Lunch Time (zoo 2 pager)

Between yesterday and today evening, I completed another zoo 2 pager.

I worked a lot on the pictures and the shadows and I’m really happy about it because I learnt a lot during the process.

Yet Another Zoo LO

Busy weekend (lots of social events :)) but it was quite fun.

I scrapped another zoo LO yesterday.
(in case you were wondering.. No, the zoo LOs aren’t finished yet! ๐Ÿ˜› I plan to do another 2-3 since I have some more cute pictures.)

Not your typical zoo colors, but then, why not? ๐Ÿ™‚

Zoo Reflections

I did another LO from the pics from our visit to the zoo in late August.

I’m very happy with this LO because we took a lot of pictures at the zoo, but I decided to put these 2 together and do a page on reflections.

Operation Spruce: the other LOs

Following up on the LO I did the other night for the Speed Scrap, I scrapped 3 more pages about our adventure planting the spruce in our garden. I had fun doing them!

So here’s the 4 pages all together.

The credits are the same of the 1st page and can be found here.

Speed Scrap at ScrapMatters

I did a speed scrap at ScrapMatters tonight! I had missed the last few so I’m especially glad I was there for this one.

I think it was one I finished in less time!
Here’s the instructions:

1. Choose three photos. No more, no less.
2. Chose two solid papers. Use one for the background, the other to mat your three photos.ย They can be three individual matsย or one mat for all three, your choice.
3. Use something metal to attach your photos to the mat (i.e.: staples, brads, clips).
4. There must be a star somewhere on the LO.
5. Add a swirl somewhere.
6. Title, you must use word art. You can make the word art yourself!

7. Journal, date and post.
and here’s my LO:

I’m very happy with it!!
Of course, it will become a 2 pager, because actually planting the spruce in the garden was quite an adventure! ๐Ÿ™‚

Birthday LO

My birthday and my dad’s are only 6 days apart. However, a few thousand miles separated us this year and we couldn’t celebrate together.

In addition to that, this year my Dad turned 70, so it was an important birthday! I was so sorry not to be there! So I asked my Mom to take some pictures, and she did a pretty good job (she’s a hopelessly lousy photographer! :)).
Yesterday night I worked on a 2 page LO for our birthdays and I’m in love with it!
(sorry for the blur in the pic but I had to cancel the locations)

Misty Cato CT Call

Misty Cato, designer of one of the blogs I regularly stalk, and undoubtedly the tutorial queen, is having a CT Call. (See her blog for details – link in my blog list on the right)

So I decided to give it a try!

Singing Husband

My husband joined the choir at our church!
I’m very proud of him and I know he’s very happy to sing there.
We’ve been going to our church for a year now, but my husband never inquired about joining the choir. Then, a couple weeks ago, one choir member heard my husband sing during Mass and asked him to join the choir.
So yesterday, 1st day after summer vacation, the choir was back, and my husband was in it!
It felt a bit awkward to sit in the pew without him ๐Ÿ™ but I’m happy for him.
He sure looks handsome in the blue gown!
