NZ Dare # 35

This is my take on dare 35, the photos we took when our kids were small seam to be small and usually at a distance. I love these photos of my son as they show his facial expressions.He really was so irresistable as a baby .

This is the link for colour inspiration

Well this is the very first Lay Out i did, i remember spending hours humming and haring lol as first layouts go i guess its not to bad , it looks better here than in real life as you can see the white edges around all the cut outs (i didn't know about inking then) This was a pack i brought at spot light the frames were already cut.

a very yummy omlet with bacon and mushrooms, then bigest pancake you ever did see,it was follded over with a hug lump of ice cream and a big bloob of cream, the center was filled with slithers of some sort of soft nut and fresh strawberrys with a yummy sauce it was devine,
but very bad for the waist lol.
Today i went cloths shoping then down to portwaikato beach and spent the day with family and friends, we had a HUGE amount of food, loads of salads, whitebait fritters,musscles,prawns,BBQ

Beautiful Sonia

I submitted this layout to up2scrap magazine, the call was for a layout about a scrapbooking friend, I was thrilled when it was accepted.
I meet Sonia on the message board in trade me, she was so bubbly and full of life so you can imagine my surprise when i found out she was going through chemo for cancer.This LO is deducted to her as she was the person who inspired me to scrapbook. Sadly Sonia lost the battle , If you wont inspiration read her web site,this is my thank you to her.

Now here's an awesome tip, i saw this on another scrapbooking site and wondered why i hadn't

thought of it my self.

Use you adheased felt flowers and boarders as stamps, cut pieces of and stick to your stamping block, gives a great effects and is a very cheap quick way to do something different with out

spending loads on stamps. I will have to look at other things i could use, I'm sure theres other

Altering photos

I have had so much fun playing with photos i thought i would share some with you.
The top photo of my son i altered then added it to a back ground and faded the edges so
it would blend in with the moon, i call this on "MAN IN THE MOON" lol
The bottom one i added a rainbow and a pattered fade around the edges.
You can add any back ground you like
I did these using the free trial, if you would like to have a play go to this link Theres so many different
things you can do.
Now i have done a few the next steep in to get busy scraping them,but first i am going
to have a big sort out and reorganise my stash, i have brought some new containers and
a trolley with 5 large shelves, it also has wheels.
Would love to see your lay out if you use the photo editor.
thanks for visiting
