How fun is that?!

Also, our new inspiration at Designer Diaries is up! The topic is FASHION. I really don't consider myself one to have great fashion sense so I had to get a little out of the box! I just love this
design on one of my jackets.
So I scanned m jacket and loaded it in Adobe Photoshop. I cropped part of the design that I love and printed it out. (The brown scrolls) I then traced it onto the paper I was using in the layout. The orange scrolls on either side of the main photo are the end result!!! It was a fun new technique!



What a gorgeous day it was today! It reached 68 degrees and was sunny. Perfect! We went to the Lander's to eat with the family. Yum! Kennedy has had a cold and not been feeling well. But she was sweet as can be, patient and cute! She loved chasing the birds and squirrels outdoors! And playing with dad's cell phone!

I recently found out about a wonderful photo editing program and have had so much fun playing with my photos! What do you think?!

I have also had a chance to do some altering! I made a fun door hanger for Kennedy's room and am working on altering a cookie sheet! Too fun! Hope to share them soon!


Fun Scrappin' News!

I got some fun scrapping news last week! I had two layouts picked up by Paper Art magazine! I have never worked with that magazine so I am ecstatic! I also got 2nd place in a contest at http://www.createmykeepsake.com/ It was one of my favorite layouts!

The owner, Rebecca, was so generous in her prize pack! I got some delicious My Mind's Eye Bohemia papers with matching rub ons, die cuts, gems and overlays! And she also sent the Designing With 2007 calendar! Thanks again Rebecca!!

I also just have to share some recent photos of my darling girl! She did an amazing job trick or treating in the FREEZING weather!

Here she is just goofing around one afternoon eating her "nack!"

Here she is doing her favorite activity! READING!!!!!!! And a bilingual book to boot!

This photo was taken today and she was just being so adorable! The weather was amazing so we were able to play outdoors again!


Weekend of fun!!!!!!

This layout is the latest Designer Diaries Inspiration! The theme was "What If..." I adore this photo of Kennedy and will possibly scrap it again. I am really glad I had a chance to scrap those thoughts. I am in love with the My Mind's Eye Bohemia line I used here. YUM!

We had visitors this weekend and Kennedy (and all of us really) had a blast!

Friday night night we went to the circus with Grandpa Lou. Kennedy was only somewhat interested. She really enjoyed the lights and all the cool things they did. She liked some of the performers but got tired toward the end of the evening. We adults had a great time!

Saturday the guys went to the K-State/Iowa State game. So Grandma Lori, Kennedy and I hit the town! And had a blast!

Sunday we had a great time playing in the leaves, visiting the dog park and carving pumpkins! A VERY enjoyable weekend!
