It's tax season, so I've been busy gathering receipts, 1099s and other miscellaneous documents that you need to file your taxes with. When you own your own business, taxes take a bit longer than when you're just filing a simple 1040, and you never get money back. You usually owe. Fun times! It's not too bad since we've been paying in all year, so it will go quickly. I should totally scrap this, all the big piles of receipts, the Turbo Tax box & 1099s! Really, it's a part of life, so maybe I will.
I figured I'd take a break and update my blog real quick. I think this layout is one of my favorites to date. I didn't use any patterned paper, which is pretty unusual for me, because I love patterned paper.
I used my Silhouette for the title and the leaves. For the background, I used the actual brochure that was at the conservatory. My husband and I took a day off, and went on a date to Phipps Conservatory in Shadyside. I got some awesome shots of plants.
Here's the layout:
I got the leaf image from Keri Bradford's blog. She has some nice designs for die cut machines.
Here are a couple of close ups:
I guess I need to get back to the taxes. I only have a few more things to print out, then we can get to it.
So tell me, are you the type of person who does their taxes right away, or do you wait until the last minute? I think if I was getting money instead of paying, I'd do it a lot sooner. ;)
