Hello, hello? Oh my gosh, I'm alive! I tell you what, after the Memory Makers challenge entry I created, I was totally wiped from scrapping. That, combined with planning for Eleana's 3rd birthday party and I had no time to scrap for fun. But I have to say, if it weren't for Jen's challenge I never would have scrapped.
Of course it helps that I received a really awesome kit from Sweet Spuds recently! I mean just look at all these goodies!
So as soon as I saw the oranges and pretty shades of brown and touches of pinks, I knew what picture I was using and why. I had taken a couple of pictures of E recently that I normally would have probably deleted straight away, but I thought to myself, "These pictures would be so pretty if I bleached them a bit in photoshop" so that's what I did.
Additionally, the gals at Scrapmojo have just released a new challenge, and I caught it on the first day, lucky me. Of course the first title suggestion they list is what I'm going to use! "3 is a magic number" fit Eleana perfectly because, obviously, she just turned 3 on Sunday!
I sorta spliced the two photos of her together, so the shadow on the right wouldn't be cut off. It looked awful with the shadow cut in half. So I cut a place into the photo on the right and slid the photo on the left into it, so I could overlap the shadow.
I tried to group things in amounts of 3. There are 3 clouds (which I created using Stickles) and 3 august stickers on the left side of the page. I also used 3 staples on either end of the ribbon.
