Has it really been a week?

This past week has absolutely flown by. I'm not sure why. I went through a major scrapping spree early-on, working on the next BAM Color Challenge. Then, I think about mid-week, I found one of my templates on someone else's blog, hacked into a two-pager and claimed as an original. Thanks to Angie (IkeaGoddess), the blog was deleted for copyright violation. In case it's not clear, it is so not okay to take mine or anyone else's templates and/or graphics and claim them as your own. *sigh* Anyway, I got into kind of a funk after that and it took a few days to recover.

But I did! :) Here's one I did for the Altered Candy Challenge at Digital Candy. My alterations were the burnt edges on the cream-colored paper, sanded edges on the flowered paper, and a subtler change -- I flipped the orientation of the silver part of the clip.

There was also a speed-scrap this week. We got to do a lot of new things, like photomasks and layering/stacking and using brushes. :) Great fun! I also entered this in the Fontastic challenge at Digital Candy. This is my oldest at less than a month old. Isn't he so sweet?

Last but not least was the weekly challenge. I doubled-up on this one with the Numbers Challenge at Digital Candy (if you're on DC, you may notice a few slight differences on that one that I had to add to make it work). All the hostess wanted us to do for the BAM challenge was to use some "real" flowers or bits of nature. Easy peasy! :)

Template 34
This is a 3-photo template with inspiration! You can use any clip you like to hang the photos from a pretty ribbon or string (or rubber band, in my case!). There's also room for some layered papers and plenty of white space. Inspired by the templates of geniaBeana.
6/11/09 - This template has been updated and now includes both the original PSD and new PNG files.

That's all for today! In case I don't get back here this next week, keep an eye out next Thursday/Friday for another blog train!! BAM Color Challenge #2 is on its way!! Choo chooooo! That means no less than SEVEN coordinating minikits to download, plus addons from those of us who just didn't know when to stop. And yes that includes me! I will also have a GLITTER PACK to give you! Watch for it!

  6. Sdwrdt - She deleted my original comment, then posted claiming it was a redo of hers (but she had taken the template down). I commented again, and shortly after that the blog was deleted. I think it was because, at the time of my first comment, I also let IkeaGoddess know, and I learned later that she usually reports things like that to Blogspot. :)

    Life Psalm/Pixel Punkin: BAM stands for BabyAndMe, the mommy forum I frequent. We've gotten really into digiscrapping over there. *lol*
