2014 December Daily

Hi everyone, hope you all had a good weekend. I have another blog for you all to look at. This is a new challenge for me. I've decided to try my hand at doing a December Daily this year. A lady that I subscribe to on her youtube channel is doing a challenge to help encourage people who haven't done a December Daily. Or, if they have done one in the past to get new ideas for future December Daily. She asked if I wanted to join her group and I decided to join. Because I like to challenge myself with new and creative ways. Also, try to think outside the box that isn't just scrapbook layouts. Have to say I enjoy doing these December Daily challenges so far. I've done two challenges by Sue, who is shiles728 on youtube. She a wonderful lady and became a good friend through youtube. She has gotten me to sometimes think outside of the box with my art. Her first challenge was to a cover for whatever you were going to use for your December Daily. That challenge is still going until Midnight November 29th 2014. So, if you're thinking of doing a December Daily you've time to check out her challenge.  I also done another challenge of Sue's. She was having a 24 hour challenge this weekend. The challenge is closed as of today Nov 23rd 2014 it ran from 11am Saturday 22nd to today 23rd at 11am. But what we had to do what alter a tag for our December Daily. Since I had a tag I kept from a order. I decided to alter it for my December Daily. Hope you enjoy seeing what I done so far in my December Daily project. Before, I forget her and another lady are both doing challenges for December Daily each week I think. I'll have links to Sue's videos below for anyone who wants to check it out. If you do check her videos for December Daily. Have a look around her channel, and if you like what you see. Please subscribe to her channel. I think she would enjoy having more people enjoying her channel and videos.

Another Heritage layout.

Hi Everyone,

Hope you all had a nice "hump day" Wednesday. I'm back to share with you another layout I did. This time I did a layout that included pets with my family. This layout I did was for a challenge one of the ladies put together. She does heritage challenges every month. This is one of my second layouts I did for her challenges. We had to find a photo with a pet or pets, family or visiting family. Or we could use a doilies. I choice two copies of photos of my paternal grandparents. One with my grandfather who had his picture taken with two ponies. These ponies weren't  my grandfathers they could have been a family or friends ponies. But my grandfather did keep horses on his property for while. He would keep the horses from Mackinac Island for the winter months for while. Then later my aunt as she got older. She loved horses so she got to keep a couple of them for while.

The other picture is of my paternal grandmother with her two sons. My uncle and father when they were young boys. With the dog Rattler, my dad didn't know the name of the dog. But suddenly last night it came to him. He told me her name was Rattler, she was his Uncle's dog, and unknown cat probably a stray cat that just happened to wonder in the picture.Hope you guys enjoy this new heritage layout. Please leave me comment below tell me what you think.
