...Mojo numba 5!

Is up on the blog...check it out! =)


...I got to play with Fancy Pants' Designs yummy felt and Holly Jolly collection and I fell in love with this page..just an average Christmas at home in the picture, the challenge is to scrap using the 5 senses and how it relates to the holidays for you, and to use paint and stamp with something from around your home....go play! You have til the end of December to enter this guy! =) Also, check out the Fancy Pants Gallery, as it's always bursting full of yummy stuff at the beginning of the new month! Lotsa inspo there, such awesome girls! Annnnd...Pink Sugar Pop is selling out all of it's goodies (no international orders, though, for my Canadian buddies...) so check that out while it lasts! They won't be replenished, but there may be exciting news about the company coming soon..stay tuned!

And yesterday at work, I was so bored that I finally tried my hand at some photo-editing and tutorials and stuff...I really know nothing bout Photoshop, but love the vintage and acid wash colors these days....so here's the original:
And some of my color-wash tests:



And I learned how to do this, too:


Nothin special for you pros out there, I know..he he...but I was having fun! I was totally inspired by Pink Ink Studios' presets, cuz they rock! Annnd.....that about sums me up, today! I made 30 christmas cards in a few hours last night assembly-line style and had a really funny pic of my table all full of paint-splattered cards, but left it at home..he he...I kidn of just realized how much stuff I have to do/make before Christmas! eeek! And wedding pictures should be on their way to my home (thanks Mandy!!) so I'll try to get em up as soon as possible!! yay!! happy day!

I love the color scheme you went with for the fifth challenge. Very cool! Thanks for sharing about the pink sugar pop sale. I've been meaning to buy from them for a long time now so that gave me the extra push. I got olive the owl and the heart with the wings. I would have purchased more but they don't have the skull or dinosaur left. :( Congrats on playing with photoshop and making pretty cards.
