I am feeling quite productive today! I managed to get both my male and female reindeer up in the Deco-Pages store. Now I just have a set elves and my sleigh to get finished and up.

I have finally gotten my hand-drawn Santas and elves in the Deco-Pages store. This has been a tough month, lots to do and I haven't felt very well. Even though we're in Hawaii, it is getting down into the 60's and with no heat in the am, I'm feeling the weather change. Plus I lifted the stupid turkey out of the oven and re-injured my diaphragm, so that's been hurting starting in the early afternoon. Any way I have a ton of projects on the burner and I'm glad to have finished two of them. I have reindeer and a sleigh I'm about done with, plus I still am working on the Sea Fishing Kit, it's about done, YES!

This is the banner I made for the Deco-Pages Banner Contest I'm trying to get it in as a linked footer. I can't seem to modify the HTML to get it to link, but I got my title to link. Oh, well, better that than nothing.

I can't believe it's been ten days since I last posted. We've been busy with school and I've been trying to get some designing done. I have been working on getting the fishing kit ready for the store and finishing the layouts for the guys winning the Hooters Fishing Tourney. One of the things I have also been working on are hand drawings for layouts - To the left is a sample.

This layout I did for Marcee's Holiday Challenge. I chose to do the game theme as the boys really enjoy playing Connect Four together (they actually love to play any game) and their reactions are great. When Cyril got four in a row Omega was so shocked. He couldn't believe it.Click here for the credits for Connect Four.
This layout I did for the Deco-Pages Newsletter Challenge. This pot is the only piece left from my college ceramics class. Even though it is cracked and chipped I still hang onto it. It brings back a lot of memories. Now that I have scrapped it, if something happens to it I won't feel quite so sad.Click here for the credits for My Pot.
This alyout I did for the CAC Challenge that Lorene Hill puts on. This time we were supposed to use three pictures of ourselves and a piece of ephemera. It was also suposed to be introspective and in an art journal style. I had a lot of fun creating this layout. Someday I will be able to get back onto pastel painting and other fine arts. Right now I am enjoying creating digi kits, which are definitely not messy and easy to pick up and put away.Click here for the credits for Face It!
This layout is my third for the November Color Challenge. Dana's kit for the Color Challenge is absolutely fabulous! This was an interesting rainbow as it showed up just as the sun was setting, so the clouds were turning orange and the rainbow was shing bright among them.Click here for the credits for Rainbow Sunset.

This photo is composed of three photos that I took from our garage roof. It was a bit of a pain to take them from there, but I was able to get clear shots. I used the Novemer 2007 Color Challenge kit created by Dana Conditt.

This layout is also done with Dana Conditt's November 2007 Color Challenge Kit at Omega was so cute when he went to our church's Halloween Alternative as a penguin from the ark. Church members had put up big tents and the games were held under them. It was a good thing the tents were up as it rained quite heavily all evening.
This I did for Marcee's Material Girl Challenge. She pm'd the gold elements and then I had to use at least three of them in a layout. Orchids are some of the prettiest flowers around. It is alway a pleasure when we get blooms.

I haven't done a two pager for a while so this was fun. It is after the same pattern as the other 'ABC Action' layouts I have done for this challenge.

We got over 5 inches of rain over the weekend. It was pretty wet and everything that can absorb water from the air feels damp. Saturaday was National Scrapbooking Day and I managed to get a freebie done yesterday for it. You can pick it up at Deco-Pages in the NSD thread.Plus some of us designers are having a sale. Find out about it in this thread. The layout of Myra is done with the QP I created from the kit and the QP is included in the download.
