Loving my Time Off!

Even though it was very unexpected—I am loving my time off!!  As many of you know I shattered my ankle in January—which is still healing and as far as I am concerned—it’s taking toooooo long to get the use of my ankle back.  But it’s coming, and the doctor told me it would take at least a year, so considering that I have come a long ways.  Well than the 2nd blow I was dealt was losing my job on Feb 28th.  I was devastated!!!  But I am another casualty of the economy and after 15 years of service to my boss I was out of a job.  But I am finally coming to terms with it and I am trying to make the best of it.  I have been feeling sorry for myself for the past few months and instead of making good use of my time off I have been wallowing in self pity!!  Well I am finally starting to feel a bit better, and each day will get better.  I need to make some serious choices in my life as far as where do I go from here.  I am 55 years old and I do have a lot of good qualities to offer—but I also love my digi scrapping, so I am coming to the point that I am going to try and give designing my best effort!!  I have learned a lot, but I still have a lot to learn.  So I am going to seriously start creating and see where I get with it.  It is a very competitive area and there are a lot of excellent designers out there—I am not even sure there is even any room for someone like me out there, but I won’t know unless I try.  So as I learn I will share with you.
Now as you all know I am on Kimb’s CT and she has a new kit in the store today called Timeless Elegance.  It is a gorgeous kit that was made because she had a request from a couple of close friends.  This was the perfect kit for me too because I have been working on my stepson’s wedding album and these were the colors of the wedding.  Black, red, grays—perfect!!  And it comes with a bonus free alpha with the purchase of the kit. 
Here is the LO that I made using the kit and I must credit this page to akizo—I scraplifted her page because I sooo loved it.

AND because I have more pages to get done for the album I made a 2nd page.
and there are some freebie QP’s made with this kit as well---take a look at them.

AND Kim has also made a freebie alpha and paper pack add-on as well.
AND Loucee has made this awesome desk clock hybrid project from the kit as well, and if you head over to her blog she is giving you the directions on how to make your own.  How awesome is that!!!
WOW!!!  Do you agree with me that this kit is gorgeousness??!!  Another perfect creation by Kimb designs.
Well that’s all for today.  Keep checking back because like I said—I am going to be doing some learning and sharing.
