Happy St. Patty's Day (freebie)

Are you wearing green today? Cause if you're not, I'm coming to your house to pinch you! LOL! There are a few other things I'm celebrating today: it's Spring Break and I love having time with my kiddos, and I just found out I get to be a guest designer for the adorable new Jillibean Soup! If you haven't seen their stuff, you must check it out. Each line is based on a different soup, and the paper comes with a white and a kraft background. So cute!!

Well...you know me...I love celebrations! So, in honor of all the celebrations today I'm giving away a freebie layered .psd collage frame + title! I love photo collages, but sometimes it takes a while to measure everything out, and get the photo placement just right. But, with a pre-designed frame like this, it saves all that measuring time. As far as titles go, you could use "best friends" or "best buddies", or "best day"...you get the idea. All you have to do (in Photoshop) is place your photo over the layer of the block you want to put it in, and then "clip" it to that block by right-clicking on your photo layer and selecting "create clipping mask". Here's a hybrid page I did recently using this frame.CLICK HERE to download this layered .psd collage frame + title. Enjoy!!

Thanks for reminding to make sure my kids wear their funky headbands today. You know the $1.00 ones from Target. Great stuff as always aly. Come check out my fallen layout. It will be featured on another blog. Under their challenge use song lyrics. I plan on putting it on two peas.

LOVE the page, Aly!
Congrats on the guest design spot and yours was probably the 17th blog that talked about being "pinched" for not wearing green.
Do you believe I had never heard that until today?
What's up with that? lol
