Yesterday I did this really cool tutorial by Cassie Jones (DD). She had a chat on Monday (I think) and I missed the first half. Now if you have ever tried to follow a Cassie chat and work on it at the same time, you know that it's really hard. At least I got to snatch up the freebie and then finally did it last night. It was really easy to follow and understand (I can say that now, when I first started with digi last winter, I didn't understand half of the instructions, I just did them) Here is the LO I did with it!

At the Spraground our weekly challenge was to use a template by Timounette. I always liked her stuff, hadn't been to her blog in a while though, so I spent a lot of time downloading LTs and kits. It seems that I do a lot of that lately anyway, there are so many talented people out there who are willing to simply share what they create. Anyway, I got that one done, posted it at DD and got a comment from Tinounette, thanking me for using her LT. I thought that was so cute. She must have recognized it right away. Here is the page

That's pretty much everything from around here. Jana from the Spraground sent me Jessica's Computer Tricks #1, because I have been unable to find it. She refused to let me pay for it, saying it was a gift. That was so sweet of her, I can't believe she did that. It just arrived today and I took a fast look at some stuff. I am itching to try some of it, I always like to learn new things and she is so good. I don't know where people get all their great ideas! I look at some pages and can't believe how wonderful they are. Oh well, we just keep trying!

I have another tutorial from Cassie that comes from a chat. That one I actually participated in, got about 3/4 way through and then got lost. Well, I have the pdf all printed and I really want to play with that some tonight yet. It's on creating custom clipping mask using brushes and the marquee and eraser tool. It really was fun and the results were great! If I get something done, I will post it later.

Of course, today is DD's weekly sale, so I still have to head over there and see what they have. I feel like a kid at Christmas! We'll see how far we get tonight, the family requires some of my attention too!

Hab aber als erstes gleich auf deine Seite geschaut: deine Layouts werden immer toller - WOW! Ich hoffe, dass ich bald Zeit habe, mir alles in Ruhe und genau anzusehen.
