Hope everyone has been enjoying this holiday weekend. Today I decided to play around with Photoshop, which I haven't done in ages. I did some online lessons with Jessica Sprague, the basic class is excellent for complete newbies like me - but I soon realized that I had forgotten a lot! No problem as the online lessons are always available to you once you purchase them.
I have collected quite a few paper packs, kits and templates since starting digital scrap booking, so thought that it was about time I pulled them out and played with them. Here is my layout.
These photos were taken on a recent road trip we took over the summer to New Mexico. My oldest daughter, Lauren was home for a few weeks from university, she is up in Tacoma, WA. It was a hot sunny day, we were waiting in a shady spot for everyone to decide what we were going to do next - the perfect opportunity to have a silly 5 minutes. My other daughter Phoebe, with camera in hand, managed to capture the moment.
For this layout I used a template called Half Pack 43 by Cindy Schneider available here from Sweet Shoppe Designs. The paper I used is from a kit called Remember to Smile by Kristin Cronin-Barrow, also from Sweet Shoppe Designs.
I'm quite pleased with the way this page turned out - I may tweak it a little and play around with some of the other digital elements in the kit, I will be sure to post the 'final' page before I print it out.
