{work work work}

I feel like I'm constantly working these days. Which is weird, because for the first time ever I have products designed ahead of schedule. But the work seems to just keep piling on. Yesterday I worked all day. I hardly left the computer at all. ScrapMatters is just bustling and its tough to keep up with it all. But I'm not complaining. I promise I'm not. My job rocks. And I get to take little breaks in the middle of the day to do "CT work". I totally consider it work because I get paid in product, so I feel like I owe it to the designers to really work for them!

Like today - I did this LO for Molly. She's got a rockin' new kit out today called "Movie Night" and I love it!! I've been hanging on to these pics forever because I never had a kit that was just right for them!!

I think this would be a cute kit for Disney's Hollywood Studios pics.  I've never been there, but I know a lot of you Disney World nuts out there are alway lookin' for good kits for your pics.

The pics I scrapped with "Movie Night" are from a movie premiere I attended back in '06. It was for a movie I costume designed, back when I was a costume designer. :) A former life. haha

Yesterday, Minna released as seriously cute kit called "Winter Forrest" that I had a blast playing with.

If it seems like all I'm scrapping these days are Disney pics, its because I am!! haha It's my goal to totally finish scrapping my Jan. '07 Disneyland trip BEFORE we go back to Disneyland again at the end of February. I have SOOO many photos of Disneyland trips to scrap, it would be nice to know that at least ONE of them is 100% done. I know it seems silly that I haven't finished a trip we took in '07!! But - that's life!!! I have a hard time scrapping in order and getting a whole trip completed. But I'm determined to get this one done. I can see the light! So, I've been scrapping the last little batch of pics from that trip a LOT lately!!  

At the daytime Speed Scrap yesterday I did one of my new FAVORITE pages. Every once in a while I'll do a page that I'm so happy with I'll keep opening it up to look at it throughout the day. Yes I'm a dork.

I had a few people ask me how I did the background. In the kit I used ("I'm a Fanpire - Revamped" by Tangie Baxter) there is this really cool black and grey cloud/sky paper, and I just enlarged my photo to the height of the paper and turned the blending mode of the photo to "Overlay". That's it!! It just happened to work out beautifully. I was actually surprised how great it looked when I did it. One of those happy accidents!

There was 1 page from this trip I did a long while back (for a CT I'm no longer on) that I just did not love. Sometimes those pages happen. For that reason I never did print it. I tagged it as needing a makeover. I finally took the photos from that page, combined 'em with a few other "on our way" pictures and made a new page that I like a lot more.

Ok I know it seems like I did a gazillion pages in the last 24 hours, and you're probably thinking "DUH BRITT! Thats why you were so busy!" But I did all the Mira Design pages a while ago when she first gave us the kit to play with. But yeah - I guess I did scrap a lot. Again - I'm not complaining. I love my work. It makes me happy.

I have to have a computer break. I'll go watch our Thursday shows (The Office and 30 Rock) with my guy. Then I'll finish getting everything ready for tomorrow. I know - its 9:00, how am I not ready yet?! haha

SEE YA TOMORROW!

  6. Keep up the Disney pages. You inspire me to complete the 10+ trips I'm still trying to finish (and I just got home from my latest one last week). I love all your pages. You're one of my FAV designers/scrappers (Melissa being another...I subscribe to the DIS digi page posting but never post any more...but I love seeing everything you both do).
