LOAD212 complete!

today was the last day of LOAD212 with lain. i did 29 layouts for this class in february. 29 straggler stories told. i was able to close out my may, june, july and august 2011 list of stories. it was a lot of fun and a great community to participate in. she's doing it again in may so watch for that.

if you'd like a closer view, you can view the flickr set here. note i used a lot of templates and older kits that i had downloaded, but had never been able to play with. i also scrapped a lot of not so great photos because i wanted to save the memories regardless. this was a fabulous stress free way to create. i really enjoyed it and hope to participate again in may!

last minute printable valentines

these aren't free - but you could definitely whip one of these cards up. find a digital kit, font or clip art of eye glasses - add the sentiment and some googly eyes and you'll be good to go. or just buy these and print!

second saturday for february

i committed to 12 photos on the second saturday of each month in 2012. i can't do the 12th - most months i sit at my desk all day that day. so today was second saturday and my boys are away for the weekend skiing. my second second saturday without them! next month i'm hoping they are around - easier to find things to photograph.

left to right from the top:
oh my morning hair! look at all that grey growing out!
keurig - yum!
slight dusting of snow this morning
mail - piles of mail
my desk - i spent  a great deal of time here today
trying on clothes at lands end/sears
the fuzzies at target - cute
starbuck's - a saturday treat - the new blonde coffee is yum!
grocery shopping - excited about the pretzel chips
listened to the newest episode of the digi show
sneakers for my daily walk

and that's my second saturday!

teacher valentine card

i whipped up this quick card today for my son's teachers. used a digi kit called cup of joy from jenn barrette for the cup. then added a punched heart from cosmo cricket scraps to the front.

on the back i made a simple pocket and added the sentiment. 
i plan to put starbuck's gift cards in the pocket!

 just thought i'd share if you are looking for something cute and easy to make!
