A good day to digi-scrap: it’s cold and gray

I want to keep on these 12 on 12 pages.  I will have to do some catch up somewhere in here and get Jan and Feb posted.  I will just take 12 photos from those months and put them in a collage to get the book up to date.  From this point on I want to do the 12 photos on the 12th and scrap them shortly after taking them.  Creative Memories software makes that easy to do.  Here are my pages from last week.  I was at Sarah’s on the 11th in the evening giving a presentation on BiosLife Slim at the 9th Street Wellness location with Dr. Erin Denil and Sarah and their invited guests.  I always like the opportunity to spend the night with Sarah. I actually took 34 pictures on the 12th and some of them I will scrap into my regular book.  I did get a picture of some geese but not the one that was flying alongside my car as I got onto Hwy 41.  That was great!  I laughed with glee.   I also missed a gorgeous shot of a large eagle sitting on the very top of a dead tree by Shawano.  He was so striking against a very blue sky.  I would have loved that shot.

A Restorative Saturday

It was a beautiful day to just sit and craft.  I was able to do some digi scrappin’.  Got a new Dell with Explorer 7 and have been loading things to it this past week.  I got all my Creative Memories things moved over with tech support from them and when I was working in it today I noticed that while everything is there several of the programs are locked.  I had enough other personal papers and embellishments to work with and I see that I actually have four years of scrapbooks going at once.  I’m almost done with 2009 now.  Thinking smile 

After four plus hours of computer I went out and DSC01301walked around the yard and checked the new growth of flowers.  The bleeding hearts look beautiful and so bright this year.  Then I just had to get “inky” and made a card with this sweet image from Door County Rubber Stamps. These little girls are my favorite series.

And I needed a card to encourage a young lady going through some challenging times.  I was given this artists trading card back in the fall and it was perfect for this card.  There was a W on the one tile and I just hand lettered the IN. 

Hope you get to do some stamping too. Red rose
