Speed of light

  While I was having a blast participating in all those swaps this year, I had a realization. In retail they are preparing for Christmas. In just a week I will be starting overnights again and I haven't finished my Christmas cards. Now I am in a last min rush to finish up my cards. Here's 2 I managed to whip up last week.

Simple and easy cards, but that's a bonus when you are on a time crunch you didn't realize you had. I had 11 left to do ..9 more to go. Maybe in my nights off on overnights I can get some made!

Last of 2011 and done done

  Christmas in the apartment. The day after closing on our home. We were ready to move. In fact that day we started moving things into the house. What a crazy time that was. 
   Back on topic, I only took a few pictures so I could enjoy the holiday with my family. I am a bit disappointed my camera didn't pick up on my shimmer background because it really makes the page.  Ohh well I am closing 2011and moving on to 2012.  With any luck I will only stay 3 years behind.

Fanciful fantasy

   As simple as this page looks It took me weeks to figure out what to do with it.

    I knew I wanted to keep the paper as is, but it was very dull with just the picture and the paper. I really wanted to add seaweed but wasn't having much luck in finding anything. I then realized one day ohhh I can use these fish stickers I bought for aquarium pages. DUH! Still the stickers weren't enough and I still really wanted seaweed. I was at a loss until I saw some wave stamps at my local scrapbook store. My friend Amber told me to use something like that but I didn't have anything. Purchased the set , went home,  turned it on their side and colored in some sections. I couldn't have been more pleased.
