I took these photo's in May for a contest at the local scrapbook store. But wanted to do these again in digital. Our daughter was not interested in helping me until I said she could wear some of Mommies makeup and one of my skirts with her brothers costume. My Traditional page is cute too! This is such a fun kit and I've used it over and over especially for Halloween.
Kit is from Studio Flergs - Evilicious, and the Font is Elegant

Just finished this one and Love it. This is an old photo of my son in his snow suit. We had a really bad snow when he was a year and a half and this was one of the first days that we could get out. The sidewalks and most of the streets were still uncleared. He had a wonderful time. I probably had him dressed to warm but he lived. Ha!
This is a great kit by Magic World called Winter Frost, the Font is Crystal and Elegant. Click on the link to check out this fun site, http://magi-magicworld.blogspot.com/

Love these photo's of our daughter in her Santa Hat. I laid her on our bed with a white sheet that I hung from the ceiling. I wish I had done this with my son but I didn't. Working a night job at the time and just couldn't manage. This is such a great kit at Water LO Projects. Click link to check out all there beautiful work. http://waterloproject.blogspot.com/
This layout deserved the two pages to stick together so I had a bit of a challenge connecting them. The kids love to play Polar Express on the train down town. This time my son made tickets in advance and then he punched them with my hole punch. He drew on them and put stickers; very cute.

Mom was here for my nephew's graduation and she wanted to have her photo taken in front of this cool mural. This was a fun page because I don't have many of her. I know she's gona love it.

Well here is the latest painting, "A Blustery Day". It is showing from now until Dec. 29Th at the Wilbur B. May Museum at Rancho San Rafael Park. The Sierra Watercolor Society Show is called Around the World in Art. And I got a sneak peek and it's amazing. What a fantastic bunch of artists we have in our group. I will have a hard time voting for my favorite painting. I have three that are begging for my vote. This one isn't a 10 but maybe an 8. My mentor Joyce Burke used to tell us to rate our work and if it's a 10 to stop painting. That's the hardest thing to learn with watercolor. When to put your brush down. I feel it could have used a little more contrast with darks but it was late and I still had to frame it so I said to myself, "it's an 8".

This is also from the Shabby Pickle. Kit by Jofia Devoe, it's beautiful. My daughter and I went to a nearby park to play and collect leaves. She is so photogenic and sometimes a bit of a ham. This one turned out so pretty and was a bit of a challenge.

Excited about this new layout. Just picked up Studio Flerges new kit Sweet Pea at Scrapbook Graphics http://shop.scrapbookgraphics.com/manufacturers.php?manufacturerid=42. Going to have some fun with this kit and love that so many of the elements have shadows and because my program is inadequate I don't have good shadows. Usually I airbrush them on which is very time consuming. Still having trouble uploading my layouts to a Gallery. My images are to large and haven't figured out how to make the info on them smaller. I'll get it eventually.
WOW, you should go to Studio Flerges and see her new kit. It's beautiful. Lots of white and satin and sparkle.
Used this photo from June when we went out to dinner at Chili's. It was a fun evening and we always take a few happy meal toys when we go somewhere nice and the kids are completely entertained. I look at my daughters cute expression and wonder what she was thinking about.
On another note. Still thinking about what to paint for the Wilbur B. May Museum show in November. I think something with fall or winter colors. I have some great snow pictures from Galena Creek.

Vicki from A Work in Progress said I could use her designs for my blog page. She has some really fantastic stuff on her site. I'll have to figure out links as well.
My next art show is with the Sierra Watercolor Society in Nov. and Dec. It is our annual Christmas Party Show. Last year I won Peoples Choice for "Potenstein Germany". I couldn't have been more surprised by that than if my head had been sewn to the carpet. WOW! Guess I better get busy and paint something amazing. Hee!
Well time to go fix a light dinner for the kid's and I. Daddy is working the late shift tonight. This is so exciting...
