2 more pages

The last couple of days I have finished 2 more pages! Yippeeee!!!!! It feels so good to take the time to scrapbook again.

The first one is of a picture Mom took of Emma. The paper is CTMH and rub-ons are SU (flowers) and Melissa Frances (words-love them!).

Not sure how well you can see the words in the scan but it says "be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind. Dr. Suess".
The second one is of Joe and Emma. The challenge was to alter a photo so I painted a journalling "block" on the picture and lightly painted around the edges. I then used a rub-on (again Melissa Frances, again- LOVE them). I added Swarski (sp?) crystals to the flowers on the rub-ons for a little bling and dimension but I kept it pretty simple and focused on the pic.

Thank you thank you thank you for sharing and having a few minutes to make a post!!! This time of the year seems to be one where we all are too busy to blog. I have found myself not surfing very often because there is nothing new to see. I was very happy to see your pages!!! Love the challenge idea!!!~!~
