gina made me do it :)

i was planning a few crafty things yesterday, but in the end, i spent most of the afternoon writing a list of 100 things i love, and then turning it into a digital page. see, it was this way: gina made an amazing LO for this challenge at the digichick. i found both the idea (list 100 things you love right now...trying hard to be both specific and creative) and gina's take on it to be completely awesome, so of course i had to make one, as well. and since the challenge ends monday night, it was sort of "now or never"!

(~digital materials~ background paper and epoxy heart: "cherry sugar sunshine" kit, girl friday, digichick; bird and glitter sparkles: "my drama queen" kit, vinnie pearce, pixel canvas; frame: inverted hipster plume frames #1: anna aspnes, designer digitals; fonts: xenophone, 2 peas goofball, cry kitty & hurricane...all downloaded free from t'internet; software: broderbund printshop)

you may recognize the digital paper from yesterday's BG/2S4Y card. considering the theme, i decided that i should only use products i especially love to enhance my list! that paper, the mix of font styles, the color pink, and the grungy, flourishy frame are big on my hit parade right now, as is that divine bird! i'm quite happy with the way this turned out, actually...i think i am going to print it out and paste it into my art journal!

so what are some things
*YOU* love right now?
tell, tell!
better yet: make your own list...or journal page...or layout...and put a link in the comments!!!
