I had a comment from EdnaB on my Tiger Tyler layout which reminded me that I haven't shown you any of my early layouts of Tyler. This wonderful little boy who is now a happy, noisy almost 4 year old was born 12 weeks early and only weighed 780gm (1lb 10oz). He was a determined little fighter and left the hospital 11 weeks later weighing 4lbs (1.8 kilos).
I will let the layouts speak for themselves.
Well, I think that is about all for today. Show you some more tomorrow.
I have been working again with the Retro Summer kit by Country Liv's Graphics and made a layout using a photo of Tyler when he had his face painted at a Church Bazaar in the Summer. I also used a wordart by TLC. Here is the link to her blog.
Doesn't he look so cute?
UPDATE: Here are the links to download my contribution to the September 2012 Paint the Barn Challenge:
Don't forget to go to Liv's Blog and pick up these goodies. Liv also has other wonderful freebies which you can pick up on her Blog. While you are there you should subscribe to her Newsletter as she often gives away freebies to her subscribers.
Liv also has a Facebook fan page. Why not visit her page and 'like' her, I hear she is giving away freebies to her 'likers'.
Here is my layout using photos of my grandson Tyler when he was quite small. He is really enjoying himself.
The necklace on the layout is not
actually in the kit. I wanted to join the two photo frames together so I made
the necklace from the pink necklace string in the kit and one of the paper
posies. I also layered a bow on top of one of the buttons.
I'll be back soon with the preview of my new Paint the Barn kit and further information about how you can download it..
I found this lovely smile on my friend Suruha's Blog.
Suruha and her adorably funny friend EdnaB are giving away a set of CU freebies which they are calling 'Designer Stash 001'. They are posting parts to this wonderful Stash on their blogs each Monday for three weeks and are hoping to be able to give away a new Stash every three months.
Here are the previews of Designer Stash 001.
They are really generous, aren't they?
I have been experimenting with one of the overlays in the free download from Edna and have come up with a misty green paper which I think is nice. I selected different areas of the original and recoloured in various shades of green and then used the Virtual Painter in Paintshop Pro.
I will have to experiment a bit more and see what else I can come up with.
You need to go to the forum (above) to get the links for my
contribution. I hope you will register and enjoy yourself in the forum at Moo Two and perhaps enter a challenge or two. You will find the links to the store, forum and
These photos were taken when Susan and Ian swam with Dolphins on their honeymoon trip to Florida in July this year.
I have a new collaboration to work with from Moo Two Designs. It is called Level Up and is available in the store here. The collaboration is all about games and includes video games such as Pacman and car racing and fantasy games; as well as the more traditional types of games such as draughts, dominos and card games. Here is a preview of the fantasy part of the collaboration which was created by Panda Bear Designs.
I hope to have a few layouts to share with you shortly.
