North and South

I just finished watching this movie again tonight. Best.ending.ever. *sigh* And now I want to watch it again. For those of you who haven't seen it, it's streaming on Netflix.

Let them eat cupcakes!

Audrey Neal, another one of our DHD designers is retiring all of her kits and they are on sale at the DHD shop. I created this layout using her confetti and cupcakes kit. This was on Trotwood's first birthday.

Funny faces

I love all of the funny, little faces Trotwood makes. This photo was taken last year in October. Gennifer Bursett, one of the designers at DHD is retiring her kits and I'm so sad to see her go! She has been such an integral part of the DHD community. This is a recent page I made using some of her Halloween kits.

I recently participated in the digimorph at DHD and I was first in line on my team to scraplift the chosen layout below. Digimorph is kind of like the game of telephone. We have a team and each person on the team is supposed to scraplift or use elements or ideas from the previous person's layout in their own layout. I like scraplifting because I feel like I always get new ideas by designing from another's person's layout.
Here's what I came up with.

Trick or treat

October has just flown by and I've been a bit behind on my scrapbooking this month. We've been out of town a few weekends this month and had assignments due but this weekend, I finally have a weekend with hardly anything planned so I'm hoping  I'll be able to get some more scrapbooking done. In the meantime, here's one I did for the DHD 4Play feature at the beginning of the month.

Spooky Halloween Tree

This week has been one of the most exhausting weeks of my life because of sheer busyness and bad scheduling on my part. One of those things consisted of my volunteering to do a digital hybrid project and blog about it over at Design House Digital. I'm not what you call a very crafty person mainly because with what little leisure time I have, I usually try to relax or sleep instead of glue things together. Another reason why I started digital scrapbooking - it IS relaxing just to do this on a laptop and takes so much less time because it doesn't involve cutting things out or sewing things together. Anyway, despite how I still need to begin and finish a huge assignment for one of my classes by tomorrow night at midnight, I am glad I signed up to do the project. I've wanted to do a spooky Halloween tree for years and I really like how this turned out. Here's a picture of the tree and here's the link to my tutorial: Spooky Halloween Tree.

20 lbs and counting!

Just had to share, Mr. Rochester and I have been trying to lose weight for several months now (I did have a baby earlier this year), and I finally hit the 20 lb mark! For the last few weeks, I've been hovering between the 18 and 19 lb mark but yesterday morning, I finally reached 20 lbs. Hooray! Mr. Rochester's at about 25 lbs and we both are happy with the progress we've made although we still need to tone up some more and just continue trying to be healthy.
