Noel Mignon Friendship Challenge

I am so glad that my daughter found such a cute new friend here in our new neighborhood. I definitely had to use these pictures of the two of them for the current Noel Mignon Friendship Challenge! Everything here is from the juicy, Rise and Shine Kit.

When I have a lot of pictures like this, I like to use PhotoShop Elements to create an Album Page. It allows me to choose a border for the photos and then I just plug in the pictures I want to use. It crops them for me so they all look nice and neat. I only had 8 photos for the 9-photo template, so I cut out the center square, placed a piece of patterned paper behind it and then embellished it. I love how easy it was to put this page together.

I took Virginia Tillery's class on the message board last week and it was fantastic!!! The Design Workbook we created is definitely something I will go to again and again. Here is my Design Workbook I created using the past Noel Mignon Blue Skies kit.

I also have a couple of toots to share with you that involve pages I made using Noel Mignon Kits. :D :D :D

First, I got published in BHG Scrapbooks, Etc. magazine in the Hidden Journaling Article of the July 2009 issue. :D :D :D This is sooooo EXCITING for me!!! Here's a picture of the layout I created using the Lovely Day kit!

Second, I was published in the online magazine, ScrapStreet.com. The page I made for this one is using the Penny Arcade kit. You can see it HERE.

Thanks for letting me share and thanks for coming by!
