Good, good things

Life’s been really good and busy.  I’m almost done with a freelance project for one of my graphic design clients. Just waiting on approval.  That is always good!!

But the best news came on Tuesday when I was asked to be the March Guest Designer for Back Porch Memories!!  The selection came from a contest they host each month where the great Becky Fleck of Page Maps designs a sketch for them and then the current design team chooses their favorite to be the guest designer!!  How cool is that?  I had been hoarding this photo of Emily for just the right papers and mojo and here’s what I created.

I can’t wait for my designer box to arrive.  From the rumors I’m hearing it is going to be a bright and beautiful kit, chock full of goodies fresh from CHA!!

I also just finished this layout.  I started with the Sunday Sketch from Studio Calico, but veered from it slightly to fit my needs. The thing I love about sketches is you have a great starting point that let’s you focus on the rest of the design and elements.  I tend to look at a sketch and then choose photos to fit. Choosing what photos to scrapbook and designing the layout mechanics are what take the longest.  I’m quite the paper pusher when I’m designing, so eliminating that those first steps helps me get more pages done.

The sun is shinning here again today. What a lovely sight!!  Hopefully more snow will melt to make walking the dog a little less treacherous.
