What to Do on a Snowy Day

OK, so DO NOT ~ I repeat DO NOT get used to this. It is the first snowy day in a long time, and a few of the creative juices are flowing. Finding the "lost" photos was the push I need. I have a book to complete by April - in order to make it for my boy upon his college graduation. You designers have been putting out some pretty amazing stuff - and now I am starting to kick it into over drive! ROTFLMSBO!!!!
My first layout is from Vicki's My Blue Valentine. I just love this kit... LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!!!! You can get it here - but I am telling you that you bess say thank you, or I will find you for a good old fashioned hog tying with duct tape - (that is how we do things in Montana!). Yep, I did 2 layouts from this one... and there may be more yet on the horizon. I was not kidding when I said I LOVE it!!!! Man, my baby boy sure was a cutie patooty!!!

The next layout is from a gift from Melanie over at Creekside Cottage Designs. This lady is quite talented. It is her Bring Me a Dream kit, and it can be used so many ways. Few things are a precious as a baby sleeping!!! (or as quiet - man, I just crack myself up some days!!!!) You can pick her kit up here. The same thing applies ~ if you pick it up, remember your manners and say Thank You! Or I will send Miss Vicki from Texas to give you a full on Texas Butt Whooping - and I think that might just be 100 times worse than duct tape... I think you get my point. These designers work very hard, and share with us out of the kindness of their hearts. A simple thank you can go a very long way.

I am off to do a little more playing in Photoshop. Have a great rest of the day, and I promise to do the same!

You are on a roll gf!!!! Keep on going while you have the mojo....LOL I lost mine at the moment, hopefully it will come back soon! I just can't back in the mood!!!!
Your layouts are wonderful!!!!

Thanks for explaining to me about the special scanner for negatives...who what of thought! LOL
I am far from done asking you ready for the next one....HAHAHAHA What does shooting from the RAW mean???
I understand it's a bigger photo, but I am not sure what the difference is, I am thinking you can't use RAW with a digital camera either....probably wrong, but I figure I would ask the PRO!

Later Dude! I gotta blog hop for now....

I LOVE what you have done with "Blue Valentine"! This is just what I had in mind when I created it, wonderful LO's, what a terrific job you have done! See, snowy days are good for something! Looks like Mr. MoJo is visiting Montana for a winter break.
Oh and BTW, thanks for the "manners" scare! ROTFLPIMP!!!
Big, Warm Texas hug,
