Blogging has taken a bit of a back seat to life this past week or so, sorry about that but I'll be back at it soon.
After a serious lack of scrapbooking mojo on Monday I managed to finish up this weeks spread yesterday. I love how it ended up so I need to remember not to push myself if it's just not there. All I needed was an extra day.
Here is the full spread,
and the left side. It's a pretty kid centered week this week. Sometimes that's just the way things end up.
Here is the right side.
I finally had my first Pumpkin Spice Latte! It was delish!
the QR code leads to a video of her puppet show, super cute!
The last slot took the most time this week. I started with this photo that I loved of Simone.
I really loved the way her face looked in this photo and wanted just the portion of her so I used the eraser tool in PSE and erased the parts I didn't want. I did this with my photo as one layer and a transparent layer below it. It took some time, you have to go slow so you don't remove good parts. I had to erase some of her wispy hair on the right side but I love the way it turned out. I need to practice a bit more and maybe learn how to blend out the edge a little bit but I love the effect.
Here's a better look outside of the plastic protector.
I never thought I would use those sequin butterflies but I'm glad I hung on to them.
Thanks for stopping by!
