Bewitching & Freebie

I have just finished a layout of my oldest granddaughter's first Halloween in 2000. The doodle that I used is bsc-blog-gliterr-swirlydoos-01 by Bunny Cates (resized & recolored). I made all of the papers myself with a special thanks to Barb Dundas for use of the Wrinkled & Crinkled Overlay.

I decided to offer the papers as a freebie if anyone wants them. As you can tell by the preview, there are more papers in the download than I used.

I'm still trying to learn about posting on my blog. I've tried to create a banner for the top of the page, but it dosen't seem to fit right :( I don't know what I'm doing wrong, anyone know, please leave me a note and tell me how to fix it.

I've joined a new Scrapping Group called Sweetz Scrapz. Everyone is very nice. I tried my hand at two tuts that were sent through the group today. Here are my results . . .

I used the Looking Blue tut to creat this of my 4 oldest grandchildren.

And the Pink Perfection tut to create this one of my youngest granddaughter.

I created this LO and entered it in the font challenge at DSO.
We were supposed to use the font 'A Charming Font'
I used the motion blur in PSP9 to change the background of this picture of my husband (the one on the right) and his brother. I really like the way it turned out.

Credits . . .
Papers used are from Neutrals Paper Pack & Curl Pack Kit by Cen's Designs - Resized
Buttons from the Peach Marmalade Kit by Jen’s Treasures, recolored and resized

June at Cen's Loft, who created the papers that I used in this LO, also liked the way this turned out, she posted it on her blog Go on over to her site to get these papers for yourself.
