I have the most amazing grandparents ever and this week is their anniversary so i have had them on the brain. This pic was sitting on my counter begging to be scrapped :) My grandpa is a story teller, and i love it. I could listen to him for hours and hours. Makes me smile!!! Lo is a circle so i think it will become a wall hanging in my studio!!! I was feeling shabby chic so i pulled out this making memories i have been hoarding(who me? guilty as charged) I loved the colors sooooooo sooooo much. This has a light airy happy feel. I really enjoyed making it. So i finally took the plunge and started submitting some of my stuff to mag design teams and stuff.......Its SUPER scary. art is so personal and im such a softy we'll have to see how it goes.............Oh ya on a non scrappy note, i finally convinced my husband to let me have a cat............We went from dog, to rabbit, to hamster, to cat(he kept saying no no no no no). I can deal with that!!! I'm home by myself all the time and i need some company!!! I have never really been a "cat" person but then it hit me......cats are solitary, do their own thing, dont have time to be bothered with tricks, AND SO AM I!!! i found a beautiful cat at this non profit place......Fingers crossed I can get him tomorrow!!! Look out ladies their might be a million cat los in the future. oh ya and hubs is actually excited about it(And he decided that it was his idea all along? Men i swear)!!!! On another note i have decided to stop swearing.....I swear like a sailor and i need to stop is there cussers anonymous or something cus im already having a hard time :) till tomorrow......... Tip of the day: Notice how my background is white today instead of the usual messy desk? I saw some where online that you should photograph your layouts on some white foam core(i got mine at Micheal's for a project i never got around to) OUTSIDE standing over them with no flash. I never use flash because it leaves weird bright spots on the lo that i can never fix, but i never really thought about the foam core!!! It worked great. all of the lo that i photographed this week turned out great!!! Give it a try.
