I have the bug. The photoshop bug. I have it baaaad. It's a great way to pass the time while I sit in the room with the boys at night waiting (and waiting) for them to go to sleep. And it feels much more productive than playing bejeweled blitz. I have a LOT to learn and I'm hoping that someday I look back at this post and think 'amateur'.

This was made using a kit by Deena Rutter. It's part of a layout contest over at Persnickety Prints. The winner is picked at random so I have as much of a chance at winning as the people who actually know what they're doing. That's my kind of contest. :)


  1. OK-now you get to email me and tell me how in the heck to do that!!! SO CUTE!!!

  2. It's beautiful! I don't know what you're talking about but it totally looks like you know what you're doing!! I love it. How did you do it?

  3. Very nice layout!! And what a cutie!

    I caught the bug about a year ago, it's so addicting!! When I started scrapbooking, I found an AWESOME program which is super easy to use to make layouts and I still use it.. it's called LumaPix FotoFusion. I do use Photoshop for designing papers and elements nowadays, but for scrapbooking I find it much easier to use fotofusion. If you want to give it a try there is a link with a direct download for the free trial version on my scrapbooking blog, .. Adding shadows and resizing and layering and things are sooo much easier than with Photoshop in my opinion. I like the program so much I became a I do get a small commission if you download it from my site and then purchase it, but even if I didn't, I'd still recommend it!! Don't want to sound like I'm trying to sell it.. lol You can check out the site itself at Oh and all of the layouts I've done on my adoption blog, I've used fotofusion essentials (with a little photoshop mixed in sometimes).

    Happy Scrapping! Great job!

  4. Very Beautiful! Thanks for entering my layout contest.
