Thanks for stopping by to get my part of the DST January 2013 blog train. I always love being a part of these and hope you like my part!
The previous stop is Star Song Studio.
The next stop is AK Designs.
The whole list can be found here.
I'm glad everyone is so excited about the new kit! And I can't wait to see what you all create. To help get you motivated and inspired I've created a new challenge for the Superlatives Kit. You can enter as many layouts as you'd like for more chances to win the random drawing for 50 DCs. So good luck!
Also today finishes the Birds in Snow Challenge. It was so fun to see all the layouts and elements used from the Blog Train. I'm definitely looking forward to our next Pixel Scrapper Blog Train, I'll post the final details about that tomorrow. Congrats to Lorien for winning the random drawing! Thanks everyone for participating!
I made this kit about a year ago when we finished our year of traveling. Our trip started from Korea (where we had been living for 2 years teaching English) and ended here in Amman, Jordan. We visited 50 cities in 18 countries over 310 days. Here's a little video with a few more details:
Needless to say it was a rather intense, overwhelming experience. I look back at the pictures now with good memories and a feeling of relief that I'm currently not on the road. While I love traveling, I also really love being at home. I spent several months after the trip without any real knowledge of where I was. I would constantly look up from my book or a movie and spend a few minutes trying to decide where I was. There were a lot of options.
I made this Superlatives kit to help me make a cohesive journal project of our time on the road. I wanted neutral elements and papers to stay in the background of the photos and lists I wanted to highlight. A superlative, according to Merriam Webster:
As in, "The superlative form of 'nice' is 'nicest'; the superlative form of 'bad' is 'worst'; the superlative form of 'interesting' is 'most interesting.'" Often seen in yearbooks, I wanted to do a similar type of thing to bring together the rather disparate experience of traveling on 2 continents. Since I'm a terrible journaler, making lists is something I can do without too much stress, and I thought other people might enjoy thinking about and scrapping some superlatives from their own life. I look forward to seeing what you all come up with.
My new standard for releasing items on the site will be to upload the kits, and then over the next couple of weeks upload the individual assets, so those are coming if that's what you are waiting for.

I love digital scrapbooking. I also love to read and bake cookies. Especially while drinking tea. I've lived around the world, and love to travel, which is usually the theme of most of my scrapping projects.
