Last weekend, I (*finally*) churned out 2 layouts to satisfy my creativity hunger.
This was for an Effer Dare a while back playing with the theme "observe". Was excited to use my favorite new Fontwerks stamps (‘hand’ & ‘god’)! And I’m totally digging the Scenic Route paper (featuring various mathcing patterns on one sheet – I just LOVE this concept – every manufacturer should DO THIS. ). I’ve bought up all of their stuff recently from my LSS.
And this was long overdue. I have a whole stack of photos from Breanne’s wedding above, and a few other friends’ special days. I had fun with the above adding a whole lotta fun cluttery stuff. And thanks Sherri, I can’t seem to put the puffy paint down. I want to add it to every thing!
So, there are some good things from today to be put down in writing:
1. Seeing my first lightning bug last week. I just peeked out the backyard a minute ago, and sure enough, there they are out near the woods behind our house!
2. Finishing up designs for the Dulce summer release! I have to admit the whole creative process when it comes to designing is fun, challenging and sometimes, downright tiring from all the thought-processes! It’s a very personal thing for me…and to put it short, at the end of the day, my one burning question is, "will they (you, the scrapbooker) like it?!" And one great by-product of designing something is the urge to create. That’s where I’m at right this very moment. I need to play!
3. And today, we were checking out trees at the nursery…we are going to place a BIG order next week for 2 Red Maples that are already mature, a few other guys for the backyard, and a cherry blossom tree for the side front yard. Who knew one could be so excited for trees? Well, we are!
4-8. A pedicure. A BBQ. Dogs playing. Neighbors over right now playing pool. And me here with my Miller Lite listening to "Sittin’ by the dock of the bay" and the sound of frogs and crickets outside.
Life is good.
Oh, and Rocco wants to say hello. Crazy dog.
