Photography Challenge at Pickleberrypop

If you’ve known me for long you know I love challenges.  The layout I’m sharing today is for the Photography Challenge this month at Pickleberrypop.  The challenge is to use one photo that depicts something, or someone, you love about your life.  Then split that one photo into at least two pieces.  Finally, add at least one line of journaling about it.  Like many of you, my grandkids bring me the most joy in life and I cherish time spent with them.

For the challenge, I blurred most of the large family photo and blended it into the background.  Then I focused and framed each of the grandkids separately.

Find out all the challenge specifics here & check out other clever and creative ideas used by other scrappers.  Be sure to post and share your challenge layout too.  The kit I used is Always by TirAmisu Designs.

New Releases are Live at Pickleberrypop Jan 14, 2020

New releases are now live and on sale at Pickleberrypop!  I used a black background paper in my sample layout today.  I seldom use black or extremely dark backgrounds but when I do I always love the results.  Dark backgrounds make everything else pop.  The credits are below the layout and are linked to the store.  I love this set of templates too.  Be sure to check them out.

January Bonus Challenge at Pickleberrypop

January’s bonus challenge worked out perfectly for me.  I love creating a layout with my goals for the year.  Then I modify if enough to use as the desktop wallpaper on my computer.  This helps me keep my goals in mind.  Plus, it’s pretty!  So here is my 2020 goal layout.  The credits below the layout are linked to the store for the kit and also to the challenge in the forum.

Use It All Challenge January 2020

Use It All challenge this month is hosted by Isa at Bellisae Designs.  I must admit I loved this one so much I also picked up her full kit by the same name.  If you want to participate in the challenge you’re only supposed to use the mini kit but as a CT member, I’m not eligible for prizes anyway, so I used some pieces from the full kit too.  The credits below the layout are linked to the challenge and also to the kit if you want to pick that up too!
