Leaving a Legacy Designs

I just signed on to be on the Creative Team of Leaving a Legacy Designs over at Stuff to Scrap.  Nothing like putting more on my plate!

Kimberly, the person behind Leaving a Legacy has a current kit in the STS store.  Click on the kit graphic to go take a look.

As a member of the Creative Team I make layouts to showcase the kit.  Here are the first two I made.

I love having hearts in the kit, since it is getting close to Valentine's Day.  But I especially love the puzzle pieces.  Interestingly enough, I used puzzle pieces for a page a couple of years ago....clipped family photos onto them to show the pieces of a family.  I probably posted it on this blog.

Anyway, this is a very pretty kit.  Go take a look.  And while you are over at Stuff to Scrap, take a look at the list of  Challenges the members sponsor every month.  I used to spend a lot of time doing those and I plan to start back up.  I do love to do challenges.  (I even sponsor one myself over at Hummie's World.)

IPad Fun

Sitting in my recliner playing with my iPad. Downloaded a pic from FB that Tom King posted from his birthday celebration with those 6 grand kids. I share 4 of them with him! Ny son gave me Apple money fir Christmas and I bought Photo Toaster app. And I am blogging from IPad. I love technology.

Art Fun

I did several layouts for classes for Hummie's World.  I tend to forget, and then do a bunch at once.  I wanted to share them with you.

Crop Swap

I decided to try out a Crop Swap over at Godigitalscrapbooking.  The swap is organized by my good friend Els and what could go wrong?

The swap paired us up with a partner to swap winter photos with; we would scrap each other's photo (s).  Easy, right?  My partner lives in Southern California.  What, no snow there?  No winter?  No problem.

Here is what I dreamed up for a beach photo.  The photo was teeny.  So I put it in a teeny snow globe I made.  Then I blew up the photo into a pixellated mess and ran a watercolor filter on it, then did a blend and got a really cool "painting"  I like it.

4 Play Challenge

Every Monday DesignHouseDigital puts up 3 small kits for $1 and one for free.  I have honestly never done this, but decided to be adventuresome this week and went for it. The photos were taken back in the early 90's during a trip to Mallorca, Spain.  One of the things we did was do a drive yourself safari.  Am hoping to come across more of these photos.  I recall a giraffe sticking its head into the window of our jeep.  Lots of fun for our kids!  The "template" I used was a diagram from Hummie's World Class 2, Color Blocking.

Sunshine on a Cloudy Day

Or a cheerful layout when I feel horrible.  Laryngitis, you name it.  And the weather is droopy.  Warm and droopy.  I say this every year, without exception....I hate January.

Here is something I made to cheer me up.  I made it for the Scraplift Challenge over at GDS using Doodly Spring Collab from the same site.

Sad Cat

Kitsa and Jenni had to live alone in Florida for a few weeks before Hubby could join them..whenever Jenni flew back to visit Hubby, Kitsa was very sad as she watched her pack.

Grey Challenge

Trying to post on to Blogger from my iPad.  I am on my blog in Safari Browser. It looks like I can post photos.

Today I joined Reelynn's Grey Challenge  over at HummiesWorld. She also has a new kit called Shades of Grey that you can scrap this challenge with.

Here is my Grey Layout

Time Flies Collab

The designers of HummiesWorld have released their newest collaboration.  I love it, nice muted shades of blues, grays. browns, and minty greens and it is full of gorgeous clocks.  I love to put clocks in my layouts.

Here is the collab. You can grab it from the Anniversary Sale.

Here is my first layout with it.  The colors are perfect for the photos I took while we lived in and travelled Europe.  This is a photo of my kids in a horse-drawn carriage in the Grand Platz in Brussels, Belgium.  The Platz is surrounded by elaborate old buildings, each built to hold one of the Guilds in old Europe.
