Wrapping up 2008 with these...

I have been meaning to make this post for a while. I wanted to share the last few layouts from 2008 and a few other things that I have been up to.

First off is this little beauty.

I am very proud of this design and I will tell you why. My husband asked me to design a logo for his store and their 2009 catch phrase. The design above is what I came up with. It is nothing spectacular in and of itself, but prior to 2008 I had absolutely NO Photoshop knowledge. But wait, that isn't even the best part. The best part is that he loved it so much that he had T-shirts printed up for over 200 associates to wear on Fridays instead of their regular uniform! The response has been amazing and I couldn't be more proud.

In this layout the page on the left is an actual photo we took when we where at Patrick's point in 2007. I enlarged it to 8 1/2 x 11 and put the text directly onto the photo in Photoshop then printed it out. Cool huh?
Here is one of me and my sweet boy.
These two kids are as goofy as they get! Here P & T are muggin' for the camera.
I took this photo in early 2008 when we were in San Francisco. We were walking downtown when I spotted this beautiful wall of graffiti and thought it would be the perfect backdrop to take a pic of my peeps. They are doing their best to look tough, can you tell?
These photos I took of my daughter in December. I was in my bedroom and the lighting was awsome, so I called her in so I could snap some shots. The layout lists some things she likes to do everyday. I realized once I printed up the journaling that I had omitted a word. I wrote it in and decided to just leave it at that.

I have a few more things that I wanted to share, but I just didn't have a chance to take pictures of them today. I am hoping to do that tomorrow and will get those posted. So, stay tuned. There is more to come!
