Happy Halloween


Hello, 
I know it's been a while, but I'm back! Hopefully I'll be able post weekly now since my season will be less busy.


Yes ,I'm still designing for Soul Scrappers, I have been there for 7 years, speaking 7 years, we will be celebrating our 8th year this coming January.
Now, lets talk about my layouts, that I'm going to show you. Here is my first layout, that I have created for Soul Scrappers.
http://soul-scrappers.ning.com/


I want to show the Double page sketch challenge hosted by our new team
designer Lori.




                                   

Ghouls gone Wild.
How crazy fun are these photos, Hannah, and her friends
did a Zombie Pub Crawl, as you notice Hannah was a cheerleader,
what amazing job on the face makeup, pretty creepy, don't you agree.

Here is another take on these photos, I did
a single photo layout. Using Libby Sketch.
below.

                                 Here is another zombie layout.

TERROR-IFIC

On this layout I used black and red paint to make it more
gory.
******************************

Stay tune for next week I will be posting my of Christmas cards.

Double Layout Class

Hello Ladies,

This week, me and  my dear friend Shazza  are doing a Double Layout class  from  Big Picture. The hardest part about this challenge for me  is finding  a series of Photos.  The first layout is my daughter on Spring Break 2016, the second double layout is our Eau Claire Sculpture tour 2016, every Spring  the Eau Claire City counsel  brings in over 50 sculptures all around the world. They for a entire year, and then you have a chance to purchase them if you want. Mostly Businesses will buy them and display  in  front of their business. the third sketch is again Hannah's trip to Germany, back in High School 2012 . That is all until I finish week 2. Which will be 4 layouts. Wish me luck on finding  photos, each double has 6 to 8 photos on each double.

Here is week 1                 







              Thanks for stopping until next time enjoy your time scrapping.
                                        hugs Mary

Hello Ladies,
I'm back with Soul Scrappers LIFT CHALLENGE

http://soul-scrappers.ning.com/forum/topics/lift45-be-your-own-kind-of-beautiful-by-heather-mcmahon-uploads-b



What can you take from this LIFT.....paint splatters, butterflies, letters, paint cream or green?, fibers, long shape cut from foil, one photo.....
Here is my take on the challenge.

ROISE
I lifted the butterflies , green paint, black splatter paint,
my fiber didn't turn out the way I wanted it too, Oh well,
one photo which is of my Mom, she is in the center of  the 3 girls.
I would say she was maybe 16. It just amazes me back in my Mom era
how many photos they take of each. I guess time hasn't change much.
Thanks for  stopping by.

Friends
Here is Hannah on last mini trip before heading  back to college this
pass summer.
********************************************
next we have our song/ lyric
challenge, our song this month
is






Can't Take My Eyes Off You"



You're just too good to be true 
Can't take my eyes off of you 
You'd be like heaven to touch 
I wanna hold you so much 
At long last love has arrived 
And I thank God I'm alive 
You're just too good to be true 
Can't take my eyes off of you 

Pardon the way that I stare 
There's nothing else to compare 
The sight of you leaves me weak 
There are no words left to speak 
But if you feel like I feel 
Please let me know that it's real 
You're just too good to be true 
Can't take my eyes off of you 

I love you baby and if it's quite all right 
I need you baby to warm the lonely nights 
I love you baby, trust in me when I say 
Oh pretty baby, don't bring me down I pray 
Oh pretty baby, now that I've found you stay 
And let me love you baby, let me love you 




Here is my take on challenge. I used the phrase

"IT'S QUITE ALL RIGHT"


IT'S QUITE ALL RIGHT"
THIS BEAUTIFUL IS MY OLDERST DAUGHTER.
SHE IS THE WISE ONE OF THE FAMILY,
***************************************************
