I am so totally impressed with you guys!!!!! This is going to be hard, keep them coming though, the more the better, and my brain works so much better when it is on overload! I went to some scrapbooking stores today and got some great stuff, can't wait to share! You guys have a great weekend, get some stuff ready for the fall festival(don't be like me and cram everything in the day before) and i will talk to you soon!

Hi Lynn,
Could you please tell me how (in detail ...I suck!) How to do your crazy sizing for layouts! I can only seem to do the basic 4x6, 5x7, etc!

o.k. here is how you resize your pics. First of all i am ussing photoshop elements 4, apparently there is a 5 out now and it is pretty good. The very first thing you want to do is crop your picture. Make sure that the size that you crop it to will e able to be sized to a size that you are after. For instance if you crop it to 4 x 5 you will olnly be able to sesize it to dimensions that will be compatible with that size. 5 x 6, 6 x 7, 7 x 8 and so on. Now when you go in to image in your tool bar at the top of your page, click resize and enter the size that you want. Then I go in to print or print preview ( i have an epson printer) I then uncheck the centre image box, then where the image is there will be arrows around it and it will let me drag the picture to make it bigger or smaller. A lot of the time I just judge how big i want my picture to be here. This may sound a bit confusing but it really isn't. I am going to have my computer at the Fall Festival and we can go through some things there.

I do not ask to walk smooth paths,
nor bear an easy load.
I pray for strength and fortitude
to climb the rock-strewn road.
Give me such courage and I can scale,
the hardest peaks alone,
And transform every stumbling block
into a stepping stone.
