olympic Shopping Centre, which is one of  the oldest shopping malls in Germany. I hadn't been for years (or should I say, decades) and it truly was a revelation! They've totally refurbished it, added bits and pieces to it and it's become really grand! I think I spent all of 5 hours wandering around and I must have looked into every shop there at least once! And what do you know! After having returned from a hard day's shopping I found a lovely surprise on my laptop: Janet from JanetB Designs had asked me to be on her CT!! Not only is she a wonderful designer, she's also a very sweet person - needless to say I jumped at the chance! The team's really great, too - seems to me as if  I've known all those lovely ladies for years! Janet's designs can be purchased at Digidesignresort  and here's her latest creation:

 It's a wonderfully playful and fun kit called "Child's Play". It's perfect for all your photos of your kiddies at play, indoors our out. The kit contains 13 papers and 36 elements, all at 300 dpi. Additionally there is an alpha set, lower case and numbers which can be purchased separately or together with the kit as bundle:

A New Toy

As some of you may already know, I'll be off on a once in a life-time trip to Japan next month.  Of course I want to take loads of photos while I'm there and since my old digi camera died on me some time ago I decided this was as good an opportunity as any to get a replacement. So off to the shops we traipsed and after a lot of trying out and decision making, here it is! My new toy: A Panasonic DMC-FZ 38

Isn't it a beauty? I'm still finding out all the wonderful things it can do and since we've had such wonderful clear spring weather these past few days, I went out and just took a few pictures. Here's a selection:

All of these photos I took in the small medieval town of Abensberg in Lower Bavaria.
