Hi everyone, me no blog long time.
I think I was overwhelmed with all the comments I felt had to do, so did VERY few!!! My apologies to you all, the cards and projects I have seen are absolutley wonderful and all needed praise, so I will say it here, I am seeing so many fabulous creations that I could never keep up with in creativity or the standard of work you all do. Fantasic work. I think I will have to sit back for a while on my commenting, so ongoing apologies, I will be trying to do some, perhaps a few a day.
I have also had quite a few hard months, which has made me feel not in the slightest creative or even caring if I blog or not. Sorry to be so negative.
Anyhow, someone in work and I were talking and she was telling me that she was making an album for her mother's 70th birthday. She was telling me she was using an ordinary album and I really don't know why but I said "why don't you scrapbook them", now you know I don't scrapbook, I thought it a waste of time to "spoil" a photo as the other things on the page took over from the main picture, as I thought. She asked me to show her, so I showed her, online, at a couple of examples, she loved it so I said I would do one of her photos to show her what it would look like.
This is what I did for her, the trouble is I LOVED doing it and have now spent a lot of time looking for photos of my own that I can believe it or not "enhance" oh! no another addiction and something I can do digitally, my first love LOL. I have even done a page for a "challenge" below this one. I know I couldn't win, but it really did give me a buzz to try and find a photo to match the colours and then go through my digi papers to match the colours. The paper used etc are below each page.
|The digi papers I used are Mysteria by Digital Diva Delights and the leaf branch are by C Stephens at Shabby Princess, I have blurred the faces as I haven't asked if I can use the picture on my blog.|
The challenge I am entering is
