Super cute page. Love the little flags. I love stamps that help me journal by hand. Thanks for the inspiration!.

Jill, thanks for the quick response. I've used clipping masks a couple of times but am not really comfortably familiar with them. Do you have any recommendations for learning digital scrapbooking? I have PSE 8 (tried Photoshop CS4 and absolutely hated it!). Thanks again.

Jill. I love this template. Can you tell me where it's from? Assuming it's a digital template? I really like that style and want to get into digital scrapping using templates like that. Thanks! Kathryn

Russell and I went to a Dahlia Farm on Saturday and spent some time taking photos. We happened to run into a woman who was also photographing the flowers. She had a Nikon and I asked her a question about her lens and she showed us her "Fish Eye" lens,... Continue reading

What everyday things define you? My must-have's include lipstick (even if I don't wear any other makeup), medication and a pop (either Diet Coke or Diet Dr. Pepper). I'm also one of those people who is rarely without a book...you never know when you're going to have a few minutes... Continue reading

I love photography and have for years. My first camera was a Kodak Instamatic that I got for my birthday when I was about 13. Thankfully, time has improved all things electronic including cameras. Up until last fall, when I enrolled in the Integrated Media program at Mt Hood Community... Continue reading

Cathy, your posts on your exercise and weight loss always inspire (and sometimes depress me). I did boot camp five days a week last fall and just killed my back and knees - ended up in physical therapy. Discovered water aerobics this spring, which I love but the summer schedule is all weird so it's not offered very often (can't wait for the fall schedule). In the meantime, I'm walking again and yesterday, after reading your post, I ran (maybe a slow job would be a better description) several times during my walk. I do always feel good after my walks and enjoy them more when I'm outside rather than on the treadmill. I need to set my goal for healthy rather than a certain weight, event, etc. Keep sharing your journey...it's inspiring and I so appreciate your honesty. So many of us struggle with exercise and weight loss - in sharing your journey (both the ups and downs), you are inspiring and encouraging us to make changes. Thanks!! Kathryn

Jill. Love your blog and today's post about Project 365 is awesome. I haven't yet done any digital scrapping although I am signed up to take Renee Pearson's "Just the Basics" class starting next week. What software program do you use and what digital template are you using? Thanks so much.

Jill: I love your quote. I do a "quote of the day" on my blog and will have to "quote-lift" this one. Have been wondering how your new job is going? You've had some major life changes in the last year...we went through some similar life changes a couple years ago, so I know how it can rock your world (in good and bad ways)! Happy Friday. Kathryn

Red and black are my signature colors. Love using kraft cardstock as my base color. Can't wait to get my hands on your new trimmer. Looks awesome! Thanks for such great products and customer service.
