Squirrel Girls Challenge--Colorful Silhouettes

I really love this technique from Technique Junkies. It really lends itself well to a variety of stamps too. I used Club Scrap's Ivory Elegance swirl stamp (my favorite background stamp) and then I got these new Inkadinkadoo clearstamps to go with CS's new Wildflowers kit for May. I used Wild Honey, Mustard Seed, Victorian Velvet, Peeled Paint and Broken China Distress inks and it's mounted on some K&Co paper. The little butterfly is a Tim Holtz um.

Head on over to Nancy's blog to check out some of the other entries by the Squirrel Girls.

Weekly Chronicles # 19--Mother's Day

Still having my troubles posting pics in the gallery over at Club Scrap so going to link up from here again. This week is in honour of our mothers and I found this sweet slide of my mom and I, very soon after I arrived. I used Club Scrap's Gratitude and Arts & Crafts kits for the layout.

Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful mom's out there. And a special Happy Mother's Day to my own mom. Thank you for all you do, mom. I love you!!!!!!!

Weekly Chronicles Week 18

I'm participating in the Weekly Chronicles Challenge over at Club Scrap and normally I post it in the gallery over there, but I'm having computer "issues" so I'm trying the linky thing this week, till I figure it out.

This week's theme is in honor of National Scrapbooking Day and so I took some pics of the process I'm going through to scan all of my grandpa's slides into the computer and created a layout based on that. The scans and layouts are all going to be a surprise for my family so I haven't been sharing them here, but this one it's ok to do that.

I used elements from 3 Club Scrap kits for it: Concrete Jungle, Full Circle and Tahiti.

Digital Play with Munsel Lake Pictures

I took those same pictures that I posted yesterday and played around with them in PSE 8 to create a couple of digital layouts.

The first one of the sunrise, I posterized the picture to enhance the sunrise and really like the way that turned out. The page is created with Club Scrap's Aurora Borealis digital kit.

I took the 3 osprey pictures and used a CS template from their Concrete Jungle kit to make them look like old deckle edge photos and then my PSE play was trying to create the look of those glass sea floats that you find along the beach. This one used papers and images from CS Come Sail Away kit.
