Easter Joy Digi Scrapbook Element

Just having some fun with a Clarendon Font & Pea Bhea’s Words Font; a Text decoration inspired by oneTut’s and I think that’s about all.

Have a Blessed Easter.  The kids are super excited and should be interesting to control their sugar filled bodies at Service on Sunday.

Have fun with these png’s.

This year: “Going back to School” Update.

This year has been a busy one, but I’m in the final few weeks of school at Algonquin College with my post grad ePublishing Certificate.

For any of you who are thinking of taking the step of going back to school as a “mature” student, I won’t lie, it’s tough. When I went to University as a teenager/twenty something it was one thing, but as a mature student, it was a completely different trip for me with my young family.

If you’re thinking about it, go for it what do you have to loose?  I didn’t get to do as much of my hobbies & crafting as I normally enjoy & my kids, DH & friends made many sacrifices, of which I am very grateful.

I thought I’d show you a peek of some of my homework &  what I’ve been up to in Dynamic Media (1 of the 6 courses this semester):

To be honest, this CS5 flash Dynamic Type assignment, I loved doing & didn’t take too much time.

I’m starting a new chapter of my life & of learning & as hard as this year was & it was Totally Worth IT!

Also looking forward to getting back to the craft room to get my hands gluey again.  May …
