Sweet Pea

I am always tinkering with something crafty. I have since as far back as I can remember. Between crocheting, knitting, quilting, scrapbooking, and rubber stamping, I usually have something to pick up and keep me occupied.

However as of late I have been playing around with Photoshop again. I've been creating my blog headers for about six months or so trying to keep a fresh look and to be able to practice. If I don't practice or keep using it, I forget After a whole lot of research and playing around with a test blog, I finally figured out how to create my own background and change my fonts on the titles and headings. (Well, the font titles have nothing to do with PS but I think it livens it up a bit.). So this month I created my own header and my background and I really kind of like it.

Another thing I delved back into while using PS is digital scrapbooking. I played around with it a few years ago and really enjoyed doing it. Compared to paper scrapbooking, I save a lot more money and the possibilities are absolutely endless with digital. The only thing I need now, is a 12 x 12 printer, but that will have to come later. For now, I just have them saved safe and sound on my computer and a portable drive!

I've included a couple of the pages I did this weekend. I wanted to take a few photos of my daughter and decided to make it a mother daughter photoshoot. I did get a few really good shots of her as well as of us together (even though the pesky wind didn't make it too easy...mussy and I like how the layouts came out. Oh, and no you are not seeing things. We do have the same hoodie on...LOL. We went shopping last weekend and I came across the shirt and with green being one of my most favorite colors I had to have it. When my daugther saw it she thougth it was for her. I felt bad telling her no because she liked it so much so I got her one too...hee hee!

Those pictures of you and your daughter are so cute. It reminds me that it's almost Mother's Day, and of my mother. Thanks for sharing.
