I totally threatened Stampin'Cat with a digital layout and she looked kind skeptical... I hope she likes it anyway! I love how this page turned out, but I think I probably spent more time fiddling with options than I would have if it were my photos.

"I used paint dauber on the Heidi Swapp ghost letters to create a lemon peel effect, and dabbed the ink around the frame edges. The stickers are by Magenta, citrus peel-offs applied onto yellow rouche paper with great texture with a little bit of glitter gel pen for accent!" Stampin'Cat

I didn't use a paper trimmer and I only cheated a LITTLE bit by doing the photo layout part digitally. The rest is paper, so this is a true hybrid layout. To cut, I used by deckle-edged decorative scissors on everything. Good challenge, Jill!!

So despite further technical difficulties, this time with my Cricut, I am posting this challenge early! I really had no idea what the heck my random things were going to be until like Wednesday, then 'Miah was on a super cute spree all day and said the cutest things and I was suddenly inspired! Although, one of my personal favorites was when he said "Baby Elijah looks like a jellybean"...but that was SO three weeks ago, I wanted to be slightly more current!

Hey! Am I first one posted this week.....woohoo! Here is my favorite quote page. I thought I would put a quote number at the top and keep doing layouts like this every now and again and maybe someday have an album of favorite quotes. It could happen!!
I got the basic design of the layout from this month's SS Magazine Father's Day Layout by Kim Morgan on page 34. I used the CK Digi Kit Flower Girl by Jennifer Sprague. I played with a lot of filters and other editing effects on the photo. I am not exactly sure if I like the results but I will print it out and worst case I will take the photo out and replace it with the more gently edited photo.
My quote reads: "Do not underestimate the value in doing nothing, just going along and listening to the things you can not hear." Adapted from Calvin & Hobbes.
I am so glad to see that Lori has joined us and with such a great starting layout!!
Yeah, 2 become 3! I am so excited!

Ok, so I didn't use a LOT of ribbon on this layout, probably because I am just not much of a ribbon user to begin with, making this a TRUE challenge for me. I used the BasicGrey Periphery papers that I bought at convention along with the coordinating Bazzil Cardstock. Journaling reads: "Megan, you have not had an easy time with reading. It has proven to be quite a challenge for you, but you have worked very hard & overcome your difficulty and have even learned to enjoy reading. There have been a few books that have especially captured your interest and the Spiderwick series have been one of these."
Ok, so I think I am a challenge or two behind :-), but I will do my best to keep on scrappin' and postin'!!
