School Days

I'm not back to my winter scrapping yet, but I've eeked out 2 pages with the school pictures.

I love how this page turned out, especially the picture.  I previously mentioned I ordered a Photoshop Elements book from The Digital Scrapbook Teacher.  It has some really cool things you can do and what I did with the picture is a series of strokes and layering.  I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out!! I used the Toddler Life kit from ScrapALatte Designs. 
This page was from a mini scrap challenge over at Divine Digital.  The kit is by KS Designs (part of Schooled by the Numbers full kit).

Double Layout in Photoshop ~ Sweet Summertime

I've mentioned before that I love Persnickety Prints for printing my scrapbook pages.  About 2 weeks ago they linked to a post from the Digital Scrapbook Teacher.  Since I'm self taught on using Photoshop Elements 7 and I see so many cools things that I'm not sure how to do (or what they are called so I can research them), I scooted right over to check out the site.  I was so excited about what I saw, I ordered Patty's book and some of the tutorial CDs.  I stalked the mail person for a couple days just waiting for it!!

Now I've spent days with my head in the book and my earphones on listening to the CDs that show the step by step tutorials from the book!! How very cool!  Love it!  I would highly recommend if you are a Photoshop Elements user to go check out the Digital Scrapbook Teacher!!

So, in the book she shows how to do the 2 page layout.  I had already completed the page on the left side and knew I wanted them to somehow match up.  I'm just so excited about how this turned out!!

Family Reunion Kit by Digital Compilations by Cinda

I'm so excited that Cinda has been working on quite a few very cool digi kits!  Her newest kit is Family Reunion, which can be found at Scrap Delicious.  I loved the word art that is an add on to the kit and when I read it, I knew which picture I would use.  The picture is of my Grandma Kitty and I just see so much of all the girls in our family in this one picture.  Below is my page with the kit:
