I'm trying

to get back into scrapping. I have ALL these supplies and ALL these photos...
so I'm trying!

I did this layout using the sketch challenge at
I really love the sketches at this site. Julie, the designer, does a great job!

This is Darlene and I met her at the crop I hosted last weekend. It was truly an honor to meet this strong and courageous woman. I will be walking for her in October. (and Happy to do it!)

Next... I did this layout using the challenge posted at a new blog named A La Carte. The 2 ladies running this challenge blog are UBER talented. It's worth visiting the blog just to check out their work!

This is the July Kool-Aid Challenge.

Here's their challenge:
Here in the Deep South, it's about 150 degrees in the shade in the middle of July. So, we are always trying to stay cool. Sipping iced tea, licking a popsicle, lounging in the pool (even if it is a whopping 20" deep), and slurping homemade ice cream. This menu is about all things cool!


1. Use turquoise, red, and yellow.
2. Use a popsicle stick.
3. Use a clear embellishment.
4. Use a circular layout.
5. Use a number in your title.
6. Use a handcut embellishment.

Directions: Choose at least three menu items for your challenge. Email your layout to before midnight CST July29th. Please include your name and title of your layout in your email. A winner will be drawn and announced on August 1st.

And my last one for now. I used the sketch challenge at

Sketch #62

I tried out my new bottle of glimmer mist... love that red color!

And one last thing... I won some goodies from Sassafras.
(In this post -- close to the bottom.. So awesome! They just emailed me this week... I'm so excited to
see what I get. All for keeping that cute little bunny icon on my blog!

Selective Recoloring

I guess this is OK.. I kinda like the before photo a little better, but I guess it shows the technique.

another try with textures

Since Maria pointed out that I could probably crop that photo below (and I totally agree) It's way too busy! I found another one here to test a texture. I used 3 different textures on this one... a brown paper bag, a old photo film and and another brown paper... kinda neat.

Jessica Sprague suggested to use textures on photos that are not upclose shots of people... I really do not have many landscape shots.. I don't even know where this one came from. Anyway.. fun easy stuff.

Here's the before:

And here's the after:

Kinda cool! Boy, I've got lots to learn.
