Where the time goes?

Life's been really hectic for me in last couple of months and between work, trying to finish book I started to read (Blink by Malcolm Gladwell), organizing trips for my hiking group, and training for two big climbs that are aproaching really fast (Mt. Adams and Mt. Baker), I hardly had time to scrap or make any new cards so when today came and offered few extra hours I took advantage of it.

This is a card I made for a birthday swap at scrapbook forum. The weather was really nice today with plenty of sunshine and with this great spring weather I opted for some happy brighter colors.

Easter Card #1

My first Easter card this year and also first time using the cute Magnolia stamp I got a while back and didn’t have a chance to play with yet. I tried for more traditional colors but in the end the brown/pink combination worked best for this design.

Happy Birthday

I can't believe it's been almost a month since I had a chance to make a card. Where the time flies? Between hiking, learning to be a better photographer, and writing articles for a travel web site back at home, the time seems to fly by way too fast.

Creativity started to pinch me though and my stack of paper screamed at me every time I walked by. I had to sit down and make at least one card or I'd surely get crazy.

Happy Valentine's Day

Here is a Valentine's card a made for Chad this year. I tried to keep it somewhat simple and the colors kind of masculine. I played with the idea of keeping the background solid black but then I found a piece of the polka dot paper and decided it was a better choice.

Fall Tilda

While cleaning my drawers I found this two pieces of chipboard and they seemed to work together so well. The green one was already painted from few month back when I though of using it as a part of a layout but it never made it into the completed project. I purposedly left smears on the brown one to achieve more country farm feel.

Best Wishes

I really felt like playing with circles today, perhaps because I didn't really used them for a while. I also used flowers, and I mean quite a lot of flowers which is so much not like me, but they simply matched the image so I couldn't resist.

Happy Anniversary

Today is our anniversary. I can't believe we've been married for 6 years already. The time just flew by. The sun is shining just like it was on our wedding day which is quite rare here in Washington state and very much enjoyed.

We decided that instead of going out for dinner we will cook dinner together at home today. It'll be fun since Chad does not really cook and always looks so cute in the kitchen when he occasionally tries to prepare something.
