Ta-da!!! Challenge complete.

Recently my friend Amy created and posted this PhotoShop template {after being challenged by Sharon to convert a paper page into digital} and challenged her blog friends to create and post their own version.

This was such a fun project, and I'm proud to say that I put it together with a fair amount of ease. My PhotoShop skills {while still at a very beggining stage} are coming along, and I can see that with a bit of practice {time and shoulder permitting} I could be seriously addicted to creating layouts in PhotoShop.

PS: I'll admit, it took me longer to upload this "photo" than it did to create the layout! I finally realized that Blogger wouldn't upload it because I hadn't saved it as a .JPG file. Oops. Sorry, Mr. Blogger, for saying naughty things to you...it was my fault, not yours.

And PPS: Thank you, Amy, for being so generous and sharing your template! I loved playing with it and plan to use it to create a monthly page of happenings in my life. :o) xo

Well, let me be the very first to compliment you on your very cute, artistic October layout! Digital--very good! As always, you have some very clever jack-o-latterns and your Halloween crafts look so adorable! My fave pic? My DGD of course!! Love! xo

Great job on the digi layout! It is hard getting started with Photoshop but once you get the hang of it it will be a great tool for you.

Ohhhh Deb - fab page and welcome to the dark side!

Amy said...

WOW! Look at what you have done! Once you get the hang of things they are easy and fast and the options are never ending!

Well done Deb :-)

Remembering to convert to a jpeg is something I forgotten many a time - that, and forgetting to resize for blogger upload and wondering why on earth it is taking a bazilion years to upload is another of my most common tricks!

Love, love, love this! But do be aware, Deb, digi-scrapping is the darkside!

Wow! Everyone is rocking this challenge. I love the color combination - that lime green really pops the orange!
