Challenge #11

The wonderful ladies at Scrap Orchard sponsored this leg of the race. We are challenged to scrap a page with only one photo and a question (which can be the only journaling on the page). I scrapped this photo of my dad when he was a senior in high school. (I think it was 1952.)

Challenge #10

Challenge 10 was a road block and since Penny (#1) did the road block on January 20th, it was my turn (Penny #2) to make the layout. It was hosted by Pixel Gypsy. I was instructed to interview my partner (Penny #1 again!) and make a layout based on that interview. We could only use 2 main colors and 2 designers. I also made a recipe card of my version of Penny's favorite comfort food. Think I'm going to have it for dinner tonight! Click here to go to the NDISB gallery for the credit list and a better look at the recipe. Thanks for stopping by!

Challenge 8

This challenge was hosted by the wonderful people at Oscraps. It was styled after the popular show American Idol ~ Scrap Idol! I picked this wonderful layout at NDISB by Tchela at NDISB to lift. Pictured here is my baby girl, Cari, 20 years ago when she wouldn't let that kitten out of her sight. Click here to go to the ADSR gallery for credits. Thanks for stopping by!

Challenge #4

I have been impatiently waiting for Challenge #5 today, but then it dawns on me that I haven't posted my Challenge #4 here yet! LOL!!!

I am not the type to usually go to the "artsy" side -- I like my traditional papers and layering concept, and my white space as well. But to the dark (art side) I went.

Here we are on challenge #4 ~ It's hosted by Tangie Baxter Designs and it's a doozy! I'm pretty new at digi scrapping so I'm not always sure about the terminology. This challenge is called "Art and Soul" and should be art inspired. I decided to make a layout of Cari because she is the artist that most inspires me! Here's what I made:
I want to make sure you can read my journaling, Cari, because I am so proud of you. It says: When I feel that I haven’t made much of my life or am unsure of my reason for being, all I have to do is look at you, my child, and I understand all that is beautiful in the world. You are so talented and full of creativity that it takes my breath away. I am so thankful to have you in my life. You fill me up with love.
