My First Attempts of ATC Cards

We had a challenge on where we created Artist Trading Cards. I've never done this. It's kind of "free-style" art. But I'm falling in love with this. Now I'll have to keep making them.... ah, another reason to attach myself to the computer.

Visual DNA

My visual DNA.
It really "pegged" me and how I feel right now....
Crazy, goofy and wow.

However, I promise my bedroom isn't THAT bad...getting there though.
There's just so much other stuff to do, that housework gets put aside.

Normally, I don't scrap photos like this. But Ali Edwards posted a photo of her son, similar to this, and I was inspired by how she planned to use her photo. I love how this layout turned out. It really shows off Collin's smile.

You give me hope

I love this photo of Collin. I got the idea for the layout from Ali Edwards and Jessica Sprague.
I love how the corner rounder brush of Jessica made the photo a funky, cool shape.

He's here!

The love of my life....
Begging like a puppy to use my camera...
Covered in easter egg dye and chocolate milk...
Love him bunches and bunches.

Collin is here

After an "adventure" in the St. Louis airport...., Collin arrived in Carthage on Saturday.
He's been running 90 to nothing, only crashing to a stop at night...and barely then.

I'll post a few pics of his visit within the next day or so...

We've worked out a deal: I can take pics of him, and he gets to use my camera.
I'll also post a few "as seen from Collin's view" pics soon.

Anyway. I'll be a bad blogger this week, just because I'm hanging out with the rug rat....and this weekend, when I am going to STL myself for an adventure, they made me promise not to take my laptop....


Bad Blogger

I've been neglecting my blog....
I found this today, and took the test...
In school I was an "ENFJ" Which meant Extroverted, Intuitive, Feeling and Judging (the judging meant that I was kind of organized)....

I wonder what the change means

Your Personality is Somewhat Rare (ISFP)

Your personality type is caring, peaceful, artistic, and calm.

Only about 7% of all people have your personality, including 8% of all women and 6% of all men
You are Introverted, Sensing, Feeling, and Perceiving.
