I made something!

It’s not much but I decided to jump into Karla’s call for cards. I made this birthday card! I love making cards so why not help make a 100th birthday special!

I’m also joining in Beth and Karla’s Birds & Bonnets Vintage Workshop Swap. I haven’t done a swap for awhile and I really like the inspiration they bring. Sometimes I really need a “reason” to make stuff. Plus this really a mixed media project as it combines digital images and paper! I really enjoy my digital scrapping but sometimes miss the hands on of paper. Some of the buzz words for this type of project are tradigi, hybrid, it’s quite the rage right now! I love using the computer to enhance my projects because I have no talent in the painting, drawing, and handwriting areas!

Anyway, I will be posting as I go on this project! In the mean time, here is a digital page I did for my daughter. I really like how this one turned out. I’ve been wanting to make a black page but didn’t want it to look graphical, or like an advertisement…

I did this for my Scrapdish CT duties and you can see my credits here.

Until next time…

Hi again!

Another long time since my last post. Can you tell the weather is getting nicer? My kids and I have been spending a lot more time outdoors now that it’s warming up. I can’t even keep Jace inside without deadbolting the door! He just walks right out, no shoes or socks! It’s hard to explain midwestern spring weather to a 2 year old. Yes Jace, yesterday was 70 and beautiful but today we are expecting flurries so no you can’t play outside today. I know, I’m the meanest mommie in the world, now go find your cars to play with. Anyway, I got a little bit of scrapping done! You can see the full credits in my Scrapdish Gallery.

My internet switch went flawless! Can’t believe it! But now I can’t get my wireless network working! Ugh! If it isn’t one thing it’s another. So that cuts down on my blogging time, I usually surf and blog on the laptop, you know, instead of reading a magazine or good book lol! Hopefully I can get that resolved shortly…sigh!

My daughter and I painted some birdhouses to bling for Carla’s party but we only got them painted, we’re still working on the bling part lol! Maybe someday we’ll finish and I can share that. Rayna used so much paint on hers that they became demensional lol! And very colorful!
