My first layouts

Well, if you are here, you are going to be fairly unimpressed, I'm sure. I've had great kits to work with, and good instructions on some, but I know the eye for a good layout is certainly not mine yet! But, here they are:

My very first layout ever - it was just to play around with the new goodies I got from Designs by Anita. I love her Brand New Day kit, which you can find here . While you are there, check out all her other great goodies - her work is awesome!

Secondly, I made this layout for the DSO Colour Challange - I was trying to keep it really simple, and really didn't want to add the pink and green and yellow, but threw those in at the end. This was done using mini kits offered in challenge - here

My third layout was made for the SDD Wordie Birdie Art Challenge - here I used LDrag Designs's new kit, "Butterfly's Whisper", and love the results! This is a totally awesome kit!! The word art was also provided by LDrag.

Lastly, for the moment at least, I did this tough one. This was for the DSS Mr. Bluebird's Number Challenge. Fortunately my oldest son took a digital graphics class in high school last year, and could help me with coloring the balloon - I was totally clueless - my ideas were WAYYY off! But, I really like the results of this, and hope he will help me do a few more like this, until I get the hang of it! I'm honestly not sure where the paper came from, as when I first started downloading things I did a VERY poor job of keeping track of where they came from, and deleted some things I shouldn't have... Sorry!

I hope to have more to show soon!! But, my 5 year old has what we suspect is H1N1, as it is going rampant in our area. Though I'm trying desprately to keep her from spreading it, I fear I'll be unsuccessful...

Wow! You're doing so great for a beginner! I'm so impressed. I love the balloon. And Butterfly's Whisper is one of my favourite kits. :)
