Mosaic Moments and the Alphabet Challenge

Well, the Alphabet Challenge turned out to be a challenge for many of the DT in various ways. More on that at Journella as you look at everyone's layouts!

However, the current Challenge posting on Journella is "My Spot on the Big Blue Marble"
and I have a sneak peek for you:

and now my main reason for posting today...back to the Alphabet challenge:  


Take pictures that include Alphabet letters  - think of a message or a word you’d like to share - let it inspire the photos you take.

Example: You can take pictures that include signs, scrabble tiles, sidewalk chalk, chalk boards – or create your own letters using non-traditional materials.
Personally I chose to work with write-on boards and my subject was home schooling. I gathered a few friends and asked a few questions about their experience and requested a one word answer! I had hoped to go through the entire alphabet with signs, but had to settle for a nice layout, not overdone content. Here's a look at what I did, with more details available at my Journella Story Board spot!

For each of the families who helped me out, I took a few of the shots I took and tried a digital scrapbook page as a Thank You. I'd like to share a few with you today.

I used Forever Joy Design's Hydrangea Papers and Hydrangea Pretties (embellishments) for both of these first two layouts. Lot's of lovely designs can be found in her shop at Oscraps.

This one was with Merkely Designs Denimalicious papers, elements and alphabet that are now on sale! The tablet paper is my own creation added to carry the theme we were doing.

This last layout was created using Sweet Genevieve's Summer Soaked Watercolor Washed Papers. I purchased through Oscraps, but it seems that the Designer, Genevieve Kay, has discontinued this line and now can be found at Sweet Lilac Studio. I also used the coordinating alphabets and her ribbon wraps.

All fairly simple additions, but in time I may master the whole process of this new venue. I'm really just getting my feet wet at the moment with lots to learn!  Perhaps I'll even post the results too!
Come and Join us at's a great place to post your work and...a new digital product is coming soon...Cropdog! You can watch for further announcements by liking their Facebook page "Cropdog"
