all doo dads by Mo Jackson

I confess - I went do dad shopping and came home with more doo dads that I can ever possibly need! In case you have not guessed , I love the "shabby " style and have lots of said real life do dads in my house. I redid my stairwell with - you guessed it- shabby stuff. I bought some ornate white 8x 10 frames and the layout shabby Ben is in one on the wall . I have 2 more 8x10 layouts to do. Such fun- my problem is that I do not have very many great photos. I could blame my 3 megapixel camera - but I think it is the photographer- lol ! So I am trying to take more with my SLR- film rebel. My dream is to have a digital rebel- but do not see that in the near future.

In my do dad picture- I did my first torn paper from scratch with a scrapartist tutorial- I like how it turned out- but next time I think I will add a tiny drop shadow to the top paper. I spent yesterday organizing and downloading some new kits. Eve Recinella is having a 40% off sale and I got some great kits.

Now I need to get busy and use them. I want to take some better pics of Emily- have some good ones of JD. But today is my knitting group and they must think I have dropped off the earth- so I want to bring Ben and show him off- wink. Emily has a basketball camp all week and she is actually going and not giving me problems. - She usually signs up and then decides she doesn't want to go.

Hello to all my DRU sisters - thanks for stopping by and I love the comments! I need to stop in and say hello more often. Seems like my computer time is spent trying to learn how to do things in Photoshop and my layouts take forever! One day I would love to design- but have to learn all the basics first!

Have a great day! Lisa
