Give your worries to God...

One of our bible studies was on trusting God and not worrying. Shortly after that this Ziggy cartoon was in the paper. I took the liberty to modify it a little and create this layout.

High Key Photos in FotoFusion

DSAG April Notebook...

I am having so much fun with this month's notebook. There is an article about free style layouts and another one about black and white layouts with a hint of color. Here are two layouts that I have made based on the articles and using this months Guild kit.

The first layout was also part of a challenge to use the word begin. The word begin reminded me of this sunrise picture I was fortunate to take. I say fortunate because I am not a morning person so I don't generally get the thrill of seeing such a spectacular site.

For my black and white layout, I used this photo of my husband with our son's new dog Mandy. We have really been enjoying Mandy and we get to babysit her when my son works 48 hour shifts. I used FotoFusion to create this layout. I converted the photo to B&W in FotoFusion and adjusted the brightness, gamma and contrast to attempt a more high key appearance. I used the April guild kit for papers and elements. The damaged canvas and the black border come with FotoFusion.

Project 366...

My photo a day is turning into more like a photo once in a while. I haven't uploaded any photos since March 24th. How do the days go so fast????? Here is what I have so far. Click on the mosaic to go to Flickr to see the pics in detail. I'll post more pictures this weekend.

Brag Books....

We are putting together a set of 4x6 ready made pages to complete a 4x6 freestyle brag book album at Digital Scrapbook Artisian Guild (DSAG). The idea is that we use the April Guild kit to build our freestyle layouts. Everyone who participates will receive the complete album. Here are three pages that I contributed to the album:

Brackets are everywhere these days. Here are a couple of goodies I made playing around in FotoFusion. A bracket frame and a bracket mat. These can be used as mattes in FotoFusion or as templates in Paint Shop Pro or Photoshop. To download these just click on the image, then right click and choose "save as".

Happy Scrapping!
