Oh wow this challenge requires an up front commitment :eek:

Sounds interesting for sure. Can we send photos for someone else to do for us but not commit to doing someone else's photos ..................:p

just kidding.:D

Hmmmm! This sounds interesting. I will have to find 2 pics to send!

angelwithin
06-08-2008, 05:46 AM
if anyone is having difficulty emailing the photos to me .....if you have the photos uploaded on the likes of flickr, photobucket, a file sharing site, uploaded to gallery here just pm me the link (plus little write up about pics) and i'll download them from there :D

O2BNGdHope
06-08-2008, 07:13 AM
Fiona, I didn't send 2. What's the purpose of the 2 photos? Should they match? Or should they be different so we can pick whichever photo we want to scrap?

angelwithin
06-08-2008, 07:49 AM
i only said two or more so the person scrapping the pages could have some choice plus last time i ran this challenge people wanted to do more than one photo lol

for anyone that hasn't got any photos they want done but still wants to join in i have a ton of public domain photos all different subjects that can be scrapped ...just pm me to say you want to join in i will send you some to do ....but dont expect them to be easy subjects cos under my wings and halo beats the heart of a right little mischievious devil

K, Fiona I sent mine to your email's now you have to figure out which one lol

KPierce
06-08-2008, 08:07 PM
I'm in. First I couldn't find pictures to send. Then I couldn't limit myself to only 2. :D They should be a lot of fun and quite the challenge.

O2BNGdHope
06-08-2008, 09:24 PM
Ok, I sent you a 2nd one. It's one of those that you can just make up a story about what's going on in the photo. I was really trying to get them to blow their mommy a kiss for her mother's day card. This was an "outtake".

angelwithin
06-09-2008, 03:34 AM
i'll be pairing you all up after i get back from work this afternoon (about 1 to 2pm est, cst time)

Sounds good, sent mine yesterday. Think that this is going to be a hard challenge. The few times that I have done this before, kept worrying that the other person would not like what I did.

I usually like what everybody else does better than mine, so I will worry more about not honoring their images properly.

Oh Hun, Your work is great and I for one am pleased to see a different style with my photos. Every LO is beautiful in it's own right.

I am in it to play with someone else's pics because I am getting so uninspired by my own photography. I need a photography challenge to get out of the house, hint. hint.

angelwithin
06-09-2008, 12:50 PM

angelwithin
06-09-2008, 02:17 PM

06-09-2008, 05:26 PM
Omajo, Tania and Toby are adorable !! This is the first layout that I have finished. Hope you like. I enjoyed doing it !
I used a shape template and changed the colors. I also used an overlay created by Manatee. This is an awesome shape template set. I'm sorry :( I don't remember who gave us this freebie. Please let us know, I'm sure their are others who would love to use it also. It was called "Childhood". I'm off to work on another one :)

Wickel
06-09-2008, 07:35 PM
These are the last 2 layouts. Thank you Omajo for letting me share the chance to scrap you beautiful children. It was a pleasure :) I used shape templates again to do these.The set is called "Childhood". The mystery designer is none other than Fiona Storey (aka Angelwithin). Its a great set of templates with lots of possibilities. Thanks Fiona for templates and challenge :)

I love that template and the flowers. So cute...especially with adorable babies. That would be an easy template to reverse one side for a two page layout look. I think Fiona was working on some two page layouts or was that someone else <hmmmmm>

I am almost done. :)Wow this is stressful but fun. Thinking, I probably should think on it some more. :confused:

ooh these are really good so far. Wonderful Wickel, Naugle and Mommabird!

I have started mine. I will try and finish tomorrow. It is late now and I can't keep my eyes open any longer! But not telling who's it is until I post it!!!!!

<rotfl> That's GREAT, MommaBird! Of course I'm now singing that song! "Who stole the cookie from the cook-cookie jar?" And I LOVE that sketch effect, too! Wow! Thank you SO much! Those are my grandbabies!! Hi, Babies! <waves>

Ha Ha! Rheanna will love this page full of kitties! It's a wonder she can even carry that fat cat around but he lets her do just about anything with him. She usually tends to throw him over her shoulder but this pose was so cute I had to take the photo. Thanks for scrapping it for me!

I logged onto my computer this morning and thought I would have a quick look at SBM before getting down to working on my pics. Too tired last night. Christine had sent me a message saying "I have done them" and I could not resist a quick peek. Totally amazed - I love what you girls have done with the pictures everyone has sent in.

Wickel the templates you have used are really lovely and the darker ones really set the photos off to best effect. - Very cute pics.

Christine if I had realised I could send in more than 2 pics I would have sent in a few - You have done such a lovely job with my little grandson and the colours are perfect.

Oh Mommabird I just love your sense of humour - I have to admit they do look like they were caught red handed - I am not sure what effect you applied to the photo, but it is very effective. The second pic you did is lovely. When I first looked at it my initial thought was "This would be so lovely done as a photo presentation card" - you know for giving to grandparents - the sort of thing that proud parents do.

Mel - lovely pics as usual. So very true too - kids are happiest when up to their eyeballs in mud and then they come indoors and its where is the milk and cookies mum. Look at the state of me, haven't I worked hard.

Oh well I had better get cracking as I can see I have a lot to live up to here.

angelwithin
06-10-2008, 05:44 AM
these are all fantastic, you are all so creative :D

there is still time to send more pics in if anyone still wants to join in

just to add a twist and more fun to the challenge i am going to upload 5 random public domain photos per day ...if you have run out of things to do you can have a go at scrapping one or more of them ........lets see what you can do with them :D

naugle1
06-10-2008, 08:07 AM
Melanie,
You did a fantastic job! Sorry about not letting you in on the pictures (I had emailed them in before I realized we were suppose to give you any information). But I love what you did-so creative-and I love the shimmer overlay from KimB. Thanks for your creative design!!! It is so much fun to see what other people come up with-I love all the postings so far!!
Christine

Fiona sent me Pics from Maureen. I had a lot of fun with these pics they are so cute. This is her GD. According to Maureen she started out with the phone when she was going up the stairs, had to put it down, but then had to have it again. I put my own twist on the situation. (Hope you don't mind Maureen).

I croped out some material from her bottoms to make the paper. I made the frame work to for a "stairs". I used some shapes from Donna's (Autistic Wonders) Misc shapes.

Hope you them Maureen

Sue, left you a PM and also commented on the layouts. The photos were extracted from a movie that I took of her as she was trying out her talents. Your take on it was perfect. Thanks a bunch for doing them.

All, love the layouts so far. Have mine started; however, keep getting distracted.

sacannon
06-10-2008, 02:08 PM
Decided to do another one just to have some fun. The framed portion I did in PSE 6, then added the background to match. This is Maureen's (Makeyesup) GD. It was another pic from her on the stairs.

When I first saw KP's pictures I thought, this is just too cruel. The more I looked the more little ideas came and I spotted this lovely little girl sitting on the rocks and went from there.

KP I do hope you like this one - more to come

Man what a fight... long story short my son went for a bike ride...i kicked him off the couch and made him ride his bike... he came home after shopping at the local mall. Now he is home all day as school is out and wants computer time as he bought a computer game. sigh. What a fight, I miss my quiet house.

Anyway while he was at soccer practice I had a moment. No, I am the boss but we are sharing the computer time. mwhahahaaa.

Sue, thanks for the great photos. Another one is coming yet i have to put the thinking cap on.

Wow that page is so cute and funny. Such a little bit of a girl on a huge elephant. <LOL> I bet others are a wondering what in the world! I can't wait to show the mother of that little girl. Thanks for such a vivid imagination.

{PS: Is that an elephant stick pin?}You are very welcome and enjoy

;) CrystalSorry honey, been there, done that etc. Now if it was a little kiddie between 1 and 10 that would be a different story. I just love kids at that age - they are so inquisitive, have a never ending thirst for knowledge and are so loving. Not too keen on babies - I like them when they start to realise that they can be cute and get attention, and after 10 they start to go into puberty (yuck - tantrums, no thanks)

It is wonderful Vanessa. It fits perfect because I am sure that is exactly what he was thinking. I am sure my daughter is going to want both of these pages printed.

What's not to like about all the pages. Everyone is so creative and talented. This is only Weds. Will this challenge hold out until the end of the week :D

Thanks again Vanessa

I was sitting looking at this picture this morning and my wicked sense of humour kicked in. All of a sudden it was screaming at me - Dinosaurs, Jurassic Park - look at the dinner on the rock. Sorry KP - I couldn't resist it.

I think Staton's (my grandson) Grandma Bobbie had a hand in making you think of pigs. She died when he was about 10 months old, but, you know how some people have their kitchen decorated in cows or roosters? Well, her entire house was decorated in pigs! Cute little ceramic pigs, huge statues of pigs, lawn pigs, pictures of cute piggies, etc. They even bought a pig statue to put on her grave. So I think she may have been instrumental in swaying you towards the pigs. Anyway, that made your creation that much more special!

MommaBird, Here's the one with the swing picture. Just thought the kit with this wordart was perfect for the look on her face.

Glad the piggies brought back sweet memories. Probably had a nudge from above on that one.

Ok,had to do one more. Am I addicted or what?
I used Kathy Woolery's "Looking 4 love" for this layout. On the pic I used a mix of styles and effects from PSE6.

Most of this layout is achievable in SBM exept the extraction. The outer edge would be acheivable with shapes I should think. :)

I was wondering, how much different is PSE6 than PSE5? 6 came out right after I purchased 5. I have Photoshop, but was just wondering what is different in 6 from 5. Thanks.

If PSE6 came out right after you got PSE5 you might qualify for a free upgrade. Many companies do that kind of thing.

I didn't have "5" so I can't say. I went from "2" to "6" and it was a big difference, how ever I still keep "2" around because there are some things that "2" had that "6" doesn't. So I occasionally still use that one. I have it stored on my external Hard drive rather than my "C" Drive.

pkdoll
06-14-2008, 06:48 AM
Thank you Wickel!! I am sooooo happy that you like them. I think the reason that this was sooo difficult for me is because I scrap backwards from most people. Most people have a picture they want to scrap and than look for a kit that would showcase the picture the best---most of the time I find a kit I really like than try to find a picture that will go good with the kit. I do sometimes have a picture I really want to scrap and than try to find a kit or kits to go with it, but more often than not I find a kit than a picture. I had a lot of fun with this and I thank Fiona for challenging me on this one. Thank you for your picture choice too Wickel! He sure is a cutie!!
