GDS Collab Kit

These two layouts were done with the December collab kit - so pretty and so much great stuff! I really liked Beckie's word art, but Kelli & Mandi both said it should have been titled "Let It Ice."

Happy December!

I've been sending desktops of Owen & Caden each month to the fam. There are lots of cute ones this month, but I needed one with a spot for two pictures. The boys will be together at Christmas, tho, so we can post a picture of the duo together for January! This one is courtesy of Natalie Malan.

Adrianna at the Zoo

Thanks to Amber for letting me borrow some photos (again!). Caden hasn't been to the zoo yet, but Adrianna loves it!! Credits here.

Zoo Bound

We haven't been to the zoo yet, but this kit makes me want to go - I love it! I had to stop myself from plastering over the boys' pictures with animal stickers! Theresa RAK'd me with this kit a loonnnnggg time ago in a chat, and I just now got around to using it. What was I thinking?? Thanks Theresa!

Have I said how much I love this kit? I've been staring at it for weeks, looking at the awesome textures and pondering its perfection. Theresa does an amazing job!

Not real pleased with how this came out. I was stuck and decided I just needed to call it quits and move on. Hopefully the next one will turn out better!

I needed some girly pics for this kit, so I snagged one of Kelly and her girls and little Meredith.
Yes, she is mucho preggo, but hopefully not for much longer!

Summer Breeze

This is the kit for my second ST 'assignment' and although it's really cute and I love Amy to death, it was a challenge for me with all boy pictures! I did learn something new though...see that circle ribbon? It was straight and I learned how to make it into a circle allbymyself (with the help of a tutorial :) of course).

Credits here
I still have one more layout to do with this kit...there is a really cool purple curly ribbon that I want to use, I just have to figure out how to swing it.

And just because...

Queen of the Crop

Credits here

I forgot to post this layout that I did as part of Amy & Theresa's Queen of the Crop at GDS. The idea was to be able to complete all their challenges to earn all the pieces of the kits, but I got a whopping ONE finished. A little distracted by this sweet face...

The Winning LO!

Credits here

Imagine my surprise when my named popped up on the chat room screen as a new Supreme! I tried last year and got cut in the final, and with this year's competition, I really didn't expect to win. But how happy am I! Looking forward to being on the team...there are an awesome group of ladies, and we are going to pump up our GDS designers!

Yes, I do have a spelling mistake (thanks, Dad!) and need to redo it, but my computer takes forever to save and I'm just not in that patient mood right now. :)

A couple of LOs

The page I made for my swap partner at GDS.

"Anticipation" was my entry for round 3 of the Supreme Team contest. I finished the cousins one, went to upload it, and suddenly it hit me that an ultrasound photo would look really great here. So I changed the pic and title and submitted that one to the contest. I hope I made the right decision!! The competition is fierce!!

This Works Better Than Post-it Notes

Here's a PSE tip I want to remember, and if I write it down it will either get lost or chewed on by a slobbering baby.

This LO is from Week 4 of Jessica Sprague's "Up & Running with Photoshop" class. The class ended weeks ago, but I just got caught up :) The great thing about this class is that the lessons are all video-based, and are available to us forever. I loved her teaching style, and I'm definitely looking forward to the next class.

Quest For A Little Organization

So I decided to start something new and see how this works out. I've been collecting so many great things from so many great sites, but I've saved to My Bookmarks, Bloglines, and Google Reader. I decided that I would just keep all those things at this blog, and linky back to them. I'll also upload all my finished pages here (from today forward...the rest are still in Picasa). I am well aware that the possibility of no one reading this blog is about, oh...100%. That's okay. Maybe someday some newbie scrapper will accidentally happen upon this little blog 'o mine and find it useful. So, I hereby declare this blog to hold Just Some of My Scrap.
