So as I was making yesterday's page, my 7 yr boy and had this conversation. Thought I would make a great page to capture the conversation. I did ask him later if he had a girl in mind for his wife and he said, "no".

Still do not get the pinning thing. here is my link....http://www.pinterest.com/justpennys/contests/

Toiny, I'm still not clear on pinning. When I click PIN IT on Valentina's AUTUMN SONG page, it takes me to her Pinterest board. Is this where I pin it----or do I pin it on MY Pinterest board. And if I pin it on my board, do I start a new board called Mini Kit Challenge??? Sorry, I'm still fighting to learn the in's and out's of Pinterest.

I had never used a scroll frame that didn't completely close but decided that a mini challenge was a good place to try my hand at it. I chose Avezuir's very pretty mini kit "Aged Victorian Taking Tea" from the "In Bloom" co-ordinated collection (though that porcelain woman in the kit doesn't look very aged to me). I played with layers and blend modes to bring out the subtle pattern in the background paper a bit more. Then I turned my attention to the fact that the delicate tea service was just a bit too pale in colouring and was getting lost. I wedged the tea service between two layers of the large rose and then used the burn mode on the top rose. It nicely enriched the colour of the tea service underneath without obscuring it. Of course it also allowed a bit of the petal edges to creep on top of the tea pot so I had to manoeuver things so that the petal edge looked like it was part of the teapot's design. I am slowly learning to zoom in more when I overlay layers and blend them. Leaving a straight edge around the layout drew too much attention to the fact that the frame is offset to the side of the page and really did not compliment the curves of the frame so I added an irregular outline to the layout to tone that down. The kit contained a great lace doily that was begging to be used but, even though I am a laceaholic, I decided that enough as enough. Sometimes restraint is your best tool. Middie

For day 2, I've scrapped my model building hubby when he was little, and I've used Jr. Mechanic mini from Let Me Scrapbook.
