090730 Conal Backyard

090730 Conal Backyard, originally uploaded by knittinjen.

This is my Week 2 Survivor layout, where I scraplifted a beautiful layout called "The Islands" by user name Court8133 found at: I used my kit Vanilla Daisies for this layout. The amazing thing about this layout is that I did it in PSP having NEVER used that program before, but stuck somewhere that's all I had access to. So that explains the VERY simple layout, and any mistakes I may have made, too.

090726 Survive

090726 Survive, originally uploaded by knittinjen.

Well I am continuing on to Week 2 of Ginger Scraps' Survivor challenge, and I can't possibly get voted off, because this layout is my Immunity Challenge! Umm, I don't really think anybody is going to get kicked off this island...but that's okay, we're all having a blast! I used my own little kit, Rock With You, to create this page about the 10 (okay, 13 or 14) things I can't survive without.

So here's my first page for the Ginger Scraps Survivor contest - I'm nervous! I don't like the idea of possibly being judged OFF the contest. But with these gorgeous pictures of Tina Korba-Brama's kids in PARADISE, I don't see how that could happen. We'll see... This was created using the collab kit from Ginger Scraps called Another Day in Paradise!

My first page made with my first kit made for sale at my shop at Bouquet of Pixels! The kit is Vanilla Daisies - see the little daisy-like flower next to Amaria's leg? This photo is the inspiration for this kit, so I figured I'd better scrap with it.

Knittinjen's Dirty Diana - Tribute to Michael Jackson

Knittinjen's Dirty Diana, originally uploaded by knittinjen.

As a child of the 80's, I was completely obsessed with Michael Jackson growing up! His death came as a shock, and I was sad (though not as devastated as I'd have been as a child - after all, I have 3 kids, a son-in-law, a grandkid, a dog, and all kinds of other people to worry about now), but I still felt awfully sad and really nostalgic. I've shared his videos with my 9-year-old daughter (and created a new fan!), and wanted a way to memorialize him that didn't involve something crazy like traveling to California. an artist memorializes in her art, I will memorialize Michael Jackson my my digi-scrap art!

So this is the first in a series of kits inspired by Michael Jackson songs. Not necessarily the content (family-friendly, that's me!) but the title. This kit is for girls who like to get out and play in the mud! There are a total of 11 papers, 38 elements, and a complete alpha (upper, lower, number, symbol). Not all elements are shown on the preview (and none of the alpha, but it's awesome!). Please read my TOU. Also, if you've created a layout with my kit, please send me a copy (my e-mail is in my TOU) and I'd love to put it on my blog, and link to to your blog. I'd love to see what you create with my work!

Special thanks for this kit to Scrappy Shannon of Pretty Scrappy, who created the mud styles just as I was getting the idea for this kit - they are wonderful, aren't they?

My gorgeous granddaughter and my gorgeous sister-in-law together at Thanksgiving, 2008. Used the AWESOME kit Neutrality by Digilicious Designs from Digiscrap Mania. This is the kit preview - click on it to be taken to purchase if you are interested!

090708 Love Actually

090708 Love Actually, originally uploaded by knittinjen.

This is a quote from the movie, Love Actually, which I haven't seen, but Ellay from Stuff to Scrap chose for a quote challenge. The best part of the quote is not on this page - it is about how on 9/11, all the rushed calls were made of love, not one out of hatred and revenge. I used Butterflies Are Free by Scraps of Ellay of Stuff to Scrap.

090708 Meech Beach

090708 Meech Beach, originally uploaded by knittinjen.

I've always sung little songs to Meech with the words Meech and Beach - for obvious reasons. So of course I had to find a picture of him at the beach for this kit, "Just Beachy" by ScrappyShannon! You can find this adorable kit at Pretty Scrappy!

090707 Brennan Beach, originally uploaded by knittinjen.

I saw this background on Scrappy Shannon, and KNEW I had to find a kid to walk around on it! So I found this picture of Brennan (on my porch), extracted him, and put him on the sandy beach. (The water is just over the rise - that's where he's heading). This is from the brand-new kit, Just Beachy, by Scrappy Shannon at Pretty Scrappy.

Here is a preview of the kit. Click on the page above or the preview to be taken to purchase this kit!

090706 Awesome Girls, originally uploaded by knittinjen.

I'm just not into Halloween colors, so I decided to scrap the Halloween 2008 pix with these instead! Using a template by Robyn Pali and the Funky mega collab kit by Enchanted Studio Scraps.

090706 Father's Day

090706 Father's Day, originally uploaded by knittinjen.

Amaria was all bummed out on the morning of Father's Day, because her dad wasn't able to come over. Then - surprise! He was able to make it after all. They spent the day together and had the best of times. Created using Reflections mini kit by the Sunshine Wonder Girls at Sunshine Studio Scraps!

090706 Amaria Playground

090706 Amaria Playground, originally uploaded by knittinjen.

These pix reminded me of what we did this weekend - Amaria brought me to her school (oneka) and showed me all the fun stuff she does there! Some things never change. I did this with Summer Vacation by Scraps of Ellay of Stuff to Scrap.
