Back to School

The challenge over at Can You Digi It? today is Clean and Simple, which I think for most of us scrappers is definitely challenging!  We want to add a lot of embellishments and fill in any white space.  Sometimes the pictures speak for themselves, but sometimes an explanation is necessary, and every once in awhile, a very lengthy explanation is necessary.

I had just returned from a visit to a school in Baikonur, Kazakhstan when I decided to prepare for this challenge.  I naturally wanted to use the pictures I had from the visit, but I knew that to someone reading about the experience without knowing me, they wouldn't know what it was all about without a lot of explanation.  It suddenly occurred to me to write it up in a newspaper-type design, so what you see below is the result.  I used the cute Beach Fun Paper Pack by Striped Elephants.  I chose these colors (blue and yellow) because they are the same colors as the Kazakhstan flag.

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

This is What Love Looks Like

Another pet page!  This is my husband with his Golden Doodle shortly after he got her as a puppy.  Her name is Sophie.  Isn't she adorable?

The cute doggie in the upper left hand corner is from Kini Art.  She has a lot of adorable images that are inexpensive, so check them out!!

Hope you find some time to scrap today!
