My friend, Chris, visited last week and we made this page together using Evergreen.  The photos were all taken at the conservatory at Volunteer Park, Seattle.  You can tell Chris is an art teacher by her choice of subject matter and title-A Living Palette.


Evergreen was also perfect for this shot of Alex.  She looks like a little fairy in an Evergreen Forest.


Just a reminder.  Jopke is having a sale at Design House Digital for her grand opening .

The Little Guy has Lost its Snap.

It took awhile, but I wore out my little red point-n-shoot camera.  Often referred to as The Little Guy, this little Sony Cybershot has had a productive life, but  he just could not keep going. I have lost cameras, dropped cameras and damaged them, but this is the first one that has just worn out.  I press the button and it will take five to ten seconds to take a picture if it decides to take a picture at all.  The Little Guy might just be jealous of my D90 since it was relegated to second string soon after I got the Big Guy.  I wish him well as he takes up residence in the box of obsolete cameras that resides in the garage. 

Since I “have” to have a point and shoot, I purchased Goldie, a Nikon Coolpix, last week at Costco. She is a bit heavier than The Little Guy and takes up more purse real estate.  I am happy with the photos she takes, but I wish she was a bit quicker.  She takes great shots of flowers but the grandkids are long gone from the photo before she clicks.  It could be operator error, so I will give her a few more outings before I decide whether to keep her or not. Check out the photo in the card below to see Goldie’s work.


This card was a “snap” ha ha. In the Making has a great series of templates to insert those great photos you are taking. Meet and Greet contains four layered template and four gorgeous quick cards.  The colors are beautiful and great for male and female cards.  The cards coordinate with the Meet and Greet papers, elements and wordart.

Head on over to Linda’s store at Jessica and check them out.

More in the Store Monday 3/21 @ Jessica

Today I have two new kits to show you.  First is Splendid Fiins Border Bits and the Office. These little clusters make scrapping a page so easy. You can get it in Splendid Fiin’s store. SF_office_border-bits-preview

This is one of my very favorite photos of Connor.  He is a merry little guy.  We are all so lucky to have such a good-natured little guy around.


The next kit that I would like to show you is Cosmo Cricket’s Lil Girl & Lil Boy Paper Pack and Lil Girl & Lil Boy Elements.  Don’t you just lvoe the soft colors in this kit? You can find it HERE.



I thought the saying “Just doing your part to make the world a cuter place to live in” was perfect for Alex and her dress matched the flowers in the kit as well.
