Do It Digi Challenge for Oct. 8th, 2008

Ok, you'll have to forgive me! I'm still getting used to using this blog so I'm a little late posting this! This week's challenge is pretty easy.

October is known as Halloween month in my household. But, it's also Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In honor of this, pull out your pink supplies and colors and make a layout using as much of that color as you can. Bonus points if it's a non-girl layout!

Have fun and remember to post in the gallery so we can leave some love for you!

Tip: Title Placement on a Hybrid Layout

Hi everyone! I wanted to share a technique I use when placing letter stickers on a layout to create a title. I save the used tape from my tape runners and place the letters on the tape. Then I place the title on my layout and pull the tape. It is so easy and it keeps things lined up!

This is her #40 sketch for the year. Stop by and show her some love and let her know that we are out here scrapping out little hearts out using her inspiration. She can be found at:

Inspire Me ... ummm Friday!!

Sorry this is late everyone!! My Internet server was having issues yesterday and although it seemed that I was signed in, I actually wasn't here most of the day! I just HATE when that happens!!

So, for this week, I thought we'd try something different! Go to the Shaker forums and check out our Inspire Me! Challenge for the week!! Here's the link, just so you won't have to look for it... hehe...

I can't WAIT to see what everyone comes up with! There is inspiration all around, sometimes we just forget to utilize it!

Your challenge this week is to create a journaling block on a blurred area of a photo. Sometimes (this happens to me a lot - LOL), the blurred area is already there on my photo, but sometimes I have a crisp photo with extra areas that are just begging to be blurred and used as a journaling or title block.

I followed a tutorial by Jessica Sprague. Her step-by-step instructions were so easy to follow for Photoshop Elements, but I'm sure the directions could be easily converted to your digital program of choice. Check it out here: JESSICA SPRAGUE TUTORIAL

This is the page that I made following the technique.

Make sure to post your layout in the Shakin' Challenges Gallery HERE and link back to the forum so we make sure we see your creation!
