I have been so behind in posting my new work. I thought maybe I would submit some to a magazine that wants never before seen work, but I have a hard time not sharing my work immediately. It's the gratification thing. I like to share. I love when people comment! I love commenting on other's work! So, I will share my newest Nikki Sivils projects with you now and then a few other projects that I finished this past month!
I adore the new products from Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker!
Here is a layout that I did using Studio Calico's February kit. I think it was a sketch challenge over there but I didn't get it in time, so I just did it for fun.
It's kind of linear for me, but I like the papers in the kit and painted the letters for this layout with a soft pink. It's a soft layout and the photo is from back before I had kids! It was a girl's weekend out at Niagra on the Lake at a spa named the Pillar and Post. Those were good times! I ws much more relaxed then. I did treat myself to a "me day" yesterday. I went to Weight Watchers (lost another 1.2 lbs!) and the gym (Ouch!). I then went and got a manicure/ pedicure- sigh... so blissful! Lastly, I cropped the rest of the day and night with my good friend (the kind that makes your sides hurt laughing so much), Sherry. While she offered up her house (with no kids or husbands!), food, and time, we created stuff and laughed. I was so relaxed and happy! We ordered Chinese food for dinner and drank beer. YUM! I finished a mini album and she did a ton of cards and a project for classes she is teaching. I felt renewed and it was so needed! Thanks Sherry!!! HUGS!
Today is the last day for official hockey season for Mark. Matt got skates and a helmet so he can skate with Mark today. They did offer an additional 10 week session so we will be doing that in addition to T-ball in the spring. It's gonna be a busy week.... I better get going to cheer on my guys!
