A few random things

Yesterday was a day off from work, so the Bear and I went to the park. She just loves the playground, it's so cute to see her get all excited when I ask "Do you want to go play?" These are a few pics I took with my cell phone, and then edited using picnik on flickr. Fun stuff! I SO need a new camera, my digital is a piece of sh*t and I feel bad borrowing D's all the time, so I end up using my phone, which is not very versatile!

Next is my layout for the latest prompt over at The Creative Type, where the challenge is to use a quote as your background. Go check it out!

I had fun using the Heidi Swap distresser on the edges here, and playing around with the quote. I printed the background page on matte photo paper, using a colored background and white text. I love the way the white letters look! I wanted to highlight certain words of the quote, but when I tried in-lining them using black pen, the results were terrible. So I printed out the chosen words again, cut them out and pop-dotted them over the background. Voila--mistake fixed, problem solved :)
