    UGH- this is way harder than I thought it would be! You guys all made it look soooooo easy with your beautiful LO's - shame on you!

    Anyway, here is my first go at it- I'm learning a lot as I go! Thanks for all of your help. And a special thanks to Stacy, for putting up with all my questions!

    This is 5x7- going into a wee mini book for DD Rachel & her boyfriend- they went to Boston this summer and the New England Aquarium was the one of the highlights of their trip. They got amazing pics there.

    Christi,
    You did a great job. I LOVE the colors in your lo. What program did you end up using?
    Try going to the 'Tut Your Own Horn' challenges at GottaPixel.com. They start out very basic and progress. Also check out the link in the ScrapLair.com forum...very organized with links to LOTS of tutorials and add-ons.

    One more thing...did you use a kit here. I really like the papers. See this post for how to Credit your elements.

    And keep trying...it really DOES get easier the more you do it!

    Christi - that came out great. It is really hard at the beginning and can be very frustrating, but it does start to get easier.

    Christi, great job. That's one technique I haven't tried as yet. TFS

    Thanks for al of the nice comments ladies! I won't even tell you how long it took me to do this! Hopefully I will get faster as I learn what I can & cannot do.

    I used Scrap Flair to create and used stuff I downloaded from some of the places you gals had talked about.

    The word JELLY was a metallic looking alphie I picked up at one of those spots, and I just stretched it to fit.

    All I am using is my adobe photo & the Scrap Flair gizmo. Maybe for Christmas I'll get one of the photo programs you all use...any suggestions?
