Scrapbook Challenge- Feb. 21-28!

Well, this was fun! Not only was I able to join the challenge by using flowers, I scrapped my 50th birthday celebration. And it was a celebration! And it's still going on. Tonight we're going out with my mom and family for a special dinner at the Lake Elmo Inn.
I thought it was absolutely hilarious how much like the 60s/70s I still looked like with my flower lei and beads and whatnot!
Another thing that makes this layout special is that it's my first attempt at an actual GIMP layout. Wow! I had no idea how much fun that would be. Yeah, my family's in trouble now.....they may never see the whites of these old-lady eyes ever again!

Well, off to party.

Scrapbook Challenge!! Feb. 14-21!!!

How's this for FUN! More MULTI-COLOR than pink or red and it's a card, not a page, but it's birthday card for my hubby......shhhhhh, don't tell 'im. He just loves anything that flies and I was playing with GIMP................again!!! So, I cut out all these adorable hot air balloons and I especially like the one in the middle with "its" tongue out. The inside's gonna say something like "you're not getting older, you're getting.......................well, not younger..........hmmmmm" I'm sucha smarta$$, ain't I?!?!?! Well, that's it. I know I'll probably get something else done this week, but just in case time flies away from me.
Love and Blessings.

Scrapbook Challenge- Feb. 7-14!

This would be under the "MAKES ME HAPPY" category! This makes me very, very happy. Our JAZZ girls went to MN State Competition yesterday. They were AMAZING! Truly, truly amazing. (And looky-there, I actually used seven pix on this one!!)

These pix are from Sections finals a week ago. Us boosters were asked to make up some quick posters to decorate the bus for their ride downtown. Well, you know me.....digi-novice, but eager to try. I THREW together some very fast, less-than-perfect, but really fun and full-of-love-and-encouragement mini scrap pages. These are only two, but the girls seemed genuinely, pleasantly surprised.
Unfortunately, there were other teams who the judges felt were more amazing than our Lake-Liners, (how silly of them!) But the girls had a blast and we have great pix and now I'm gonna go back and play with them and make some more silhouettes and wordart and OMG! Ladies, I told you I found GIMP. I may never be the same......hehehe.......
Love and Blessings.
