So Sweet - Freebie!

I made this for the photo-swap layout, and had no kit to use it with, so here you go! Comes with and without shadows. Enjoy!

And another sale (at Pixel Canvas)!

And my Burnished Papers are up--the site had some gallery problems, so the previews didn't work:

And here's a layout I made today with those, for a photo swap at Pixel Canvas (those are always such fun, you should join in!):

A photo exchange for Elina at Pixel Canvas. Everything mine: Paper from Burnished Papers, frame and ivy/ribbons from Faery Lights (now only available at Gotta Pixel), butterfly & bow from Softer Side, and heart from Pinktastic (Gotta Pixel Club Exclusive kit, Pinktastic). Little flower charm to the right of the frame from Adorned 1. Fonts: Futura Bold & Book, and Jellyka St. Andrew.

Sale & New Stuff!

Gotta Pixel is having a 40% sale off tomorrow (it actually starts at 12am EST):

And in honor of this, I'll have a new kit up, Yay School!:

We go back to school next Thursday--I'm quite sure I'm far more excited about it than Allen! *lol*

Freebie Template!

Remember this layout?

Well, I made a template out of it, and you used to be able to snag it over at Pixel Canvas (but I'm putting it up here at this point):

Delicacies Layouts

I've been having fun with my Delicacies kit just out at Pixel Canvas:

Heather Taylor, The Sentinel

Everything from my Delicacies kit -- albeit recolored. Cuz I'm sneaky like that. Font: Mecheria and Auburn. Journaling reads:

the water drifts
past perhaps
the seal
has let a fish
slide by
and if not
the heron stands
for hours

And check out these GORGEOUS layouts that my CT and the wondrous Tracy Little have created:

Soooooo busy! Lots of New Stuff!

Yikes, I didn't realize it had been so long since the last update--my apologies! A dental appointment gone slightly bad, school is getting ready to start, DH wants to go traveling next week... I feel like I'm losing my pedals (as they say in French ;)!

So, last night's layout, Sleeping Giggles:

Heather Taylor, Sleeping Giggles

Pretending to sleep in long grass... =)

For the Friday Lift (Aug. 7) @ Pixel Canvas, from a beautiful layout by gonewiththewind (Cheryl), Live For Today.

Credits: Everything from Pixel Canvas. Background paper, tag, stem, and leaves by ViVa Artistry (Wanyama Kit). Flower from Vintage Luau, also by ViVa. Photomask (a bit reworked) by Vinnie Pearce, staples from I Live For, and her little bright green heart from The Great Hunt Kit. Rest is mine: butterfly from Softer Side, frame made from a paper in the Summer Blues Kit, diamond heart from Briefly Elegant, and stitching from Stitched 2.

And lots of new products--did you know I had a line of $1.00-$1.50 templates at Gotta Pixel?:

Thoughts of Sky and Water (and a little bit of sand, too)

A photobook! At Shutterfly! At the bottom of this page cuz I finally figured it out after hi-jacking somebody else's blog on which I happen to be a contributor (sorreeee Candice!)... sheesh!

approaching twilight
and the swells in the
distance seem so gentle
until they rampage against
the dark volcanic walls
and shatter
filling the sky with
a salty grasping
that wind-mists
into small mirrors
of evening green

my heart
burns with beauty
