How Exciting!!


WOW!! I only started this blog thing last night and I've had such a good response and some super comments in only a few hours! Really makes a girl feel good, ya know??


Okay enough of the sappy talk!! I'm workin' at the library today at my new job in the information department. It is a challenging position but I'm learning a lot and not feeling so totally overwhelmed anymore. There are lots of questions on a daily basis and I'm starting to learn how to find everything. But Thursday night I work by myself.....with no one else there in my department to help me if I get stuck!! Eek! We'll see what happens.


I thought I would post one of my most recent layouts for ya today. I generally do chronological albums, two page-spreads and I am up to when Emileigh is about 12, so I'm only oh...3 years behind. Ha! I have started to try and step out of my scrappin' box and do single pages with one main image as the focus and I'm really likin' it! I've been taking my fave photos and enlarging them to either a 5x7 or an 8x10. Here is one I did a little while ago for a 'girlie' challenge! Well, if you know me or my daughter, you KNOW we are girlie, so it wasn't too much of a stretch! I used a closeup photo of her, enlarge it to a 5x7 and I used Basic Grey Lilykate papers with just a few embellishments. I used some metal photo corners, some Prima flowers, the Basic Grey undressed chipboard for the 'g' and some giant ric rac to finish it off! I love layering coordinating papers and of course, BG has some great patterned papers!
So don't be afraid to try something new. If you see a technique, style or trick you think might be fun, it probably is!! Just give it a whirl! Try new things and be creative!! Have a wonderful day!!

Kimmie, I love your page! I must give it a try, getting out of the box that is. I've been doing the same thing - 2-page spreads. I'd like to try highlighting a fave photo and enlarging it. Thanks for the inspiration and keep up the good work.

Good heavens girl... I leave off email for about 24 hours and you already have two blogs on! Already marked it as a favorite. I did start out scrapbooking, but got hooked on stamping from the first time I took one of your classes. The fact that I went ALL BY MYSELF shows how interested in it I was. I worried that your moving to St. Thomas would mean that the classes would stop, but thank heavens they haven't. If they do, guess I'll just have to go to you to get my fix. I'm not keen on scrapbooking anymore, but the page you did on Em is soo cool! That one I love. Hopefully Terry-Lynn will take to it and do mine for me. Anyhow, congratulations on your blog. I'm looking forward to learning more about you through this. I really enjoy your company... and your work. See you soon. God bless. Love "Reading Linda". Linda D.
