A Few New Pages

As I was downloading kits and looking at the CT examples I realized that I had been creating my digital LOs as if they were paper LOs, and that I could probably start using a little more creative freedom when I'm doing digi scrapping, especially when using the different elements and embellishments.

So anyway, I may start trying to do some of that soon, but in the meantime, I started working on this two pager last week, but haven't been entirely happy with it.

This is the house that I grew up in, and my dad and brother are renovating it now. They ended up taking a break this summer because my dad had to have some heart surgery. Anyway, I will probably have lots more LOs as the renovation continues.

I figured I could also use this for the brown challenge. Didn't know if I should just put one of the pages or both?

I always see lots of little things I need to "fix" once i upload them. Haha, I'll need to go back in and make a couple of changes before I upload either page.

I just love this picture of Cadence swinging and wanted to scrap it.


Will try to link this in a bit...gotta find exactly what I used! Okay, can't figure out the link, but the page that I downloaded with it says DesertScraps.com A Little Love - but when I go to that webpage I can't find it.

Tomorrow I plan to finish up my Phone Tag LO and start scrapping some of my SNOW DAY pics! Yahoo

Thanks for looking.

I think it is great that you are scrapping the renovation LOs. Love the swing layout, the colors are pretty and that is such a cute picture of her.

I totally agree with you... I try to do most of my digiscraps as if they were my paper scraps, but better cuz I can reuse the paper and embellishments over n over n over again! These LOs are awesome, love the journaling! I would put both the browns in as it tells the entire story. Thanks for the freebie link, I love her work! How old is Cadence? She looks so close in age to my Journi who just turned 18 mths. She's such a cutie!

***Nevermind, your siggy just appeared... looks like she's 21 mths, which is very close to Journi... awesome all of our lil girls are close in age! Smile

very cute! love seeing the old house! (I'm a grammar freak, do change "it's former" to "its former" before you print Wink )

And Cadence swinging is so cute!!!! Can I make a suggestion? Can you tweak the photo of her so that she's a little more pink? The yellows in the background are making her seem more yellow than she is. Does that make sense?

Please don't ever hesitate to correct my grammar! I'm horrible. Seriously. Smile I have found errors on every single one of the LOs I have done. :doh:

re: making the the photo pinker...I don't know how to do anything with my photos in PSE. I just use Picasa. The only thing I can think of that would add pinkness is to increase the saturation. Will that work, or is there something "easy" I can do in PSE?

Love the restoration pages. Those are fun to do and you will be glad you did some day. They are all great though. TFS

Can you tell me your name again? I can never remember and Statechick is just too long to type out. Smile

These are all great pages! Love the brown restoration ones. I would put them both in for the challenge...they flow so well together. Love the swing one too. I like how you did your journaling up from the corner.

I love the brown page too, you have to sumit it for the challenge! Great alpha for the title (going to check it out once I'm done here).
