While I'm watching beach volleyball...

Well, between watching the Olympics and figuring out how to deal with the end of my Photoshop trial, I have been forgetting to blog! 

I've also been pretty busy at work. I had to work some overtime and have been getting stuck there late more often than I'd like. See...

It seems like summer is just slipping away in the meantime. But I'm off next week and I hope I get to do something fun.  Anyways, while i watch some more Olympics, I'll catch you up on what I've been scrapping!

I've done a few pages from the Botanical Garden. I think I have enough photos for a whole book. Maybe I will do a small album. This was Monet's garden, which was just so beautiful. It was like walking in a painting! Credits: Michelle Godin's Jumbo Mats & Masks, Teeny Tiny Alphas, Happy Mom's Day kit, Dreams & Wishes elements from Lily Pad and Newsletter Freebie papers

I love Michelle Godin's style so much. Makes me feel like I've gotten dirty painting! I wish I could be as creative as this girl, but I will settle for getting to work for her! Here's a page with her latest BOYC stuffs featuring a little chipmunk I met at the garden. Don't mock me. We don't have a lot of chipmunks here in WNY.

 Here's one I did for my Block Party speed scrap last month at OSD. It was a pretty crazy chat considering we didn't have a working chat room! This was my favorite part of the garden - the rock garden. I could live there!

I need to get cracking on my Disney pages! This page was quite a monster. I had started it in Photoshop, but then my trial expired. So I downloaded Elements and I just wanted to cry the whole time I was using it. It felt so weird! I didn't know where things were or how to add shadows. Even the menus felt like they were in the wrong places because the name of the program is longer. I am such a nerd. But I finally gave in and got the full version of PS. Somewhere in between versions, the page that I had started got messed up. So I rebuilt this in Photoshop and added more stuffs.

That's just one part of this totally lame story. First I went crazy look through my office and through old DVDs to find this template. Then I extended it across two pages and added even more squares. I am seriously a crazy person! But I think this template and kit are just soooooo perfect for these photos! And now I love it!

I forgot to mention in my journaling that I tried to get them to give me one of these drinks for free since they are using my name! This is an all Sissy Sparrows pages.
