My first digital layout Yay!!!

Yay!! I made my first ever digital layout using some freebies available on the internet.

Wow!…….., it took a while for me to overcome the initial fear of using the photo shop.
And now I am loving it.
Maybe I will now do half digi and half traditional layouts.
I still love the traditional way of scrapbooking.
So I will not give that up totally.
Moreover I am still a beginner at digi.
Will take a lot of practice I guess!!!.

I have used SP’s Harvest Spice kit to make this layout.

Thanks for stopping by today.

A bright funky boy’s layout………….

Debscreations has monthly challenges set by 3 challenge chics. No prizes but really awesome challenge to try out. Winners will be picked by the challenge setter. Sometimes there is a RAK.

Here are the details of Vix’s challenge:

Your LO and title must be based around a movie title!
You must
* use only one photo
* use at least 3 different pp
* use as much cardstock as you want
* use no more than 3 embellies!

Here is my take on the challenge.

My title is based on the Movie “pirates of the great salt lakes”
Photo is Sid exploring the salt in a salt lake near our town.
We in fact did bring home some salt.
It was awesome to see salt in so much quantities and also amazing to see plant life growing in the lake in spite of the salinity!!
The base is a cardstock by GCD studios designer card stock. I picked it from my LSS.
Loved the ink blue with a self designed grid.
Other papers I used was from Collage press Jackson Lodge collection–journaling card PP and other one, I think is from Prima Youth collection.
The three embellishment I have used are Kaiser craft star bling, Chipboard stars covered with Green card stock and kaiser craft rub ons. Alphas from Pink Paislee.
White dots by Kindy Glitz’s white.

I love a little funky layout ones a while. Brightens up my day!
Hope you are having a lovely day.
Its HOT here. My DD is down with fever and bad cold.
Poor thing, she talks more when she is down with fever. Delirious!! sometimes!!
Bound indoors until evening. So chances of making another layout are high!!lol!!

Checkout my sketches blog some inspiration.
Have a great weekend.

A Pretty Pink layout!!!!

Hi Everybody,

Today is Friday and my day off but I was still engrossed in household chores!!!
Time just flew by and before I knew it was evening!!!
But I finally had the chance to visit my LSS.
She had some awesome The Little Yellow Bicycle papers.
They were pink valentine’s paper line but it was a lovely pink.
Not baby pink, not flashy pink but a dusky pink.
I was smitten by the color and one particular paper was embossed. I dare not take it!!!
She also had some making Memories die cut papers. Picked up a few papers from her.
Some new stash is always inspiring.
At the same time all my photo from Snapfish arrived. Oo la la!! I sat down to make a layout.
The pink dotted paper is the nice velvety embossed paper. So nice to feel it.
Here is the result.

Papers used are from making Memories diecut paper from Love letter line,
The Little Yellow Bicycle embossed paper and 7 Gypsies.
Flowers are from Prima, Black bling flourishes are from Prima too.
Ribbon from American Craft, Cork Tag from Kmart.
Stamped image is from Bizzy Becs Stamps – Hippy Girl ‘Jewels’.
Tim Holtz’s distress inks and title diecut from my stash.

Here are some closeups:

Have a great day
