Tuesday is my scrapping day this summer. I did 2 1/2 layouts today. Hey, I still have other things to do.
Here are some sneak peaks at what I did. I am finishing up 2003 with the last of the Christmas photos.

Blog Hop

Because I needed another website to look at daily, I joined The Scrappers Sanctuary. It is full of a diverse group of artists, scrappers, photographers, card makers, mixed media artists and more. Want to learn more? They are hosting a blog hop, complete with prizes.

Canvas Fun

Dancing with you feet is one thing, dancing with your heart another. 
I have started doing mixed media in journals and on canvas. It is just what the name implies, a mix of paint, paper, embellishments, and whatever else you feel like adding. My friend Sandi posted a challenge at The Scrappers Sanctuary last month to create a piece of art using an image she posted. I originally made this canvas in sepia, with purples and browns. I love the quote, but something about the canvas was just off. 
I decided to redo the whole thing this weekend. I converted the image to B&W, found some basic grey paper I liked, inked some clear hearts and put it all together. I am much happier with this version. 
I will hang above my work surface in my studio.

Another week has come and gone. It is the first week on my summer time. However, I am working. Silly me. I am teaching a half day class for the Kindergarteners who start in August. It gives the kids a chance to learn about our school, learn some of the expectations, and gives us a glimpse into the incoming students.

So my summer time will start on June 24th at 12:00!!!

At Goal

I am not saying this in an After photos. This is me at my weight loss goal. After implies that I am done. That is far from true. Now I need to learn to maintain this new weight. So the next goal is to look like this in September.
