Spring, Summer, Fall. . . Party Time!

Here's a gorgeous kit by Doris, "Travel the World"
I thoroughly enjoyed using the elements & papers in Doris's kit to make the following two layouts. The 1st layout was inspired by the travel theme in this kit. It made me think Polynesian (from the palm trees to the pineapples & birds of paradise) and provided the perfect backdrop for our son Peter and a talent show that took place almost 2 decades ago.

He was 9 years old here (almost 10). Marci, the fabulous vocalist, told us just the other day that one of her memories of that day was Peter's repeated question -- asking over & over again -- "do I HAVE to wear the coconuts?"

Doris's kit, "Travel the World" has a bit of everything... full of gorgeous colors, textures and oodles of elements. I had a great time playing with PSE 5 for both of these layouts... using several papers and changing the opacity of each to allow the pattern from one to bleed thru to the paper above... creating texture and dimension (just as if I were doing the hands on (hybrid) scrapping... only SO much better -- no waste, get to use the product as many times as I want, can do blending that's not possible without digital scrapping and best of all... no chemicals! no rubber/latex!). I even experimented using the burn tool on the blue & gold papers to soften the edges. 
Hurry over there now to take advantage of this great sale they're having for their Fall Party. There's also a fun competiion going on ... lots of prizes ... both Nicole and Doris have fabulous designs to work with!
