FF and a bit of chatter

Happy Friday to yall! Hope you've had a great week! I've been catching up on work these past days because I was going to bed early, needed some sleep!

Oh, you know what happened to me the other day? I was RAK'd by Corina Nielsen! I went to DST (first thing in the morning, lol!) and saw a new private message and there it was, a wonderful gift. From my favorite designer! Man, she really really made my day with that! She's such a sweetheart, some time ago I left a comment on her blog and she responded to me by email. Now, how many people do that, huh? And also, I did some shopping over at FPD, they had this gorgeous collab kit free with purchase and screwed up at check out. And she was so nice to send me the links for the kit through email asap despite her family situation (she was attending a family funeral). How sweet is that!?

Talking of favorite designers - have you noticed that Christina Renee has a new store up? Her VERY OWN store? No? Then go HERE to check it out, it looks great! I wanted to have a peek in the gallery but it's not working yet:-( I'm such a sucker for her stuff....Unfortunately I haven't had a chance to use much yet because I'm busy with my two CT's but I keep buying...who knows...:-) (yes, I'd LOVE to be on her CT!!!)

I've got some new LO's, I'm in a row now, making one a day. You may laugh and say, yeah, I'm making at least one a day too, but for me it's quite an achievement because I'm a VERY slow scrapper. Sometimes I already have an idea what, how, where and then it goes faster but usually it takes me about 4+ hours to make a layout. And even if IDO have it organized in my head already, I usually get stuck on some detail. Like fonts. I have the LO done but I'm looking for the right font for 2 freaking hours, can you believe that?! Anyway, yesterday I broke my record and made TWO layouts! Actually, I broke two records because the second one took me about 2.5 hours which has been the shortest time so far. And that was under certain pressure because I remembered at 8 pm that it was my mother-in-law birthday today, lol! Well, she is very traditional and she likes plain photos but I though it'd be nice to make it anyway:

And this is the other one, I really like how it turned out:


Credits and journaling here.

The last thing, as always, is a freebie. I promised you something that is really IN now so here you are:

It's a bunch of splotches in different colors and shapes. There are 12 and each of them is in glitter and no-glitter version so 24 in total. You can download them here. SORRY, THE LINK IS EXPIRED. If you like them. Enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great Friday!

Sorry for mistakes in my previous comment.. There should be "sweet" and "chat"

Liz said...

These are wonderful! I have been seeing layouts with glitter and splotches and they have been so stylish, but i haven't figured out how to get the look right. thank you for making and sharing this -- i have a finger painting picture these would go great with.

p.s. i am also very slow, and 4 hours is pretty normal for me. I just dont know how people can pop them out in an hour, or even during a crop, before it is over!

i love your site and have a great time reading your postings.
