Way too much fun...

Sorry my blog is so outdated -- thanks to anyone still checking in! I am still feeling like garbage, but I'm officially at the end of the first trimester so I have hopes for brighter days ahead. I have been able to do a couple of really fun projects over the past few weeks that I wanted to share. I just did this one today -- my baby sister turned 18, and I needed a cool card that would match her fun and funky personality. I downloaded this great "Comic Junkie" digi-kit by Jana Crowley (the Queen of Quirk) at www.oscraps.com (that's where I got the background, cityscape, and big letter A) and the font (letteromatic) from www.1001freefonts.com. Then I found a great tutorial on turning a regular photo into comic book art at www.photoshoproadmap.com -- I can't wait to explore this site some more!



Here's what the original pic looked like:



This next project is a book I made for my brother-in-law and his fiance for their wedding -- they had one at each table. He wanted to tell the story of how they met and fell in love, but they didn't have pictures for a lot of the events. He loved the invite I made for my mom's birthday and asked if I could make them a book in that style. But of course! The second half (about the proposal) they had lots of pics for and I was out of time, so it's pretty straight forward, but the whole thing was really fun to make. Even more importantly, my BIL and new SIL said it was exactly what they wanted, and everyone in the family wanted to take one home! Ah, success....

So glad that you're back! I was worried about you! I am now 5 weeks out of my first trimester, and I am still feeling horrid! I even had to get on some medicine just to get out of bed in the morning! My son was nothing like this-so I am just praying for a girl! I am hoping you are feeling better soon! Your new projects are great-that book is just too cute! Take care!
