P365, Week 20

Here is my page for week 20.  When I was making this page, I remembered why I had fallen behind in this project.  My laptop monitor had been acting crazy for a while, freezing and going black more and more.  Then during week 20, Brian got me a new monitor.  It fixed the problem, thank goodness!

P365, Week 19

Well, my plan was to catch up on a few things this week.  I ran out of time, but I did manage to do a couple of pages for my P365 project.  Here is week 19.

Perfectly Pretty

I recently downloaded a free kit call “I Feel Pretty” by Ange Designs.  I was very excited to use it for a couple of pictures I have of Leah.  I started one page a couple of days ago, but wasn’t able to finish it.  When I came back to it today, I ended up changing the picture, rearranging the layout, and choosing papers from a different kit that I love.  So this page doesn’t look at all like I had originally planned, but I still think it’s “perfectly pretty”.

P365, Week 18

My goal this week is to catch up on my weekly P365 pages and finish a few other pages that I’ve started over the last couple of weeks.  Given that it’s already Wednesday night, this may be a bit ambitious, but anything is possible.

Here is my page for Week 18, the first week of May.  Time flies!  I can’t believe this month is already almost over.

Leah’s Worms and a Freebie

Ever since Leah met her imaginary worm friend, Sammy, she has developed a certain tolerance for real worms and a few other non-flying insects.  When we found worms in our backyard a few weeks ago, she was very excited.  She collected them all (I think there were 5) in a bucket and brought them out front to to live with Sammy.  She had no trouble picking them up, petting them, moving them around.  She insisted I take some close-up pictures of the worms, which I did.  Unfortunately, those photos give me the creeps, so I didn’t use any of them for this layout.

Template by me

The template I used above was the very first template I made.  I posted it here, but at that time, I didn’t know how to share it.  Now I do, so I’m offering it to you as a freebie.  I hope you like it!

My Little Puppy

This is my first attempt at cutting out an image from a paper.  I’ve seen a lot of pages lately that have embellishments or text that has been cut-out of the paper and it looks really neat.  The “Boy”s in the title are cut out of the green paper.  I’m positive there is an easier way to do this using GIMP than the way I did it.  Once I figure it out, I will share the steps here for anyone else who uses GIMP (and as a reminder for myself).
