J is for Jacquii

This is our dear Jacquii. The lady who set the blog up. She
sent messages to us through the group on Yahoo, explaining why
she hadn't been around and why for the next few months
she probably wouldn't be as much on the sites or scrapping.
Jacquii is having health problems and l for one, want her to know
l am here for her so l did this page...

S is for Scruff

This is poor scruffy doo after her hairdressing appointment
with my daughter. Bethany gave her a trim, a mohican and
fluffy feet and a poodle tail, before she went on to turn her
mohican pink. Scruff has had to get used to being a fashion
guru in the doggy world.

B for Bethany

This is my daughter Bethany Mercedes and l thought l would
start the ABC pages that some of you are doing. The kit l used
was by one Inger who is a casual scrapper. The kit is called
Eleganza and can be downloaded from her store Twisted Scrapper.
It was an amazing kit to work with and you should pop over
to the store as there are amazing kits and elements etc.

Freebie Kit - Celebrate Nature

Good Morning, Scrappers! I'm pulling another 'all-nighter", trying to keep up with everything I want to get done. Who hasn't? At least once? I find it is nice and quiet and I get so much more done. I just have to catch a few winks, later, or I'll be awful to live with. LOL

Since this is my first post for the Casual Scrapping Group (Yahoo), I would like to take a sec and introduce myself, properly. My name is Su, short for Susan. I'm mad about Photoshop and design! I live and breathe this stuff. LOL I'm retired, so, I have some time to myself. My three children are grown. I have two grandchildren, 4 step-grandchildren and one grandson on the way. One child, my daughter, Sarah, with the two grandchildren, lives with me. Such a happy household! (What retirement?)

I have been working on a kit for the #2 Late Summer Kit Challenge. "Celebrate Nature" is sort of my spin on celebrating all that dear, ol' 'mother (earth)' has bestowed upon us at this time of the year. As I type this, we are in the early dawn hours of Mabon.

Some of the less 'glamorous' elements of nature are found here. I drew on as many images of natural things as I could and highlighted some rather unusual 'critters'. I tend to make all of my elements huge, then, transform them down a little, so, don't freak out if you see an huge - oh, nevermind. You'll see. LOL

Here are the previews, then. Click on each image for that download from 4Shared.

I sure THANK YOU for your interest! You really should consider joining our happy, little group, if you like what we have to offer.

Welcome Casual Scrappers.

Before I tell you about the group and this blog I would like to take a moment to thank Jacquii for her hard work getting this blog going. Thank you Jacquii. You are super!

Casual Scapping is a small group that I started on Yahoo. It is all about relaxed digital scrapping. No stress involved. Challenges are posted to the group, and members can do them when ever they feel like it. No deadlines, and no "real rules".

If you are interested in joining this group you can find the link over to the right.
You are also welcome at Twisted Convoys. That group is all about creating scrap kits and sharing them as a group. A blog train or convoy if you'd like.

This blog is for all those members who like the relaxed atmosphere of Casual Scrapping. Here you are invited to post your layouts and kits that you make as a result of the challenges in the group. You can post the previews of your kits and link them to your own blog so we can all visit you. I hope you will join in the fun and we look forward to seeing your creations :)
