I went ahead a purchased Adobe Photoshop Elements 6. I just want to say thank you for all the helpful comments and emails that I received. I’ve been playing around with Photoshop to edit some of my photos. I’ve found that my experience using Coral Paint Shop Pro X has been extremely helpful, since most of the tools are very comparable.

I haven’t jumped into any digital scrapbooking… yet! I did download a few digi scrap kits that I would like to play with in the future. But before I do any of that I HAVE to finish Austin’s baby scrapbook. A couple years ago I had this bright idea to re-do his book and Riley’s book. Well, I finished Riley’s and only made it half way into Austin’s book. My goal is to complete his book before I start any new projects/hobbies. I have everything out and ready to start working on it tomorrow ~ wish me luck!

Okay onto stamping: here is another card that I made using the same designer paper as the previous card, from daisyd’s. I’m totally addicted these little Gemstones from Hero Arts, for this card I used them on every scallop. A few weeks ago I picked up some Frosted Lace Stickles and I was able to use it for the first time around the heart that Monica is holding (Monica Romances).

Monica? No… I didn’t name her, the House Mouse artist/creator Ellen Jareckie has named each mouse and they each have a distinctive feature… I’ll share more about that in a different post. So be on the lookout and thanks for reading - Jovi
