Summer scrapping

I have created a lot of LOs this summer.  These 2 are for challenges at Stuck Sketches.

The first is from the July 1 sketch.  It is my daughter from a museum trip in July 2012.  She did not want her photo taken, but was not given a choice by me.

This second LO is my daughter with some of her classmates at her award ceremony in June 2012.  She reached the NY state standard to read 25 book sin one school year.

My goal is to do an average of 1 per day so I can get caught up with my photos.  I am working on summer 2012 photos.

SBC Pinterst Picks

Do you belong to Pinterest?  Do you spend many hours looking all the posts? 
I created a challenge at Scrapbook Challenges give you some ideas of how to put Pinteerst and scrapbooking together.  Find a picture that you  like on Pinterest and then use it as your inspiration to create a LO or card.
I liked this poster of the car because of all the yellow in it with just the pop of white.

yellow car+small

I used it as my  inspiration to create this LO of my mom and niece at the Fair last year.  This is part of our summer trip that we do every summer.  It is a day to Celebrate the farming community where we live.  This photo was taken in the FFA barn where youth display their creations and projects that they  worked on during the year.  They fill a sandbox with kernels of corn for the kids to play in.
With all the yellow of the corn I thought I’d try to make a LO with mostly yellow, like the car poster.  Since blue was the next predominant color in my photo I used blue for my pop color in my LO.  I looked through my paper and embellishments and found things that were yellow.  I then used one small piece of blue paper and the letters in blue.

So go ahead and find a picture you like on Pinterest and then use whatever inspires you from it to create your own LO.
