Picture the Holidays

This year instead of doing Journal your Christmas like the last 2 years I am taking this photo class at BPS. I have decided to take the photo prompt and journal about that and make a simple 6x6 album for this years Christmas. I am using a modern american crafts album 6x6 page protectors and going all digital. I really want to focus on my photography and post editing skills that I have been learning so here is a look at my pages so far! These are 2 page spreads.......

So far I am enjoying the prompts and really enjoying the photography process.......I will post picks of the album cover when I finish it!

Sub Way Art.....a do it yourself project!!

So I am in gift making mode! And I have been seeing these great subway art signs all over the place. Now everyone has different tutorials up for doing these I looked around and then came up with a plan to make my own. I wanted these to be easy peasy......all you need is your Photoshop elements......your printer and some great fonts.....all of mine were free and found easily around the internet!
I decided what I wanted my sign to say and then played around with different fonts until I got it just right.....
then I stole some of my daughters water color paper..(love the texture!) and ran it through the printer!
These are the ones I came up with today.....this one will be for my daughters music teacher....I already had the frame and just added some cute buttons!!

This next one was the first one I did......I really like it and decided to keep it for myself!!

I already had this frame as well and I think this will look great in my hallway this Holiday season!!!

This last one is not framed yet.......this will be for my kids art teacher.....I think I want to get a piece of wood, spray paint it black and then mod podge this on. We will see. I love the quote though.....perfect for an art teacher at a Christian co-op!!

These are so easy and I think they look really classy! I am so glad I decided to try my hand at it!! I have some bible verses I would love to do this with as well!!!

LOAD 10/10 Day Four!

one little bird storyteller kit, font is fontastic journaling reads
I find it hard to believe that you are nine years old now. Where did the time go? You are growing up so fast and truly becoming more of a man every day. You are a hard worker and are always there to help Daddy with the next job. You are also a wonderful big brother always making time for Christopher and Caleb and making them feel good. I can really see you beginning to grow into the man God wants you to be and I am so proud of you!

Here is my day four layout for LOAD! I had a blast using a lot of what I learned in Amanda's Everyday elements intermediate is the before......kinda hazy and the lighting is very harsh because it was the noon sun on the beach......
 And then I ran color correct.......and deep clean and this is what I got.......I love it!!!! Soooo much better! I know I'm still learning but this made such a difference!!!

Hoping I can keep up this pace......4 layouts in 4 days so far!!!
