This is my very first Photoshop layout... ever!!
I have done some digital scraping using a simple program
called Memory Mixer.
But Photoshop is the Big Kahuna...
and I'm riding the wave of accomplishment at the moment.
Next step... to give credit to each designer of the paper
and elements I used in creating this.
I've kept records but need to find them on my computer.
My plan is...
(1) to begin my next class in Photoshop.
It begins on Monday... for 4 weeks.
(2) to scan all of the photos I have of my parents when they were
young (born in 1909 & 1910).
(3) to begin writing 'the story' to go with each photo on 'Word'
and save it for printing on each layout.
I want my girls to know all about their heritage
and so much of it was handed down in the oral tradition.
It was 12 below zero when we woke up this morning.
But we still went out and about.
We went to Barnes and Noble and browsed...
bought a few magazines and a book...
& had a Starbuck's Grande Pumpkin Spice Steamer.
I hated it!
Boyd drank it for me.

Good for you Mrs Yummers! You Rock!

Though I work with Photoshop on a daily base, I’m not really trained to use it and I only know a fraction of the possibillities!

Those are big ambitions! I seemed to be totally stalled this week. I'm hoping today will be better! Are you taking Jessica Sprague's course? I have to get back and redo the two I took with her. Cold here too, but not quite as bad as yours--8 below this morning. Tracy was hoping for a day off--wind chill factor--but every school is open.

I can't wait to see what you come up with in photoshop. That is one of my hopes and dreams for this year. . .to learn it!

Well done, the layout is fantastic. Are you using the full Photoshop version or an Elements version? I admire you for biting the bullet and doing the courses.
