May Daze Challenge # 8

I love these photos of brother and sister having such a great time! When they're 11 & 13 I'll show them this pic to remind them that they really do love one another!!

The kit was provided by Elemental Scraps just for participating in Challenge # 8.

May Daze Challenge # 6

For this challenge, we were to take an old layout and re-do it. Wasn't really a problem for me to find one that needed extra work. Here's the original layout.

Here is the updated layout:

I definitely prefer this one.

May Daze Challenge # 5

Well, the rules were simple; let the inspiration flow. And, we were provided an amazing mini-kit by Captivated Visions. Thank you, Rachel. Here's my layout for Challenge # 5:

This is what the newsclipping says:

"Amazing discovery by demoliton crew

Paintings by famous artist, BarbK,have been found in the basement of the house where Ms.K grew up. The demolition crew were ridding the residence of the past 100 years of accumulated items. One of the boxes contained the precious works of art from the artists’ early years. They will be offered for sale, by auction, at the famous “Sothebys” They are expected to sell in the $20M - $30M range." Not only did the inspiration flow, but my imagination ran wild.

Here are two layouts using the same photograph. Very different effects, as you can see.

Body Art Challenge

Scrappers Online is hosting Body of Art Challenges. I just completed # 1. Besides being about 'hands' there was a required element to make your own word art. I've been doing that lately so this was great for me. Take a look at my layout.

I used papers and elements by Angie Kovacs and Bella Gypsy from Elemental Scraps.

May Daze Challenge # 3

Doesn't Jack look fierce with his face painted up. I looked at that photo and thought he looks like a Little Warrior....

All papers and elements are available at Elemental Scraps in the May Color Play section. There are some great deals there for only $1.00; go check them out.

May Daze Challenge # 1

For this layout, I used a template from Bella Gypsy's Testosterone Zone.

Would you like to win a 500GB EHD? If so.....

...then visit Elemental Scraps blog for the low-down on the new May Daze contest. I'm off to complete the first three challenges because I would love to win that 500GB EHD. Not only that, but they have some awesome prizes up for grabs just for doing what we (me and readers of this blog) love to do -- digiscrapping. Get going and start scrapping!

Here is Challenge #2. It's done out of order because # 2 is due TOMORROW (May 11th) and I didn't want to miss the deadline.

The papers and elements are all from kits provided by Elemental Scraps. Now that's a deal and a half, ladies. Go get 'em for yourself.

Tea Party!

Ava is all girl and loves her tea set. I never leave hungry with all the tea and cakes consumed during even a short visit with her.

James and Papa John

What a beautiful photo! It is worthy of a page all its own, I think.

Did you know......

....that this weekend all of the digi-scrapping communities are celebrating (i)NSD. That translates into (inter)National Scrapbooking Day and also means savings like never before. I would venture to say that digi-scrapping stores everywhere are having huge sales. Not only sales, but challenges, contests, prizes, giveaways and so much more. That being said, I participated in two speed scraps hosted by Connie Prince and here are my layouts.
