A Friday Freebie

First, a little "show and tell." Recently, I did a photo shoot of a young girl whom one of my sisters is mentoring. Rikki was a NATURAL, and you would never know this was the first time she'd had her portrait made, except for school pics. The first layout is made using my friend KimB's delightful Merry A Round kit--I'm just now getting around to using it, but it wasn't because of lack of inspiration, that's for sure! I was so honored when she gifted the kit to me and was, well, delighted with it. You can find it in her shop at Digi-Scrap Obsession.


This next layout is made entirely with KimB's portion of the yummy My Montage kit, also at DSO. This layout really doesn't do the kit justice because it's such a gorgeous kit, but I wanted to use it to help the photo "pop" but also to show the soft side of this edgy-young girl...the conflicting emotions that she's feeling that is so typical of her age.




My contribution to the April color challenge at Digi-Scrap Obsession, hosted by the divine Miss KimB:


And you can download it if you'd like. :)

Blessings on your day,
Melanie

That is soooo sweet of your sister to mentor Rikki and you spending time with her and taking her pics... so hard to be a teen and these days I have no clue and am shocked and saddened when I hear some of the things on the news.

Thanks for your gorgeous contribution! Have a Great Weekend ;)
