Goodbye PSP, hello PS CS3!!

After only a month of lessons and tutorials with Andrea Gold from Godigitalscrapbooking, I am doing my LO's with PS CS3, which I got a few months ago, and thought I would never be able to learn how to use it. I absolutely love all the short cuts, the actions and the fact that I can scrap 3600 x 3600 LO's, which I could not do in PSP as it was just too slow. I had to resize everything to fit onto my 800 x 800 LO, losing a lot of quality in the process. PS is fantastic in that it loses no quality when resizing to web size! I still have so much to learn, this is only the begining. I am also learning how to design using it, so my next freebie will be all done in PS!! (In a few days!)

Here are some of my LO's scrapped with PS!

This one was done using one of Bonnie's new Kits, Down at the Bottom of the Garden. Bonnie also has some freebies on her blog so go and check them out!

I am very proud to say that 2 of my LO's made it to Gallery standouts at DST last week!! This one was done using KimB's awesome new Kit. Lovable, available HERE. If you haven't been to Kims blog,she has awesome freebies up almost every day, and a fantastic grab bag full of commercial use products up in the middle of this week that you cannot miss,it is real value for money.

This LO was done for my Challenge at Snap and Scrap and Digital Candy.

I am back -and my first freebie for 2008!!

Hello everyone -and a happy new year to you all! I can't believe it is over a month ago that I last blogged! We returned from a wonderful vacation on 5 December, but I have been so hectically busy getting my life back in order with piles of washing etc, catching up on neglected CT stuff and, getting 2 kids back to school, and one to a new job!

Our vacation was brilliant, beautiful hot weather, and not much wind. One of the highlights was meeting some of the ladies from Snap & Scrap. We had lunch at the beautiful Vergelegen Wine Estate in Somerset West, an afternoon with much laughter and a few glasses of wine! I still have so many pictures to scrap, but here is one that I have managed to do! And some photos!

This was created using Nina Scrap Designs available at Oscraps - credits here

Some photos of the girls at Snap & Scrap - none of me- I was behind the camera!

This is Mari - owner of Snap and Scrap- I am also on her personal CT, so it was so great to meet her eventually!!

I still have hundreds of holiday photos to scrap, a few I have done:
