Eye Candy to Share

Yep, not the sugary stuff, but pages ... and pages! Having been away for New Year's and then jumping right back into work, I guess I must have - deep down - been suffering from scrapping withdrawals ... well, that's what I'm telling myself to justify the countless hours I spent attached to my laptop over the weekend! ROFL With the grand opening of Design House Digital on January 1, I'll admit I went shop-happy and now have SOOOOO many goodies to play with - everything here today is from DHD ... yep, everything! Oh, and to make things "worse" (but in a GOOD way, of course), there are MORE NEW RELEASES today on the site - that's on top of the 70+ kits that were released last Thursday. Can we say digi heaven?!

In looking at these pages, I'm surprised at how, stylistically, these are all different ... oh well, I had fun, and that's the whole point of this art form - right? Doesn't matter what it looks like, so long as I captures the moment or a memory that I want it to. Oh, and for those that have been asking, yes, there are some pictures from San Antonio in here, too.

This first layout is Week 1 in a Project-365 series - only 51 more to go! LOL Some people take photos every day and then create weekly or monthly pages. I'm going more for the highlights of the week - and, obviously, a start in San Antonio fit the bill. Really, what else could compare for the rest of the week - oh, my commute ... what we had for dinner ... ? Nah.

And for something very much different - a black background with shades of grey, popped with some more pictures from San Antonio. The Riverwalk was a great area to just hang out. Even as early as 10:00 a.m., the restaurants were opening up and encouraging people to stop and stay a while.

Okay, so I mentioned earlier about the additional new releases at DHD today? Here's something from Audrey Neal's new Winterberry line.

And now, back to your regular programming ...

The layouts are wonderful! I thought I would do some scrtapbooking, I found that it wasn't for me. I have it all put away and plan to get it out and give it another whirl. I had little hands helping me when I first attempted it and I think when I have the chance while alone, I will enjoy it.

Katherine, I love your pages! The grey background against those colorful photos looks amazing too.
