blog hop winner and a few layouts to share

Thanks to everyone who stopped by my blog during the Valentine’s Day blog hop. I appreciate all of the awesome feedback that I received!! I picked up some new followers, and I hope those of you who have newly subscribed will enjoy my projects 🙂

And now for the winner…..I had Miss Sophie (my 3 year old daughter) randomly draw a winner and she chose PHOTOCHIC!
Congratulations, please email me your info and I will send that Smashbook your way!!

And now for a few layouts…I’ve really enjoyed participating in the Workouts at ScrapFit lately. For this workout, the assignment was to use a cluster. I’m not so good at clustering and layering, it’s a challenge for me. For some reason I never feel like it looks right. Knowing this, I kept my cluster rather small 🙂

I used one of my Scarlet Lime kits to put this together, along with a few bits from my stash. I had fun playing with the BeFunky app on my phone to adjust the color and blur the edges of the photo of Sophie running down the path next to the San Antonio River last weekend.

This next layout I did just for me. Not for any challenge or anything in particular. I just really loved this picture of my baby boy 🙂

Have I mentioned how much fun I am having scrapping a boy after so many years of scrapping girls?!!

See you all tomorrow with my Frosted Designs Sketch Along Tuesdays DT project reveal. Oh, and don’t forget later this week Frosted Designs is also hosting the “Love is in the Air” blog hop with some awesome prizes to be given away!

    I totally understand what you mean about clustering and layering. I spend a lot of time moving pieces around when I’m trying to achieve that look but you did an awesome job! Your baby is so precious and growing so fast! I love your choice of papers on this layout and those vintage buttons are the perfect accent.
