Yepperz, I'm still working on birds. Of course if you are a regular blog reader of mine you know by now that I am a birder, a nature lover, that I love anything to do with the great outdoors! I think Janet is going to need a larger, much larger house just to house all those scrapbooks. LOL Sometimes I look at the growing pages and wonder why I am doing this, is it really for her, for her children or just because I need to pour my love for nature into something before it consumes me. Oh well, with five grandchildren, they can divvy up the albums and it won't seem so many that way. :)
Here is the one I did too late yesterday to photograph. I did this one for a sketch challenge at Lil Scrappers. We were to use at least three different papers, numbers and a quote as well as the sketch. Since I love using quotes on my layouts, that part wasn't to hard, but using the numbers was a different story. I rarely ever use numbers and I am still not sure about these. Other than that I am quite happy with the layout.
This one I am very pleased with. This is the one that tells me that I am finally on the upswing emotionally. Since I have been on the downswing, I have needed something to kickstart a layout.. either looking at another layout or a sketch, or a challenge, something to give me somewhere to start, but this layout was fresh. The ideas flowed freely so that made me excited. I am also getting better and better acquainted with my blade which also makes me very happy. Not even a nick today LOL
I had one major interruption today though. While I was receiving some file transfers from Janet suddenly the power went off. Everything went dark and at first I thought "oh no, not my new computer", but then I realized that it was the entire street was out as the store was dark as well and Sophia was locking up.
A few minutes later it was easy to see why.. I looked out my window and instead of seeing the store, this is all I could see.
Unfortunately, they weren't bringing it for me, it just went on by and a few minutes later the power was restored. I just thought it interesting to see a large house floating down our street. Accompanied by hydro trucks, police cars and cable trucks :)
Say a prayer for me tonight please, I am attempting to return to work again tomorrow. I pray that things go right this time.
