Resistance is Futile by Tracy Kosofsky

I have nearly failed at blogging

and I have DEFINITELY failed at digital design! After a brief flurry of creation, I have been so busy the last couple months that I have barely had time to catch up with my own layouts (including finishing out the first year in Alexa's dance and school days albums). Between Alexa's birthday (three parties), dance rehearsal and recital, Mother's Day, getting ready to sell our house, and just general craziness, things have been, well, crazy! I have managed to get a few layouts done and below are a few of my favorites. I really do plan to get back to design and offering freebies, but no promises as to when. We're hoping to take a trip to Russia in early June :).

Here are a couple paper layouts I did for my Book of Me (the first uses stock photography):

and here's another paper (based on a Becky Fleck pagemap):

And finally, some digital. The first two are based on sketches by my friend Amy, who is battling cancer. You can visit her sketch blog HERE.
