I'm on a roll

I had to get something done for Cindy. Her new kit is drop dead gorgeous - even if I don't have any digital snow pics to scrap. And I love, love, love her new frame template. You can get her stuff at NDISB. I wonder how many times I can get away with scrapping these Cape Cod photos???

Free to Play!!!

Phew! I got all my paper assignments done, deadlines met, for at least a few days. So I can play!!!! I love to enhance my photos with actions. My two latest favs are Acid Wash and Color Pop from Photoblast. They make the colors in the pics so vivid. Love it! I've had this fun kit from Christine Smith for a while and just the right photo to scream summer fun - even though it isn't summer anymore. Well, it's 80 here today, so even though it's Nov. 15, it sure feels like summer.

This uses Christine Smith's Superstar kit. I also used her Rather Ragged Stitches (recolored), Freestyle Arrows, A Brush With Edge Brushes, and A Brush With Tea. Fonts are Black Jack and 2Peas A Beautiful Mess. And one of Pam's sketches from the Before the Holiday crop. Thanks, Pam! (My computer "hid" the template from me, because it came from someone else's computer - I had the hardest time figuring out what the heck happened to it!!)

I'm not sure I'm in love with the ink spatter on the photo, but hey, it's fun to try out new things and just play around, right? I was trying for a "water drops on the camera lens" effect. Did it work?

Here's a second layout for the day! Woohoo!

This one uses papers from Christine Smith's Completely Krafty Paperpack as well as bits from her Freestyle Flower Expressions and Freestyle Flowers II, Botanical Bling sets, A Few Office Doo-dads set, and her Inked and Sanded Overlay Set. Action on the photo: Sharp Shot with Color Pop, Photoblast. Fonts: Agency FB and 4990810. Sketch Template by Pam Bumbaca. Thanks Pam!!

Two in one day!!

Really hard to believe, huh? Well I did some digi scrapping today, and this is where I put those layouts!

This is a favorite photo of my dad, son and niece, taken a couple years ago. I hope to get some new pics when they're here for Christmas.

This uses Christine Smith's Warmly Yours kit, plus an inked overlay from Inked and Sanded, a flower from Freestyle Flower Expressions, and some elements from her Office Doodads kit.

I'm back

My few readers will be shocked to see a second post in the same week! See, I told you I was going to try to be more regular.

Finally I can post this very fun layout I did using Christine Borgfeld's Fearless kit. I just love these papers. I used an acid wash action from Photoblast on the photos. Photos are from our Spring vacation in Florida. The sketch is from the new Layout Blueprints book.

Happy November!!

Hard to believe it's November already. Where does the time go? And speaking of time, I hate that it's dark so early now. Not that I mind the light in the morning, but really I'm not up that early so it doesn't matter. But dark at dinner - that's the pits!!!!

I've been trying to improve my digi scrapping a little. I love the template craze. It makes creating a fabulous layout sooooo much easier. Here's one I just finished up, using a fun template from Jen Caputo and Shawna Clingerman's gorgeous Free Fall kit.
