Just Imagine Crafts/Kreaxions and Cookin Up Creations Birthday Bash #9

Just Imagine Crafts/Kreaxions Punches and Cookin Up Creations Birthday Bash #9

I am multitasking... and also used the sketch from Ginni posted in the

Challenge link at Just Imagine Crafts.

I used Kreaxions Punch #919 in the lower left , topped by the fall away piece.... and

the cross looking pieces Iplaced in the circles as accents.

Also on the top left square I used Kreaxions Punch #302 and insert A.

Both the borders I layered the background with white cardstock

so the punch would show through in more detail.

At Cookin Up Creations the Birthday Bash #9 challenge is:

Polka dots, circles, circle photos, and red embellishments.

First Communion

So back in 2005 my Grand Daughter had her 1st Communion and this year we

celebrated her Confirmation. Thought it would be fun to do both of these

occasions as a double page layout.
The above Layout got the Daily Toot at the Scrapping Turtle today.

Kind of like the THEN and NOW.

I love working with the black n whites. Using either coloured or black n white photos is perfect.

Sometime I love to add just one colour to a black n white for amazing effects.

What do you do with your black n whites to make them special?

Share with us in the comment section?

Super Saturday wiith Just Imagine Crafts/ Kreaxions

OMG still lots of time to play along at Just Imagine Crafts with the June Challenge: use one of the sketches and at least two different punches ... and win a ballot to draw the end of the month. Check out the details here with this link.
