*~Guest Of The Week~*
All about our amazing guest host Kelly-Marie ;))
...Our Footprints On The World Blog.
Getting To Know Kelly-Marie
Name: Kelly-Marie
Blog name: Our Footprints On The World
Describe yourself in three words: Laid-back (Is 
that one word .. I guess so), trustworthy and friendly.
What does photography mean to you: 
I feel like all though school and things I have never picked up a hobby that I 
am good at or have enjoyed for more then a week. Then my little guy was born and 
I just couldn't help taking pictures of everything he did (not that he did a lot when 
he was first born). Then my sister came along with her fancy camera and took 
one picture of him which looked so awesome and it was then I knew I wanted 
a DSLR myself. Since then my love for photography grows more and 
more as I learn new tricks. For me I just love capturing my little guy.  
What are you working w/ {camera, lens's, fav editing tools, accessories}: 
I have a Nikon D3100 with a 50-200mm lens.To organise and do some basic 
editing I use a free, yes FREE! programme called Photoscape. Then If I 
want some more fancy editing or text then I use things likePiccy.com.
What are a few items on your photography gear wish list: 
My poor hubby is always getting told what new lenses I want to get. 
I think my next buy will be a 50mm prime lens to get those sharp shots.
What is your most FAVorite photograph you've ever taken, & why:
I have a few and yes they are all of Josh, he's my baby what can I say :D
Two of them really capture his eyes beautifully and the 
other is just the most cutest face ever.
Where would you like your photography journey to be in a year: 
Well I actually have a few people lined up wanting small photo sessions 
with me, so hopefully one day I would love to create a small photo business 
specailising in children's photography. With maybe an extra 
little one on the way in our little family to photograph ;)
...................................
How amazingly awesome is she..? Josh is such a little handsome darling.. Please take 
moment to stop in and say hello to Kelly-Marie, she's such a lovely lady..Thanks Kelly-Marie.
With that said, what have YOU got to share.?

Blueberry Smoothie *~ Spring Saturdays With Jane~*

It is so beautiful here today that I just couldn't say 
*Happy Saturday*, it needed MORE.
..............I am writing and partying with Jane today.. :)) 
Please be sure to check out her new blog as she has officially switched to wordpress!
So exciting, fun and filled with loads of new fun adventures!!! Say Hello!!
...................................................
Hope that your week was fabulous and thanks so much for joining 
Artsy Girl and myself here in the midst of all your weekend activities.

I know it's been muffin week this week but I thought I'd finish 
things off by offering one of my favourite on-the-go breakfasts. 
~* Blueberry Smoothie *~
You see, I'm late to the smoothie party. 
I actually don't like juice (ok, fermented into wine is a different story) 
and always viewed smoothies as juice. Until small one's babysitter started making 
them for her on days that they were on the run to somewhere.  She became hooked.
She started to demand them (but in a cute two year old way or sometimes 
in a not so cute two year old way)...Thus I started to produce them.
.............................
Over the next few Saturdays I'll share ones that I've 
discovered recently but this one is our favourite still.
Note:  heartshaped icecubes are optional.
I round up my usual suspects; chunks of pineapple and yogurt...
icecubes, orange juice and blueberries.
For four smoothies I use; 1 cup of pineapple, 1/2 cup orange juice, 3/4 cup yogurt 
(I use whatever needs to be tended to first in the fridge), 1 cup ice and 1 cup blueberries.
Whizz in the blender until smooth (gee, wonder where the name came from?)
And start your Saturday run around C:
Hey, how about a new button?

 
Yep!  It's just about summer (even where I am) let's celebrate each week C:
Now! What have you been up to? Can't wait to see.
............................
Just a couple of 'remembers':
It would be lovely if you'd follow Jane and 
myself through that handy new linky.
Visit lots of other folks (everyone love company)
Please leave your businesses for other fab shindigs.

Today's Lovely Guest Host Is Becky Via  Rebs Photography
Here's some fun bits and treats about her.
* * * * * * * * 
Becky's Lovely Blog URLwww.rebsphotography.comFinding My Creativity 
Becky In three words
Happy, Forgiven, Hopeful(ps... this is hard)
What does photography mean to you
Capturing Memories.  I, like a lot of photographers, got into this whole 
thing to take clearer pictures of my daughter. I loved capturing her smiles, 
and chubby baby rolls ;). So I bought my first dslr last year 
and absolutely fell in love with photography. 
What are you working w/ {camera, lens's, fav editing tools, accessories}
I use a Canon Rebel xti and usually I use my 50mm 1.8 lens.  It is my 
favorite, I got it for Christmas and my poor little kit lens 
gets very little attention now.
What are a few items on your photography gear wish list
Well... I really haven't thought about that much.  I guess a speedlight and 
indoor gear.  I really would love to have one of the big expensive camera 
bodies, it would just be really nice to take indoor shots and not have to 
worry about cranking up the ISO, but I am just learning to be 
the best I can with what I have. 
What is your most FAVorite photograph you've ever taken, & why
This is a really hard one, I've taken so many, but I think my favorite 
right now is this one of my daughter.  We were playing outside and it 
just captures her happy, silly spirit, I think. 
Where would you like your photography journey to be in  a year
I would love to have a successful business or at least be on my way to one.  
I really love newborn photography so hopefully that will be a huge part of it.
* * * * * * * * 
Isn't she LOVELY..? I just adore her lil munchkin.. Ahhh that SMILE!!! 
Thanks SO much for us and sharing your story Becky.. Hope you can all stop
in and say hello sometime.. Lots of fun happenings around creatively!!
Now for my take on the themes this week..............
8PM {Finagle A Foto Challenge Shot}
My 8pm last night..*Instagram* Much needed night out!!
My mom surprised us to give us a night off from LIFE as we know it. We've really had a
hard and stressful week. This totally called for friends and some much needed time out!
We sincerely appreciated it.. WHEW.. I got dolled up and hit the town for a bit..

Spring Saturdays *Grapefruit Martini~*

Happy Saturday and thanks so 
very much for being here.
I've visited almost all of your projects from Thursday, all of 
you from last week and can't wait to see what you are up to now.
So very, very talented the whole lot of you!

For my Saturday I decided to make a special cocktail.

A grapefruit martini
(it's fruit, that has to be healthy C:)
I started with 3 VERY fat grapefruits and
1 1/2 cups of sugar.

I juiced the grapefruit into the sugar and boiled until thick (about 10 minutes).

At that point you have a great syrup that you could brush onto cakes, 
mix with soda water or...make a fab cocktail with using:
1/2 shot of the syrup, 1 shot really good vodka, 2 icecubes and
top with bubbly water.  I love my seltzer maker (I'm cheap and this 
thing has save me oodes of money after the initial purchase) 
but feel free to use any bubbly water.

Ahhhh..this makes the whole week seem a bit brighter C:
What did you do to brighten your week?

A couple of niceties before you share, share, share..

Would you be a doll and follow Jane
and myself through linkyfollowers?
(that's super nice of you)
Also, please, please visit as many other fab folks as possible.
Finally, let's leave businesses for other rad partays. 





Happy Adventuring, Jane Wishing You A Happy Weekend.. Photobucket
