Here's a new digi LO I made last night with for the DT challenge over at AC Bailey Designs. We were to use 7 pics and emphasize one of the pictures in some way. The pics were supposed to be things that were just part of our daily life. I chose a series from one of our recent trips because traveling is now part of our "new life." I love the focal pic of Tim's hands on the piano. I just think it looks cool.

Journaling: Our "new life" includes lots of travel. A typical travel weekend includes arriving at the church, setting up our table, practicing, playing/singing during the service, preaching, and then when it's all over...relaxing. This weekend was in Frostburg, MD. Feb. 13-15, 2009.

Shout out to SheetLoad

I have discovered a great website that not only gives you a sketch to make a card but gives you the "recipe" and cutting directions for making a whole bunch of them. I loving have the directions for mass producing cards. LOL Makes it so much easier since the card design is the hard part for me. Each month they come out with a different issue, have a different sponsor, and show you great ideas on how to use the sketch. Check out their February edition here. The February sponsor was Unity Stamp Company. Here's a card made from the February edition.

Valentines Gift

I just wanted to give you a quick peek at what I made Tim for Valentine's Day this year. For his card, I tried a new technique and used a clear card base. I was pleased with how my first clear card turned out.

Since Tim has to travel more without me and I know he likes to have pictures of us with him, I made him a mini-album of our "Love Story." I didn't put ribbons on the rings because I thought that might be a bit too feminine. I wanted it to be protected a bit when he packs it to travel so I cut the flap off an envelope that photo prints come in & covered it with coordinating papers. I blocked copyrighted photos.

Scrappy give-away

Wow! I didn't realize how long it had been since I've posted anything. Oops! Sorry about that. I'll try to get back and post some recent projects soon. With our travel schedule and me working full-time my "playtime" has been minimal of late.

I just wanted to let you know about a scrappy give-away over on Nicole's blog Crop-a-holic's Creations. She's purging a lot of her traditional supplies because she's doing so much digital scrapping. Check out her blog if you're interested in participating in her contest.
