Don't miss out - we'll have lots of fun & I'll have a great prize for all who participate and post a layout in time! Meet me in the chatroom! (Instructions will also be added to this thread as we go!)

.................................................. ...............
WE ARE IN THE CHATROOM! :D

Here we go with tonight's instructions:
Step 1: Select a photo of someone and do a quick extract of it . IF YOU NEED HELP with this, I have a super easy "cheat" to help you out :D
Select the eraser tool, select a very large, very soft round brush [200-300px], erase around outline of object & over any other background

Step 2: Select 2 papers. Place one on top of the other and tilt it a little. Place your photo on top.

Step 3: Place a few swirls or decorative shapes between your two paper layers & let them show at the edges.

Step 4: Add a scatter or splatter to your page, and some wordart or text.

Step 5: Use a window or frame element somewhere on your page and accent it with an embellishment or two.

Step 6: Add a title and/or journaling. You can add an additional embellishment or two to the page, and don't forget to add some nice shadows to your page elements! :)

.................................................

Now post your layouts in the gallery within 1 hour from now (by 11pmEST/8pmPST) , then post your finished, linked layout in the SS thread. Be sure you also check out the other SS pages & leave some love, too! :D

Tomorrow morning, I'll send out a PM, to all who post a layout within one hour of the end of our scrap tonight, with a link & coupon code for this "Love Accents" pack that won't even be listed in my shop till next week! :)

Fantastic pages ladies! Love seeing all that creativity! Thanks again for playing! (Oh, and all 7 giant pizzas got baked and driven over to the church just in time for two dozen college kids! Plus, we surprised my son with a birthday cake for his 25th bd tonight! Great time! :D)

me too!! I remembered with 20 minutes to go and then I got distracted because my older brother called me. I was shocked because he has never called me but lately he's been coming back into the family and being "normal"....long story, but it's good news for the family.
