I have made HUGE progress working on my album these past few days. I’m posting in small batches so as not to bore/overwhelm people LOL. I’m so glad I made the design decisions that I did, it has made focusing on the story much easier. Here we go…
Very happy with how these are coming together!
Happy end of December!
OK, it’s really not the warm up…I thought it started today, not tomorrow. AT ANY rate, I have been doing something creative every day so far in 2018 (I’ve missed one day). I have however, not been documenting it. So to add another layer of complexity to my life I am going to be participating in the #The100DayProject for the first time… I will be sharing my daily posts on Instagram, but I have to say probably not posting every day here, because that would be rather redundant BUT maybe several process posts ? I’m not sure yet. But for NOW I give you Halloween ca. 1973. Charlie is in the middle flanked by his sisters. I’ve been working on a Halloween through the years album. The plan is to have as many generations as possible and so far I’ve got some layouts done of our girls, Charlie as a kid, and Charlie and I as adults. I have photos of Charlie’s parents as young marrieds having a halloween party and somewhere there has to be photos of me (because there are so many the odds are in my favor). So that’s been a fun little project on which to work. A bit of warm up for the next 100 days.
I’m anticipating that my something creative will continue to be a mix of knitting, sewing, photo editing and scrapbooking. I’m not sure if gardening will count if it ever finally warms up! We’ll see how it goes.
Really, I have been loads of other things besides digi-scrapping but they are just so much easier to share ! Heading off to a girlfriend adventure this week but wanted to share the latest layouts I did for my buddy Janet from Little Feet Digital Designs. So much fun working with her beautiful kits!
Solar Eclipse 2017
I will admit we were kind of eclipse slackers but it was still worth commemorating the event if nothing else than to use the gorgeous images from NASA! Kit: Total Eclipse of the Heart
I have to admit when the suggestion was made to use the kit Land of dreams, the Whitie Tightie papers AND the A Little Privacy Please embellishments I did kind of pause and think how I was going to pull this all together…then I was scrolling thru my photos in Lightroom and found this photo of Lily from a photo shoot the girls did and bingo… ladies and gentleman we have a moment in time documented!
At what point will the girls not want to go pumpkin fetching with me? We’ll see next week but I thought it would be a fun thing to document from a few years ago… Template: Clean and Simple Templates: Fall Beauty Kit: Summer Fades
Anyone who knows me knows that I love Texas! It was heartbreaking to see the devastation from the hurricane. Janet designed a Texas Strong kit with templates from her partner Dagi’s Digital Designs and is donating all proceeds to hurricane relief. We also donated to the United Methodist Committee on Relief Fund for hurricane relief as well as Undies for Everyone… because everyone needs clean new underwear.
Hope everyone enjoys the bonus Monday off…it’s rainy here which is great for much needed rain!
