For the Greatest of These is LOVE

For a while now I've felt the need to get back into the Word. So I've signed up with the group Faithbooking as well as doing some daily devotionals.

January's' focus is on "Love" so my page I'm posting today is based on January's focal point.
This layout has a lot of bits of pieces of various designers: Jen Maddocks Design, Anna Aspnes, Captivated Visions.

2016 Calendar Toppers

Every year Jim requests a new calendar, this year was no different.  I was way behind due to my work schedule, but I got it done in the nick of time.

Ready Set Go.....

My work schedule has been crazy for months now and not much time for scrapping.  I finally finished this layout I started weeks ago and forgot about.

Ready set go, shop till you drop.  I love this picture of Risa, just like a girl to make sure she is accessorized to the hilt before stepping out the door to get some shopping done.

Leaving a Bit of Sparkle Where Ever She Goes

I finally had some time to put together a layout.  It felt so good to scrap after weeks of no time.  Risa 2 yrs. old.

Adapted Brandy Murry 2016 calendar template and used her kit Love Is.  Wordart by Zoe Pearn in A Little Bit of Sparkle.

Morning Cawkey

Artsy Template Multi Pack 5 (modified)
Artplay Palette Airy
Foto Glow Mix 1

Process:With this one I started with my pictures that were adjusted in the camera raw function.  I chose the template that would work for placement value, turned off all layers except for the photo frames.  Placed my photos knowing that I would use one of them to blend into the background.  Placed solid paper 1 and Papier 4 above that.  I moved papier 4 towards the left a
quarter of the way and used the gradient brush to soften the edge, this allowed the solid paper to show through.  I masked one of the photos and blended it into the background with soft light.  I chose that photo because it was a bit blurry, but still wanted to use it for the facial expression.  for the rest of the layout I turned on some of the template layers, recolored some of them and then finished off with my title, journaling and element placement.
