I Scrapped!

I actually did some scrapping! WooHOOOO! If you could see the chaos-of-my-office you would be very proud of me! LOL! I am beginning to get things put away, but I'm not used to where I have things AT ALL. And a lot of it is still at my old house. But I HAD to scrap! Thank heavens for kits! I love that I can open up a kit and have a gathering of different supplies that all go together! Call me a kit-aholic, but I LOVE 'EM!!!

This one is using the Noel Mignon Ghost Story Kit.
(Awesome Halloween kit! There is one lonely kit left over there, do you want to give it a good home? LOL! Yes, I'm giving it human characteristics. Heehee! I feel bad for such a fun kit sitting all alone over there!)

I've scrapped this photo of Maryn before, but I just had to do it again, when I realized I hadn't scrapped the smaller photo of her that year with her preschool teacher! :D Have you ever done that? Scrapped a picture more than once because it was such a fun one to do?

Also, I have to let you know that Noel Mignon now has a Message Board!
Yippeee! I love my DT gals over there! They are such a blast to chit-chat with! Come and hang out with us sometime!

This next layout is using the October Scarlet Lime kit. I did this for a challenge at JustCre8.
We had to use an ad slogan somewhere on our layout. I used the Johnson & Johnson "No More Tears" slogan.

I can't wait to get scrapping some more! The biggest challenge facing me right now is editing and printing off my pictures. I print my pictures off at home as I scrap, but my computer isn't all the way set up with the programs I usually use, and all my photo files are on another computer, so I'm struggling with the process of getting pictures printed to work with. Grrrrrr! I'll have it all figured out soon enough and I'll have more to post. :D

My friend Michelle S. from BackPorch Memories
posted on the message board about a photo editing site called PICNIK
and it has really saved my bacon at getting a couple of things printed out. It has a lot of fun features including lots of color-editing-type actions! For example, the photo on my "No More Tears" layout uses the Holga action. It's really fun! You should check it out when you get the chance!

Thank you so much for visiting! And thanks to those of you who take the time to leave me sweet little comments, they totally make my day! ;)

Hugs to you all!

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you for the contest. :) Glad that things with the move are coming along but I understand your frustration with dealing with boxes and missing supplies. I still have scrap stuff put away from my move from the spare bedroom to the basement. Every now and then I search for something and realize it must still be in a box. Oh well...
