About Me

I am a techno/gadget freak. I love almost anything that has to do with computers and software. I have an engineering background, but I haven't worked in that field for over 10 years. I married my wonderful husband in September 2004 and look forward to spending every single day of the rest of my life with him. I love cats and even call myself "Cat".

First Digi Scrapbook page in a long time...

So, I had posted last night, but something happened and my post was wiped out.  No biggy because I didn't have that much to say anyway.  Just was posting a digi layout I did last night.  I haven't done any digital scrapbooking for probably 2 years.  I wanted to test my hand at it.  I guess once you know how to do it, and have something in mind, then it doesn't take long to make a page at all.  This page probably took under an hour to do (and that included resizing and cropping the pictures for the frames).  The kit is a freebie from A Cherry on Top (ACOT).  I know its not Christmas - and the pictures were actually taken about a month before Christmas 2 years ago, but I really like the deep bright colours.  I printed it out on Staples brand matte finish brochure paper also just to see how it looks printed and it looks great.  I really like that paper for printing digi papers for my card making.  Anyway, here is the layout I did last night.  Its of my sweet baby girl, Mitzy.  She's a Chihuahua/Rat Terrier cross and she's so cute and lovable.  She's has the sweetest nature, she so affectionate, and so so well behaved.  Rob and I didn't know we were missing something in our lives until we got her.  We just love her.  Here she is:



I'm waiting for my husband to wake up - afternoon nap - so we can go for dinner.  We like this place in the south end of town call Home Food Inn.  Its a chinese food place, but they have this awesome buffet and on Saturdays they have crab & prime rib on the buffet.  For $19 a person, we get our money out of it.  Rob can eat about 3 or 4 plates.  I can usually go about 1 1/2 and then I'm stuffed.

Well, that's it for today.  I'm working on photographing my storage system for my stamps (my 1200+ stamps).  I unmounted all the wood ones about 6 weeks ago and stamped/scanned index images of every single stamp I own.  It was a huge job.  Its done now and as long as I keep up with it as I aquire/accumulate new stamps, it will be very easy and organized.  I may post a quick tutorial on how I unmount mine.  I don't know - there are like a thousand already out on the net.  So hopefully, the next time I post I have some cards done to post.  I'm doing a craft show next month so I have about 4 weeks to get everything made.  I have almost all my supplies, but I can get the majority of what I want to make done with what I already have.

Talk to you later...

OH my gosh! I can't wait to see your storage system for your stamps. I can't even imagine what 1,200 stamps looks like. Or how much room that takes up. SCS(not2shabbydesigns)

Hello! Found you via your post in the forum at SCS. LOVE this digi layout - love all the colours and the layout - and such a sweet little dog. They really do fill your lives with such joy and unconditional love don't they?!

Hello! I just saw your blog on SCS and had to check it out. I LOVE your baby dog! She is the sweetest little girl, and I am so happy that she has good "parents". It's so great when people who have a little animal are as caring as you obviously are!
Had to laff when you mentioned you were. . .bored. I keep telling friends & fam I wish I had enough time to enjoy that luxury! The idea of having t-i-m-e with no demands on it is mindboggling. Tell me, where to you buy some of that? Ha!
It sounds like you're very busy with stamps and the layout you made in a Christmas theme looks wonderful.
