Check out my 12x12 Digital scrapbook page I created for the Soul Scrappers Friday Challenge THC1 and I used My Digital Studio to create it.
Here is my quick digital entry- this is my dad and my first born Ray. The moment I read this challenge this photo jumped into my mind. My dad has been gone 14+ year now and my son is named Ray after my dad Raymond Ellis Davison my son is Raymond Lee Gamble and is now 27 yrs old. Dad used to come get Ray after he was potty trained every morning about 9 or 9:30 (before seat belts were even close to being a law) and Ray would stand next to dad in his pickup truck with his arm around Grandad's neck while he drove. They would go to the post office, to visit old friends of dads, to the DQ for a cone, and then home in time for lunch almost daily! So many good memories of their relationship and when dad died it was on Ray's 13th birthday. I am thrilled with these challenges on Soul Scrappers! They have me scrapbooking! I will have this professionally printed by SU as a single page and put into Ray's scrapbook. I may never have created this without this challenge! C'mon over to my blog or studio and let's create together!
We have about 6 inches of snow- check out these photos the top 2 are this morning and the bottom 2 are this afternoon
Ok friends, it's time for me to go. We are off to create some new videos for future posts and for me to try to get well. I have a horrid head cold. bleck-
I have made a pot of homemade chicken soup and its simmering on the stove, yesterday I threw an entire tray of chicken breasts from Sam's Club into the crock pot to cook, for the soup I shredded some of that chicken added veggies, stock base, salt and pepper and now we wait! I also made a loaf of homemade bread in the bread machine, put the dogs out watered and fed them
and took a few snow shots of our storm and a couple batches of laundry, read my email, played a game on facebook, replied to Soul Scrappers comments and yes, took a breath in there somewhere!
This is my doggie, his name is TANK. He is border collie, kelpy and mcnab- in other words he is a REAL Cow dog with no cows anymore! lol kinda like me a born ranch gal who no longer has a ranch. ( I am ok with that just miss my horses!)
He is about 14 yrs old and I have had him since he was about 2 but he is out of our old cow dog Toby the border collie. I made him a warm bed on the front porch. He is such a funny dog! I just love him. He has one white eye and one brown and no, he isnt blind in the white eye- its a genetic thing - freaks people out! lololol
ok friends, now that some of my chores are done, I am headed to my studio until soup time! WIsh you were here to join me for lunch today!
Over at Soul Scrappers we are having daily challenges and I entered 2 of them this week. One was for limited supplies and the other for a digital page about "me"
Here is my traditional limited supply page of my grandson Jack
our task was to use, ribbon, cardstock, journaling pen and rub ons
altho this is a very quick basic page, when I was going through my pile of Jack photos this one jumped out at me and said I MISS MY GRAMMIE! (not at all what is going on in the photo but who cares right? lol) and I just threw this page together in no time and it probably looks that way too lol sorry for that but this 6x6 page will be put on a 12x12 page with lots of other elements and more photos
Now you see why I use stamped sayings, journaling made from the computer etc lol my writing has turned into mush with so much time on the computer! lolol
Now for my digital page- I used My Digital Studio and created a page about me- the time frame for these photos is in about 1999 (do you ever hear that prince song when you say 1999- now I hope I can get it out of my head before class today! lol) remember you can click on the photos for a larger view-
This is my mom and I one day while I was working in my 2 acre Organic Market garden- I dont remember who took it probably one of my sons. My mom now has alzheimers and this week has been told to use a wheel chair. I love my mom and it is so hard to see her go through this debilitating disease ( I hope I spelled that right). We have always been very close, lived close to each other and worked on many many projects together.
Using my digital studio made creating this page so FAST!! WOW! I added photo frames for the 2 photos on the left put in - yes you got it JOURNALING because I have confessed before how much I HATE journaling! Thanks to Erika and the gals at Soul Scrappers I am making time to journal more. My problem is I have to much to say! lol
Remember that each page you create regardless of the method is a "work of heart" and will be cherished for years to come!
I have 2 classes here today= my Wednesday stamp group and a Birthday stamp a stack this afternoon- and lunch with Kris in between! woo hoooooooo!!!
On a somber note- My ex Father in law Frank Gamble, passed away this week, Altho he and I didnt always see eye to eye, I have a great respect for his work ethic and the help he gave to me during the years I knew him. May he rest in peace and our families find solace in knowing he no longer suffers.
have a great day everyone and thank you for sharing my life with me!
