A Roll in the Grass

Since DSO is down for their make-over, I get to share my June 2010 Font Challenge layout here. This month's challenge was hosted by Nikki aka Just Passin' Thru and the posting bonus is gorgeous... so be sure and check it out.

I love the pictures I used for this challenge because of the sheer joy on Ms. J's face as she is rolling through the grass. I loved this layout so much I even turned it into a desktop wallpaper! It makes me smile every time I see it and it reminds me there is joy in the simplest of things if we just look for it.

When was the last time you went for a roll in the grass?

Beachy Keen Freebie

It's that time again! Time for another terrific DSO Color Challenge from KimB. This month the colors brought to mind the beach for me. I added a touch of Caribbean blue to the challenge colors and it was definitely beach time!

I also tried something new for me this month... scenic papers. When I upgraded to PSP X2 it came bundled with Corel Painter Photo Essentials 4 and I have been dying to play with it. I love the look... even if I do say so myself. *lol* I always see such lovely layouts with scenic papers. I just never seem to come up with great ones myself. Sooooo... if you use the scenic papers or any of the kit for that matter, I'd love to see your layouts!

I hope you enjoy Beachy Keen!
