MDS Monday had a great sketch this week. I got right on it and created this page, but didn't have time to post it and link it to the site. So..........I forgot to go back and do it until today and it is too late! I am happy with the way this page turned out so I decided to post it anyway.
Pixel Maven Digi Challenge for this week is a sketch. It seems to be designed more for a card than a scrapbook page. And for some reason, cards on MDS are not my favorite thing to do. But I gave it a shot and here is the result. I might just go ahead and use the sketch for a scrapbook layout, also.
I chose to let MDS choose my color combo and clicked on "surprise me" and I got bashful blue, marina mist, riding hood red, whisper white and sahara sand.
MDS Monday challenged us to put a photo in "grouped photo boxes" and then as a twist to leave one part colored and make the rest black and white. Then offset the colored part to make it stand out. Here is my sweet granddaughter playing with one of her stuffed animals.
I find it much harder to create cards than layouts in MDS. But I liked the sketch for Pixel Maven's Digi Challenge this week and gave it a try. Between the stars and the sample on the challenge page, I couldn't get my mind away from patriotic and with Independence Day coming up way too fast I went with that. Maybe I will try to do another kind of card, also!
When the Fourth of July rolls around it means summer vacation is half over or very close to it. But this is my last "summer vacation" as I am retiring at the end of the school year.
MDS Monday has us going in circles! We could use other shapes, but I like to use circles, so I went with that. It works well with the theme of this page, too. My granddaughter loves pickles. My girls never ate pickles when they were little. Maybe because I never would have thought it was something a toddler would like! LOL!
The challenge at MDS Monday is to use overlays! I love overlays so this one was fun for me. I used 3 different overlays on the background--chevron (white), dots (pink) and flourishes (black). I lowered the opacity on all of them. Finished it off with my polaroid frame and lots of sequins.
I found this beautiful color combo at Pixel Maven's Retreat. The colors are Strawberry Slush, Pink Pirouette and Basic Black. This combo was a great match for this cute pic of my beautiful granddaughter!
Love the layout from MDS Monday this week! I was shopping for an Easter dress for my granddaughter and sent this pic to my daughter so she could see the choices. My favorite was the yellow and luckily it was her favorite, too!
Love the new hive framelits! The stamp sets I used are Petite Petals with a coordinating punch (wonderful!) and Best of Greetings. The branch is from the bird builder punch. Sweet Sorbet dsp is peeking out from behind the hive framelit background.
MDS Monday's challenge for this week was to use watercolor on our project. I chose to use the freeform tool to create my watercoloring. I created 3 layers with different opacities and layered them onto each other. I used spring colors hoping it will help get through this cold and snowy winter! Hurry up, Spring!
I really been remiss with my blog lately! Let's just say 2013 was not the best year of my life and leave it at that. I'm trying to put it all behind me and hoping for a great 2014!
I made a page for MDS Monday 47 last week and was pretty happy with it. But when I went to blog it and enter it in the challenge....internet was down! And I forgot to go back and take care of it! I decided I would go ahead and show it here anyway.
And, of course, my subject is my VERY FAVORITE (and only!) granddaughter. Until she came along most of my scrapbooking was of my cats! But this little girl is so much more fun! Christmas was much more fun this year. Last year she was only 11 days old. So Grammy had a good time buying gifts this year.
