Four Generations

This is my grammy, my mom, me and my daughter. My grandmother died last February and her birthday is April 8th, so I've been thinking of her a lot lately. She was a talented painter and seamstress, which is why I included the brushed photo and mat and the dress form sticker.

Easter, 1975

Yes, that's me in the bunny ears. That's my mom, Sue and my dad, Larry. No, I don't know why he has a hammer.

Funny Faces

Made this for a challenge over at Scrap Girls: April Gallery LO Contest

Credits: Amanda Sok Charisma Album page template; Scrap Girls 'Refresh 2': dot paper, tag and style for dots; Angie Briggs 'His n Hers': light BG paper; Corina 'A Little Tattered': purple paper; Amanda McGee 'JakeEmma': chain; Atomic Cupcake Paper Tear Action; Faith True 'Birds the Word' collaboration kit: alpha charms; Katie Pertiet's Drop Shadow Styles; Bradley Hand ITC font; Adobe PSCS3.

Making those charms look like they actually were strung on that chain was almost enough to make me choose another alpha -- I didn't want to layer mask and detail each link! SO, I pulled all my alpha over the chain and put them where I wanted them. Then I selected the chain layer by CNTRL+clicking it in the layers pallette, then going up my layers, I used my quick selection tool to deselect the part of the chain I wanted to be under the alpha, then hit delete, which allowed the chain to be perfectly revealed looping over the alpha. Easy peasy!
