Challenge #9 - anything you want!

We all have lots of pictures that need to be scrapped, so this is a challenge to get you to scrap those pictures that may not necessarily fit any of the other challenge categories. Let's keep motivated!! (the prize for this challenge is the wonderful sense of accomplishment!) Smile

This layout would fit into the procrastination challenge but I am choosing to put it here.

ScrapAngel - I love those embellishments! So pretty...the white swirly thing really goes with the picture very well. Smile

And Trina, I think I need to learn that some open space on the page is okay. Haha. Beautiful.

This is one of the pics we had taken this year by our friend. I loved this paper, so kept the page really really simple.

Thanks. And if you hang out on this board for a little while you'll notice I like white space. A lot. LOL

I had to scrap week 2 before I tackle the other challenges.

Journaling reads: "8: Cadence was sharing her chips with her little brother. It was so sweet seeing her
offer Brandon her late night snack. 9: We turned up the music and pranced around
the kitchen. Cadence and I love to dance to hip hop music. 10: Today marks the
first official day of house hunting. Shawn and I were so excited to take a look at
2 brand new construction houses that were for sale. We were so bummed when we
got there because although they were lovely homes they were in a shady part of
town, the backyards were smaller than our closet, and the train tracks were
literally 20 feet from the house! 11: Cadence helped me make strawberry jam. She
wanted to stir all of the ingredients, which I let her do, until the sugar started flying
out of the bowl. Cadence loves to help me cook and I love having a little helper. 12: I think it’s so cute how Cadence takes care of her little babies. She will grab the kitchen towels and cover them up so they can go to sleep. What a good little momma she is! 13: I love watching Brandon play during bathtime! He puts his hands under the running water just like I do - cracks me up every time! Brandon also loves to play with the duckies. 14: Who needs toys when you have pan lids and strainers to play with?!?

Yall do such a good job!

Trina, love the white space, but haven't really had it work for me on any LOs yet! Still trying...

LMCH - That Sandcastle LO is so cute! I have a gazillion beach pictures...may have to scraplift and do something similar.

Linda - I love the journaling on your 365 stuff. Smile So for that two page LO do you actually create one document in the program you use or is that two images side by side - guess I can go try to scroll over and see!

Here's another random one I worked on tonight. I changed a few things after I uploaded that pic, but dh wanted me to come to bed with him so I did:

Thank you! I have about 11 million more pumpkin patch pictures too...might have to make some more kinda like it!

I use PS Elements -I got it last year for Christmas, but the only time I had ever used it was to do DDs bday invites last April.

If you'll notice everything in my LOs are square. ROFL Gonna have to find some tutorials on how to really use it!

SC, those are great LOs too. You have been super busy girl!!

Linda, I love seeing these and reading your journaling. TFS

Lauren, LOVE both of yours. The pink slippers, c'mon, what's the story behind this?? LOL Hilarious!! My DH would never have allowed that pic to be taken, let alone scrapped and shared online. HA!! The sand LO is awesome! Love all the journaling and the recipe for sandcastle. GREAT work!!

SC, another one from you!! You're getting better and better very quickly! Cute LO!!

the story behind the pink slippers is that I left them on the floor in the basement, I came downstairs to find DH with one foot in one of them...I asked why he did that and he said "it's comfy" So, I laughed at him, ran to get the camera, and he actually put both feet in for the pic. Little did he know it would get used in a LO and be plastered on the internet ROFL 2 days later (literally), I caught DS sliding his foot in one and trying to walk around in it. The picture is a weird angle, but he was on the move so I snapped quick. I will have to add journaling to the back or something so I remember. Those slippers have since been retired, and I have black ones now, so it wouldn't be as funny with my black slippers. DS was tromping around in them yesterday, though.

My 2.5 hour layout .... the layout itself took about 45 minutes (probably less, actually). the titles for each quadrant took a lot longer. I cut so many versions, the font is so thin that my letters were breaking apart.

The beauty of this layout is that it replaces the four layouts on my to do list. Wink One layout per quadrant!

First, I want to show you my inspiration - this was in the current Parents magazine.

And the layout

This is of my sister's sweet 16 pictures. The journaling says

When they say "Don't Blink" they mean it. It seems like you were just a newborn and now you are a sophomore in highschool and you are driving! It is amazing watching you grow up! I love you Sami!

feeling very Trina inspired today and found the prettiest free kit on the shabby princess site (I was so excited while it was downloaded, I think I may be addicted Lol )

I just reprocessed this photo my husband took of our dd in the hospital and loved it so much I wanted to do something special with it.

Gwen!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE that layout. LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!! That's the greatest idea for an event! I'm so lifting it. Infact, I'll probably do that for my baby shower layout.

Angie, I have a friend that looks JUST like the beautiful girl in your layout. :eek: I had to take a second look. Crazy. Anyways, like how you turned just one photo to an angle. Great design.

Beckie, this layout is very "you"...fun, funky and cool!!

Lauren, sweet sweet sweet! ahhhhhhhh

This is my favorite layout I've done in...forever??? At least in a really long time!

Journaling basically says that although she is super picky, she looooves corn on the cob. I had cooked a dozen ears to freeze (you can see them cooling in the back of the picture), and when I was out of the room she went and got a stool to climb up and steal one! LOL

This is Ella again - she's only 5 months old...trying to tackle as much of her stuff as I can before I try to go back and do 20 mths for Cadence!

This could have gone in the scraplift too - with the color strips that are in several of the lo's in that challenge!

These are the last two from me! I decided to try paper scrapping again tonight. These are also for her portrait books even though they are just snapshots I enlarged and/or made a collage out of. Smile I would like to add some journaling at some point.
