Peggy Schenkel's submission....

Moments With You

Hi Shazz,
Here's my July submission.
I combined two criteria by cropping a picture of me wearing a hat, or anyway the closest thing to a hat you'll ever see me wearing.  The third criteria, using only shades of red and maroon colours was a true challenge.  I had never attempted anything coming close to a monochromatic LO, and it didn't come easy at first, especially since I found I own surprisingly few red papers.  However, while working on this LO, I grew to like it more and more, and I especially like the tone on tone alphas.
The pictures speek for themselves.  Last winter we had quite a lot of snowy days, and after school, my husband and I sometimes took the kids out for a walk with their sled.  The joy on their faces while sledding down a small hill or while having snowball fights is priceless, and always brings such joy to my heart.  I hope I was able to bring that joy to life in my page.  Thank you for another great challenge!


  1. Love the profile picture of you wearing the hat Peggy. What a beautiful layout with all of the lovely little pictures to look at!
