Do you ever scrap the same picture more than once? I find myself doing it again and again! Sometimes its the kit that makes me do it, the template, even the word art! But I think this is my favorite layout using this photo.

Kit - OnLine by Captivated Visions & Jennifer Barrette
Template - Fiddle Dee Dee - Fuss Free Volume 1

This is my girl Jessica!! However, Amanda takes to calling her Jeddica. So, when Jeddica puts on glasses that make her look like a FLY, you get a Jeddibug, right?!?!

A new month (even though we're almost three weeks into it) also means a new Collective kit from the Studio Girls! This month's kit is CHOCK FULL of papers and elements that will make any adventurer happy!

Here's the layout I created with it - using so little of the kit it isn't even funny! There's SO MUCH MORE to it!!

Third Grade

Amy Stoffel is having a contest on her blog, so I decided to enter! It was to use NO FLOWERS! Can you believe that?!?!? Anyway, I figured it wouldn't be a challenge if it was easy, so I took the challenge and here's my entry! Not too bad for not having a flower on it! LOL

What If?

I recently applied for the Digi Dare team. The application asked if you were to be chosen as a DigiDare-er, what would be your first dare. This layout is my interpretation of the dare I wrote for my application. Unfortunately, I didn't make the team, but I liked my dare so much, I decided to make the layout anyway...

Here's the dare I wrote:

What If? (A big question I know....) Do you have a person in your past that you always wonder about? Maybe an old boyfriend who broke up with you...or a friend who moved away. What about that family member you argued with and haven't spoken to since. Do you ever wonder about them? That magic question...what if they hadn't moved away? What if we hadn't broken up? What if something happened to that family member, and you couldn't talk to them again? Tell me your "what if" story. Who do you wonder about?

Dare Flair:
  • photos are optional
  • journaling is an obvious must
  • I'd like to see something to represent your thoughts/question...such as a thought bubble or a question mark
  • use the phase "what if" somewhere on the page...whether it be your title or somewhere in the journaling.

And that's all for today! And if you decide you like my dare, and want to try me! There's no prize, but kind of fun anyway.
