Hummie's World - Scrapping Goals Challenge 6 - 3rd LO!

I chose the Sgraffito challenge - to scratch away parts of the photo to show the paper underneath. I used a couple of brushes to 'scratch' away the pic, and love the effect!

Hummie's World Course 2 class 12 - Outline Text

I made the b/g paper, made the text outline and then covered it with the same b/g paper!
I also used the colour replacement brush to change the colour of the flowers to match - that's a GREAT tool!!!

Gorgeous kit, full of happy, bright colours!!! See Julie's blog - or purchase at Exquisite Scraps.

Hummie's World, Course 2 Class 9 - Brushes

I LURVE brushes, so really enjoyed myself with this!!
I used a border brush on the photo (border brushes for photoshop by pyocola_sama) and a floral brush on the b/g paper (Dance of the Flower brushes by sleepwalkerfish), and made my own brush from text for the title (Font: VT Portable Remington). Stash used was Secret Garden Creations' Morning Song Mini Kit availale at Funky Playground Designs and Improvisations - seeing spots (sorry, not sure where this came from, but the kit is lovely!)
The flowers we bought in advance of last w/e are still going strong - most unusual for me, LOL!!

Hummie's World - Course 2 Class 8 - Gradients

I wanted ti make a LO about the General Election (how many times can a person say THAT in a lifetime?!! LOL!!!). It was more exciting this time because of the potential of a 3rd party actually being involved - for me anyway, LOL!!
So I made this for my class on gradients - I made one to match the colours in the photo and used it with the (enlarged) photo and a textured paper - all blended - to make this b/g!
Another great class with endless possibilities for implementation on LOs!!
Thanks Hummie!

CT LOs for SIS using Happy Easter, Happy Spring by Katzscrapz

Lovely little kit with some beautiful papers and elements as you can see! Grab it HERE at Scrap It Sassy!
I very very rarely ever scrap a pge in yellow, so set myself the challenge here! Then the first photos I saw when I opened up my folder were these sunset ones from about 5 years ago at Margate harbour. I don't think I've ever seen such a beautiful sunset, and got dozens of photos! I was so pleased to be able to use this one, and decided to show its full glory by going large!!
Family News: We have a cash buyer for our house, and have found a house that we want...with no onward chain! Our offer has been accepted, so it's all systems go to arrange a survey now! A lot of stress has been lifted, but I shan't relax until contracts are exchanged!
It's Evie's First Holy Communion tomorrow, so today we're having a dress rehearsal...esp. with the hair!! Antoinette's Confirmation is now on 29th May, and her Confession and rehearsal is this morning!! My girls are growing up!!

Class 7 at Hummie's World - Gradient Tool

WELL! I only managed 5 mins of the video before stopping to play!! I was so pleased with the effect I got, I saved it to use as a paper - and here it is!!! I promise to watch the rest of the videos ASAP, LOL, but for now, here is my creation using the gradient tool for a b/g paper, but also on the photo mat and the very b/g behind the paper!

Scrapbooking Goals Challenge #5 at Hummie's World

I had to choose a fave kit and make two pages. of course that's impossible (choosing!), so I went along with the idea that my newest purchase is my current favourite, LOL, so I used Dawn Inskip's That's Life kit - grab it while it's on sale at PickleberryPop!!
The top LO was inspired by Hummie - she posted that quote on her blog, and it just spoke to me so much...esp. at the moment with trying to sell the house and wondering where we will end up!
The 2nd is a photo from Easter Sunday and is very rare - mum and dad are both in it, and neither are pulling a funny face!!!
Great challenge!
