Memories in Time Blog Hop- It's All About Spring

Welcome to the Memories in Tyme blog hops - where you will find some seriously talented people who love to share their ideas with you! Our hop today and tomorrow is all things relating to Spring - full of ideas for layouts, cards, d├ęcor or whatever else we’ve all decided to make! This is Lynda’s favorite time of the year - where things are starting to look nice, not be too hot, flowers and trees starting to come out, and people in their yards making their surroundings look good!

Now, if you just happened upon my blog, then please go back to the beginning which is at Lynda’s blog (http://memoriesintyme.blogspot.com/). Besides, the beginning is always the best anyway!!!

Hope you are in a "Springy Mood and ready to see all the great projects. For the hop today I made a double page layout for some future pictures of granddaughters. I so wish you could all see this layout in person as the picture just doesn't do it justice. The pastel and muted colors don't show up that well and yet they are so pretty. I used Elegant Edges, April Showers and one of my all time favorite cartridges A Child's Year.

Here is the double pages

  2. The layouts are so very girly and pretty. I know it's frustrating when the colors don't show up but if I may give you a hint that I have tried....I use Picassa for my photo storage and I usually will click on "auto contrast " or I'm feeling lucky" to fix the picture quality. It always makes it look soooo much better!
