Well it's been over thirty days since my last post, a long thirty days I might add. Seems like after my desktop decided to play dead my printer wanted to get in on the game as well. My desktop had been revived but my printer is still printing a lovely shade of green, it was like an eternal Saint Patrick's day! All mechanical difficulties aside I have had some flair ups with an ongoing medical problem as well. I wish fixing those were as simple as buying a new laptop and replacing a printer. Oh well, I guess all things have a shelf life, computers, printers and people. The trick is to make the most of it, enjoyed it all and scrap the memories for the next generation to remember. Now that everything seems to be reasonably back in working order again I decided I need to just relax and scrap. I love the way scraping brings an inner peace and gets those mental juices flowing again. This layout is of a photo of my grand kids (Angelica, Alyssa and Jacob) that I don't get to see very ofter as they live out of state. I love fall colors and plaids. I embossed my title on plain card stock and used the argyle pattern to give is a little punch. By the time I was done making my layout in Design Studio I think I had ended up using 5 or 6 cartridges, but I was pleased with the way it turned out. It's good to be back.
