Designed A Logo: Who Knew?

A friend of mine does college advising for high school students. She needed a logo for her business cards, letterhead, and advertisements. I said I'd give it a whirl and I ended up working for a few days on it. After about 20 drafts, here is what it ended up looking like:
See, who knew, right? I had fun experimenting with photoshop and trying to interpret her ideas and translate them to the design.
In other news:
I uploaded this cute T-Rex baby explosion brag book to my etsy page a few days ago. I just love his googly eyes.
That's all for now. Thanks for looking,

We Scrapped 810 Pages!Kindergarten Memory Books

My fellow scrapbooking friend and I worked on the kindergarten memory books for our sons' kindy class last school year. She coordinated (and I helped coordinate) the entire process including taking photos, uploading them, printing them, and scrapping them. We organized nights where just she and I scrapped. Other nights we had coordinated times that mom's from the class could come and work on their children's books. After a whole schoolyear of photographing and scrapping (including A LOT of Cricut cutting), we completed 27 scrapbooks that were about 30 pages each!!!!

Let's see...that's about 810 pages!!!!!!!!!!!!

Every child went home with their whole kindy year documented (including the teacher)!

So these pages look pretty basic, but they are really a labor of love. These were some of my favorites. We had to conserve money and time, so we came up with a plan. We just used basic cardstock as the backgrounds in bright colors, lots of die cuts that we Cricuted ourselves, lots of hole punches, and lots of decorative scissors. I am proud of how they turned out, especially since my friend and I and a few other moms did the work mostly by ourselves.
