Recent Digital Layouts

Sorry I haven't posted lately - been busy and just not making time to update my blogs... Here are my three most recent LOs. The first and second were done for a "quick page exchange" at Creative Dreams ( Credits follow each layout.

"With This Ring"
The main photo is one I took at the wedding I shot this past weekend. I changed the original to B&W, added another photo to it (floral arrangement) and blended it in, the blended in a texture overlay. I also added a white sanded overlay to the tissue paper (behind the word art). All other elements and papers are from one kit (listed below), but the tissue paper, photo corners and ribbon borders were re-colored and the opacity was lowered on the tissue paper and photo corners. The bride's wedding colors were red, black and white.

Papers, stamped frame, ribbon borders, photo corners, photo turns and word art from the "Cherry Cheesecake Kit" from Creative Dreams.
Texture overlay by rephotography (found at Flickr)
Font (on photo): Mistral

"Gramma Mary"
This is also for the "quick-page exchange." Photo is of my maternal grandmother when she was about 18 years old (mid-1930s). Page design is my own.

"Kimmie @ 4"
This last LO was done for the "52 Week Challenge" at The challenge for this week (week 5) was to use a "visual triangle" on our LO (the three flowers). Photos are of me and were probably taken by one of my parents.

Feb 1 ~ "Snow"

Made this LO for a challenge at - the challenge was to use an equal number of words for the line they are on. For example: the first line has one word, the second line has two words, etc... I'm not thrilled with this LO, but am not sure why, exactly. The title, maybe?

Photos of Cully are ones I took today and the page design is my own.

Page design is my own; photo is one I took 21+ years ago and is a copy of a 6 yr old scan, which is why the quality isn't great.'s one of my favorite photos of my son, which is why I used it anyway :) TFL.
