ADSR3 Challenges 3&4

This week has been CRAZY! I feel like I have done nothing but scrap (and the laundry, and the dishes, and the cooking, and the cleaning, and piano lessons -ugh!) So I'm very slow in finishing my last two challenges for ADSR. But here they are in all their glory. These were a little tougher than normal. They were way more about me than I would like. Plus I have like NO photos of me. I'm always taking the pictures (Josh can't even figure out how to use the camera!) I took the one of me and Cash (on the red page) by holding the camera out away from me and guessing when it was focused and aimed in the right spot. That's why you can only see half of me and half of him. I like it though. Kinda artsy.
make it all about me
use 1/2 the page for journaling

spill it - could be about anything just needed lots of details
use blending (I had NO idea how to do this - thank you Jessica Sprague!)
1/4 page journaling
1 large photo

I really like both of the LOs. The last page is one that I have had the idea for just sitting in my craft room for like a year! I thought about it ALL the time and felt guilty for not scrapping it. Oh my gravy how I love digi. I have caught up SOOOOOO much!

The last LO is also one that I used the March collab kit "Song For You" from Snap and Scrap. This is the kit you can get for free with the daily downloads on their blog and some more for doing the challenges. Such a cute kit and SO FULL! It's huge. Seriously.

The top LO (the red one - sorry I keep switching back and forth!) is made using the "Rainbow Coated" kit by Kelly Thompson. She has lots of fun boy stuff in her shop at Scrapbookbytes. (Man, I feel like a commercial! But I really wouldn't post about it if I didn't really like it and want you to know about it! I promise.) Well, off to scrap some more. Too many ideas, not enough time!!!!

Wow, those both turned out awesome! I love the blending of your photo and the sweet journaling. I have those same thoughts. Great job!

These are both awesome! I think Cash looks a little bit like Brianne's boys in this last picture!

I love how you made the picture fade into the background in the 2nd layout. I looked on sprague's blog and couldn't find those directions. Do you mind sharing?

I don't think I could explain it in a way that would make any sense to anyone, so, go to Jessica's blog ( and look up Photoshop Friday! 2007 #11. I found it by typing blending photos in the search box. On my photo I also changed it to b&w before I added to my LO and changed the blend mode to pinlight. Hope this helps!

Found it, thanks!
