More challenges...

The past few weeks have been a challenge to say the least, foremost being that my home computer needs some TLC and between the mouse freezing and lack of free time, I have barely spent time on it. Regarding the ADSR challenges #3 and #4, and especially 4, I found them to be fun, but then again, I am a big fan of Altered Art. A lot of scrappers tend to find ATC's to be out of their comfort zone. For my first half of #4, I found this precious photo of my daughter taken just a split second before bursting into laughter. When she pouted, I would always say "Don't you DARE laugh...I mean it" and of course she would. Actually, I still say it to her.

The other portion required us to scrap our team partner. I really had fun with this one.

The Amazing Digital Scrapbooking Race is on!

I completed my first two assignments for this years race. Two things you should know...I don't know WHAT I was thinking when I took it on again this year, what with opening a new business and working 10 hr days and weekends...BUT I am glad I did it anyway. I need to have time to breakaway from it if even for a hour at a time. The other thing is I am so happy to have Bec, YES THAT BEC, as my partner. Her Layouts are knocking off socks all over the world. Miss Rebecca also made us the cutest team blinkee.

Here is a look at what I (literally) threw together for week #1
I should have added "gorgeous" and Meryl Streep lookalike...tee hee. I made the background out of a bunch of textures and cut it out like a window. Certainly not professional grade, but it worked.
This one allowed me to use some of my older photos of Toot that are pretty low resolution. It's amazing at how much she has grown since these were taken.
