These pictures were made during our Labor Day Pinic at a state park nearby. My GS and DD had a blast as you can tell by the pictures.
These pictures were made at a dear friends wedding. I thought the kit was perfect for them.

I did three layouts with this kit. The first one is called Our Cinderella and is of my DD when she was 6 as Little Miss Georgia Forestry Queen. The second on is called Princess and is of my DD at 4 or 5 getting ready to compete in a talent contest. This layout was done as part of Digitals' Sketchy Details Challenge. The last one is called Cinderella's Castle and features my DD this past April standing in front of Cinderella's Castle at Disney World.

This month at Digitals I was assigned to scrap for DeDe Smith. I was so excited as I have loved DeDe's work for a long time. I'm especially a big fan of her new collection Happily Ever AfterZ. I love Disney and these kits go along with the Disney animated movies. Add to that DeDe is having a CT call right now and I'm crossing my fingers that I will get to work with her on a more regular basis. It would be a dream assignment for me but either way, I get to work with an awesome designer this month.
The first kit I scrapped for her was Neverland - needless to say it's one of my favorite. I'm a big kid at heart and idea of never growing up has always intrigued me. Well maybe I would like to be an adult, just stuck in my twenties, with a great body, perfect health, no aches and pains - you get it.
You can find Neverland along with the rest of DeDe's kits at Digitals or at her blog. She also sells her designs at 3Scrappers.com, Divine Digitals, iScrapbook and ScrapWow and in her blog store.

Friday night, I thought I might get to scrap some but my DD came home sick. Fever, pains in chest, coughing, sore throat. I figured the flu or some kind of URI and when she wasn't any better Saturday morning. I loaded this big baby up and carted her off to the walk-in clinic. When we got there, she started throwing up, so they said it was a virus, gave her sometime for nausea and sent her home. Whatever it was, she was fine today, so it must have worked it's way out of her body but by Sunday, I was feeling sick on my stomach, running a fever and had that bluh feeling. So it was a no scrap weekend. My farm on FB has even died. LOL.
Well, I went to work today even through I still feel pretty rough and finally got enough energy to get caught up on the classes I've been taking on photo editing.
So you guys are in for several shares tonight.
This pic is from Day 3, followed by Day 3 Bonus lesson with the addition of some starry brushes. I added some sparkle around the edges and a twinkle in his eyes.
I was so happy with the way this one turned out.
It was the Day 5 bonus project. I took my original Day 5 picture added a clipping mask and some brushes and this is was the end result. I was pretty pleased with how it turned out.
Day 6 was TTV. What's a TTV, I can't explain it as it's a photography tech but the fake TTV textures and overlays are awesome. The project today was to take picture, used a combination of effects learned and add the TTV texture. I took a picture faded out the color by playing with the hue and saturation until I got the look I wanted. I hand painted my DD lips and the flower in a soft light blend mode. I then added the TTV which created a rounded corner frame look. Popped in some wordart and this was the end result.
Day 7 was a test to see how much we had learned and Day 8 was about adding text to pictures. So I grabbed a pic, added a texture and added the type. I think it looks great. original pic above/edited pic below
Now all I've got to do is scrap these pics tomorrow.
