In Minnesota it’s still snowing (we just got a few fresh inches this morning) so I thought I would dig out the Olive kit to make me feel a little more springy. We are sooooo ready to get outside–and tomorrow? It isn’t happening. The low tonight is going to be below zero, so by morning it will only be in the single digits I am sure. I never thought I would say this–but perhaps I AM ready to move to California. Even with all that crazy traffic!
What we were up to this week: We had two main events this week, going to open gym time at the rec center and getting sick. That’s it! The cold hit Holly first, and then me and Marie…Justin seems to be doing okay so far. I hope Marie gets better soon…getting woken up nine times (yes NINE TIMES) last night does not a happy mommy make. I am completely exhausted…which explains why this week is pretty much no frills. I have no mojo, and barely enough photos, to make anything happen.
Techniques used this week: Other than brushes, I had a good time recoloring. The dotted paper on the inner mat? Totally recolored. The original is pink–gotta love how with digital you can make papers and elements whatever color you want to coordinate! The “Sisterly Love” 3×4 photo is an image taken with my iphone that had text added with the Photolettering App. I have a feeling this will be showing up A LOT in my layouts in the future.
Other thoughts: I am in a bit of a slump, I truly haven’t been excited about my pages since I completed the title page a few weeks ago. That’s the last one that had me say WOW…..I am hoping it’s a combination of being tired and sick that will go away soon. My husband and I are headed out of town for a getaway this weekend, so let’s hope that my batteries get recharged and I can get to creating (and posting) more again when we return. (Couple that with the fact that a new PL Edition was just made available digitally and you know next week I will be rocking the Kraft edition. So excited about these new kits and I am hoping that will show in my layout.)
Supplies used this week: Most of the items are listed in icons below. The “cute” arrow is an Ali Edward’s brush available at designerdigitals.com, and the photo flags were a free download from Cathy Zielske. Love those flags!
