ScrapSimple Embellishment Templates: Cast Shadow Frames

Cast Shadows (also called perspective shadows) add a more realistic element of perspective. They mimic the effect of 2 light sources, giving off a double cast shadow and therefore adding a bit of visual interest to your layouts.

My Happy Hubby

When I first met my husband, Eric, I thought, "No one could be this happy all the time!" It seemed he never had a bad day, and he almost always had a big smile on his face. After months of witnessing this, I remember telling him that it's okay to get frustrated sometimes... just go ahead and let it out. I honestly thought he was repressing his emotions! But he just looked at me with a blank stare, not knowing what I was talking about.

Well, it's now been over 11 years, and to my surprise, he really is that happy most of the time. At first, I have to admit, it kind of got on my nerve, especially when I was having a bad day. But over the years, it seems his happiness has rubbed off on me more and more.

He has taught me so much through his example, and I think I have been slowly adopting his way of looking at the world and his philosophy of attempting to live the fullest and happiest life possible. I noticed early on that in addition to being Mr. Happy Camper, he didn't hold grudges, never really judged anyone, and he didn't seem to care much about what other people thought about him. I really admire those qualities, because looking back I was probably a little grudge-y or judge-y at times - and I know I cared way too much about what people thought.

So now, together, we start out our day making a conscious effort to feel appreciation and celebrate the things we have instead of focusing on what we don't. Also, during the day we try and spend lots of time doing what we are passionate about. For him, that is singing, performing, writing, and basketball. For me, right now, that is designing, decorating, taking photos, and watching an occasional reality show. Together we love going to movies, doing tai chi and yoga, traveling, camping, going to the beach, walking in the park and playing with all the doggies, and visiting with our family and friends. More recently, we started eating really healthy and doing our Insanity® workout video, although I wouldn't put this particular workout into the "Things I Love to Do" category. Maybe eventually I will, but for now it is currently in the "Things I Dread" category. But I want to get in shape and keep growing in all areas of my life. Well, in this case, shrinking!

This year has had its share of growth and challenges, but I'm trying to find the opportunities in the setbacks and attempt not to spend too much time worrying about things I can't change. I feel lucky that I have Eric to give me gentle reminders when I get off track.

Plus, I'm really enjoying learning and growing as a designer, and I love that at 46, I was able to start on this new and very rewarding path. It's been over a year now, and I am still filled with excitement and I feel extremely blessed. I'm hoping I can keep achieving a more consistent level of happiness and that I never get complacent, never stop asking questions, and always keep trying new things.

- Cindy

P.S. The day after I finished this article, I received this from the daily affirmations I subscribe to.

I'm going to be happy. I'm going to skip. I'm going to be glad. I'm going to smile a lot. I'm going to be easy. I'm going to count my blessings. I'm going to look for reasons to feel good. I'm going to dig up positive things from the past. I'm going to look for positive things where I stand. I'm going to look for positive things in the future. It is my natural state to be a happy person. It's natural for me to love and to laugh. This is what is most natural for me. I am a happy person!

Favorite Product I've Designed:

Shabby Shores Collection Mini
Shabby Shores Collection Mini

The Shabby Shores Collection Mini was inspired by the New England coastline where my husband grew up. We go back East every summer to camp with his family. Over the last several years, we have gone to Cape Cod and Boston, Massachusetts, to Portland, Maine, and this year, to Mystic, Connecticut. I was born and raised in California so it has been such a treat to go back each year and spend time in a new, fabulous place.

What's Happening at Scrap Girls

Crops and Chats

High Noon Crop
Wednesday, September 19th - 12 Noon EDT

Join April (April Showers) each Wednesday at 12 Noon ET for the High Noon Crop. All coasts and time zones are welcome! These crops are designed to allow you to work on your own photos and themes, simply giving participants a one hour goal and a fun, new challenge each week.

On September 19th, we'll do a No Photo Challenge! Create a layout without any photos. Everything else is fine! Are there some things you'd like to document but you don't have photos? Try using scanned memorabilia or extensive journaling to make a memorable layout without photos.

Create your layout and upload it to the special High Noon Crop Gallery. You'll be amazed what you can get done in just one hour, but there is no High Noon Sheriff timing you! Hope to see you in the chat room!

Heritage Crop
Thursday, September 20th - 9:00PM EDT

Do you have boxes of heritage photos just waiting to be restored and scrapped? Are there family stories just waiting for you to write down and preserve? Then this is the crop for you! Join April (April Showers) at 9pm ET for the Heritage Crop and Chat! This month we'll cover ways to use products like ScrapSimple Paper Templates: Absolutely Blended to create unique backgrounds for your heritage pages. Come to the chat and get motivated to scrap those heritage photos and record your family stories for future generations to enjoy.

Games

September's Forum Game: Simplify September

This month's Scrap Girls Forum game, Simplify September, is designed to help you get more scrapbooking done with a series of simple steps that add up to a finished project at the end of each week.

Throughout September, Monday through Saturday, a team member will post a daily layout step in the Simplify September game thread; the first week has seven steps, and the remaining three weeks have six steps each. These steps will be posted in large purple font so they will be easy to spot.

Members who complete the steps required in the game thread and post all four layouts in the Simplify September Gallery will be entered in a drawing for one of two $15.00 Scrap Girls Boutique Gift Certificates.

Each completed layout posted in the Simplify September Gallery, up to four per member, will be entered in a drawing for one of four $5.00 Scrap Girls Boutique Gift Certificates.

You have until 11:59 p.m. ET on September 30, 2012, to complete the steps and post your layouts to the Simplify September Gallery.

For complete details, visit the Monthly Forum Games folder on the Scrap Girls Forum.
