It’s time for a little Saturday Inspiration today on Tell Your Story Every Day!
Each Saturday we invite friends from all over our community to scrap a beautiful and meaningful layout for your viewing pleasure.
Our guest today is the talented Ellen (aka EllenT ). Let’s get to know a little bit more about her today!
I am 53, been married for 26 yrs and both my husband & I have always lived in Louisville, KY. I have one college age son, Scott, and we also have a dog named Jackson. I come from a large family (8 siblings) so I also use pictures of my nieces & nephews in many of my pages. I started scrapbooking when my son was in 2nd grade, about 15 years ago. I joined the PTA and for the next 11 years I was the Historian. Each year I made a scrapbook for the school. I won several blue ribbons at the state compititions. Back then, I was a hybrid scrapper, using Creative Keepsakes’ Creative Clips software to print out journaling blocks. Six years ago, I went totally digital and never looked back. I used several editions of PSE before I got PS CS4 last year. I taught myself how to use it and started to make pages for forum challenges. Then last August I applied for the CT position at Ninth&Bloom and got it! I love the designers I have now & always try my best when creating pages for them.
Besides scrapping this summer, for 5 weeks I will be teaching at a summer camp for kids. I love it because I get to take pictures of little kiddos doing all kinds of fun activities. And I usually have my class make a scrapbook with the pictures I take of them. I also like to watch TV. Lots of TV! Some of my favorites are Grey’s, Private Practice, Parenthood, 2 Broke Girls, Whitney, New Girl, Amazing Race and Survivor. I absolutely love DWTS and SYTYCD!
I love a good AAM page! The layering and clustering on this is gorgeous and frames the photo perfectly!
Today’s challenge is simple:
Take this layout, find something you love about it and scraplift it!
Use whatever kit or collection you like. There are no other requirements for this challenge.
And when you’re done, come back here, link us up and show us your story. You could be featured in next week’s post!
I hope you will join us this week! I look forward to seeing what you create.
