Job very well done Val. Those flames are hungrily licking at your sons heels! ;DJanuary 17, 2021 at 11:54 pm #51704
Val, great job on Playing with PaintShop… a little scary though! 😀
Everyone else is doing some really nice work. Love looking at all the creative results.
Don’t know how some of you keep track of it all, especially Annie and Bonnie.January 18, 2021 at 3:50 am #51709
I know I haven’t been commenting or sharing much lately, but I check in almost daily. I always get my smiles. 🙂January 18, 2021 at 6:58 am #51711Raymond EasleyParticipant
Val, the boy getting away from the fire is really good!January 18, 2021 at 12:36 pm #51723
My submission for the Jan. Bootcamp assignment “Friends.” I chose to do a “A Family Affair” of a Bluebird family feeding their kids. It was lots of fun. My photog friend, Ed Frampton, initially dubbed the center photo: “Bluebirds Discussing the Housing Crisis”
Edit: I changed the swirl under to the top left flower to the leaves from the same kit.

I have not been very active lately, but I love to come here and see the wonderful work each and everyone is doing. Great job! The Campus is definitely a source of inspiration.January 19, 2021 at 2:45 am #51757
Some pics I made the last few days for my gaming group. For newer members who don’t know me, the game picks a different theme every day.
Photo Freeze: The girl is a character from the game; the photographer is clipart from PinClipart. I combined two different background papers by Jessica D from Pixel Scrapper. Finally, I used Cassel’s Winter Wonderland master class to create snow and the ice text (I made a little boo-boo on the second line, but it was too late to fix it.) The font is Bauhaus 93 as used in the class.
Sunday Stripes: Fonts used: Tall Stripes and Rasty Lop. The original pic is by one of my favorite illustrators: Malka Favre
Sky Blue Shades: Found the hairstyles on Google. I used the Antique Mosaic effect on the background. Font is Billy Signature.
Hope you enjoy them.January 19, 2021 at 5:47 am #51764
Hi Michele, all three layouts look great. I like the Ice Text very much; the Illustration really draws attention, and the text and font in the middle fit perfectly. The Antique Mosaic added a special effect to the otherwise regular background. Good job!January 19, 2021 at 5:48 am #51765
Love them Michele. You shouldn’t have mentioned the boo boo cos I have been searching and searching and can’t see it … you got me, lol! Love them all … my favourite – Sunday Stripes, don’t know why, just is! ;DJanuary 19, 2021 at 5:52 am #51766
Ann I said it before and I’ll say it again … your progress is astounding! Love you pages my friend and this one is a real cutie. You Go Girl! ;DJanuary 19, 2021 at 6:10 am #51770
Finally, after a long time, I was able to create and finish one scrapbook layout. I am happy to be working again with PSP.

I added confetti that I created some time ago following Carole’s tutorial (Creative Scrap>Miscellaneous>Confetti).January 19, 2021 at 6:12 am #51771
Michele: As I said on Facebook, I look forward to your creations. I’m a fan of illustration and, especially your Sunday Stripes is “POW!” 🙂
I’m with Annie … I couldn’t find your “boo-boo” either! 😉
(wondering how I’d look with blue hair…. )January 19, 2021 at 6:23 am #51773
Christina: That travel layout is FAB! How did you get that background specifically for Turkey? With the photos arranged around the globe like that the whole thing is very effective. I see you’re a Super Fan so you’re more experienced in PSP than I am. I just started doing layouts in June of 2020. At that time, Carole was hosting a Travel challenge and I started out doing double pages; 7200 x 3600, and then in order to post my work here I had to figure out how to cut each page in half! *awk! 🙂January 19, 2021 at 6:23 am #51774
Wow, this is a really cool page Cristina. Love the template my friend … allows you to fit in so much without it looking cluttered. Very cleverly done and a pleasure to view. Hugs……Annie TJanuary 19, 2021 at 7:38 am #51775ValParticipant
Ann S: I like how you added a worm and the tree with the blue birds flying over it.
Michele: Now I want to hunt down the winter wonderland master class vs doing the labs! Your layouts are inspiring.
Cristina: I love how you did the around the world. Connecting the pictures with arrows, planes, cars. Great idea!January 19, 2021 at 9:56 am #51776Bonnie BallentineParticipant
Ann, love your bluebird page. I love watching our bluebirds and I have seen them do exactly what your bluebirds are doing. One of them has decided they like the rearview mirror on my truck. Cute to watch but a mess to clean.
Michele, I also cannot find your “boo boo”. I do love your creations. I am impressed that you come up with something everyday. I lack the time and mojo to do that. Well done!
Cristina…love that layout. Very impressive.
Thank you all for sharing!January 19, 2021 at 10:47 am #51778
Ann, thank you! <3 Being here for many years, I have learned a lot from Carole, but there is so much more!
I started working on the background with the idea of having a grungy look… After trying different techniques, I ended up with 4 layers. It was trial and error, and it took me days. Everybody else would probably be faster!
1st Layer: white background (optional)
2nd Layer: Pixel Scrapper-2020Sep Artsy Papers “A Beautiful Mess BG-03” – Opacity=75%
3rd Layer: The Lilypad-Allison Pennigton “Simpatico” Solid Backs-Kraft 05 – Blend Mode: Hard Light
4th Layer: Turkey Text paper – Blend Mode: Overlay – Opacity= 32%
I will add a print screen, so you have a better idea. : )January 19, 2021 at 10:54 am #51779
Dear Annie, thank you so much for your words of encouragement. Hugs, my friend! <3
Val, thank you for your kind comment. : ) I have to credit Liz (The Lilypad-Scrapping with Liz), the template designer. She has great templates for the Travel theme, and I’ve used some in the past.
Bonnie, thank you so much! I have to admit I was not so sure about the result.
You all helped to boost my confidence. <3 Thank you!January 19, 2021 at 11:11 am #51781
I wrote another comment, and after I had edited it, it disappeared… and I did not copy as I usually do. : (
Carole, could you please check if it is hidden somewhere?January 19, 2021 at 11:13 am #51782MinkaParticipant
I have written about Henri once before, but yesterday I went to the hardware store to get a monster outlet to plug in some old externals. Yea! They still worked! I found more pictures of my little Henri. Couldn’t resist showcasing him a little better. He was such a little family pet. Had his own little carpet square outside the door where he would lay in the sun until about four in the afternoon when he knew he would get some cheese and meat scraps. Loved Milkbones, just like a dog and followed me everywhere I went. Two steps off my heels. Scared some of the neighbors. I had a fellow painting the inside of my house and he poked his nose in his trailer to get some paint and the next thing he knew he had a little orange head poked in there looking around, too. Fortunately, he knew me and my love of wild animals. He acted like it was no big thing … and to Henri, it wasn’t. I never trust a wild animal after the first growing year … and Henri was no different. He knew my voice and would stop in his tracks whenever I called him by name … he would run over to get a treat, but we never again hugged or romped. Once they have fended for themselves over a winter … they are wild. They may trust you, but they have learned to respect and distance from human scents. I have had pet squirrels, fox, (gray and red), deer, skunks, raccoons, seagulls and all kinds … but I draw the line on coyotes. No way. Henri was in a class of his own.January 19, 2021 at 12:36 pm #51783
Minka: What a charming fox! He looks happy and healthy there with a flourishing coat.
I have a friend in our State of Virginia who puts out dog kibble near their dens in the winter and occasionally a chicken with de-wormer injected to keep her foxes healthy. And she’ll trap them with a humane trap to give them rabies shots every 3 years or so.
Love the layout you made for Henri!January 19, 2021 at 1:25 pm #51785
Minka, you create a lovely layout for Henry, and I love the puzzle photo in the middle.January 19, 2021 at 1:42 pm #51786
It looks like my previous comment went into a dark hole, so here it goes again…
Dear Annie, thank you so much for your words of encouragement. Hugs, my friend! <3
Val, thank you for your kind comment, but I have to credit Scrapping with Liz (The Lilypad), the template designer. She has created other templates for the Travel theme that I like very much.
Bonnie, thanks a lot! I have to say that I doubted myself along the process.
Thank you all for the comments; they mean a lot to me.January 19, 2021 at 2:53 pm #51789
Our new President and Vice President will be inaugurated tomorrow, Wednesday the 20th at 12:01 PM. I felt it would be appropriate to make something to celebrate this historic day. All I can say is finally and stay safe!January 19, 2021 at 3:03 pm #51790
Thanks for sharing your story… Henri is adorableJanuary 19, 2021 at 7:56 pm #51798
Ah, a delightful layout Minka and what a beautiful little fella Henri is. You have showcased him beautifully my friend, well done. ;DJanuary 19, 2021 at 8:11 pm #51800
Yay Lynda, so happy about all of this! Now let there be peace! Love your tribute to this wonderful moment. 😀January 20, 2021 at 4:30 am #51804
Lynda, very appropriate layout, and congratulations on this historic day! : )January 20, 2021 at 6:53 am #51807
Thanks so much for all the wonderful feedback. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it; my confidence can always use a boost.
The “boo-boo” was that I left one of the layers hidden on the second row of text. I have a habit of keeping all my layers until I’m sure I’ve gotten the effect I’m looking for. With all the hiding and unhiding, I guess I missed it. Lucky for me, you can’t tell unless you look carefully at a large version. We are our own worst critics, aren’t we?January 20, 2021 at 4:16 pm #51819ValParticipant
Cristina: Interesting way to get a new look with changing paper blends and opacity
Minka: I like how you used stars the same color as Henri to bring out he was a star in your life.
