Captivated Visions - Face The Sunshine

Hello Everyone,

Captivated Visions has just released their new collaborative kit, Face The Sunshine over at Sweet Shoppe Designs. The colours are gorgeous:

I loved the kit so much, I decided to create 2 layouts:
The first is using some photos of my girls taken back in June, 2011. It's nice to go down memory lane sometimes and look at the older photos and see how much my children have grown.

My second layout is a little reminder to myself. 
Dear Self

Thank you for coming past. To see other layouts using the kit, please go HERE.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.

Scrapaneers - February Champions

Hello Everyone,

This month over at Scrapaneers - Champions, it's all about 'romance'.  The kit (supplied as part of the course) is soft and beautiful, and the techniques are all about beautifying the photograph and aging it to get an old romantic feel, new techniques for me.

So here are my layouts for this month:
Brandy Murry | Romantique Collection
The Nifty Pixel | Dreams Come True Alpha Pack

The above layout is of myself - shock, horror! Yes, I know. I rarely have photos taken of myself, and even more rarely scrap myself, but I'm moving out of my comfort zone, as vulnerable as I feel in doing so. :) The photo was taken by my youngest daughter.

The next layout is of my youngest daughter. 
Beautiful YOU
Brandy Murry | Romantique Collection
The Nifty Pixel | Dreams Come True Alpha Pack

Scrapaneers has many fantastic classes to learn new techniques, whether you are new to digi scrapping or seasoned in digi-land. Champions is a monthly subscription in which you receive a kit, templates and videos teaching teachniques, and of course, a very supportive forum. For more information, head over to HERE.

Thank you for coming past.:)

CSI - #191

Hello All,

CSI have just released their newest challenge for which The Nifty Pixel provided the fabulous sketch/template:

My layout, which unfortunately uses photos that aren't great quality. I don't know why they turned out so badly, but I was the only happy snapper, so it's all I have. Disappointing, but I would rather bad quality than none at all of the special moment. :)
I used a variety of kits, mainly from:
The Nifty Pixel | Sweet Thing Digital Kit
The Nifty Pixel | Passion Play Paper Pack
Jady Day | The Little Things
Lauren Grier | Every Day: Cherish

How I solved the case:
Evidence: watercolour, stripes, string, banners, food elements, hearts, woodgrain paper
Testimony: Journal about a party.
Colours: I used them all

The case closes February 26.

Thank you for taking a moment to pop in. :)

Captivated Visions - Artified: Smitten

Hello Everyone,

I am super happy to announce I have just made the Creative Team for digital designer, 'Captivated Visions'! YAY for me! The shop is at Sweet Shoppe Designs. Take a peak of some of the products HERE.

My first layout as a Creative Team member is for the newly released template: Artified: Smitten. The templates are pretty amazing as they are composed of so many textural layers that make it much easier to get interest on the page and the mixed media background look. I LOVE them.

artified: smitten
For my layout, I decided to use this recently released kit:

And my layout, which is of my son taken just over 5 years ago. Finally I scrapped it! I knew if I waited long enough, the prefect kit would present itself.:

The template, available HERE, is 20% off this weekend.

Thank you for coming past. Hoping you have a wonderful day. :)
