Natural Story

James discovered his feet in December and I got a great shot of him getting a taste.  I’ve been wanting to do a page with his picture, but I couldn’t find the right kit.  Then I found ‘Natural Story” by Mel Designs.

I also finally learned how to use a layer mask to adjust an image’s opacity.

Here is the final result.

Project 365

So I am going to attempt this project.  I will take a picture every day and every week I will create a page using the pictures from that week.  I’ve seen this on so many blogs and I think it’s a great idea.  Not only is it a way to keep a record of my family’s life, but it’s also a way to watch how my scrapping improves over the next 52 weeks.  I have no doubt my last page this year will be much better than the one I have made for Week 1.

The kit I used to create this page is called clic kit.  I found it at

Grandma’s Quilt

Every other month, a group of about 100 designers get together and great a huge kit based on a theme and colour palette.  This month, the theme is “Grandma’s Quilt”.  It’s lovely!  Visit the Blog Train Blog to find the list of designers and get creating.

I’ll post a couple of the pages I make with this kit soon.
