Hello my poor neglected blog & what a long 5mth break from the digidares too… this week’s dare “Lost & Found” was a redo of a LO barely started before my hard drive crashed and I lost it. Needless to say the 2nd attempt turned out much better than what I remember the first being.
“Find a hap’penny and pick it up & all the day, you’ll have good luck”.

This week’s digidare is about scrapping about your preferred scrapping style (try saying that 5 times fast!) I’ve been wanting to scraplift Jana Morton’s “Blueprints: The angles of photoshop” example page since seeing it for the first time & going “wow! I think I can do that – what a great idea”. This dare just lent itself to showcasing heaps of LOs.

Had to attempt this week’s digidare again to scrap a LO inspired by the “what my friends think I do…” meme. Started out thinking I’d just go about it like the traditional ones with a gamer theme but it didn’t quite end up that way.

Scrapping a dream this week for the digidare. This one has been niggling at me for about 3 years now & I’ve even got the course about 1/3 done. What is holding me back – is it going to be worth the cost of purchasing a laptop or 2 and would I find enough students willing to pay to redeem the cost of those. For now – dreaming on!

Hoping I’ve snuck in in time for this weeks dare on celebrations. (edit: seems I have a whole extra week!)
For those non-MMORPG fans, a big yellow question mark indicates a computer game character who has a quest for you to complete – the perfect addition to DH’s birthday ultimate quest LO.

A music dare this week and it just had to be the good old Knebworth album from 1990 – 1st bought on cassette tape, containing classics like “Money for nothing” Dire Straits & “Hey Jude” Paul McCartney.

Oh how I would love to be able to teleport, so when I saw this week’s digidare on “what super power would you like?” I just had to join in. Save time, save fuel – as long as they can put me back together right at the other end it’d be awesome!
This is the first time I’ve found a use for the wind distort on gimp to give the “beam me up” effect, tried this when the “erase every 2nd row” didn’t seem to work. Rotated the photo 90 deg, ran the wind distort & rotated it back.
