01/12/13 - City Crafters Challenge

Hi there!
This is a rare occurence...
 me blogging on a Saturday.
But I wanted to share a page I created for the current challenge over at the City Crafter's blog.

The challenge was to create a page w/  book paper on it.
I discovered the challenge right when I was planning on creating a layout of my daughter and her kitty reading together.
Perfect timing!

Here is what I came up with:

"This Book Belongs To: Madi and Panini"
Journaling: "Panini does not like to cuddle but on this day she seemed to make an
exception joining Madison while she completed her reading homework.
I love these pictures! October 13th, 2012"

(Sorry, I know it's not the greatest pic but because of the bulky elements of the layout I couldn't scan it and for some reason I can never seem to get a great pic when I use my camera! If anybody has any tips I invite you to share them w/ me.)

This layout was also inspired by a challenge over at called the "5 Ingredients + Yours". The challenge requires the use of 5 different items, or ingredients, and then you can add what ever else you want. Here's a list of the 5 required "ingredients":
1. Ticket(s)
2. Red
3. Something angled
4. Photo corner(s)
5. Typed journaling

The hardest part of the challenge for me was the typed journaling because I always hand write mine.

BTW - this is my 8th layout of the month.
Only 2 more to go to meet my monthly quota!


  1. I love love love love your lo!!! Those photos are ADORABLE and loveeeeeeeeeeee the colors!!!

    As for pics of lo's -- I take mine outside in the natural light (in the shade) -- and then I edit them in Picasa which is a free photo storing/editing site through Google (I just googled Picasa to find it) -- I use Crop, Straighten, I'm Feeling Lucky, Saturated and Sharpen -- there are other things to use, but I don't use them for the layouts I am working with :)

  2. Well that is to cute!!!!! Our cat, Sammy, would not sit still that long. I think she has a foot fetish too....wonder what that says about us!!!??? LOL!!
