Round 4 Continued!

The second part of round 4 was to create a heritage kit with specific colors. Once we had the main kit complete, then we were to create an Add-On pack for that kit. Here is what I created!

On to round 4

I made it past the eliminations and I am on to round 4! This layout is for the first part of the round. I used the kit "Willow" that I created in round 2 and 3 with this wonderful photo of my hubby from Christmas 2007. I love that the blue in the kit brings out the blue in his eyes. It was the perfect photos for this layout.

I have to stop and give kudos to everyone that entered the contest. Some of the gals that did not make it to round 4 really did an excellent job with what they created and I was surprised that a few of them were eliminated. Heh! I'm a little surprised that I made it to round 4!

Next, I create a HERITAGE kit. Didn't I hear somewhere that heritage is anything older than 20 years? It's kind of hard to believe that the 70's and 80's are considered heritage!! Hmmm...but that does give one some food for thought! Actually, I guess if you could consider Willow a nice heritage kit as well.

Well, I am open to suggestions. Heritage is NOT one of my strong points when it comes to creating a kit and this round MIGHT have eliminations. Guess I better get cracking! Deadline is December 4th and Thanksgiving is coming up. Do you really think it is going to take me two weeks to come up with a heritage kit? Well......maybe!!

Until next time!

A Pretty Poinsetta!

I stumbled across a photo of a beautiful poinsetta this morning and decided while I was waiting to get the next assignment, I would try my hand at making one. I made one several years ago while messing around with the SNL at DSP, but it had many imperfections. This one does too, but even if I do say so myself, looks pretty darn good!

I am not known for giving anything away on my blog BUT....if you would like to pick up this poinsetta to use in your Christmas Layouts...This link has expired !

Designer Finder Contest - Round 2B

Part B of Round 2 is to make 4 papers...with a specific color scheme. That's not hard to do but my brain is in overdrive! Do I make girl papers or boy papers? Do I keep it neutral or really go with a strong theme? Well, I don't know whats next on the agenda so I decided to trash the theme and just make 4 papers with the colors that go together and could be used for either boy or girl or whatever! So....Here it is...4 Background papers...coming up!

I am not sure what comes next at this point, but I do know that the next round is an elimination round and that has me a little shaky! But, onward I go and whatever happens is what is meant to be!

Desinger Finder Contest - Round 2!

WOW! The talent in this competition is AWESOME! I don't know how the judges are going to ever make a decision on who stays and who goes!

Ok, so here we are at Round two - PART A. Create a layout with the kit you just made. Well, that's not hard at all...lets just hope that I have made my kit in such a way that everything goes with everything else and is actually a usable kit. I mean, the kit isn't any good if you can't make a layout with it! Right?

Here's mine!

This child is one of the most precious people that God could have given to me. She is my everyday SUNSHINE! The Journaling on this layout is oh so true....she is not just my guardian of confidences, she is my guardian angel as well. I would like to think that I might be hers too!

Designer Finder Contest!

Ok...Here's the scoop! When I first started digital scrapbooking, there were two sites that taught me everything that I know and these are the two sites that are nearest and dearest to my heart today, 3Scrapateers and Digital Scrapbook Place.

Well, can you believe my surprise when I found out that DSP was having the first ever Designer Finder Contest! WOW! There was no way that I could pass up this opportunity to see if I could actually design beside some of the most elite designers in the industry! So, here I am, pulling my hair out!! LOL!! Well, it's not quite that bad...yet!

Round one... Create a kit....OK, simple enough! Create a kit without using actions and CU items of anykind.....HEH...not so simple! But here it is!

This kit is dedicated to a wonderful person whom I am very proud to call my best friend, Kimberly Stewart. You can find Kimmi's designs at SBE!

If you would like to follow along and see what some of these awesome gals are creating, you can do so here:

Season of Change

Everything changes and, my friends, I have come to a point where lots of things are changing for me. I will no longer be designing at 3Scrapateers. This change became effective on Saturday, November 8, 2008. There are allot of things that brought about this change but mainly, I decided that it was time for me to move on.

I have signed on to Design for "Scraphead" and will have my store open there in the very near future. You are all invited to meet with me on the boards there, if you so desire, at . I am excited to continue to work with Michelle Powell, Sandra Covert, and Rachael Bullion and am looking forward to getting to know all of the other wonderful Designers that create for Scraphead. So, the question is.....Are you a Scraphead?
