Some News

Before I get to the news, I have another challenge layout to share, this one is for Making Lemonade. This challenge blog is cool in that it helps us use those not-so-perfect shots! This particular challenge is to take a photo that has flaws, and fix it by making it black and white.
While I absolutely love this photo, and all the others, that tigardlilly took of me, the background can be a little distracting from the focal point, and my skin is so unbalanced.
I used Basic Grey Sultry, K&I Memories Lace Cardstock, Target Dollar Spot chipboard letters, Prima flowers, other unknown flowers, misc buttons, brad-lets (unknown), and printed journaling.
Here is a close up of my journaling.
Now for some news.....
Need I say more???

Now on to how much I love that LO! The colors are fab and the way you used the lace paper to mimic the pp is great! Another great LO in the books!

Missed you at the crop today. Are you going to try and do any of the challenges? Most are really simple. Almost too simple!
