“snapshot”

Okay, so I had every intention of using this shape on a page today. But we all know how life is so unexpected and time runs out. So instead, I'm offering up the shape once again for all of YOU to use this fine Wednesday! :) Simply use this link HERE to access the ZIP file. This time I threw in a PNG along with the JPG, SVG, and GSD files. That way you can use it in your digital scrapbooking! A little tip. I test cut this this at 5" wide. I know that Silhouette can cut pretty intricately. [...]

my top five favorites this summer

1. Movies: Inception, A-Team and Prince of Persia. All entertaining in their own adventurous way.2. Drink: Diet Dr. Pepper topped with real Dr. Pepper and engulfed in soft pebbled ice. Drink without straw so you can chew the ice as you drink the Pepper.3. Music: Currently? The Da Vinci Code soundtrack (don't know why. lol)4. Food: Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad. Marinate in Newman's Own Caesar Dressing and grill on the bbq. Slice both chicken and romaine lettuce thinly and top with some grated Italian-ee cheese and croutons. Easy. Divine.5. Air conditioningWhat are your top five?

something for YOU to use

I'm feeling saucy.  I thought perhaps you all might like something to play with this fine Wednesday--whether you're a Silhouette fan, a Cricut fan, or whatever digital cutter floats your boat (or at least I hope it works for the others ;) ). Would you like to add this to your next summer page creation? Simply click HERE to download the GSD/SVG/JPG image in a ZIP format. At least I hope I've done this right. lol Then you just need to unzip it using a ZIP program on your computer and place the files into the appropriate directories. I'm a [...]

shhhh . . . .

Do you hear that?That's the sound of silence in my house.Okay, so maybe it's not complete silence since I have some iTunes a-goin', but the girls have left for camp all week. Once again, a little taste of what life post-kids will be like. And you'll be happy to know--well, I'M happy to know--that my computer is back up and running. Fixed yesterday. It was the power supply again. Apparently what I'd bought before was *ehem* a cheap piece of blankety-blank. Obviously. To top it off, where I bought it from is now out of business. Of course it is. [...]

busy for a bit?

Sorry I haven't been 'round much this week. I've been working on a little design project . . . well, and spontaneously seeing the A-Team with my girls (fun movie!), having lunch and a pedicure with my "bestest"--Kristy Banks, and other little doo-daddy things here and there, It sure feels nice to design again though. Nice to get that ol' creative brain working. Exciting.And because I know some of you will probably ask . . . no, it's not shapes. Sorry.  ;)

is it normal?

Our cat plays "fetch".Is this normal? Having never owned an indoor cat, this concept is new to me. I mean, I always felt like our cat thought he was a dog--sleeping on his back and such. But now he plays fetch?Last night I probably spent 20-30 minutes each at three different times throwing his mouse and he'd bring it back to me . . . running like a crazy cat--off me, the bean bag, the couch, the side of the coach . . . parkour style. And he'd come back the same way. It was the funniest thing. And obviously [...]

“father’s day”

Okay, let's all let out a collective gasp.*GASP*I know, I'm doing the same thing . . . right there with ya.It's been weeks since I've scrapbooked anything.Yesterday I thought to myself, "I'm going to scrap a page!"However, this morning when I woke up (at 5:30 to get my daughter off to Idaho!), I was feeling less than inspired. I was just going to share the photos themselves because I just couldn't muster up the creative scrapping energy to do it.Granted, I am feeling motivated to create, but just not with scrapping.Finally. Today. On my way to get my Diet Dr. [...]

little baby bowen

So finally, no clouds and I could shoot this cute little baby! [Okay, so this one above isn't my favorite necessarily, but it's a nice setting. He was a little squirmy and would wiggle his way down in. And I'm trying to figure out the whole "keep 'em decent" thing. ;) ]Thanks to my cousin Tia for borrowing me some of her props too. ;) They worked nicely in combination with some things I had in my home.Having never photographed a newborn--or infant even, my "learn something new" for that day was:To photograph a newborn, you need to do it before [...]
