Digi Blog Train - The White Ribbon Campaign Awareness.

It's that time of the month for you to be aware the things around you.
This months awareness for July is called
The White Ribbon Campaign Awareness.

What is The White Ribbon Campaign Awareness? It is Australia's campaign to stop violence against women. To find more information please click on the following links


Here is my contribution to the awareness. I am trying something different. I had a good response on the flair set. I created 4 12x12 templates. Zip file contains 4 .psd files along with 4 .tif files. Scrapping with a Smile.

Paper and Elements by Ostrea Designs.
Today is my birthday... and instead of having a party or going out with friends I am taking notes and watching designing tutorials. I had lunch with Shawn and that was satisfying. Next year will be my 40th so I am looking for places to go.

On of the lessons was to make a blinkie/animation. I didn't get that far but I took an element from a new kit I am working on. That element was a fish. I forgot the background but my fish is swimming across the canvas. Isn't the fishy cute?
