Just A Few More Before I Leave Town

Of course, it figures! As soon as I think I am caught up, more challenges popped into my Reader-LOL! I really enjoyed these too!
This one if for Making Lemonade. This challenge blog helps us use those imperfect photos. This one was to use a blurry picture and incorporate the reason it is blurry into our layout. My reason is pretty obvious, these 2 were flying by at what seemed to be light speed! lol

I used Bazzill cs, Bo Bunny paper, Walmart chipboard letters, Bazzill chipboard which I inked and dotted with Stickles, and brads. Pretty simple. I also got to play with photoshop and learn just a little bit more about it. I had accidentally used a date/time stamp and was stuck with the date on the photo. I crudely used the paint brush tool and colored over the yellow stamp. I even figured out how to make the image smaller and print it on a 4x6 at Costco!.
This is for Method Playground. We were supposed to make an element by repeating the design of our patterned paper. I used some American Crafts scraps and used the backs to re-create the pattern on the paper-I just free-handed it. I also used American Crafts thickers. Hmmm, maybe I should've added something else to this layout! lol No, I don't have stock in American Crafts either.

I hope I haven't overdone it with all the challenges. This will be my last post until I come back on Sunday, which I should have TONS of pics to share. Have a great holiday weekend!

OH yeah, I am gearing up for a BIG announcement, I will share that when I get back! I would love to hear what you think is "my style" of scrapbooking!!

WAAAAAY too cool that you were able to use those amusement park photos (which naturally ALWAYS come out blurry, don't they?) love this layout! Thanks for playing!!!
