Memorial Day Layout

In Honor of Memorial Day I wanted to share this Layout with you.
Yet another Phoenixsm - he put this 'memorial' together at a beach in spain and had a very logical explanation as to what it represented (this happened completely unrelated to the actual Memorial day the Photos were taken sometime in February 2007)- I will post some more detailed photos later on (camera battery died on me).

fell off my pledge there ...

at fault is the nice weather - keeping me away from the computer.... and still the extreme tiredness that comes with Anemia (Iron Deficiency) but enough excuses. I am preparing my next posts in advance so I can get this Blog updated more efficiently and more quickly..

Migraines suck

After a looong while whithout any serious headaches - but boy oh boy what a migraine from Hell did I just go through - ice packs and IMITREX got me through it but it still sucked.

Perfect Bubble

A circle (bubble) inspired Layout starting with the polkadot patterned papers - I used transparency to create the title (TIP: print mirror image on reverse side of the transparency sheet to avoid smudges) and layered elements on this page, inked all the edges with the fired brick distress ink (ranger)to add more dimension and texture.

Monster Orange Thief

This LO is all about the color ORANGE and of course the fruit too - these photos were taken in Spain in the citrus fields. The title is made of different sized chipboard letters, painted with a rich orange acrylic paint and then 2 coats of glossy accents to make them really shine.

Spring 2007

Here's a layout of some really cool spring pictures I took in 2007 when my friend Sarah was visiting with her girls. I love the vibrant green color of the fields and it's the main inspiration of the color scheme on this page. I used Hambly prints white rub-ons to accent directly on the photos. The title are chipboard letters covered in pp and the edges painted a coordinating pink color.
