Not Without Me

I just love this photo of Lilly. She didn't cry or throw a fit, she just went to her room, drug her diaper bag to the front door and waited. I have tried to scrap this photo probably twenty times and I just couldn't make it happen. Her P.J.'s are screaming bright red, and the diaper bag is hot pink and brown. Not exactly a pleasing color combo! LOL!!! Then Mr. Mojo showed up and this page came together in about thirty minutes. It took me longer to recolor the picture than anything else! Papers, doodles and flowers are from "Whisper of Love" by Anita (Nana's Attic). The chipboard frame is from the "Grins & Giggles" kit, I just recolored it. Rena had inquired about the font I use. It is called Freestyle Script. I am almost positive that it came installed on my laptop. There are a lot of nice free fonts here: http://www.acidfonts.com/index.html The one called Journal is a nice handwriting look. Password is: got my bag Remember, it is all lower case, and use the spaces. I have noticed quite a few comments from beginners. Hey, I was a newbie not very long ago! I will be glad to try to answer any questions you may have. Just ask! To Suzee: Question "How do you find time to digi scrap? Answer: I don't sleep much! Seriously, I paper scrapped for years, and sometimes it would take me days to finish a page. Digi scrapping set me free! The undo button and I are great friends! I created a file on my laptop called pages in progress. Sometimes I will only work on pages an hour or so at night, and then there are times when I will start @ 8:00 Saturday morning and look at the time later and it is 5:00 PM!!! There is no rule that says you have to finish the same day! But I have to say, when Mr. Mojo comes a knockin', stick with it. That's how "All Worn Out" came about!

This is such a beautiful page Vicki, I love it, thank you. In the past I've had to make some of my photo's sepia or black and white to get them to work. I've spent a whole year putting together a scrapbook for my youngest, who will be 21 next week. Your imput along with Anita's has been invaluable.
Thank you so much
Hugs ~o~
