Lucy Lamb and Chocolate Eggs photographed with my new compact digital camera.
After months of research I've finally got a little camera that I can take anywhere - it is small enough to fit in my small shoulder bag so really no excuses now.
Jim noticed that the Panasonic DMC-FX01 was on offer from Comet at either the store or on-line (£150) - so he went to our nearest store and, having managed to say no to all their attempts to sell extended guarantees / insurance etc. (who does pay £60 to guarantee a £150 camera?), came away with my new take anywhere toy!

Easter and its more pagan roots are all about the transformation of death into life - or winter into spring - which makes the card I made yesterday all the more appropriate.
I noticed Tinker mentioning Easter frocks on her blog - I never had one, in fact I had never even heard of them before - what celebrations and traditions do you associate with this time of year?
