Speed Scrap with Scraps N' Pieces

I did the Speed Scrap a day late over at the Scraps N' Pieces forum and it was huge fun! Also I got to work at my own pace, which is slowwwww.  It's hard to believe I've only been scrapbooking just over a year - at least consistently.  The only thing I did differently was not using a plain background. Because I love this paper from My Memories Suite - its from their "Looking Back" kit and is intersect brown. The other papers are pulled from other categories. Usually I am not a glitter person, but I like the scatters a lot!

Freebie Friday with My Memories

Yes, it is that time again and I have selected a very nice kit for you this week.  But first I have to tell you something I neglected the last two weeks. You not only download the quick pages, but you get the separate elements of the pages so that you can design your own page. That's what I've done with this week's freebie.  Here is a picture of the quick pages you receive. This is one of my favorite color combinations.

 Below is the page that I made with the elements I received. The pennant was my addition. And yes, you can add anything you want to the quick page or the page you create. I just wanted you to see how versatile these freebies are.

If you don't own My Memories Suite v 2, you should really consider purchasing it. If you use my code you will get a $10 discount on the program. My Memories has wonderful, inexpensive kits for purchase too!

Here is the link for the Freebies Page.

My Memories Blog - Wednesday Challenge Oct 26

I love the "No Faces Challenge" on yesterday's My Memories Blog. I knew I had lots of pictures with people facing away from the camera. So here is my entry in the challenge - taken in September 2011. The Losson Nature Preserve is a great park in Erie county, New York with miles of walking trails. And most of them are pretty well marked. Not this one though. Or we just missed the linkup to the next trail. We ended up retracing our steps several times and then ended up driving to the other side and approaching from the trails on that side. It was great fun!

And, I just had to make this a two-page spread.

Speed Scrap - Part Two

I couldn't leave the Speed Scrap page alone and liked the idea of using another picture for the background.So I changed it! The ship you see is not the one she was on but one they passed when they left port! 

The page will get changed again because due to a Hurricane, the ship rerouted to the Bahamas!

My Memories - Speed Scrap Time

I love the My Memories Facebook page Speed Scrap on Sunday evenings (8 pm Eastern/7 pm Central). This week we learned how to insert an image as word art. Part of the challenge is finding a photo and a font that work well together. I finally settled on a picture of the cruise ship older daughter is on.  And I changed it up a little from the page I posted on the My Memories FB page.  Older daughter might be a bit surprised when she comes home!
