Behold the Beauty

Japanese Maple-web

This is the Japanese Maple tree in my backyard. It is my favorite. The background photo was taken at night, then I turned it to B&W, then used a filter and blending mode on it. All products are Autumn Memories by Jana Morton,  and available at Passion2Pixels. Thanks for looking.

Like most siblings you two argue  a lot  and act like you don't

The journaling reads: Like most siblings you two argue  a lot and act like you don't care about each other. Yet when one of you gets in trouble the other one is there to support the first one. This is a scene when you were hiking, and if you look closely not only are you chatting and walking together, but Maggie has her hand in your pocket Bobby.  How about that!
Thanks for looking!

Hooked on Fishing

Used a new technique on this layout-for an artsy look.  I used the threshold filter on my photo to increase texture.

Super Heros

My grandson is so into super heros. I had the grandchildren all day Wednesday due to no school so I introduced them to  Wordle. Well the journaling here tells the result:
Super Heros-web
You are so into your super heros! You play super hero video games, dress as them for Trick or Treat, and playtime. You had a Super Hero themed birthday party.    You talk about them and when I introduced  you to wordle you even wordled all about them!  You read books about them too.  I guess it ‘s Love!!!
I only used one product on this page and it was by Katie Pertiet!  Thanks for looking!

The Fifties

Those Were the Days is a layout I did for a Shape Challenge at Jana Morton’s new site. I dug out my albums and in one was this booklet with all these articles and photos from the fifties, sixties and seventies. This album was Dick Clark's 20 years of Rock & Roll.
Those Were the Days
The booklet was thanks to Creative Graphics & Productions:Milton Sincoff Yearbook Design: Michael Mendel, Maurer Productions.

Wordle Challenge

Have you ever heard of Wordle???? It is place where you can create cool looking word art! Jana Morton had a wordle challenge this week. You go to and then click on create and follow the instructions. Essentially you type in the words you want to use then without commas, spaces and one set of words per line. It then mixes it up and then you can change the font, layout and color palette. Then you save it to PDF Creator. This will make more sense when you see my page. The Many Facets of Me-web

I think this would cool to use with the Silhouette! I am going to with my DGC. Have a good one!

Junkie Jive

I posted the other day about Jana Morton’s new site. You can find it HERE. Last winter a group of us at Creative Passions who were taking her classes began calling ourselves “Jana’s Junkies”.  On her new site she has a section called the “Junkie Jive” where once a month she will feature one of her students to let everyone get to know a little more about one another. I was honored to be asked to be the ‘Lead-off batter” for this project. You can find what I had to say HERE!

Have a great day!
