OK - this took me a bit longer than a week - but we are having a baby here, and my laptop has been in the shop forever. I really thought it was DEAD - so if you need a miracle computer guy, I'm glad to reccommend my guy Steve, who saved me from having to buy a super expensive new computer right at Christmas time!
I'm on a sort of bed rest right now - guarded over by my extremely protective hubby, so I thought it would be a good time to upload some art. I'm gonna be pretty sporadic until I get throguh the next few weeks of recovery - Max is coming (c-section) on Thursday!
For now, here's a layout or two from Regional Celebration as promised oh so long ago!
These papers are from the Sweet Home collection. I loved how the sepia photos popped against the reds and blues of the papers. We had these pics done at All That Jazz photography - Gabe was particularly cooperative that day, so we had a lot of awesome pics of him and me.
I loved the lettering stamp technique they taught us in this project. We stamped the letters with the Posterboard Alphabet on the frontside of the patterened paper in Garnet Ink and cut them out to make the title. The funny thing is that when we stamped them I thought, "Ugh! This looks terrible! You can't even read the letters - the pattern is too strong!" But I gamely soldiered on and cut them out, and they look adorable once they are freestanding letters. I'm gonna try it with all my busy patterns now - I usually go for more subtle prints for titles.
