Digital Scrapbooking


My husband gave me a belated anniversary gift last week:) He's so romantic and knows exactly what his wife loves-♥ Adobe Elements-Photoshop. I set it up on my lap-top, and have tried to play with it for days. I've watched Youtube videos to try and figure this new program out...but it's not falling into place yet. My fifteen year old-Nascar, (on the other hand) has been taking computer classes at school. He opened up the program and created a banner for me right away! I was in utter amazement:) "How did you do that?", I kept saying. He just smiled and said, "You'll catch on soon Mom-don't worry". Then he found a picture of my Grandma, and put her sweet face on Starwars body. He's a computer genius with a weird sense of humor.

Photoshop is great. That is how I make my backgrounds. The #1 trick that I learned is that to move one page onto another. You use the V key click on the item then shift and v. Good luck. Go to shabby princess and download some cool paper and ribbons and make one.

You will get the hang of it by just playing around. It takes a while. I am only a phone call away if I can help. Your son probably knows more then I do though.

Like the new banner as well! I remember when my kids learned stuff in school about the computer and then came home and did it on my computer. When asked how did you do that..they wouldn't tell me!
