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".

In a slump...

I've been trying to think of something crafty to do, but just haven't had any inspiration come to me lately.  My back has been well enough for over a week for me to get back into my craft room and do something, but all that seems to happen is that I end up surfing the web for some ideas.  So I figured I'd take a look at all my digital supplies to see if that would spark any ideas.  Not really, but I did find a pretty scrapbook kit that I haven't used yet.  I decided to use it to do a page about my dad.  He'll be gone 10 years this coming September and I miss him a lot.  Its not a very fancy page, but its a start.  I have a bunch of pictures that I scanned from an old photo album my Mom has.  Mostly pictures of us kids when we were little.  But there were also some of my dad's retirement party.  That's where this picture was taken and it was 18 years ago that my father retired.

 The kit is called La Creme from 300dpi.com.  The font I used to do the journaling is Juice ITC.  The picture frame was created using stock frames in PSPX and then adding borders, and then finally bevelling the outside border.  The little curlicues on the frame are elements from the kit. I used a stock filter to change the photo to a sepia tone picture to match the kit.

So thats all I have for now.

See you later...

Your dad's page looks very nice, Cat! And I don't know about lacking creativity - your Indian cookingfest sounded amazing! :)

Hi Cat - Your tribute to your Dad is very nice and and a touching keepsake.

Sorry to hear you have been lacking some MOJO ! I can relate at times, and always like it better when things come easy for me and I'm totally enjoying my crafts.

I'm very behind in keeping up with blogs and was surprised to see that your are not on the ADFD DT any longer! I gave up ALL my DT positions for the Summer and have been enjoying being free. With Fibro my time is so limited, that it was a nice change.

I do think of ALL the gals I once designed with and wish you all well!

Hoping thinks will be happier and more upbeat for YOU soon!

Take care....
