Doing a B.O.M Challenge... On HUMMIES WORLD

I am working on a Book of Me Challenge On Hummies World..   

I think everyone should do a B.O.M album, as we scrappers rarely scrap about ourselves. Our Children would appreciate a book about their moms, just as much as they do books about themselves.
There are 2 sets of Challenges for a total of 40 pages, a great start to an Album all about YOU..

Here is what I've done so far.. One Page I did Twice.  I will ad more as I finish them..

This is Challenge 1 Hometown

Challenge 2 (one) Defining Moment in your life.

Challenge 3 Favorite Traditional Hymn.

This one I did with out the journal box  for myself.

Stay Tuned for the rest of the series..

Altered Box : Chair

I plan to do a video of this box so that you can see more detail. I had seen these 2x2 paper fold boxes, and was inspired to make a different kind. Mine is made from a 4x4 paper mache box from the dollar tree. I made the back of the chair with a piece of chip board.  The Striped paper is from DCWV Luxury Stack. The other paper is a type of velvet paper that's really soft. I had the little vintage spaghetti poodle hanging around, which use to be part of a figurine set but the lady had gotten broke. I even made the pillow the dog is sitting on. This turn out to be a very study box and was a lot of fun to make.


You Tube Channel....

I just wanted to share the link to my You Tube Channel. I have an altered box Video, my first ever altered box, as well as videos of my craft room, which starts out as a Mess, and continues as I try to get it straight.
I hope you will visit my channel and comment on my videos.

Celebrate the 4th of July Scrap N Style...

Over the past few days I've been doing a lot of Fourth of July Pages and a Card.. I thought I would share them here with you...

The First Two Layouts are Digital - From the Americana Bundle $9.99 at Daisy Company and a few other elements from various Free Kits..

This Layout is a Hybrid made with a few digital kits, printed in 8x8, then matted on 12x12 card stock and embellished with prima flowers,  Distressed Inked Grunge Board, and ribbon.

And Finally a Card Using Digi Stamps... How Cute is that! The Heart Stamp is a freebie from Operation Write Home, the inside dog and word art is my own creation.

Hope I've inspired you to create some 4th of July pages/Cards Yourself..

I had fun last night playing with reflections, and thought I would share my pages.

The first one is of my dog Hooch. I often use these photos of Hooch when learning new techniques because of the plain backgrounds.  I first made a Word Art Frame with his name, added his pictures and converted it to a Bitmap.

Then I copied the Bitmap, reversed it and butted it up against the first picture, using tools like Transparency and Blur effects, I made it appear as a reflection of the top photo.

In  the following page:

 I used two photos that my DH took of a Sun Set and water.
I first took the sunset picture, copied and reversed the second image, butted it up against the first, applying the same techniques as I used in my page of Hooch. Then I took the second Picture of water, used the transparent effects and layered it on top of the second photo.
Added the boat, ducks and lab puppy and came up with a very peaceful page.
Hope you enjoy my pages..

Then Printed and Cut it out, added the ribbon handle and little charm dangle. I made the charm dangle with some broken pieces of jewelry, some pony beads and a key ring.
