Well, did everyone survive the craziness of the last few days? I have to tell ya, I am somewhat relieved it is over! Today, I have done tons of clean up, laundry, and lots of catch up. We have lots of step-parents, so Christmas is a 5 day celebration. As fun as it all is, it is exhausting! Anyway, I finally scrapped LAST YEAR's pictures.....yes, I know, pretty pathetic! Notice the cute little "snow globe?" Kyle drew this in 4th grade. They were asked to draw their favorite part of Christmas. He chose going downtown, Chicago. Notice the little wheelchair? Isn't it cute? I HAD to include this in this layout of the 2 kids. I kept the LO pretty basic. I cut the title with my Cricut. Added some red Doodlebug strips. I also used Heidi Swapp's journaling tags. And that's it! My new motto is keep it simple stupid! (Where is that expression from? Anyone know? )
I have been playing with My Adobe Photoshop. I took this picture of my cute nephew Alex. He got this tricycle for Christmas. I layered the 2 photos (black and white, and color) and then erased the parts I wanted red. I can't wait to print this and scrap it!
I am so behind on scrappin, so I am going to try to do more LO's and less cards! Am I the only nut who feels pressured to create things JUST for the blog? I know that I sound totally goofy, but I do feel I scrap less, because I want to post often, and it just isn't possible when you are scrapping, cuz it takes longer for most of my layouts. Crazy eh?
Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!
