Project 365_two new layouts

One of the mb's I'm on is having a crop.  Our challenges are scraplifts and sketches.  These two layouts are from two of the scraplift challenges...

This layout, I just finished and is of our grand-daughter June!  Our daughter {an awesome Mommy!} took this photo after she dressed June up for the ride to take June's brother, Jordan to school.  June is at that age where she's facinated by everything and today it was her pink slippers...

This layout is of our DS when he was 9 months or so, photo was taken at one of the apartments we lived at back then.  The other photos are of him during this year.  He is an amazing man and father!!

Calico Ghost Town LO for my Project 365

 We decided to go to Calico Ghost Town on Labor Day.  We were outside in our greenhouse and could smell all the bbq's around our house cooking hamburgers, so we decided to go on a small trip.  Chose Calico Ghost Town and had In-N-Out for dinner on the way home.. Took our oldest DGS and he had a corn dog at Calico, he was too hungry to wait on In-N-Out.  But he did share french fries with his Poppy and had a sprite soda.

Calico has basically stayed the same, was nice to explore but it was too hot.. TG we took extra water.

I participated in a crop called, Its A Jungle Out There at Scrapadilly.  This is what I came up with for the first challenge, a sketch challenge.

I used a digi kit from AHHH SCRAPS Design Team called, Welcome Papers.

Advertisement Challenge

Last challenge completed, advertisement challenge

Yay!!  I finished all of the challenges at Scrapadilly's,It's A Jungle Out There crop..  We had to do a dbl pager lo and take inspiration from an advertisement that they had posted.  This is what I came up with.

For those that are interested in stamps, you can get the Gel-a-tins Stamps at Scrapadilly's.  Heres the LINK TO GEL-A-TINS

Everything is colored with the paint bucket in pse on my mac to match the photos.  
Brush by Dezignus, Floral-Brushes
Word art, I used Words Imagined

Rough Around The Edges Challenge

For this challenge we had to distress the edges, so I did that on the background paper.

I used some filters in pse on my mac.  {chalk/charcoal and another that I can't remember.  also changed the color}
I used a digital stamp from Digital Designers.
Sorry, can't remember what grunge mask I used.

Challenge 8

For this challenge, we're supposed to scrap about an animal.  {real or imagined, etc.}  I decided to create a lo about our female boxer, Pebbles.

Challenge 10, Build A Foundation

I skipped a couple challenges to do this one.  We had to build a foundation by using 3 different pattern paper pennants.  Here's what I came up with.

Kit/Digital-Crea Collab, Bisous Calinoce, Prt 1

Banner Challenge

For this challenge {#7}, which is called Swinging Through The Vines-we had to use a banner. 

The kit I used is from One Story Down, Under The Boardwalk.
This is a challenge that one of our mb members set up on her own and has now become part of the crop challenge.  Part of her challenge is to use your old stash and if your doing digi, an old kit.  I used an older Weeds & Wildflowers kit for my lo.

Our youngest DGS playing with his Great Grandpa, G.G {my Dadum's}.

Scrapadilly's Bad Photo Challenge

So, we're supposed to create a lo using a bad picture {too dark, blurry, etc.}  I chose this photo just because my skin tone is so red, other than that I really like this photo.

Heres the photo for the color challenge. 

And heres my lo using greens and blue/turquiose.  A few photos from our garden this year...Sweet potato, cabbage and watermelon.

LO for challenge 10 at Scrapadilly

The challenge was to do a lo of a first special outfit.  Since Baby June is still in Mommy's tummy, I decided to use photos of her first outfits and her first cake that Mommy made for her...

Here's the lo I did for the Baby's First Challenge at Scrapadilly's, Oh Baby Crop.  I don't have any grandchildren under the age of 2 right now so I used a first for our youngest DGS.  {our DD is expecting a baby girl in the beginning of August}


Kaleb with his fishing pole that Poppy & Mema Martin bought him.  Of course we had to get the “Cars” fishing pole since its his favorite movie and he just happens to love anything with tires on it.. Or “ires”, which is what Kaleb calls them.  The “ishing pole” as Kaleb calls it, even has a “ire” instead of a fish.  So cute.          
Here he is doing his first water bowl fishing.  Every time he comes to visit, he tells Poppy {Pop} that he wants his “ishing pole” and goes over to the water bowl and starts fishing.  He even has a matcing pair of sunglasses and a tackle box that he calls, “Mac”.

I used the background of the template for my background paper but I did darken it some.

Two digi lo's to add to my P365

Kit by Traci Reed at Sweet Shoppe Designs

This year is really slow for me in regards to creating digi lo's for P365.  I just haven't had the mojo to create.  Even finding it hard to create any traditional lo's this year.  Sigh!

How's everyone else doing on their P365??

I've stalled on my P365

I just haven't been in the mood to do any digi lo's.  Plus my camera has been acting all wonky, so I haven't been taking photos every day.  I have to send it in for repairs, only 3 months old too.  So for now, I've been doing some traditional lo's which are on my Scrapping Is My Passion Blog..  So, thats where you'll find any new posts that may have photos of my lo's.

No lo's created yet

I'm behind on my p365 and have no idea when and if I'll start.  I was so surprised I finished my 2011 p365 and might not do the one for this year.  Haven't decided!

Waiting for my new camera

Right now I haven't taken any photos as I'm waiting for my new camera to arrive.  My expensive camera broke and I can't afford to get it fixed, so I bought an inexpensive point and shoot.  Its a samsung PL120, 14.2 mp digital camera.  I'm excited about the dual view windows.  I'll now be able to take photos of myself and my hubby and be able to line us up correctly.  It has some other nice features so I hope the camera is what I'm looking for and will work well for all the scrapbooking photos I take.  As soon as I get my camera, which should be in the next 2 days-I'll start my P365 minus a few days..

Whoooo Hooooo!  My camera came today!  I've been checking it out and will be now taking photos for my P365 starting tomorrow...  So excited!
