Moon Over Crane

This is one of my favorites from the photowalk. I love that you can still see the moon up in the left hand corner.

Scott Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk

Yesterday, I had a great time participating in the (hopefully first annual) Scott Kelby/Photoshop User Photowalk. I walked the 1.2 mile route taking pictures of landmarks, architecture, and cool things. This is just one of my photos.

My newest layout for the Week 2 Challenge at TallyScrappers.

This is for the Olympic challenge. I had to use monochromatic blues, overlays, and there had to be an element that looked like swim cap material/latex (the title).

I used the following supplies for the challenge:

"Watercolor Solids 1" by Andrea Burns
"Watercolor Solids 2" by Andrea Burns
"Watercolor Stripes" by Andrea Burns
"Glitter Brackets" by Andrea Burns
"Coconut Tree" by Amanda Heimann (the vinyl letters - which I then colored and used the Sponge filter on in Photoshop to look like swim cap material)
"Birthday Boy" by Andrea Burns (ribbon, stitching)
"Artistic: Journal 1" by Fee Jardine (brush to do paint journaling boxes)
"Shabby Mommy" by Shabby Princess (white sanded overlay)
"Garden Gems" by Andrea Burns (gem flower)
"Curled Flowers" by Andrea Burns

A layout I did with more pictures from this summer's birthday party for Miss K. This kit is perfect for bright and colorful summer photos! I used Andrea Burns' "Lulu" kit at The Digi Chick.
