SWEETPEA stamps dt - ELIZABETH BELL




Would like to share with you this gorgeous new stamp from Elizabeth Bell but before I do - I just had an  eureka moment!  I have had my camera for 2-3 years now maybe longer - times flies so fast so it may be longer and I have to admit I do not know how to use it properly it's just a case of luck.  I find a setting that seems to work and I am happy with the results then for whatever reason I click on something and it changes.  Not knowing anything about my camera and a book for instructions I haven't a clue what I'm doing.


Last week I clicked on something and got a number scale up - changing it to "0" as I couldn't remember what it had been previously set on!  Well I know now - not in time for these photo's but it's a light meter and I have now set in to "1" so will have to try a couple of settings but I can't believe it - I've actually worked it out for myself!!!


Moving on and back to the subject in hand.   Yes Sweetpea do have so many new and old stamps to chose from and I couldn't wait to use this one.  How sweet is this little girl?  Reminds me of my son when he was little - boy was he quiet when playing in the sand as the beach!  Still nothing stays the same - he's now quite the opposite loving playing and listening to his heavy metal music at full volume!!


There I go again - side tracking!  So this is one of three newly released stamps by Elizabeth Bell from Sweetpea stamps.  This one is called SANDCASTLES but why not check out the others here.
