7 days and counting!

Yes, that's right folks - 7 more days of school until summer break! Yipeeeee!!!

I have been working 5 days a week this past month; hence, the lack of a current blog post! I'm also 15 days and counting until my half marathon. The precious moments I have not been working I am running! 

I have to say that I feel good about the upcoming run despite the very recent setback of an annoying nerve impingement in my left leg. I think my body likes to remind me of my age! So, I'm taking a very brief but much-needed break from running to let myself heal and then it's full-throttle until the half!

I've been able to sneak in a few hours here and there learning some new Photoshop techniques in my quest for a better digital scrapbook page. There is SO much to learn in Photoshop that I am just scratching the surface but Jessica Sprague's Photoshop Friday Series sure has been helpful. Sign up to receive her newsletter or get on her blog roll because you can get all of her new mini-instructional videos for just $1 on Wednesday! I've taken Episode 2 and 3 and came up with these:


Episode 2 taught me how to use clipping masks (using shapes and die-cuts so to speak)


Episode 3 taught me how to use the drawing tool to create the banner.

That's about it for now! 
Enjoy the weekend! 
I plan to! :)
