harry night

I had a lot of fun making this one, since it explains one of my over the top nerdy great passions. :)  Lasting Memories challenge this week is all about the movies, and since we made it an "event" to see Harry Potter last year, it was a good time to use my pictures! :)  Also Sketches Creatively Yours, has a wonderful sketch for their challenge, I changed it a bit, but utilized their "idea" format.  Thanks for all the inspiration. :) Here is my layout and SCY sketch. :)

Giving flowers :)

I am honored, that I was asked to be a guest designer for Childs Play Challenge!!! WOW.... their theme is The Giving Tree book (what a wonderful child's story)....
My page is about foxglove flowers...they are gorgeous here in Oregon. I feel every year...that, they are a "gift" after all the heavy rains, spring brings us here--we are ready for some bright beauty. :)  I have taken roughly a million shots of them, and none ever due justice to how lovely these flowers are.... So with all that said here is my a layout, and thanks again to Childs Play, for asking me to be a GD....for their blog. :)

I would also like to enter my layout in the challenge at Graphicats because I used their wonderful sketch to complete and compliment :) my layout!

river fun

Lasting Memories, has a great challenge this week (DT lift)...and I lifted from DT member, Marie.  I loved the simplicity of her lovely page, and all the pictures, and her use of puffy alpha's.  I am always looking for ways to use more pics on a layout.  This one was perfect...I used 10 pictures (whew hoo)...Thanks Marie for the inspiration. :)
Here is my take, and Marie's layout as well
