2 New LOs

"Precious Amelia"

This LO was suggested by "Ann6" - a fellow "sprague-mate" from the Jessica Sprague website/community.  I was itching to make a new LO, but didn't know what I wanted my subject to be -- Ann asked me to make one based upon my avatar, which is the focal photo here in this LO.


Paper: my own design
Brush: Swirls by affaleen/
Glass Beads: Kitty Designs, "Freshilicious" /
Word Art: KittyDesigns, "MagicWords02" /
Fonts: Century Gothic (journaling) & CK_Ali's_Handwriting_Official

Photos taken July 6, 2010; journaling written Aug 30, 2010

"Kisses from a Unca"

I created this layout because of the amazing photo, which is one of my current favorites and was taken by me - I was holding Amelia with my left arm and took the pic with my right hand (I'm a lefty), w/o using view finder or the LCD screen! What's so amazing is that this image is "SOTC" -- straight out of the camera -- and other than minor spot-healing and using the sketch tenchique, nothing else was done to it (no cropping).  Also, I love the expression on Mia's face as her "Unca J" lays a smooch on her baby cheek :)
