Let’s have some fun and share our creativity.
For this challenge, participants will be paired in the order of their posting. Poster 1 (after this post) will be paired with Poster 2, Poster 3 will be paired with Poster 4, and so on. You can post your name NOW even before the pairs are created as they will come as you post.
Once you have your “teammate”, you will exchange ONE photo each and the other person will create a layout from it. If the image is 1000 pixels of less, you can post them in the forum. If they are larger than that, you can exchange emails through the messaging system so you can send the files.
Once the layout has been created, a 600-pixel version can be posted in the forum, and the original full-size version can be sent back to the teammate.
Are you up to this challenge?May 17, 2020 at 9:12 pm #42942

So Royanne and Shirley are now partnered. Connect with each other, sharing ONE photo (or more than one for a single layout) with the other with other meaningful information about it, and then, surprise your partner with a beautiful page.May 18, 2020 at 4:53 pm #42982
Hi Royanne, here is my photo. The last train leaving Alexandra ( my home town) New Zealand not sure of the date. Probably late 70’s early 80’s.May 19, 2020 at 12:20 am #43003
I am up for it again as it was fun last time … now who shall join me, ;DMay 19, 2020 at 9:34 pm #43044May 20, 2020 at 10:06 pm #43080
Hi Shirley, I tried to make it looks rustic. I used different layer styles luminance and burn. I looked up on the internet to get a bit of information. I hope I got it right. I enjoyed working on it. I hope you like it.May 21, 2020 at 1:53 am #43093
Thanks Royanne that’s awesome and I see I worked out the timeframe pretty good. Quite dark to read but great information, also very authentic as you say, and the photo is so beautifully highlighted. The goods train used to pass by our back section about 12.30 am every night and for a certain time in my life I was always awake using my nebuliser for my asthma so I thought back to that time. I am late with yours because I have had issues with ny psp. Problem solved now so I can make a start. I love your garden where do you live?May 21, 2020 at 2:03 pm #43109
Hi Shirley, yes I agree the text is dark….. should have maybe tried a more rusty colour. I live in rural Alberta, Canada . We are about 1 hour east of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Our garden season here is short lived I would like it to last a couple of months longer. My flowers are starting to come and really do not shine until late June. I have some early bloomers and late bloomers but the majority of flowers are in late June / July. Have a great day.May 21, 2020 at 7:52 pm #43126
You have showcased Shirley’s photo beautifully Royanne … well done Hon! <3May 22, 2020 at 11:10 am #43136
Hey, Annie, I’ll partner with you…my work is no where as beautiful as yours but I’ll try to make you proud…or at least pleased with what I do with your photo. I have to go look for a photo…May 22, 2020 at 7:07 pm #43161
Hi Royanne, Here I am at last, it took me some deep thought to think of a theme as I didn’t want to take anything away from the beauty of your garden and I see you are there busy as a wee bee fighting the weeds. Because I didn’t have a cleugh where to start, I decided to have a go at blending backgrounds and I was quite tickled with the result, so I had a starting place. I am a keen gardener too so I can see this id a big part of you. We are at the end of our gardening season here in New Zealand and winter is on it’s way.May 22, 2020 at 8:45 pm #43165
Bonnie I love your work for it’s honest simplicity and would be honored to have you scrap a photo for me. I am off to source one now. Thanks Hon!May 22, 2020 at 9:32 pm #43170
Hi Bonnie. This is the photo I will offer for you to scrap. It is of my dog Jasper and was taken in 2012 when he was 4 yr old. He passed last week so he never quite made it to 12 yrs. He was a real character and definitely the problem child! Dachshund and Jack Russell cross and he proudly exhibited every one of their undesirable traits, 😉 We have 2 other little yappers … a mini foxy chi cross and a pug. We are struggling with the change in family dynamics at the moment but, as you and I both know, time heals. The love however remains and for that I am grateful. All yours now my friend, thank you.May 22, 2020 at 10:07 pm #43172
This is so beautiful Shirley, you have definitely done justice to Royanne’s garden.May 22, 2020 at 10:23 pm #43174
Oh, Annie…he is sooo cute…I’ll bet he kept you busy! Do you have the picture in higher resolution? It is so small when I put it on a 12X12, 300 dpi.
I’ll get you a pic tomorrow…probably late but I’ll try….to get it asap.May 22, 2020 at 10:48 pm #43181
Hi Bonnie. Let’s try with this one and if it doesn’t work I will email it to you. 🙂 After posting this I clicked on his name which brought up the picture then I right clicked and selected copy image then I pasted as a new image in PSP. It should come out as size 4000 x 3000 pixels which can be downsized easily. Sorry about that … I must have been having a senior’s moment … I have a lot of those lately, lol!May 23, 2020 at 5:34 pm #43222
Thanks Annie, you are always so kind and it is nice to see you back I hope you are doing ok. Sorry for your loss its so sad when we lose our pets. I can relate well. xx
Bonnie, I checked Annies photo and it worked fine with option to enlarge on a 3600 x 3600 page when using the pick tool.May 23, 2020 at 8:39 pm #43224
Thanks Shirlz. I admit to going into a bit of a slump since Jasper has gone but I know it will pass. He was such a little character. When we got up of a morning he would jump around and bark a treat as a morning greet … I miss that. This cold spell has given me an excuse to vegetate on the lounge and lose myself in movies and binge watching tv shows … rugged up in pjs, dressing gown and uggies … of course! I confess to being reluctant to ‘get dressed for the day’ and relish the opportunity to stay in the pjs if I am not going anywhere or expecting visitors, LOL! I hope you are doing well my friend and I am guessing that you would be way more used to cold weather than we are. <3May 23, 2020 at 9:03 pm #43225
Oh, Shirley I love it ……. so beautiful. Thank you so much. The blending is wonderful and yes you should be tickled with the result.
Annie, our pets become a part of our family …..May 23, 2020 at 11:19 pm #43230
They sure do Royanne … he is sadly missed. <3May 24, 2020 at 12:42 am #43235
Hi, Annie…here are mine. I am giving you 2 from which to choose. This is my cat Penny. She is a rescue as all my pets have been. She will do tricks for treats…she will sit, shake hands, sit up, high five with either paw and ring a bell. I taught these tricks to Poppy and Penny noticed Poppy getting treats so…Penny started doing the tricks…didn’t have to teach her…she just followed Poppy’s lead. When she sits up she shows her white belly and that’s where her name came from…Penny for Penguin…as she looks like a penguin with that white surrounded by black. Oh…she loves boxes. I had just brought in the groceries in this box. Turned it up so it would take up less space while I put away the groceries and she claimed it. She thinks she is cute.
I resized these to 600 dpi as suggested for the forum…if you want them bigger I will repost…May 24, 2020 at 12:44 am #43236
Wow! Shirley and Royanne…you hit homeruns with your pages…they are terrific!May 24, 2020 at 2:37 am #43245
Thanks Bonnie, I am looking forward to see the animal switch results, its a shame there are not more participants, I enjoy these as they make you think a bit more and try to do justice to someone elses photo.May 24, 2020 at 2:53 am #43248
Thanks Bonnie. Penny is a cutie and sounds like she is quite clever as well. I shall get creating and hope to do justice for this clever girl!May 24, 2020 at 9:07 pm #43273
Here is the page I created for Bonnie’s delightful cat, Penny. She sounds like such a fun character Bonnie, that I decided to go with that in mind. For the layout I used a template by Marisa Lerin (Pixel Scrappers) and I also used a really cute scrap kit by Gina Jones (Pixel Scrappers) called “Bearly Spring”. The font used for Penny’s name is Solange and the title font is Austiebost Crazy Days. I hope I have not overwhelmed the photos with the layout … I always worry about that … but I think, overall, it does suit Penny. Hope it is satisfactory Bonnie! Thanks for takin a peek!
P.S. The journaling is out of a children’s book that I had for my kids. I think I read that to them just about every night for many years of their childhood … a well worn and loved little storybook, 🙂May 25, 2020 at 12:19 am #43281
Some nice elements Annie, I really like the fonts you have used. Well doneMay 25, 2020 at 7:23 pm #43304
Thanks Shirlz. The Austiebost Crazy Days and Solange fonts are both freebies on the web. I forgot to mention that for ‘My Cat’ I used a font called Cinnamon Roll Frosted JF and it is also a freebie on the web. Honestly Shirlz, I have way too many fonts and get totally lost when trying to select one to use, lol! <3May 25, 2020 at 11:31 pm #43313
Thank you, Annie…I love it. Penny is feeling pretty special as you created a page about her. Of course it is more than satisfactory. I now own an “Annie Original”. I love the journaling…sounds like a fun book! I would expect nothing less from you! Thank you so much, Annie!
This exercise made me stretch a bit. I have never scrapped for someone else. This was fun and, of course, Annie is the best!
Annie, I hope you don’t mind…I did 2 pages. I hope you like them.
