I got Published!!

OK, It was me that go puslished not my work, but still!!!

My sister-in-law is in black and white and I am on the right.

 This photo was on the front page of the Community Connection section of the Omaha World Herald on Saturday (2/25/12) and was taken by Kent Sievers.

I included a link to the article which is all about why people scrapbook ~ something you all can relate to!

And here is the layout I was working on when Kent snapped the pictures!
I was running the letters through my Xyron!!

I measured the photo (8x10) and created a mat by placing a square from George on my Gypsy mat and unlocking the chain between Width and Height (when you click on it it will turn from yellow to white).  When you unlock the chain, you can size the width and height separately.  I sized my square to 10.97 w x 8.25 h.  When I use Real Size, the square measures 10.25 x 8.25.

I added the shadow font of the alphabet from Nate's ABCs at 1.12 inches.  I welded them to the top and bottom of the mat.

I opened a second layer and added the regular font of the alphabet sized at 1.12 inches.  I cut out the letters in blue and red so I could alternate colors.

In the article, my friend Tammy called me the "Queen of Scrapbooking" which was very nice of her!!  Her youngest son is the same age as my youngest and I have taken care of him since he was 6 weeks old.  I knew she had a similar class composite photo for him, so I cut out an extra mat and gave her the letters I did not use so she could make a similar page.
Because sharing is what scrapbookers do so well!!

Thank you for stopping by today!
