Hi everyone! It's time for a new challenge at Lasting Memories and this week, Claire has challenged us to use "Shades of Green" on our layouts and she wants to see at least 75% green! I've been working away on some layouts, I am NOT a chronological scrapper by all means! I am all over the place. This layout is Ashleigh holding my niece, who is turning 5 in April lol, but the point is, I am getting them done and in albums, right?

Ashleigh holding her brand new cousin!

Feeling Under the Weather?

You can stand under my umbrella!

We're embossing at Suzy Bee's Bloomin Challenge this week! We are being sponsored by Bugaboo and I chose to showcase "Fancy Umbrellas - Umbrella 1". I wanted to play around with digital embossing filters, so I colored my image in PSE9 and then played around with the filters in there. I took the sentiment from Rhianna :)

Thanks for stopping by! Come on over and join the fun if you can!

DSC #79 ''Black, White & one other Color"

Morning! Time for a new challenge at Digitally Sweet! This week we're sponsored by Luna Girl (LOVE her stuff) and we were given a bunch of images to choose from to showcase. Our challenge is to create a project using black, white and only ONE other colour. I chose these 3 images and the colour of the matting, I pulled from her lips. The music background is also one of LunaGirls images. One winner will win all the images we had to play with! I think this turned out pretty good and hopefully you'll be inspired to join us!

I did my 100% digital LO in MMS v5, then uploaded into my Microsoft Digital Imaging software and added a "Watercolour Traditonal" filter to it. Thanks for stopping by today!

BIG Bang at Digi Darla's

(second post, please scroll down for my Lasting Memories layout)

As you know, yesterday Digi Darla Designs closed her doors. We are still running the challenge blog and this week we need your help. We want to show Kim and Emilea how much we love and appreciate them for their hard work and dedication. I started Digi Darla's Challenge 2 yrs ago to help Kim promote her store. So, with the doors closing, it only seemed fit to close down DDC as well. We thought about revamping it and decided as a team we were taking it out with a "BIG Bang". We have lots of prizes to give away and we hope you'll join us. If you have a digi darla image, we'd love to see it. Don't have one but want to join? We have lots, so please, leave a comment or contact me and I'll send you one. Help us send our challenge out with a bang .. here's some of my favourite creations using Digi Darla images.

Be sure to visit the challenge blog and all the DT members as they say their goodbyes too .. thank you for stopping by and I do hope you'll be able to join us as we spend one more week together before closing the doors at Digi Darla's Challenge blog.

It's "Spring Time" at Lasting Memories!

Hi all! Did you remember to change your clocks ahead?? Hope so!

So, It's spring time at Lasting Memories and we're looking for flowers on your LO's this week! This is a LO of pics from my 40th last August. What a hoot :) Love the flower pot idea! I still have to fill them all in, but I thought it was the perfect addition to my layout. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a happy Sunday!

Happy Birthday

This week at Digitally Sweet, we're having a photo inspiration challenge! We're asking you to use this photo as inspiration:

and we're being sponsored by Di's Digi's

I created a birthday party invitation, which is 100% digital. I added the inspiration photo as my background and played with the opacity to make it a little lighter. I'm happy with the outcome.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great wknd!

Ribbons and Bows!

Morning everyone! We have a new challenge at Suzy Bee's: Buttons and Bows and we're being sponsored by Stitchy Bear! For my creation, I used "Butter Blue". I coloured my image and then scanned to my computer. Then I created the card front in my digital software and uploaded my image :) So it has my personal touch (colouring) as well! Funny thing though - I went to upload it and realized I had completely over looked the theme! Great thing with digital, I went back and added the ribbons and bows and resaved!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great wknd!
