Okay okay maybe not. Alex and I are studying 'hooks' in composition, and I thought that title might make a good hook. If it made you come over from your Reader because you want to help me know where I am, it worked!!
I'm still working on the kids' digi scrapbooks and scanned one of my favorite pictures of Niki. She reminded me of a little Precious Moments figurine when she was about that age...so cute! So because I love this picture so much, I set out on a hunt for just the right background/elements. Nothing I saw suited me, both free and for sale. And because once I set my mind to something I exhaust all avenues before giving up, I decided to make my own!
Between teaching Alex, his independent worktime and while he ate lunch (two fried balogna sandwiches), I came up with this. I played around with the leaves until I got enough variation. Digi scrapping is quickly becoming my newest addiction, but I figure because I'm actually accomplishing something I needed (scanning all the old photos) it's okay. So long as I done get Alex teached up, shove laundry over to the wall and do the scissorwalk through the house to clear a path, no harm done.
I listed my Sheriff page last night (finally) on Digiscrap Depot and am fixing to list this one as well....so because I haven't done the scissorwalk yet, I'd best post the link and log off, and get a life!
