I have always loved staring at sunsets,especially at the beach.I did this layout about that passion. I painted using 3 different shades at each side of the photo to make it look like clouds in a sunset sky.The orange/yellow ribbons were perfect for this too.I used word art to do the heading.

Blast from the past.

This is a photo of me at age 16.I always love turquoise and black together, so created this simple layout using those colours.It was for a sketch challenge on Mad about scrapping.I'm really pleased with how it turned out.

Mad about scrapping

I joined in a cyber crop on mad about scrapping last night. They were fun ladies and we played a game,which was a scavenger hunt of scrapbooking techniques and products. It took hours to find them all, but I won a prize, so it was all good.I'm busy now making layouts for the other challenges.

More retreat layouts

I was pleased with all 3 of these but particularly like "flip Flops" . The colour scheme worked really well.The old church one is from a Becky Fleck sketch.
