Following my dreams...

This has been a whirlwind month for me. I've been going back and forth about whether or not I should ditch my business degree plans to go to school for graphic design (which has been a big dream of mine for a long time now). I kept thinking of excuses: it's too expensive, what if I'm not as good as I need to be, etc. But finally I took the plunge anyway. Life is too short to miss out on the things we want to do. We'll make it work somehow and I'm so glad I decided to just go for it. I can't wait until school starts officially in September- for now, I have to finish up the classes I started for the business degree.
I got a new iMac yesterday (as a requirement for school) and man, this is a beautiful machine. I have to constantly remind myself that there are other things that need done other than messing with my computer! I have CS5 on the way too- I'll be glued to my computer chair eventually. =)
Anyway, here's a page I got finished today. I heart it so- it may end up in a frame to put up in my scrap room. That Luke, he'll be a chick magnet soon enough.


I used mostly American Craft's Peachy Keen- I am madly in love with the remarks stickers. The photo was printed on just regular cardstock- gives it a nice soft feel. The colors are a little off- I had to edit in my printer software since I don't have PS on this yet.
And, maybe since my house is squeaky clean from all the hard work we put in this morning, maybe I'll take some pictures and share my scrap room tomorrow.
Happy Sunday!
