I used the Flora Bella Vintage Wine action and Vignette action.  I am having so much fun using these actions.  Thank you Dear Kight for surprising me with them!!

I used the Florabella Vintage Haze action with Photoshop Elements 6 for Mac. I did no other photo editing; I don’t know how (but I’m learning). I posted these just to show you how nifty and beautiful (and easy) these actions are!  If I can use them anyone can use them!

Yes, my baby is 4 years old and is delighted with that fact.  Sunday was the big day and babycakes Cupcake (her own hand-picked nickname)  was over the moon in love with the whole idea of “Birthday Girl” specialness.  She wore a special cupcake dress (gotta love Gymboree and their great prints) to church, had too many to count folks at church wish her a happy day, had her very special friends Bryan and Kristen over to share  her star and moon cake (and ice cream) in the afternoon and had a ducky shaped pancake for dinner (birthday child gets to pick  dinner on their special day)!  All in all it was a success; Cupcake enjoyed herself and we enjoyed her excitement!

Sleep-Day 27

Sorry that the pages are not in order;  there are some I haven’t  posted at all.  Day 27’s layout is inspired by Shimelle’s from JYC…I had the hardest time coming up with anything on my own so I used her LO as a template and recreated the basic elements but with my own twist!

Here it is day 30 of JYC and apparently Tink has caught my journaling/scrapping bug.  She has been busy making journals for the past week and a half; confiscating any and all stray photos she can get her hands on.  Fortunately for Tink I print off a great many more photos than I actually use.

Tink's unfinished masterpiece!

Here is what my work station looks like:

JYC day 30

What I haven’t shown you is the rest of the 7 foot long table which my journal (and all its accoutrements) has taken over!

I am having FUN with this class…so here are some of my pages. They are not in order but this is the best I can do.  I still have a few pages awaiting pictures and/or inspiration!

day 10 page-samples of this year's wrapping paper

day 11 page-all about a special ornament

day 13 page-my favorite Christmas Carols

Oops!  I just noticed that day 13 needs a title! Back to the drawing board!!

Coram Deo,

Lola
