is the latest word up at OLW's challenge blog. I've been thinking of this quote I came up with a while ago as an idea for a stamp ( which obviously didn't make it into the catalogue !!!lol ) , just wondering what to do with it & then I saw the word up on the blog & I thought it would be perfect for the challenge!!So ...here it is!!! I really enjoyed playing with this idea!! ( I know, I always enjoy playing around in Photoshop...sometimes I just enjoy getting "lost" in it a little more than usual!! ) Here's another one I loved creating!! It's the only photo of the four of us & it was taken not long before Grandma died , so it's kinda special!! The background pp in it is a variation of one that will be avaliable ( I think ) as part of a small digi paper pack at SIS soon! I couldn't resist using this photo in a layout! ( A nice change from people!!) .
It was my 40th birthday yesterday ....( thanks everyone who wished me a happy one!!! It was so cool to hear Lusi's munchkins singing 'Happy Birthday " on our answering machine!!! And poor Brigitte even called despite the fact that she could hardly talk with her sore throat!! So sweet, you guys!!! ) Anyway...I'd better go...it's DS 11's 11th birthday today & he's requested Party Pies for dinner so I should get them into the oven!!!
...this one is for those who are a bit familiar with Photoshop.If you know about Layers you should be fine! I was playing around with some new PP designs & thought of highlighting sections in the PP with another PP!!...so .....have a go & let me know what you think!! ( let me know if it's too confusing to follow & I'll try to do another version.
I'd love to see what you come up with so if you're game enough to give it a go ,send me a link to your lo! (You can have heaps of fun with this...making the most out of your digi papers & adjusting them to suit your photo or layout as you please!!)
Hope everyone is going well, enjoying holidays & the lovely (!!!) weather!!! Oh, and a huge Thanks to Brigitte for the lovely lunch she prepared for Siany, Susan & I on Friday!!!I had a lovely time!! bye for now xx Mel ps; leave me a message! oh....lol...this is the lo I did using the technique in the tutorial!!
....thanks for the challenge! ( If you missed it pop over to Jill's blog & have a squiz ) . Lots has been happening since my last post...mostly the mundane day-to-day stuff that keeps me on my toes! We had our Birthday Party.....had a fantastic time!!! Everyone kept commenting on what a great party it was & it made me realise that we have great friends & that's what made it a great party!! It was so lovely to catch up with everyone!! Of course it took me a week to recover...I can't do late nights like I used to !!! Oh, before I forget...pop over to Scrapbooks,Paper & Things & check out my new Digi Kits!! There are some Freebies up ,too!!!! ...these swirls are some of the things you can grab for free...there are also matching frames & a brush !!If you do get some send me a link to your layout!! I'm looking into buying a program so I can do video tutorials ...just need to figure out if it'd be worthwhile, so if you'd like to see some tuts on my blog leave me a message so I can say to DH :"see....I NEED this program!! " lol!!! I know there was something else I was going to mention but I can't think what it was so I guess it can wait!!! ...Oh, I know...I have a new paper kit up at SIS ,too. ...I've used some of the papers in this one ! Anyhoo...I have to go ...holidays & all...kids need entertaining...washing needs doing!!! thanks for popping in! xx Mel
