July 2014 Template Freebie

Decided to put this photo of my daughter into a digital scrapbook layout.  I made the layout very simple because I wanted the photo to stand out.  The kit I used for the layout is by Emeto Designs called, Seashell Whisper.  I also used additional elements by Scrapbook Graphics and Paislee Press.


If you would like to try out the template, just click the image below to download.  I’ve made it available in PSD and TIFF formats.



Remembering Moments


The family vacationed in Seaside and Astoria, Oregon (for daughter’s national dance competition) and Victoria, British Columbia (a mini trip in Canada) last week.  More photos to come but for now these take my breath away.





I took these with my iPhone then edited in VSCO Cam (also available for android users).  In the silhouette photos I learned that I couldn’t click at the moment my 12-year-old dancer jumped.  When I did that, I ended up missing her jumps since they happened pretty fast.  Instead, I clicked just a second before and that did it!  It’s all about timing.  It would have been easier if I had the DSLR with me but I didn’t bring it.  The family was trying to travel light since this was a road trip in the Camry.
