A little digital FUN!

June 17th, 2009

Last weekend we actually had time to kick back at home and enjoy life’s little moments.  (of course lots of chores in between)  I took a series of photos as Bray was playing with his bubbles!  I tried to capture a bit of his personality.  So I had these pics so then what?  I have wanted to play with some digital photo collages.  I downloaded some from Scrapbook ETC’s site and what fun I had.  I also got brave and started playing with a few digital elements I had saved and added a bit of pizazz on the photo itself.  I resized the collage to what I think will work on a layout, I uploaded to my local Walgreens and printed.  Waalah!

Here is what I created, I’ll be sure to show you how I incorporate it into a layout!  If you want to play with easy digital collages you can check them out here.

Oh my word I’m super EXCITED!  I have some really GREAT news…and I’m still shocked!

The phone rang the other night and I had retired early for the evening so my husband took the call.

Only for him to come and wake me up to tell me some awesome news!  It just so happens that he received a call pertaining to a Scrapbook Company Design Team Call….yes I said COMPANY as in a actual manufacturer!

I am proud to say I am a Moxxie girl!  I can’t wait to get started and get to know the team!

What a great day!  We had an offsite today for work.  Which meant a morning of meetings at a building that overlooked the lake….then the afternoon involved team building.  BEACH VOLLEYBALL  which I used to LOVE back in my teens…it’s been a long time since I have played.  I’m sure I’ll be feeling it tomorrow.  It’s been cold all week and today the sun came out and I believe it finally hit 85!  Great day to hang on the beach and work!

Reveal day today at Citrus Tree Studio, June’s Easy Rider Kit has a well rounded collection of Glitz papers, Glitz rubons, Jenni Bowlin Crepe Paper, Arrow shaped photo anchors and much more.   Here are a few of my layouts created using the kit.
