So, right now, my biggest wish is that I had someone to help me sort and pack! We haven't moved in 17 years, so this is turning out to be a huge job. For those of you who don't know, we are moving into town. I'm actually kind of shocked about it, but also looking forward to having less land to keep up with. I'm going to miss baby goats and chickens crowing in the yard, but I will be enjoying the deer in the yard at the new house. Would you believe that my dad drove by the house the other day and called to tell me that there were 14 deer in the yard? TRULY!!! You just can't make that up! It seems that the current owner of the house feeds them. There are babies, too! I can't wait! I have been wishing for a new home for years, so this is a wish granted for sure!
A wish that I've had for a long time that is related to scrapping is for 'any color crystal that I want'. As most of you know, I'm on the Zva team and I get all their gorgeous products in the mail. What a fun thing that is! I had read something from Kim Hughs, another dt member, about how she uses Copic Markers to color her clear crystals. Now, I probably shouldn't admit this, but I didn't know what the heck Copic Markers were. Naturally, after searching, I couldn't find any locally to buy. So... experiment time... Guess what? Sharpies work like a charm!! I was so excited to figure this out! Everyone has a handful (at least) of Sharpies. If you are the rare person who doesn't, just drop by Walmart. Wish granted!! Don't you love that?
Here are a couple of layouts where I changed the crystal color. On this one, all the crystals were clear. I love red!
On this one, I just changed the lettering from clear to orangy-brown to go with the crystal strips.
So now, I have to start wishing that someone will take pity on me and help me with my blog!!! I decided that I wanted a white background and went to change it. Did I remember to save the template? NO! Gone forever! lol After the move, I'll be working on this again. I wish I knew how to do digital so that I could make cool stuff for it. For now... clean and simple is what it is!
Thanks for dropping by!
