  1. Eagle River Varsity football opened their football season against North Pole, giving our family an opportunity to visit the holiday haven in the off season. We got a kick out of the sign outside of the local welding shop--I guess we didn't expect Santa's workshop to be quite so industrial looking. I had fun with this layout, but sticking with just one collection was a real challenge for me. I will admit I was struggling with it a bit--getting the photos and the collection to work well together. Fortunately I found my answers in a blog article posted yesterday: Layout Design Process: Brandy Murry. The process she described really resonated with my process for this layout, and her tip about recoloring the photos was the final "ah-ha!" for me. While we had enjoyed a beautiful bluebird day for our visit to North Pole, the cerulean sky wasn't playing well with the rest of the layout. I picked out the brilliant red that I wanted to keep from the photos, copied that to new layers, and photo tinted the rest with a pleasing green. By adjusting the lighting and opacity of the tinted layer, I was able to achieve a result that I liked. Now my Santa photo is back on the nice list!

  2. This layout features 2 circles, 1 box, 4 photos, and a zero as an "o" in "BoX" Our three kitty girls were more than happy to help us unwrap our Christmas gifts--thoroughly enjoying the trimmings and trappings of the occasion.

  3. The Thursday Recipe for Success series inspired me to use multiple patterned background papers to make the boys' names for our Christmas pages--fun!

  4. What a lovely idea to preserve treasured memories while they are still fresh in the mind! I was inspired to scrap my son's 13th birthday, an occasion truly worthy of remembrance. I used AMC_DynamicBrush_Sprinkles as my brush for this layout.
