Recovery and Scrapping

Hi! I have been busy trying to recover all of the data that I lost when the computer had a factory reset....crash. I lost a lot of promotional factory programs that were not included in a standard factory reset and I am a bit miffed that they are gone. Especially Adobe Photoshop Elements 10. I really loved that program but I suppose this will force me to buy Elements 11 sometime this year, until then I am using version 7.

I have been scrapping along, working on some pictures of the grandkids that I love. I am getting an order ready to print more photos to use in project life. I picked up a couple of templates for PL to have multiple photos printed on one page. It should make it easier and I can do collages.

I have scrapped a couple of layouts of the boys that I love and are different. I will show what I have so far and will have to take a picture of the last one on a day when it is sunny.....cloudy and frigid here today.

This layout is one I love! It uses lots of dots and stripes in various forms. The mat behind the pictures is a light blue dot that is hard to see. The title word "cool" is also the same color blue as the mat but didn't photograph well. I have lots of practice to do using my camera. My favorite picture of Aiden is the one of him looking over his glasses.

This one of Logan is just too cute. Love his face so kissable! This layout was created with the cardstock pulled from my stash and the rest were scraps of paper on my desk. I wanted to use what was just sitting there. The kraft mat was a bit sparse so I decided to stamp on it. The arrows at the bottom are ones I got from Studio Calico in a kit for their Silhouette class. The outline arrow I stamped in brown was just really flat and just so-so until I picked out my sharpies in colors to match the papers and colored them how it looks custom! The crochet hearts are an element that I love. Bella Blvd. has a line of crochet hearts they debuted at CHA Winter along with feathers. I fell in love with them but have a limited scrapping budget and I know that they will be expensive when they hit the stores. I know how to crochet so I looked up a pattern on YouTube and got to work. I crocheted 60 hearts out of various colors of embroidery floss during the inauguration. The feathers are cuts from my Cameo, they don't have as many cuts in them that is something I did with my scissors to make the more "feathery".  I really love how this layout came out.
