We're back!!

Well, we're back from our 2-week vacation! We had a great time and we'll post a report and family update as soon as we get unpacked and do some laundry. (Yep...back to life.) Here's a page I cranked out this morning...couldn't help it...2 weeks without scrapping, yikes! I love Ali Edwards' new digital products at designerdigitals.com. That photo is from the fireworks show we watched in Park City. I used the fireworks setting on my camera and a tripod...really helped to get some good shots. Can't wait to scrap more!

I created the word art on the photo in photoshop by creating several text boxes with different words using the same font (Arial). But...I changed several things about the font: size, opacity, italics, bold, kerning (space between the letters), caps, lowercase, etc. Then I merged them all together by simplifying, or rasterizing, the type layers so I could edit the word art as a single layer. Give it a try!

Hey Aly!

I know next to nothing about digital scrapbooking, but my cousin-in-law is a big time mover and shaker in the industry. Do you know her (or her products)? She's super nice--thought you might be interested.
