Hi! wow, it's been a while since i've posted...been a crazy few weeks.... my in-laws just left this morning after a weeks long visit. had a great time with them! i love having company! we've lived so far away from family for so long that it's such a joy to have family around whenever we can! we still live 800 miles away from them but at least it's a car ride vs. a 7 hour flight.
well, i celebrated my birthday this past week and my dear hubby got me the most awesome gift!!!! yup, a canon eos digital rebel xti! he also bought me an additional lens but i can't recall it's size..... i'm still learning but have played a little bit and love it! it's so fast! now i just need a new photo printer and i'll be set! ha ha (x-mas is just around the corner, right!)
i haven't worked on many layouts this past week...i did get a nice little e-mail from CK wanting a layout from me! first time being published in CK!!! very excited. i'm sure you've all heard the sad news about Scrapbook Answers? if not, their closing up shop. the pub. co. decided to close them up.....but none-the-less it's sad! there will be one more issue coming out, the november issue. so look for that!
thought i'd share a few layouts....the green layout is for Creative Xpress DT this month...we had to create a layout using our favorite color (i don't have just one but chose green as it's one of my favorites) and the hog heaven layout was just for fun... have a great week!
