changes, this month's charity kit from Songbird Avenue, the proceeds benefit the National Parkinson Foundation, is very special to me, as my Mom suffers from this debilitating disease! Am off to purchase mine, and you can too, by clicking on the preview!

On Golden Pond

DigiDare #95
scrap about the water and your favorite wet way to cool off on a hot summer day!
Dare Flair:
I want your layout to FEEL wet and cool. Let’s see lots of blues and greens on your layouts!
Use 1, 2 or 3 photos
Focus on a corner! Pick a corner on your layout and spend all your time there! Put your photos, most of your elements, and your title all in/around that corner.
Use a border of some sort around your whole layout.
On Golden Pond:
what to do when you live in the mountains and it's too cold to jump in the pond? You build a raft and float on it!
