WHOOO HOO - and a Dustin Pike Release

Hey all!

WOWZA -- what a great day I had yesterday. Our Drum Corps had a little release party for our CD's last night. I'm SO happy that this project is finally all said and done! I know the music isn't everyone's cup of tea, but I'm proud of it. Also, I took the cover photo, and did a lot of the graphics work for the booklet, so it was nice to see it all put together in the final product...wanna see??












Then -- I get home, and log in to SCS, to see my friend Staci posted a link to Nichole Heady's blog, where MY card is the Guest Star Stamper winner for last month - for use of Stars...WOW! Plus I had my money bouquet get an honorable mention in the template category...cloud 9 I tell you...what an honor! Just had to share that happy news -- A HUGE thank you to Nichole for picking my projects, I know it wasn't an easy choice!

Now -- onto the REAL reason for my post...it's Thursday -- time for some Dustin Pike love.

This week's images are all based on outer space. Lots of fun...here are my projects:

This first one incorporates the freebie for this week as well...














I flipped the moonscape vertically, and moved it off of the 'field' so that only part of it was showing. I didn't add any embellishments, and kept the layout simple, these projects were more about the digi images themselves than all that other stuff.

What I like about digi-images...you can build your scene without masking...it's GREAT! Those stars are another background that Dustin is making available today. LOVE them -- I also flipped my dragon image...I just wanted to be different, go against the grain -- and show off some versatility too.

This next one is cute and simple, but I like it alot.















I've seen this sentiment elsewhere, and thought it would make a cute 'just because' card for someone special. The sentiment was generated on my computer -- laid a text box right over the starry background...and is that Star just ADORABLE or what??? I couldn't get a good closeup of it, but I colored over the little guy with my spica glitter pen, and then covered him in crystal effects, and he's mounted on a double layer of dimensionals...

So tell me - what's something good that happened to you today?? I like to hear the happy stuff.

Thanks for stopping by!!
