Film, film, oh sweet film. (Film Mama blog circle)

I finally was able to get a few scans back from my vacations this summer.  I cannot explain to you just how much I love film...In truth, there are a lot of images here that are not perfect.  Maybe even all of them but to me they are priceless memories.  I can see everything in these, feel the air around me, smell the trees, the river, the campfire.  These are things that I will be less likely to forget because instead of just snapping away, I took my time.  Focused in on the moment and not just the photo.  That, to me, is more precious than gold.

These are just a few of the photos from some of the places we were this summer.

This is only half of our trips this summer.  I cannot wait to get the rest of the rolls developed so I can re-live the summer all over again.

Now that you have made it all the way through my post, please continue on to Tricia Burrough. I am sure she has something magical for you.

Grain de Sable (Grain of Sand) Layouts for Aline Design

I was recently asked to guest for Aline Design of My Scrap Art Digital and I just couldn't say no.  Her designs are just fantastic! 
 These are the first 2 pages I have made for her with her new kit, Grain of Sand.

Have a lovely day!!!

The Lilypad July BYOC

I have been creating for different designers at The Lilypad for years now and I always love the BYOC kits.  This time I have two pages.  One for Paislee Press and another for Little Butterfly Wings.  Same color pallet with such different kits.  Love it.

The shadow on the photo is not a template.  I do that by hand every time I make a page.  
Would anyone be interested in a little tutorial on how to make a fun shadow for your papers?
