Summer Breeze

Good morning all.
I didn't make it to Edinburgh yesterday, hubby went gardening shopping on his own! Hopefully we'll pop up today as I could do with a birthday cake for my Mum who is 80 tomorrow.

Looks like I could be busy again, my second nephew popped the question to his girlfriend this weekend and she said yes so we have another wedding to look forward to - don't know how soon yet!

I wish it were a "Summer Breeze" blowing more like "blowing a hoolie" last night - but we can dream, it was certainly a lot nicer yesterday - I even got some washing hung out!

Another layout for a challenge which requested you to re-do your first layout. Here is my re-do:

Created in Craft Artist using "Dunes" from Daisy Trail. I used Cut Out Studio to crop the main image then copied the result and cropped it again so I could get the shadows around Lora properly.

And this is the original created in My Memories Suite before I found out how to use shadows - or very much else for that matter lol.

Challenges entered:
Get Creative - re-do your 1st layout
Digi Stamps 4 Joy - anything goes
Party Time Tuesdays - anything but a card
The Squirrel and the Fox - inspired by a song/movie (Summer Breeze)

  13. Hi Carol

    Sorry it has taken me so long to get here .. .. I am a rubbish blog buddy at the moment.

    Great layout and brilliant to see how your skills have developed isn't it .. .. though I love both designs.

    Hope your Mum has a wonderful birthday tomorrow and I wonder if there is another wedding on the cards for you to do at some stage in the future?!?!?!?

    Hope you have had a good weekend.

    Love Jules xx

  14. Hi Carol I do admire crafters who design pages for scrapbooks/albums, these are fantastic, the pictures and LO's are superb, brilliant work.

  18. Hi Carol,
    Both layouts are beautiful but however I do like the re-do one {there are times I feel I can do better or add more this and that after I have completed my lo's but never re-do; LOL; so for you to re-do yours amaze me; well done!}. Thank you for playing along with us at Digistamps 4 Joy and we hope to see you again. Good Luck :)

  20. Good Sunny Morning Carol,
    Better weather here today, the wind has dropped thank goodness.
    I love how you have re-done your page. First was good but in my opinion this is much better everything stands out more.
    Congratulations to the happy couple, you will be on the lookout for a "hat"
    Have a Great Day
