I was pleased though as it gave me this opportunity to post this picture of DD and her friend when they went to see a production of Grease at the Kings in Glasgow. After the show they hovered about by the stage door to get their picture taken with "Danny"

Well I couldnt think at all what I would use for today's photo, then I was driving to a local craft shop and had to put my sunglasses on because surprise surprise the sun was out so I jumped out of the car and snapped a quick pic on my phone of it glowing away in the sky

I could have gone with the obvious food or drink related one but decided to have a go at making a word cloud with wordle of things I feel are bad for me as they make me unhappy and feel bad
I printed it off and took a picture but I think it could have been clearer but here it is
What is pleasurable - why scrapping and crafting - especially with friends. What better way to chill out after the stresses of a day or week at work than playing with pretty paper and embellishments. And oh how pleasurable it is when a pristine new kit arrives just begging to be cut up and made into a gorgeous layout. My latest and unfortunately for the moment last Gottacraft kit packed full of MME Kraft Funday papers - most of which will be destined to end up in my Photo Fifty album. Great pleasure indeed

Look at that face - the picture of innocence - NOT!
This week I have used all seven of the photos from the 365+1 photo challenge. I did a 12 x 12 layout for this week and did mine as the UKS weekly challenge. This was a good week culminating with a great weekend at.my friend Heathers so it.was.nice to have it fully docuemted.
I might tinker with this page a bit though as its lacking a certain something but I havent worked out what yet!

Well I have to say this was an appropriate one for me. Theres nothing very exciting inside my fridge but as I arrived at my lovely friend Heathers for a weekend of scrapping, chatting and generally having a good time then here's a piccy of inside hers. Spot the box of the Pink stuff - well thats standard scrapping stuff for us - oils the wheels of creativity dont you know!
Well Im hoping to strike it lucky with another appropriate prompt for tomorrow as we will be cropping with friends all day and hopeully I will be scrapping my January Week 2 for my album.

Hmmm well this one had me scratching my head a bit. Not that there is any shortage of metal/metallic things I could have photographed but Im struggling a bit as I want to take photos which i can incorporate in my photo fifty album.i was pondering away this evening after work when myceye caught my wee pogo printer. Ha I thought perfect, its metal and when I eventually track down where I have carefully put the lead for the little blighter I will be using it to print some of the photos for my album. So there you go my take on the prompt metal.

Well what an apt prompt for a very frosty morning here in Scotland. Only problem is by the time I got to work, got sorted out, looked at the prompt - all the frost had vanished. That'll teach me to miss a photo opportunity because as I left the house to get into the car I thought to myself how pretty everything looked. Well there you go - lesson learned.
So as Suzie had said if you had no actual frost to snap then find something frosty. Hmmmmm what to do, I did look inside my freezer and contemplated taking a picture of the frostiness gathering in there but then my eye alighted on my square glass vase which is filled with a mixture of sand and sea glass collected from the beach at Beadnell - you can guess where the blog name comes from now eh!!
So my "frost" for you today is a picture of my seaglass - plain boring glass worn smooth and frosted by being pummelled by the waves and knocked onto the shore - one of my favourite things and I rarely come away from the beach without at least one precious piece in my pocket.

Well today's prompt was excitement
Here is my picture. What's so exciting about that I hear you cry. Well when you are in the middle of a Scottish winter like we are the flash of sun and a blue sky is the epitome of excitement let me tell you. So there you go my take on the prompt of excitement. Picture taken round the back of the office building during lunchtime today

Well the weather in Scotland at the moment and all over the Christmas period could definately be described as ugly, constantly cold, rain and wind. The wind was so strong the other night here are bits of my roof tiles lying in the garden - the bill for fixing that will be ugly too no doubt!!

Well day 2 and Suzies prompt is "new" she was thinking along the Lines of a New present or similar I think.
Heres my take on it. Its part of the introduction page for my Photo Fifty album. The journalling reads that life for me didnt begin at 40 and that I hope it does at 50. I hope that turning 50 is a new beginning for me. So thats my take on todays prompt.
