Hunting Season layout + two photos

Hi everyone I thought to show you my latest layout I did about a week or two ago. This layout is called Hunting Season. I wanted to do a layout with the photo of my grandfather deer and the photo of my grandfather with his nephew. The photo with his nephew was taken while they were hunting not sure. Anyway, my father told me a story of his dad with the deer. So, I had to do a scrapbook layout with the two pictures. I finally got to try my Ingnild Bolme Prima distressing tool I got from A Cherry On Top. I really like how it distressed my orange paper. 

I also decided to put two old 1910's or 1920's photos I colorize and I like how they turned out. These old photos were in a old snapshot book. It was my grandma's but I don't think it is any relation to us. She probably bought it from a yard sale. I often wonder why people sale their family photos. I wouldn't sale my family photos.  I will make sure when I die in my will. That all my photos that has people in them be giving to someone in the family that will take care of them.

Anyways it was in a old photo book the pages were getting brittle and I decided to buy some un-du remover. It where you can remove sticker, tape and Label from just about anything from scrapbook to photo album. Some of the photos were easy to get off some were not even with the un-du remover. But I scan them before removing them from the album. After I remove them and put them in photo box. I decided to fix all of them in photoshop. I still got few to finish but half of them are restored and saved. I decided to take at least two and colorized them. I enjoy it and it helps me keep up with my skills. Hope you enjoy looking at them and give me some comments on what you think.

A Cherry On Top Haul Video

Hello everyone,

Hope your Thursday evening is going well. I bought some more scrapbook supplies I know I said I wasn't going to buy anymore items. But a lady who follows my channel on YouTube send me a list of some online stores. So, I check them all out and realize that A Cherry on Top online store is based in Michigan in the next county where I live. I decided to check them out and liked some of their items. So, I decided to make an account and put some items on my wish list. Monday evening I order my items and they came in the mail today. It is the fastest shipment I had in while. I liked how they ship my package to me all the items were in a big 12x12 plastic bag.
You all know me by now I did a haul video. To show all of you what I got. But I'm only doing a video. I haven't took any pictures of my items thought the video is probably the only thing you like to see? Plus, didn't feel like take out the camera to take a picture of each items. I know shame on me since I enjoy photography but when you got about 26 items of scrapbook supplies!, lol. Or maybe I'm just having somewhat of a lazy camera day.

Speaking of camera or photography in general I should take my camera out more and take some pictures. Hope you all enjoy the video of my items have to say I look good in my haul video! I normally don't say that about myself maybe it the 5 O'clock Shadow! lol. Anyways have a great one guys!

Layouts and video

Hey everyone,

Hope all is well with all of you. I'm now finally getting around to getting these two latest layouts up. I'm almost done with my first heritage album. Then try to finish my grandfather heritage album that I'm in the process of doing. Then it will be on to finish the last heritage album of my other grandmother heritage album. But I'm enjoying it so far and it can be relaxing too. Hope you all enjoy the two layouts and the video of me talking about what I use in the layouts.
