Uppercase Living fun

OMG!! It's been a whirlwind of fun with girlfriends, Judy and Danna visiting. Eating, shopping, computer and photoshop practicing. We have all learned so much. And today we put up some Uppercase Living wording in a few places in my house. I LOVE IT!! They add so much to an area. This one is a picture of the entry into my living room. Above the entry it says "It's Good to Be Home".

We, actually started out in the kitchen with Bon Appetit on the back splash of my stove top. The surface is Silestone and it applied with no problem at all.

To add a warm feeling to the front door, I placed a "Welcome".

It sure was easy to apply these. I can't wait to put "CREATE" in my computer room next. Check out Uppercase Living at Danna's site listed on side of my blog.

A New QP for Kim's CC

I'm getting ready to have some girlfriends (Judy and Danna) come visit this coming weekend and am so excited. We will be eating, shopping and playing with Photo Shop. YIPPEE SKIPPEE!! We always come away with so many ideas and tips when we all get together. Not to mention the DSW shoes that will be added to our collections. hehehe Oh, and Danna, who is a demonstrator for Upper Case Living, will be helping me put up some quotes on my walls. I'm pretty excited about that. Check out her website link, on the side bar. I'll post pictures after they are done.

SO, in between DH's birthday and getting ready for my friends, I have made a QP using my kit. Help yourself to it and I hope you can use it.

Kims August Color Challenge

I'm back from a wonderful cruise to Alaska taken on a Stern Wheeler called the Empress of the North. This is our 2nd cruise on this small ship and we've loved doing it each time. The first was down the Columbia and Snake Rivers in Oregon. But this Alaska cruise was spectacular. I took a helicopter ride so that I could walk on a glacier one day. Then hiked with an armed guide through the forest to watch bears catching salmon another day. The bears were so close that it was scary. Fifteen whales played around our ship made for some great camera shots! And I've seen more eagles that I've ever seen in my life. So, if you get a chance, be sure to visit Alaska.

I jumped right into doing another Color Challenge for DSO and Kim. This is the kit I came up with after spending days and days in Photoshop as I continue to get through my learning curve. Hope you enjoy it and be sure to go to DSO to get other submissions. Kim even gives a free mini kit for layouts, kits or quick pages.
