Blog Spotlight

I thought I'd take a second to point my followers to my friend LeeAnne's blog Art.Faith.Love.

Just some quick history, LeeAnne and I have known each other since grade school. Her mom was our Girl Scout troop leader! (And yes, we watched Troop Beverly Hills!) We lost touch throughout high school after LeeAnne's family moved out of state. A few years ago I received a Christmas card from her and was pretty ecstactic. I probably regaled my husband with the saga of Laura & LeeAnne at Girl Scout camp about a million times. (Totally not fascinating at all.) Thanks to the wonders of technology and social networking, we are back in touch. I follow her blog and just adore the person she is today. An intelligent & creative wife, daughter, and friend. LeeAnne, next time I am in your area, the coffee is on me. (Seriously, is it not SO cool to find old friends and see the people they are today? I just love it.)

Go check out her blog, Art.Faith.Love and I just know you'll like what you find!

LeeAnne & Laura (I'm terrible with dates, I'd guess 5th grade here.)

Mean Girl & Sketchy Thursdays

I did this layout for this weeks Sketchy Thursdays sketch. I love the sketches that Diana & Heidi post, so much fun to work with. This weeks sketch was great and for once I actually did a pretty literal interpretation! Yay me! I'm pretty notorious for taking a sketch and warping it to fit my needs. Sometimes so much that you can't relate the two. Oops.

Sketchy Thursdays Challenge Sketch 4/8/10

"Mean Girl"

"2010: Our baby girl, Lizzy. Contemplating life, love, and probably (most likely) a nap. Our (sic) clawing another cat's face. She's nice like that."

Don't you hate when you finish the page and find a misspelling in your journaling? Argh.

Scrapfreak Stuff

Holy crap, not only did I actually scrap - I'm blogging too! It is a miracle. Or something.

First up, for the March 2010 Sketch Inspiration at Scrapfreak:

Next, also for Scrapfreak, the April 2010 Sketch Inspiration:

And a fun Valentine's card I made for my darling husband this year. I lifted the design from someone on the internet...if it is you, thanks!

Thanks for looking! Hey, maybe I'll actually post again this month...er...year?

P.S. - we have made Montrose part of our family...he's just beside himself with happiness! Or so it seems. He sleeps a lot, which is the sign of a very content kitty.
