Finally back to Digital Scrapbooking

Now that I finally have a new laptop I started digital scrapbooking again. I had to reinstall Gimp on my new laptop (which is a free software comparable to Photoshop). I highly recommend Gimp, it is very easy to use. I blended a picture of one of the gingerbread houses ino the background on this layout below. I forgot exactly how to do this and scoured the net for a Gimp tutorial on blending a photo. I eventually just played around with the layers and brushes until I figured it out. I didn't realize until I was uploading this post that I did post a link on my blog last year with a link on how to blend a photo in a background. I really like this effect and I plan to use it in more of my layouts.

Reeses Cups were my favorite candy as a child.

I was crazy for Reeses cups (and Doritos) as a child. My mom told me she caught me several times sneaking Reeses cups under our kitchen table as a toddler. (I thought I was hiding even though the table was made of clear glass.) ha! but I really don't eat candy very often anymore as I'm sorta a health food nut - but Halloween results in an abundance of goodies & if we are lucky there are a lot of Reese's cups in my kids bags ;-) So I decided to write an article on Yahoo called "Easy Desserts Using Reese's cups. " Hope you check it out all the ideas are super simple. I even have an idea for a semi-healthy after school snack (topped with Reeses of course!)

Crochet Cowl with Pattern link!

This was a really fun and easy crochet project to get me back in the swing of crafting. I looked through alot of crochet patterns online and I finally found this one. Crocheting is really relaxing when you don't have to follow a pattern exactly so I loosely based my cowl on the free crochet cowl pattern above. I'm already working on a blue one and will post a picture when I'm finished.

Cyndi Lauper iPhoneography Art

I had a headache all day that finally went away after dinner. I was happy it finally went away so I could play with a new iPhone/iPad app I stumbled upon on Instagram this morning. The app CutOutCreator in the iTunes store is so much fun! The pink swirls and white flower is 'cut out' from my own artwork. I imported a picture of Cyndi Lauper in the ArtRage for iPad app and after I used Toonpaint to make her look more like a stencil. I really like how this digital mixed media piece turned out :-)
