Thanks Celeste!

So I am sure that many of you know the fabulous and ultra-talented Celeste Smith! She symbolizes simple scrapbooking...great design, interesting photos and strong stories! I actually met her in the airport a couple of years ago as we were both on the way to CHA! We are almost neighbors, only living a few miles from each other. And I have the pleasure of serving on two teams with her!

Last month, she invited me to create a layout for an article in an Ella Publishing ezine Ellaments article. I was honored so I said, "Yes, please!" in a heartbeat.

I wanted to share the layout I created. (As you can tell, I am a little bit behind! LOL...my computer time has been cut shorter these days because of my living arrangement. But I am trying to catch up! Cindy...I will be sharing the rest of my Ally Scraps projects soon with directions!)

For this layout, I was asked to use the Polariod effect! It is a simple download and it is totally fun to use. I love what it did to my photos and of course I am a fan of white borders already.

I used a mix of Pink Paislee here...mostly the 365 Degrees collection! I love those pictures of Nathan! He was giving me his Transformer look...he actually kept posing as I shot!

The article is here and it is very informative. If you want to learn more about photo editing options that are cheap and see some fabulous work, check it out!

Thanks Celeste!

Speaking of ezines, the August Scrapstreet calls are up! I am looking for layouts with unique journaling placement and would love to see your work! Follow the directions here to send them to me for consideration...pretty please with a cherry on top!
