Danielle ~ your "oops" is contagious. I finished mine and it too is no way a white space layout! Back to the drawing board.

I love making digital art. Some pieces are created from scratch with a blank canvas in Paint Shop Pro or Photoshop, while others start out as copies of photos - a couple of friends and family members will sometimes send me photos and challenge me to see how many different pieces of art I can wring out of each one, but I take most of the photos myself. One of my favorite art pieces started as a photo of downtown traffic at a street with a huge glass walled office building on the corner - it's in it's own mini album showing the photo, a couple of transition shots, and the finished piece.

Due to the limitations imposed by poor health and 'walking' on 4 wheels, I take most of my pictures in summer. If anyone wants to donate photos to my art, especially winter or 'oddball, muffed' photos, I would appreciate it. A link to my on-line gallery can be found on my blog.

I used Shutterbug by Digilicious to scrap the page.

my page is in the gallery here (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/white-space-challenge/p133668-summer-stock-up.html)

I wanted to apologize for my lack of hosting this month!!! I found myself in a very stressful CAR situation and it took center front big time. I THINK the issue is now resolved and I promise to be better next month :)
