Decor8 4 Fall Scrap page



Hello bright color and wild patterns : ) I just don't know what else to say about it. Except that my picture is making some funky pink cast on the right side PP. This was about my son helping us decorate the front porch for fall. I've told you before what a little holiday decorating nut he is - this time no exception. And he really makes it fun for me that way. Was into lining up the metal sunflower stakes and testing them out since they rotated in the wind. It was a good day for us.

Coloring Easter Eggs 2011


Ugh. I've made the switch from Windows to Mac. It's been easy on the operations end but then I was trying to do CS5 and finally gave up and bought PSE 9 (thank goodness I got a super sweet deal on CS5). I have the book for CS5 and now I can take my time and figure that out while I get back to business with my pics. And I'm still going back and forth between Windows and Mac cause there's still so much stuff I need on my old computer and then I can't even remember how I've been doing things for the last two years! Frustration. That and the fact that my old computer won't stay on without being plugged in and gives me a warning message each time I open it and I have so many seconds to click to skip some kind of test thing it wants to run each time I turn it on - which is often since it dies each session. Computer troubles - we've all been there : ) Adam's was infected with a virus this week, like they thought it might be fried and the Geek Squad had to work on it. They had to run some kind of scan for like a day.

So anyway, these are obviously our coloring Easter eggs pics. I wanted to add the pics of them in their Easter clothes but man, this has to be good enough for today! : ) She had the prettiest solid yellow dress. But anyway, again. Zane wanted to double dip his eggs and at first I tried to get him not to cause I didn't want them getting all mucky looking but that's what he wanted and that's the fun of it - so, in the end he came up with the coolest colors. Ha - got one over on mama. He had one that came out blotchy and olive green so he called it the Ninja Turtle Egg.

And now I'm patting myself on the back just cause I got this far. No, no, I'm not cause I just realized  I put 2010 on my collage and not 2011 - eye roll.

Check out this cigar box free printable!

Two posts in one day! I have just discovered Cathe Holden. You have got to check out her blog Just Something I Made (Her work is in Country Living!). Then look at this vintage cigar box printable she has created for her readers! I must say as a vintage cigar box collector I think this is probably the prettiest one I have seen and now I get to create with it myself! And speaking of creative spaces, navigate your way to her studio - vintage amazingness.

On the CK blog!

Alright! I just saw my scrap room on the Creating Keepsakes Blog! How fun! I really like all this talk going on over there about creative spaces! I have to get my hands on one of those special magazines. I saw it at Hobby Lobby the other day - looks incredible - especially since I "know" several of the ladies featured.
