Happy

Today, I are been mostly digi-scrappin'. Well, tonight, anyway. Today I are been mostly changing dirty nappies, but you don't want to hear about that... I couldn't resist this kit from Shabby Princess. I just loved the mix of colours in it and there are some too cute embellies. So, here is my first digi layout...

It's so tempting to want to use all the bits and bobs in the kit as they're all so scrummy, but I guess that really isn't my style and it's not as if they're going anywhere if I don't use them. Actually, they're not going anywhere if I do. That's the beauty of this digi lark. If you use a particular flower or rub-on, it doesn't matter, cos you can use them again and again and again! Hurrah! I'm really getting into this and I get to see more of D too as I'm on the PC in the living room and not hidden away in my craft room. Not that I'm going to be getting rid of my 'real' stash any time soon. Oh, no sir-ee Bob. I mean, these kits and bits are nice to look at, but you can't feel them; can't stroke the ribbons or lay your cheek gently against the paper to feel its texture... Or is that just me?! Now I have so much to learn and I think that that's just it - I love learning new things and having a go. I'll probably have moved on to the next fad in a couple of months. But we'll see....

So, to my word of 2007. I just did a quick Google search for definitions and this is what it came up with:
Create
  • make: make or cause to be or to become;
  • bring into existence;
  • pursue a creative activity; be engaged in a creative activity;
  • invest with a new title, office, or rank;
  • create by artistic means;
  • produce: create or manufacture a man-made product;

At some point I will write this out and put it somewhere I look every day. Probably on my mirror (not vain, just need make-up!) or my PC. Found a couple of nice quotes too, so will probably (digi)scrap these soon too.
