I Love to Create for Love to Create!

Good Monday Morning to you all! Hope you all had a fabulous weekend. Today is my daughter's 8th birthday - Happy Birthday Sariah!!!

A few weeks back, I received an email from the lovely Jackie Randolph at Love to Create challenge blog. I had entered a few of their challenges and won some digi stamps, but she also had a proposition for me! She asked if I would like to join her design team - of course, I jumped at the chance to work with such a talented bunch of lovely ladies and today is my first project for the Love to Create Challenge.....

And it was a challenge! We have a colour challenge for you today - using autumnal tones from the following image. These are not colours I would normally work with, I didn't even have enough blues or yellows to be able to colour the image from our sponsor Bugaboo Stamps! So, I turned to digital creating!

I coloured the image called Girlz Jeans using GIMP software (this is a free program!) and then combined the image with papers and elements using My Memories Suite. A big thank you to Kapree for introducing me to these tools!

This is only the second project I've created digitally and it will never take the place of actually sitting and cutting and tearing and creating with papers and embellishments but I think once I find my way around, this makes a wee change - and I've learned how to do a watermark!

Thanks for looking! I hope you'll join our challenge this week!
