I Never Win Anything!

 In Anna Aspnes  newsletter  this week there was give away. All you had to do was enter your name for a Shutterfly Coupon . Now I never win anything but thought what the heck and entered my name. WooHoo, in this mornings email there was a coupon for a 8x8 hardcover book. I had pages for a book all ready to go and was waiting for a sale at Paper Kiwi where I have order books before. I've been very happy with what Paper Kiwi had done for me and it will be interesting to see if Shutterfly is as good.

The book is totally devoted to pages of my travels over the years converted into sketches using Photoshop. Below are some samples of the 30 pages which will make up the new book.

One of my favorite places in the world is Portofino, Italy. It nestles between the hills and the Mediterranean and is beautiful beyond belief. I created the page above dreaming and hoping to be able to go back again.
There was a challenge at Oscraps to create a page about Spring.  Spring has not sprung in my part of the world but I can only hope it will arrive soon. The photo of the early blooming clematis was taken last Spring in my garden.

I'm a Guest

I have asked to be a AnnaGuest for Anna Aspens designs at Oscraps. I'm a bit blown over and delighted to be asked! What do I do while I'm a guest, well, I post some of my digital pages using Anna's wonderful products. Not very hard at all. And am terrifically flattered to be asked.
This is the first page that I posted as a AnnaGuest. I've used Anna's ArtPlayPalette_Truth, and ArtPlay_ArtsyKards Truth. Don't you just the love quirky frame? It another Anna product called Free Form Frames. The darling little girls are my granddaughters showing me what they learned at ballet.

Clever Alice over at Jessica Sprague.Com posted a page using a envelope to show photo's she had waiting to be scrapped without actually doing layout. I thought it would be a nice FREEBIE to give   a gift to those who read my blog an envelope can be used in the same way.

Check out Alice's page and download this envelope and let me know if you used it.
