I have been practicing coloring hair and skin...and I definitely need to expand my collection of Copics for that purpose alone! Her hair is still a little "striped" but I'm loving it more than my first few attempts! I incorporated some challenges into the card...and well...I think it makes a great little cutesy Valentine!

woohoo! back online...sort of... tore up a hard drive...and since it was my third PC with massive issues in 5-7 years...well we threw in the towel...i'm posting this from my new far I'm liking it ALOT...but it's going to take some time to really get used to it!  Not to mention all of my software that was Microsoft i have to swap to Mac based...hopefully that won't be long...then I can get back to using my camera and getting actual pictures posted...

all in all...outside of the crash and burn of the previous computer...this week is pretty freaking awesome!  see my previous post for additional details!

sad heart...

Well...some of you may know this already...but I have left the Simply Scrapping design team...and it kinda bites to have had to decide this...but my life is a little crazy right now...and committing myself to so many projects a month, outside of what i want to do for "fun" each month...just doesn't compute anymore.  this isn't a bad's actually a good thing...i recently was promoted at work...and have so many projects going on at work...that i've been brining work home so much lately...that scrapping hasn't really been on my mind.  HOWEVER...i've decided that i need to STOP bringing work home (as best as i can)...and on my weekends spend time scrapping for the enjoyment of it.  I am still a part (and owner/founding member) of the SHOE...nothing can part me from my work will still be "out there" just not quite as much as before!  Looking forward to a scrappy type weekend...see ya soon!

It really must be time for me to get back to work...because I think I actually need to leave my craft room for a little while!  Or I may run the risk of scrap burnout!  LOL!  I've been working on lots of upcoming DT assignments and in between project completion...I work on something just for fun!  For my latest...I hopped across some more blogs for challenge inspiration...Pile it On, CPS, C.R.A.F.T, OCC, Little Red Wagon and There She Goes...and here goes my card:

Sunday morning Mojo!

So I was not sure what to do this morning...until I remembered I hadn't played on the Mojo Monday site in off I went...I was really feeling the color teal here is what came of it all:

I've been playing around with my photo's lately...trying to decide what and how is the best way for me to photo my projects...and of course playing around with PSE editor to try and expand my knowledge.  So this particular photo was shot in full sunlight...and only edits were cropping the photo and adding the watermark.  My cardstock doesn't appear quite as teal in the photo as it does in person. 

Supplies: Cardstock - Bazzil, American Crafts, Georgia Pacific; Stamps - Verve, Bountiful Backgrounds and Just for You; Ink - Memento Black Tuxedo and CTMH Ocean; Flowers - Bazzil and Prima; Pin - Making Memories; Spellbinder Nestabilities; Gem and Ribbon - unknown
