Congratulations, Kim ... and the Umbrella Girl

What a bright piece of art to start a new week! Jaema sent me this layout, in which she used my Warhol's October kit, with this added note: "my son loves Warhol AND the Morton Salt girl" so she combined both in this layout of her son. This is a really fun layout, Jaema -- thanks so much for sharing it with us and for the inspiration! [I've ALWAYS loved iconic advertising art, like the Morton Salt Umbrella Girl, so it's a treat to see it here.]


The fabulous Kim Broedelet passed the 1 million mark in her blog hits counter over the weekend!! She is a very talented, generous designer and a special person as well. It's yet another kudo for the digiscrapworld that gives us the ability to make new friends around the world, and I treasure such a gift as KimB. I sent her a big congrats over the weekend, but it bears repeating with another big WOOOHOOOOOOO today! If you haven't already dropped by her blog today, rush right over because she's sharing more of her artistry with all of us.

Thanks to those of you who've already been sending layouts using Friday's word art. With your permission, I will be posting those beginning tomorrow. I'm sooooooo grateful to you for participating. It's people like Jaema (above) and all the rest whose layouts I'll be posting this week who make this such a gratifying thing to do.

Special blessings on your Monday,
