52 Week Photo Project - Week 29: Water Fun

My kids have spent the week with their Grammy and I have spent the week scrapbooking. Win Win! I love looking at photos of my kids. It is crazy how much they change and grow every year. This picture was taken at our local splash pad - I must go place during the heat of the summer. Mikele my fearless child gets right in the fun. Love that about her!

52 Week Photo Project - Week 28: Favorite Place in Town

This summer we have been camping A LOT!!! We bought a trailer and have been getting the most out of it. Over the 4th we went up to the Willow Flats area (Just an hour north of our home). Technically this isn't in town but it is my favorite place to be and my home is wherever my trailer is parked!

Where is your favorite place to be? Add a link to your picture below.

Next week's theme is Water Fun!

Studio J - Love it even more!

  There have been some great features added to Studio J and I wanted to share what I have been working on. I am happy to announce that I am very close to having 2009 scraped and in the albums thanks in large part to Studio J. I love how fast it is to create gorgeous layouts and that I can play around with the colors until I get it just right. These layouts look great next to my classic layouts. This first layout is probably one of my favorite from my most recent order. I love the color combination that I ended up with. I tried a few different colors before deciding on the two shade of green - Topiary and pear.

On this layout I had a few more pictures than the original design had. One of the most exciting new features in Studio J is that you can add photo wells!!! You can also move and resize existing photo wells!! It has really opened up the possibilities. You can find the feature in the photo and text tab on the left hand menu.

On the Thanksgiving 2009 layout and the Santa's Elves layout I want to point out the title. I created the drop shadow look but layering the title three times in three different colors. The bottom layer is black and using the arrow keys I moved it down and to the right a few points. The middle layer is white and moved up and to the left a few points. The top layer is in the color that coordinates with the layout and left in the center. Doesn't it make my title really pop! I just can't say enough good things about Studio J. You can try it out for free and the only thing you pay for is to have your layouts printed by CTMH or you can purchase the jpg files of your layouts and have them printed by a third party. If you would like more information or a one on one training session drop me a line or email. Log on to Studio J through my website. You can also check out more Studio J layouts here on my blog or in the Studio J art gallery.

52 Week Photo Project - Week 27: Fireworks

Happy Birthday America!!! I hope you had a fabulous 4th of July. We sure had a great weekend. Last minute we decided to go watch the fireworks at Romney Stadium on the 3rd so I didn't have my nice camera and just snapped some pictures with my iphone. I was glad we went. We sat with some friends in a fabulous spot and had a great view of the show. How did you spend your 4th and did you get some great firework pictures? Share below!  Next week's theme is "Favorite Place in your Town."
