Wow. Stayed up until midnight watching the Olympics and then got up at 6 a.m. for an early doctor's appointment. Ouch. Crazy tired today. I see a nap in my near future. I hope.
I haven't been doing too much scrapwise these days, but I thought I'd share some of my recent CK publications.

"Aspiring Writer" is all about my daughter's love of writing. I took her
favorite written creation, scanned it in, and layered it over a photo
of her using Photoshop Elements, so that her hand written text is
layered over her face (see the photo framed with green tissue paper). I
also printed the scanned text onto normal printer paper and created an
envelope with it to hold her actual story. This was such a fun layout to
create - I loved using my daughter's writing as a design element.

I created buttons with a wood grain texture using air-dry clay for my "'No Hips' Elijah" layout. You can learn how to make buttons like these in the Mixed Media Scrapbooking
special issue. This is a great issue full of awesome mixed media ideas
for scrapbooking. And it has something for everyone, whether you are a clean and
simple scrapbooker, or love to get messy and add lots of layers and
textures to your pages.

"A Mess of Fun" is one of the most fun layouts I've created in a while and it's so funny because it was for the Simple Scrapbooks
special issue, which means I was limited in the number of supplies I
could use. It forced me to be more creative. Oh, and this is
another "must-have" issue. Lots of great ideas! And best of all? They're simple.
Well, that's all for now. I have finally started working on Project Life and plan to share real soon. Like this week. What have you been working on? Or are you focusing more on sunshine this summer?
