Hey there! Wow, two in a row today:) I was gonna post today anyway (no kidding!) but after Brooke's comment I realized you might feel lost here, hehe. Well, I've been wanting to redesign this since the beginning, that's almost a year (changed blogs) but have been putting it off. The previous I did in a rush...anyway, time for change. It looks more cheerful here, don't you think? I'm still gonna play a bit with the colors and stuff but that's not going to be today. Have to finish the freebie for you for tomorrow!:) Well, I only have the preview left but I've just spent 2 hours making a bonus paper because it was just not coming the way I wanted...And what else have I been up to? Not much, really. I have about hour or hour and a half during the day when No.2 (my DS) sleeps and the rest has to be done at night. Still not in shape though and my DH is sick now too, ufff! Oh and I finished two layouts - one is Eneko's monthly journal - not too happy with it but the mojo was just not coming, lol:

And this one I finished last night for this week's Digi Dare. And that one I really like:

Apart from that I've been saving my hubby's butt, hehe, not only his but his colleagues too!:) He works on a project for a government organization, they are rebuilding their internet portal. And on Friday he came with a question if I could take a look at the logo they gave him for one of the pages. The problem was they got a JPEG file from the government dept. how it should look like and it was tall and they needed landscape. No rush, hubby said but I was like ok, no problem, extracted what was needed and made a brand new banner over the weekend. And you know what? They loved it! lol They published it straight away because the government called on Monday morning to go live immediately. If I didn't do it they wouldn't have had anything - the company that is responsible for creating the banner didn't do ANYTHING! I was asked to do another one in different color. And the same day Iñaki came home with a question if I could make another banner for another page because the current one sucked...I did it the same evening and again it was approved and will be published next week! And today I got 4 more 'homeworks'. One of them is to design the header banner for their main page! lol. Getting quite popular over there, see if they start to pay me, hehe...

Okay, bed time for me already, I'll see you tomorrow and I'll have your weekly treat for you!

Have a great rest of the day/night!

PS Again - thank you SO much for your comments. It's one of the things I love about designing - your appreciation!

Oh my gosh, look how big your little guy is getting! Love the photos and the one of him sitting on the floor looking up at you with a pouty face, that is priceless! :)

I love the emotion of the 2nd layout, it is beautiful. Is that your dog, I sure miss ours.

Hey they should be paying you! Especially after you saved their rears!!! :)

Have a great weekend!

The layout is fantastic and has a lovely grungy feeling that looks terrific in kids layouts. :) It's kinda the mess they do around whenever you turn your head five seconds away from them. LOL And the numbers with the ruler is very original. :)
The second layout looks very nice in black and white with that colour scheme.:)

Thanks so much for sharing them with us and best wishes. :O)
