Template 27 and A Couple of Pages

I'm BAAACK! My house is clean! Ish...I DID clean it all the way, but life with a toddler makes it difficult to keep it clean LOL. As it turns out, the friends we'd invited over won't be able to make it, as their 2 year old and 10 month old twins are recovering from RSV. They're almost better, but we all agreed it was better not to risk it. I don't want Emma to go through that unnecessarily. So we'll be celebrating Easter with just the 3 of us. It should be nice, though. We have lots of fun things planned. Hopefully we'll be able to do all of them!

Ooo, Emma's ABC Book came in the mail on Wednesday! It turned out way cute!! LOL, ironically, the printer is only about 4 hours away from me! I didn't know that until I saw the address it shipped from. It's not perfect (it chopped off part of the edges), but I'm generally satisfied. It was definitely worth it. And Emma will LOVE it forever!

I have a new template for you! But first, a couple of pages:

First, we have the most recent speed scrap on BAM. These were the rules this round:

1 1 photo. You may frame it if you like.
2 Add 2 solid papers (these can be heavily textured just not an clearly visible pattern) Stack them.
3 Find 3 more papers. 2 of which should be patterend. cut into shapes and layered beneath your photo
4 Use 4 elements. cluster them to one side of your photo. These may be repeated as desired.
5. add a string, and some kind of fastener to the page
6. you may add up to 3 more elements as long as they are layered between your stacked papers
7. title, date, journal if you wish (if making your own alpha, the paper used does not have to be one from the LO)

And this is what I did:

Papers - me
Glitter styles and elements - Kimi (BCC1 and BCC2)
Fastener string - Nini-lolo, Happy Birthday
Fonts - Too Much Paper, Tracy

I also just finished my weekly challenge page - just in time!! Our challenge this week was to use one of the ScrapMatters Design Star round 4 kits (you have to check these out if you haven't already - awesome freebies:D) and recent pictures. LOL, our lovely hostess Kimi wanted to see current pics of our kids/us. Naturally, I only used Emma pictures;) I hate photos of me. But I'll be posting a self portrait shot soonish, since we have a self portrait photography assignment. I have an idea what my final self portrait will look like, but I have yet to put it together. Aaaanyway, I digress (I have a tendency to do that, if you haven't noticed - especially late at night like this). Here's my page for the weekly challenge:

Kit - Man in the Moon Designs, Carousel Ride (Scrap Matters Design Star round 4)
Fonts - Scriptina, Too Much Paper, Tracy

I haven't done as many pages this week because 1. I was cleaning, 2. I've been sorting through my digiscrap stash and disposing of all the ugly kits, and 3. I have hardly any room left on this drive and need to install my new slave drive before I can really do a lot. I needed a little break, too. As much as I love digiscrapping, sometimes I just need to set it aside for a bit. I also got dragged into other projects by various family members. And we were celebrating the end of the semester for John. Woooohooo! No more school till September:D But I'm back now, and with a new template for you to play with. I have a wordart to share, too, but that will get it's own post:)

Template 27 is my LO for the weekly challenge:) It's a 2-page LO in PSD format. Wow, I've now made as many templates as I am old;) As always, I'd love to hear back from you and see your pages with my templates. Here's the preview:

You can download it here.

I'll be back in a few minutes with a wordart:D
