Welcome to our first hop of 2012 at Lasting Memories!! I, (Michele) am the FIRST STOP... so welcome!! If you would like to check out all of the details of our hop first, just click HERE to start at Lasting Memories! Please be sure to read through because this week we have a lot going on! We're being sponsored by Digi Darla which is PERFECT since this weeks challenge is "DIGITAL"!!
For my layout today, I used Digi Darla's "TIMMY TURTLE"
Here is what I created... My daughter was very excited and anxious to go outside in the rain to test out her new umbrella and rain boots. When to her surprise, the rain stopped and the sun came out. So Daddy "Made Rain" with the garden hose and she thought that was pretty cool and I thought "How Silly"... so the camera came out. (Me inside from the living room window) :-)
And a Close-up of Mr. Timmy Turtle... I colored him to match my daughter's umbrella and clothing.
And another close-up of embellies and fun papers.
And a final pic... I outlined the cloud, raindrops and alpha letters for more depth.
This is my VERY FIRST stab anything digital other than my photos. If I can do it, YOU can too!! It was very fun!! I also followed the "Inspirational Sketch" from Lasting Memories for my layout this week. You can see the details at the very end of this post.
And... I am also joining the gals at SCRAPFIT for their Workout # 61 "Blank Canvas"... where you must start your layout with a piece of WHITE card stock and see where it takes you.
