Two Easter Layouts

April 20, 2009 at 2:03 pm 3 comments


Okay, so Designer Digitals was having this rocking contest where you could win an iPod nanochromatic.  Seeing as how I left mine in the last hotel room we were in, or dropped it somewhere over spring break in Nashville, I was thinking I was bound for this contest.

I worked on it some this morning, taking a break from life, and wanting to scrap some Easter photos.

However, having finished, I realized the contest was over already.

I hate it when that happens!

On the up-side, there were some really great layouts to see.

I started with blocking, then decided to try some photo-merging (above).

Only one of the photos is used twice, so I think I can switch it out and have a two page layout ready for print?   I’ll try to do that while files are open!


It was sunny, so it was easier to let her “look around at things” than to look up…her eyes hurt too much for that.  But the sun made her dress glow, so I didn’t want to waste a pretty, clear day!

I’ll have to print and 8X8, but I can mount that on another layout for a 12X12 book if I want.

    These are absolutely beautiful. I really can’t decide which I like best. They are all precious! And guess what??? Lindsey wore that SAME DRESS last year. It was one of my favorites and I wish so much it had fit her again this year.

    You’re so creative and talented. What a blessing to have these things to pass down to your children.

    Love you to pieces, dear!

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

recording, photographing, learning, creating.

I am married to the love of my life, as we raise three children, learning the ways of grace.


Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)



"We shall not waste our time in looking for extraordinary experiences in our life, but live by pure faith, ever watchful and ready for His coming by doing our day-to-day duties with extraordinary love and devotion." ~Mother Teresa



"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not come. We have only today. Let us begin." ~Mother Teresa




A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in it's vicinity freshen into smiles. --Washington Irving




When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -Harriet Beecher Stowe
