Now that's loyalty

The dog was created specially for children. He is the god of frolic.

This page really was a challenge for me, I wanted to have a timless feel but still have a sense of the energy that 'is' Luke and his pal Sam. The pj's are from Sweden, a dear friend sent them for him and when he was in the 'forest' the pictures came out with a timeless feel. This page took me quite a long time, playing with elements and goodies, trying different looks. The more I tried for something the less it worked, so I started playing with elements of color and movement and it worked.
My challenge, for myself, lately is to try and take the things I love in my digital scrapbooking and incorporate some of them in to my paper and hybrid projects, and the reverse is true as well. Not to copy entirely one medium to the next, but to get a similar feel or dimension from a photo that I want to play wit in both types of scrapping. Here is an example - one digi page which I
LOVE how it turned out and one paper one that shares a similar feel but is not exactly the same. I'm pleased with the results and it lets me try new things.
So here I am working, playing with Luke, trying to do some things around the house and to get ready for a crop tonight. I'm pretty excited about that, and am looking forward to spending time with other creative scrappers. It's not the same as scrapping at home with all my own goodies and little Luke and furry inspirations running around but it will be some good girl time. I haven't been to a crop since spring, and Earl's Mom is going to come along too. Should be a great time.

Luke and I were doing dishes, playing bubbles and how he is driving his Tonka Jeep/Bronco around the house. Feathers, our red and white Border Collie, has wisely decided to hide somewhere with stairs from the crazy little driver. I think it is time to get some more work done today, and get ready for a super weekend with the two loves of my life - Earl and Luke.

Be well and be brightly blessed, always and in all ways!
