Thinking on this today:
Be content with what you have, rejoice in the way things are.
When you realize there is nothing lacking,
the whole world belongs to you. ~ Lao Tzu

National Scrapbooking Day

It still strikes me funny that we scrappers have our own holiday, tee hee! But, I am not one to turn down celebrations. Of any kind :)

Over in PrimaHybrid land, we are partying, blog style. That means - I have an 8x8 template to share. The template is based on this hybrid page I made by printing out the photo cluster and digital papers, and assembling traditionally. I then embellished with grommets and rubber-stamped- or -handwritten title, date, and swirls.

Supplies: Digital papers and elements from
Kim Christensen, Amy Wolff.
Traditional stamps from Heidi Swapp,
Sharon Soneff , and Fancy Pants.

This template is a layered .psd file that you can grab here. If you prefer/need a version that is separate .png's, use this link.

You could also create a purely digi page with the template, like this:

Credits: Mad About You paper by Vera Lim,
L'alphabet Dry by Trish Jones,
Vintage Comfort date tabs by Weeds and Wildflowers.
All from

Don't forget, you can recolor that circle stamped brush image to your liking to match your color scheme.

Happy scrapping, friends :)

PrimaHybrid Blog Party!

It's time for the Grand Opening celebration for PrimaHybrid woot!

Check out the fun. There is a sale in the shoppe, fun in the forum, and lots of beautiful art in the gallery. :)

Speaking of fun, you are probably here for my piece of the blog party, no?

The download includes a layered .psd file, a layered .tif file and the separate .png files for those programs that don't use layered files. For directions on using a page template like these, Melinda's blog post linked to in the Blog Party Thread has an instructional PDF.

party on!

It's 2008

wow, wasn't it like 20 minutes ago that we were worried about y2K??

Random Things for me to remember about 2007:
  • .The big kids both are in high school now, as of fall 2007. My mom continues to watch Mark during the days I work(I have Tuesdays at home still) which is a blessing to me and him of the most GINORMOUS amount.
  • . I don't think i read a single book in 2007?? Is this possible? wow. I do my family thing, I work, I scrap. that's it.
  • . My favorite music from this year. Definately Bon Jovi Lost Highway. It made many many nonstop rounds in the cd changer of car. I mean many, like 2 months worth. and I think similarly addicted my mom. how cool is that?
  • . I let my hair grow out longer than it has been since Elizabeth was born, so... that's 15 years- the whole year, I had ONE haircut, in July before I went to Chicago.
  • . I went to Chicago (on my first train trip) and got to spend 4 wonderful days with my friend Terra. We went to CHA show on a press pass from disctalkradio, walking the floor with Heather Ann Melzer, who is a hoot! Terra was just days from delivering Kaylen Hope too (Terra would make a fab pioneer woman). Kaylen was happy as a clam (is that the right expression?) in a sling.
  • . Met a bunch of people that were previously just avatars- had a great lunch with like about 12 of them, and a really fabulous happy hour with deann McDaniels-disctalkradio, Nancie Rowe Janitz, Tracie Radke, Heather, Terra and myself. Somehow missed meeting alb52 though I did stand next to her roomie CD Muckosky in the foyer. and I stood in Elsie Flannigan's shadow. hahaha! AND later met Melanie, who came by Terra's house.
  • . Realized if i posted on my blog more, I wouldn't need to make this list.
