A Wee Bit o' Fun!


This week Amber Ink is sponsoring the challenge over at Wee Memories...and you know what? It is an Anything Goes theme...so no excuses for not playing, k! ;) You even have 2 weeks to play! Seriously, can it get any better? Oh yes it can!! If the crew over at Wee Memories chooses your creation as the winner, you get a $15 credit to spend over at Amber Ink!!

As for my creation, I was lucky enough to get to play with Amber Ink's iPaper! So. Much. Fun! The coolest part, I can feed my paper addiction without the actual paper taking up space on my shelves! I am happily maintaining a title given to me by my scrappy friends: Paper Ho. And normally anything with a "Ho" at the end not associated with a fat man in a red suit would be considered derogatory, but the title was given in love. :) Don't I have the bestest crafty friends?!

This was my very first time attempting to make a little scene where the images overlapped. It was pretty easy to do, although I think I have a ton to learn.

(especially since my husband bought me Photoshop Elements 9 last weekend. Well, technically I bought it and then asked him if he cared...and his response was "does it really matter what I say?" Trained well, I say!!)

Anyway, Amber Ink has a great video tutorial program for those of us who are 'in need'! I will be studying this with a glass of wine and hopefully wine you...I mean WOW you next time!! :) So much fun!
