Home for the Holidays Film Inspiration

From Screen 2 Scrap has monthly challenges inspired by movie posters. This month was "Home for the Holidays". We had to use "Home" in the title, journal in white and use photos from a family gathering. Heather T over at MScraps has an alpha called Alpha Giants, which uses the large half letters. Once I saw them I knew I had to use them. The rest of the digi elements are from an Mscraps blogtrain called Autumn Potpourri.
If you want to try a different kind of challenge you should head over to and have some fun!

Colors and Circles Abound

This is a digi LO I created for a Soul Scrappers Challenge. The inspiration was the Simon & Garfunkel song "Scarborough Fair". You needed to have a circle and a text wrap. I chose pictures from a Medieval Times summer camp my son attened. I used Flergs "Family Archives" and Katie Pertiet's "Monarch". Many colors were dark so I played with the Curves tab and opacity levels to get the colors how I wanted. That's one of my favorite things about digital LOs. If you don't have the color you want there is usally a way to create it.
I usually don't have circular photos so this was a challenge for me. I discovered I like using circles. Participating in challenges is a great way to try new things and stretch your comfort zone.
Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a happy crafting day!
