Crop Addict's April Manufacturer Challenge





This month Crop Addict's manufacturer challenge is using Dream Street Papers. You can find the challenge here...Debbie hasn't posted it yet but when she does, it'll have Dream Street in the name. While you are over there, check out the other challenges as well. We have monthly and weekly challenges and Debbie is very generous with the prizes.

These are the projects I did this month with Dream Street's Forever Family papers.

Another digi layout and another sketch

No...I'm not going all-digital but it kinda feels like it, huh?? I can't give up my paper and glue but I like the fact that I can catch up on some of my scrapping by using digital too. Plus, I've always like playing on the computer so I guess that goes with the logic side of my brain while paper and glue goes with my artsy side. I started working on both of these the other night at my friend Liz's house. She lets us come over and work on whatever we want to or just come and have some adult conversation for awhile. I took my laptop so I could work and talk at the same time. I was working away too and then all of a sudden my battery ran out. Ok so it wasn't all of a sudden but I wasn't paying attention to my battery level until there wasn't a battery level. And of course I hadn't saved anything! But Dell techies being the good guys they are built in a fail-safe that saves your work to the hard drive in case it's users aren't paying attention. So after a little bit of panicking and rushing to plug my computer in, I was able to find my stuff and save it. This layout is using a kit by Holly McCaig for www.scrapwow.com called Summer Garden.

Sketches

Well, today was a PMS day (sorry if that's too much information!) so I didn't really feel like doing much. I started playing around with Photoshop Elements and made some sketches. I'm posting them here for you to use if you want. Hope you like them!! If you use one, post a link to your layout in the comments...I'd love to see what you do with them!
