Welcome. This blog is my little home on the web. It's mostly about my favorite hobby, digital scrapbooking. You might also find some recipes, home decor projects, or parenting woes. But mostly digital scrapbooking.

New Layouts - April 23, 2011

As expected, my scrapping fervor has run its course. Here are the two layouts I've made this week.  The first is just a picture of Miller that I took at the park.  We had an egg hunt and picnic with our Mom's Group.

Those flag banners are all over the place in digital kits lately.  The day I was working on that layout (before I had added the banner) I was going through some Parents Magazines I had.  I wanted to finish reading them and get them out of the house.  Well, I came across a little photographed scene - a little diarama that they had photographed, as the opening image for an article.  This photograph had a real banner with real shadows.  I thought I should study it to create more realistic shadows for my pages.  But I put the magazine down, finished my lunch and went on with my day.  Then the next day I was working on the shadows for that banner and decided I needed to find that picture from the magazine.  I went through all three magazines at least three times and could not find it again.  I don't know if I had actually tore the page out and then lost it, or was it in another magazine that had already been thrown out?  Did I dream the whole thing?  I was so frustrated!  I'm still mad at myself for not putting that page into a safe place to study later.  I can almost picture the photo in my head ... it had a yellow backdrop ... I think it was on the left hand side of the page .... Ugh!!

And here is a Project: Love, Me page.  I'm caught up again.

  1. Love these LOs (as previously stated, LOL). Shadows are something I seriously need to sit down and get a better handle on because I know they can make or break a LO. Your shadows look awesome, to me, BTW.
