  1. I haven't been on much the past couple of days; we had a fire burning just a few miles from us, near my father's house.  They were on the edge of the evacuation zone.  Still in level 2 evac (prepare to leave at a moment's notice), but not 3.  I think it's mostly contained now.

      Oh no, how scary is that, do take care.

      That sounds really scary! Take care!

      Goodness. We have people leaving their homes due to floods here, but never fires. Scary. Scary.

  2. Yes, this is gorgeous! The soft blue papers behind the photo, along with the simpler thin photo border, really allow her cute little face to not be overwhelmed. Love the repeat photo blended in the background, and the red embellishments to match her shirt.
  3. Here is the original layout I recreated - this was the first time I had tried using Scrap Simple products. For the new layout I decided to go with an entire, dedicated Easter collection. Here is the redo: Easter Egg Scramble
  4. Hmmmm, I guess you can't put a link up top. The original layout is HERE
  5. I used OAWA A Sweet Eggscape Collection for the new version of the layout. The original layout is HERE
  6. You guys are doing great, I absolutely love seeing the changes between the old and new layouts. It's really interesting to see how everyone has improved and/or changed in their scrapping styles! And I'm off to try to get my own done, finally found a little time to sit and scrap.
  7. And you posted the original in 2007!!! This is beautiful, I love the stamped berries and leaves with the clusters overlaid, and the lifted frame. I also really like how you treated the journaling on this version.
  8. I like both layouts, but I agree, there are many things about this one I do like better. I like how you can see more of you (this is you, right?) in the photo, and the placement of the clusters is gorgeous. Love the little elf taking a photo, too.
  9. Such a cute photo! Not sure what this LO looked like before, but this one turned out great!
  10. Beautiful layout, love the sepia tone, and then your small beach-y clusters with the teal are perfect!

    Wow, gorgeous! I liked the old layout just fine, but this is beautiful!
  12. Oh yes, I really like the softer blue behind her photo, and the blending with the pops of color. Nice job!
  13. If you've been scrapping for a little while, you've most likely picked up a few skills along the way, and/or established a particular style that you like. If you're like me, you look back on your early layouts and cringe a little, knowing you could do those photos more justice if you scrapped them with the skills you have now. This week, you get a redo - go back to your earliest layouts, find one you'd like to re-scrap, then go for it! Once your layout is complete, post it in the Tuesday Newsletter Challenge Gallery, then come back to this thread and leave a link to your layout. If you
  14. What a beautiful layout. I love the black and white photo coupled with the poem, your cluster, and the colored triangles of solid paper over the flowered background. Really pretty!
  15. I love how you added to the bubbles in the photo - hard to tell which are embellishments! Love your clusters and color palette.
  16. Love your type path, and your blended red and blue background with the photo. Fun climbing photos, too!
  17. Gorgeous photos! I love the paper squares and rectangles and your clusters.
  18. What a cutie! I remember my younger one being afraid of the moving water and sand like this, but my older one loved it - at the age of 1, anyway. I love the embellishments you used, they look like late summer outdoors fun.
  19. So cute! Love your layered papers and clear alpha.
  20. Colorful balloons, love the photos! That cut-out paper frame is awesome, too, love the stamped colors and texture on it.
  21. Amazing layout, there's so much to see, I just keep looking. Love the background sketched variation of the main photo, and all of the blended, painted elements, with the bright green leaves and paint popping out.

    What a gorgeous layout! I love the black and yellow against the aged background, just beautiful!
  23. Ha ha, he looks like the water is a little cold! Gorgeous yellow palette, and I love the blended paint in the background.
  24. Beautiful blending of your photo into the background, with the embossing at the bottom. Gorgeous photos, and I love the pops of yellow in the flower and bird.
  25. I love that messy alpha, and the bold mesh over the blended photo. Also how the mesh is mirrored in the blue stamp at the top of the page. Really striking!
