Walking the Line

I have not been a very good blogger the past couple of weeks! I do have lots to share but it's always something that prevents me from getting on here. Either it's work or schedule or, most recently, catching a bad cold and not having any energy when I'm home. I came home early again and am staying home tomorrow to recoup... hopefully I can get over this because this is not a fun way to be... ever...

I always find it uncanny how each emotion shows up at the perfect time at SFTIO. It never fails that my life story at the moment matches up perfectly with what we process through with that month's kit. It continued to hold true with this months kit - Balance. After going through the change at work, I had to do create a layout telling the story about why and documenting when it happened. I was equally excited to have these photos to use.



I really like the blocked and/or quilted look with layouts lately. It's a great way to use all your scraps and combine lots of pattern and colors without being too overwhelming. I used this layout as an example for on Exclusive Content over on our forum. It talks about unique ways to frame photos using the kit.


I am absolutely in LOVE with the alpha stickers from Echo Park. Of course I had to mix up the words.

This month continues to be a balancing month as I figure out how to reshuffle my life. It's amazing how a few hours can make such a big difference. But I can tell you that, aside from being sick right now, I am loving it and excited to finally get a new routine going. With more energy and positive attitude! :)

Hope you are having a good week!
