I'll get to the highs and lows in a minute, but first lets check out this week's Dynamic Duo challenge...and it's a good one!
I don't know about you, but I was doing a happy dance when I saw these two in the color refresh. I know I've said I'm not a pink girl, but I loved this shade and was sad to see it go. Thankfully, it's back and will be around for some time! While frantically looking through photos, I found this oldie but a goodie. Here's my layout:
My oldest loved, LOVED to play dress up. My youngest, not so much. Sometimes she would make her sister happy, but often times this was the result. A dressed up frowning bride or princess.
I went and used my electronic cutter...I know, but I love a hexagon of late and I had a vision. I used all sorts of DSP and even did some stamping and then cutting to get the polka dot and chevron patterns. I used 'little" from the Fabulous Phrase set just above the Doll. I always told the oldest that her sister wasn't her doll.
When the retired list came out this week, I was most devastated about the Color Spritzer. I love that thing and will keep mine forever! For this layout, I mixed up some reinker in my spray bottle, shook it, then carefully took the spray end out and gave it a little tap while holding it above my paper. I love how the page turned out.
Okay, onto the Highs and Lows.
My high this week is I want to give a big shout out to Vicki Burdick. She is a fellow DD designer and if you haven't seen her blog I have no idea what rock you are hiding under! It was her birthday this week and I so wanted to participate in her birthday hop!....but, onto the Lows.
One low is this has been a week of Technology H-E-Double Hockey Sticks! My *new* computer and camera have both given me quite the run around. In fact, you'll notice my watermark isn't the typical because I can't use my new computer I normal edit on because it has a connection issue, and the old computer I'm using now won't read my camera :/ Instead my card is on it's way to Vicki, and hopefully soon I'll share it on here when the computers are all fixed and happy again!
and sadly, this is my final project as a Dynamic Duo Designer. I can't begin to explain how much Leslie and Anne Marie have given me by selecting me. I'm biggest critic...and thankfully I've learned that we all are! I was BEYOND fearful of putting my creations out there. I scrap my girls and they mean the world to me and to have the thought of someone saying something negative about a layout scared me. Through this blog, I've "met" really great TALENTED people who I was able to call my fellow designers. They have inspired me, and have shared the most kindest words. Thank you all ladies!
So next week I'll be back on the other side, anticipating the two colors. I so look forward to seeing the new team!
