Look what I can do!

Last week I used a template to create an altered cd tin layout I gave to Rob for Father's Day. This week I realized just how much I love using the templates and how easy they are to make. So I started going through the scrapbooking magazines looking for good layouts to turn into templates. This was practice, and is actually borrowed from the pagemaps layouts. Here it is as a grayscale template.

And here it is turned into a two-page layout. These are photos from last year's 4th of July fest on base.

Lizy, if you're interested I can show you how to do this and you can use it as an intermediate digital scrapbooking course. Of course, you can probably figure this out on your own! Oh, and Rob found the drop shadows effect, so if you haven't found that yet I'll show you.

I also figured out how to make things look like they have a layer of glossy accents, or a page pebble on top. But that was the last thing I did tonight and I don't have anything to sample it yet.

Those are so cool...though it seems a little like cheating. ;P

The sample book you brought in to the store looks really great, but then, you did it, so of course it looks great. :)

Kelly that is great! You have become a little scapper... You have to teach me how to create them and how to create a two page digi lo.
