That Alice movie, some layouts and a freebie.

FOR TODAY... march 8, 2010

  outside my window... a beautiful crisp sunny day!!!
i am thinking... i'm so glad my husband loves to cook.
i am thankful for... sundays spent with family.
I am wearing... jeans, t-shirt, sweater and all-stars.
i am remembering... to do my grocery shopping today.
I am going... to make march's to-do list.
i am currently reading... "the shadow of the wind" by carlos ruiz zafon.
i am hoping... to do lots of reading this week.
on my mind... my word for the year : simplify!
noticing that... i do not want as many material things as i once did.
pondering these words... "learning is the fountain of youth. no matter how old you are, you mustn't stop growing" - deng ming-dao-
from the kitchen... croissants, raspberry jam & coffee.
around the house... quite picked-up and neat.
one of my favorite things... listening to music without doing anything else.
i'm creating... a 2010 calendar for my mom (with photos of my son of course!)
a few plans for the rest of the week... spend time with my niece, catch a movie or 2, read & take pictures!
from my lens...

tacos with all the trimmings

 i just love going to the movies. i saw 'alice in wonderland" and it was enchanting, witty, colorful & fun. tim burton's take on the classic fairy tale did not disappoint me. great animation, awesome costumes, surreal landscapes full of odd details & i loved wacky-freaky mad hatter ( johnny depp ♥)
for you out there with young children, i don't think this is a movie for them though. dialog is a little heavy-handed and there are not that many hysterical funny moments. go check it out if you can!

... i got to play a bit with the iphone apps. again & here's what i got - i have left them sooc so you can see some of the different effects already included in the apps. like the edgy borders and flash effects.

from the digi-scrapping world:

i was shocked to hear the news that leiko beck designs is officially closing shop! it is sad to see her online store close but i applaud her courage & determination to follow her heart in order to concentrate in 'real life"priorities.  thanks leiko for the opportunity to be part of your team - i wish you the very best in your personal life and all future business endeavors. i am sure when the time is right again, you'll come back to the digi-scrapping world with a strengthened passion and your undeniable talent!

visit her store for a huge final sale and her blog for some coupon giveaways this week!

on a different note, i have a new kind of freebie for this week: a set of 9 vintage slide frames. what do you think? these took me longer to create and hopefully you'll find them of use for your layouts.

check out these two layouts i created with the vintage slide frames:

and the rest of the week's layouts:

let's have a fantastic week everyone! don't forget i love to look at the layouts you create with the freebies so please leave a link or e-mail me. thanks!
