I love crops...they really inspire me to get multiple pages done. It is my dream one day to do ALL the challenges in a crop....in reality, I get at least three done. Here are some I did for last weekend's Fall crop...
For the "use a big title" challenge, I had some fun with this photo of both my girls in braces. I had always wanted to get a photo of the two of them together with their sparkly smiles, and almost missed my chance! On the morning this was taken, Holly was to go to our final ortho appointment to get the braces removed. I grabbed my camera for a one last shot, just under the wire! Now they are both braces-free for many years, and my youngest daughter is the one with the sparkly smile!!
This challenge was to use just the center of the page and leave nothing on the edges. Pretty simple challenge, really, especially when using one photo! Her is my youngest, Miranda, before her 8th grade dance. Her friend, Tara is in 9th grade, but stopped by to see her friend all dressed up!!
I had some fun this summer following Miranda and her friends around the summer fair here in Oswego. I had just bought a new camera and wanted to play with it. It is asking a lot of tween girls to let a mom follow them around taking pics! The colors of the fair and the chance for action shots are just too much to pass by. Thanks for obliging me, girls!
This challenge was to use white and black with only one other color. I chose green. I played with my green paints a little, and cut out some green stars with the Cricut.
Here, I had to do a page about my favorite drink or food. I commemorated the Pineapple Chicken (served in half a pineapple!) at my fave local Mexican restaraunt. Miranda loves pineapple, and when she heard the restaurant started serving this dish, she was dying to try it!! We celebrated the last day of school here. My picture isn't great, as I was with a teenager embarrassed by her mom photographing food (hey, I was using my phone at least!) but it will do! While I was working on this page, I happened to notice a pineapple magnet on my fridge, so I added that to the page, along with some tropical leaves (from Life's a Beach) and little chicken legs (from Fast Food, one of my favorite Cricut cartridges)
