Well, I’m going to just have to accept that I am a sporadic blogger.  Try though I may, I never seem to get here to post all of the cool things I’m making.

However, here is a print that I made for my Son-in-law’s birthday.  The footprint is Graces, and is the actual size.  We printed her foot on a canvas, then I scanned it and entered it in Photoshop to manipulate it.  Love the texture the canvas brought to the print!  The background is a photo of one of his fields.  I applied a filter and reduced the opacity so that it wouldn’t overpower the tractor.  At the top of the layout, I placed a photo of Grace with her painted foot, and 3 photos of her enjoying farm life.

The layout, which is 8×8 inches, is going in a Scrapbook Page Holder that I got from Michael’s.  I just love this easel type holder that sits on a counter or bookshelf.  It is not only great for layouts, but for recipes!  I’m also thinking of having one as a calendar.Image


New Layout

I’m back with a quick post to show you my newest layout that I made for the Changing Ivy Challenge at Ivy Scraps.  I used the template provided by Designs by Gloria, and my kit, Cranberry Compote, and my daughter’s photos.  I just love this layout–ahhh, to be so carefree!

I thought about naming this “Little House on the Prairie”–doesn’t it remind you of the scenes at the beginning of the show?

Ivy Scraps has so many fun challenges!  Not only can you get some scrapping done, but many include freebies, and you can earn a free kit each month!  Can’t go wrong there!

I have a lot of things that I want to post about, but for right now, this is all I have time for.  I invite everyone to visit Ivy Scraps–I’m pretty sure it’s the friendliest site on the web!  Until next time…
