Check out my Slide Show!

Snowed in

Wow, we certainly got a surprise today, the weather station was right on!! I almost went to the gym to do only cardio, but decided that the roads were too treacherous. So the deal is that I can do another Photoshop class and make another page. Yeah.

The Gym

Well, I am finally going to a gym after all these years.  I have a trainer and I had 3 sessions with him (George) and I have a program to follow which consists of stretching, warm up with tread mill, those tough weight machines, even tougher dumb bell stuff, then the treadmill again with a small incline and a speed of 3 mph for 1.5 miles.  Takes me 31 minutes.  Then the treat of the fabulous ladies locker room, showers, steam, sauna, hot tub and all the classes I want.  So far I have gone twice and did the full session which was yesterday and today.  Pain.  I haven't yet used the locker room amenities because the workout alone takes me 1.25 hours and I have been going late in the afternoon so it's almost 6 when I leave.  Need to change the schedule.  Tomorrow it's only the cardio (treadmill).   So that's it.  I am up late because I fell asleep earlier this evening due to the strenuous activity.  I am happy to have started this program.  Missy and Erik gave the gym to me for a Christmas present.

Learning More Photoshop

Phew!!  I have been doing this for days.  I finally understand most of what I've done.  Notice the burning of the red and notebook paper edges.  I changed the color of the overlay (flowers) which were blue and reduced the opacity and blended them in to the red paper.  I developed a circle with round journaling (don't know if I could do this again) but I could add the 4 pictures to a circle again.  Most of the rest are just elements like the stick pin, and the papers.  I am happy with this but need to do it again for more practice on the zillion techniques in it.  I will try again with Alex's stuff.  Anyway what do you think??

Oh my, Chris and family went to Disney and sent photos that are really great. I guess I'll be doing Mickey and friends albums in the very near future. Can't wait to go myself now. Don't know when but I have the old urge.


Yup you can find me their thanks to my daughter Andee's direction. It is fun to find people. Check it out.

Digitally growing

Now we are rocking with Photoshop.  I am learning so much.  This picture was toned to sepia but the red flowers by my Grand daughter's nose are remaining red.  Cool right??  The ripped paper is a template but tricky. The even column journaling is another great technique.   I am slow but persistent and happy with my results.

Learning Digital Scrapbooking

This is one of the first Digi pgs I did.  It's really one I am proud of because I took the great picture and made a very stunning b&w color way.
