Surely it's not after midnight? I feel like I just got started with my day. Have you had those kind of days where ALL day you are playing catch up? That's been my day. Finish one task and then off to the next. I cannot complain a bit though. It's been an amazing… let me repeat that… AMAZING week. Good things all around have happened. We have a plan in place for Brandon that makes me happy (and most importantly makes him HAPPY!), Russ has been a trooper this week helping tote the kids around the city, and best yet I had a great club tonight that just made me smile big. The one task I had left to do today just didn't get done. The one where I get the camera ready and snap a few fun pics of a fun project I made. ummm hmmm. Didn't happen. No worries. I'll shoot it tomorrow and share. We can really blame it on Russ. I sat down with him after my club tonight and got involved in a TV show. The TV show made me cry and then I couldn't see in the view finder of my camera. There you have it. The truth. Grr.
I do have one thing to share tonight! Yahoo!
This digi layout had a pattern when I was making it. It's called Command Z on a Mac. Or, UNDO! I did a lot of UNDO'n! Partially because it was like Christmas inside my MDS program. This happens when you own something a long time and you forget what you really have. Please tell me you do this with your stamp supplies too? I know I'm great for this. Seriously, I never knew I had the coolest downloads ever in my program. Let me share…
This past week Stampin' Up! debuted the Candid Frames download and it's a favorite of mine. I've used the Downtown Grunge frames like no tomorrow and I'm over the moon they gave me something else to work with. The Candid Frames reminds me of my favorite APP on my iPhone- Instagram. LOVE it. This layout I used the "Instant" Candid Frames. Remember those Instant Cameras and how FUN they were? LOVE these!!
The one thing I am learning to love with making a digital page is adding depth and texture. A simple little slider button makes all the difference. I use a drop shadow on many of the elements and tweak them all differently as to how much I want to see that "POP" on my page. I encourage you to play with drop shadows. You will be surprised at how much depth you can really add. Below I have a list of the downloads I've used. You can find all these in my cool DIGITAL store.
