First, a big thank you to all of the congrats I received on being one of the top12 holiday card designs chosen in Becky's 2013 Holiday Card Design Contest. I love, love, love creating things that make others happy! If you haven't downloaded this year's cards yet, you can do so here.
I'm moving right along in trying to catch up on my weekly layouts for 2013! Here's what I have for you this week:
My Catch-UP Layout: Week 29
The digital version of Project Life Template Design A was used for this layout (like always!) Other products on this page include my Weekly Word Art Titles, the Seafoam, Midnight and Clementine Core Editions of Project life, a fun piece of flair from Karla Dudley's "Anywhere" collection and background papers from my "Background Basics" collection.
Week 29 marked our first full week back in the States. We had to travel to North Carolina for Chris to do some out-processing from the Marine Corps. It was fun to go back and visit our old neighborhood. We lived there from 1997-2000 and my how have things changed! The first house we ever bought seemed so small and there were apartment buildings now standing in the fields where the kids used to play! And speaking of things changing, it's always interesting to return from being overseas for a while to see what new "inventions" are now mainstream in the U.S. I got the biggest kick out of the self-serve fountain-drink machines at some of the fast-food restaurants. And those new ketchup packets-dip or squeeze-those rock! And of course there was the Spanx store in Tysons Corner! I just love America!
My Current Week Layout: Week 45
The digital version of Project Life Template Design A was used for this layout (sticking to one or two templates makes this project so much easier!). Other products on this page include my Weekly Word Art Titles, the Seafoam, Midnight and Clementine Core Editions of Project life. Several of the digital files were manipulated to fit my needs. The Magic Wand tool and "edit > fill" option from the menu bar are my go-to features when I want to change the colors of png files in Photoshop!
The story of the week on this page wasn't necessarily the photos, but the journaling on the 4x6 journal card (left side of spread). I went for a job interview this week. A few weeks ago a recruiter contacted me through LinkedIn and set up an interview for a graphic design position at Lazy Days RV Sales and Campground. The interview went well and they offered me a job by the end of the day. That same day, I had another job offer from another company I interviewed with a few months back. Decisions, decisions. This topic is worthy of a post on it's own. I'll let you know what my decision was in a post later this week!
My Project Life pages are also being linked up at TheMomCreative. Jessica Turner, owner, has graciously provided a place for Project Life enthusiasts to link and share their pages. Check out her blog for some great inspiration!
Have a great week!
