Saw this, created that

Saw this on the internet today

It's not available to ship to Canada so I created this.

I added some beiges to fit the color scheme of my house better. It's 18" x 18" and I want to include it as part of a photo wall.

What do you think?  Any suggestions?

The end... and the beginning

So here it is - Dec. 31st - the end of 2011.  I'm not thinking about 2011, though, and all the things that happened (or didn't!)  Instead, my mind is buzzing with all the things I'd like to do in 2012.  The future.  I'm having trouble prioritizing my goals.  I think I'll just make a list.  A list of some of the things I want to do and why I want to do them.

1. Take photos - learn new techniques. For the creative joy of it. 
2. Make digital scrapbook pages. Also for the creative joy of it. And to show my family how much I love them.

3. Travel. Because the world is an amazing place. And it`s another opportunity for goals 1 and 2.
4. Focus on real food.  Healthy food.  Whole food.  Cook it, eat it, photograph it.
5. Keep on walking.  Because I want to stay healthy.  And to enjoy my new-found love of audiobooks.
6. Read.  In addition to the audiobooks. Fiction and non.
7. Take a philosophy course. Because I love to philosophize....
8. Pray. Learn to know God better.

Here's why I haven't been posting.....

I've been busy working on pics from our trip to Italy.  Here's one:  Riomaggiore Sunset watercolor

Once I get through them, I'll be needing to create some templates - back then!

Mask series - Template #3

We had a great time scrapbooking at the cabin.  We even managed to get a couple of hours in the sunshine on Friday and a beautiful sunset on Saturday.  Can't wait to go again!

Here's what I did with the 1st template in this series:
And here is the next one:

Mask series - Template #2

Well, I am off this afternoon for a scrapbooking weekend to our cabin.  This has become an annual tradition (anything done more than twice counts as a tradition, right?!)  I actually can't remember how many years we've been doing this.  This year there will be four of us.

Unfortunately, the forecast doesn't look good, but then I guess we will get more scrapbooking done, and perhaps less whale-watching, seal pup observing, and oyster catcher photographing.....

Just another quick sample of what it looks like with photos inserted.  The spatter can be filled with paper, or color, or whatever you like, and of course, you'll likely want a background other than white.

Here's the DOWNLOAD.
