Showing Signs of Life

Ok, I PROMISE I’m still alive (seriously this time). It’s been a little exhausting these last… well, this whole year quite frankly.

There are a lot of exciting things going on at work. First, we merged with this great company Splash Media in Addison. The merger took all of us by surprise when our boss announced it, but with a little faith and a lot of hard work, it all came to fruition on July 1st.

In the meantime, it’s business as usual. And although we’ve only had a couple new projects come in recently, we’ve been up to our foreheads in existing work. With the merger and the new product launch, we’re all a little freaked out at the approaching tidal wave, but we’re hanging in there.

As a result, I’ve been coming home from work these last few weeks and just vegetating. I haven’t even looked at my craft desk in a while, nor have I even taken any photos, but I do have a few layouts that I finished last month that deserve some attention so I’ll be posting those gradually over the next few days.

Friends for the Long Haul

I made this image a long long time ago while scrapping with my scrap group and it’s been sitting on my desk since then. I didn’t want to throw it away but I couldn’t figure out what to do with it until now. My darling friend Brenda let me try out a piece of her heavy weight card stock from Gina K as well as her Copic SPICA markers. If you’re not familiar with SPICAs, they’re absolutely fantastic if you want to add just a touch of sheer glitter to your colored image.

Paper: Stampin’ Up Garden Green card stock, The Paper Studio patterned paper, White card stock (I think this from Gina K)
Embellishments: Making Memories Vintage Finding ticket, Adhesive pearls, SPICA pens, assorted colored pencils
Stamps: Stampin Up Loads of Love and accessories
Ink: Tim Holtz Archival Black ink
Tools: Gamsol
