Dans la maison and Saturday's Workout Challenges

Over at Saturday's Workout, Sandy wants us to create a shrine. Over at Dans ma Maison, the challenge is to use the theme of "un petit roi" (a little prince), so here's my digital house/shrine, with a photo of my four year old grandson Avery...doesn't he have the CUTEST little smile!? Digital elements were designed by: Laura, Tracey and Laurie Ann, who all design over at Shabby Pickle. I found the crown at a free image site, just can't remember where, and added some digital crystals. I made the text "gold plated" in Photoshop. If you click on the image, you can see more detail.

June, over at the Art Freebie challenge blog, gave us this fabulous picture of the inimitable Ms Ginger Rogers as a challenge. Whenever I think of her, this quote comes to mind: "Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything that Fred Astaire did, except SHE did it backwards and in high heels!" Strong, talented women, gotta LOVE 'em!


Here's what I did, digitally, with her:


I used digital elements I purchased over at Shabby Pickle, the majority are from Laura Deacetis' Shabby Sugar kit and her Damask Don't Ask paper kit; those neat translucent balloons are from Faith True, also designing at Shabby Pickle.
