I've been kind of absent from scrapping and blogging because my sister is in the hospital and I've spent a lot of time visiting her. Went to visit her tonight because she asked me to, but after a short visit asked us to leave because she was mad at her nurse because the nurse wouldn't let her shower, so came home and have been happily scrapping away. I've tried a technique I found at Scrapbook Ideas on blending a photo into the background. Let me know if you like it.
Supplies used include papers and embellishments from Verena Karolyi's "You Are Beautiful" kit, including paper 4, diamond04, and tag; scrap frames 2 12X12 Clusters from Cottagearts.net; font Charlemagne Std, and Photoshop CS3 (my first layout with my new software).
