Challenge 5: Virtual Crop

Why is it that day’s like today go by so fast?

Are you having FUN?  Have you used a technique on your projects that made you “step out of your box”?

We have had a fabulous group of ladies that contributed to this Virtual Crop, and we would like to thank them for sharing their time and talents with us.  THANK YOU!

Hope you had the opportunity to stop and refuel with some lunch at some point as well.

Let’s face it–we need the fuel (or chocolate) to keep the creativity flowing.

Tips for creating this digital layout:

  • I used the Burnt Orange ABC to make my title on this page and resized the letters fit the space for the title.
  • I copied and pasted the boot on this page to make a pair of boots.
  • The stitched border was made by inserting a straight path line and in the program that I use to scrapbook.  You can choose your colour and the pattern you like for the page.  I also can choose the size or width of the stitch lines.
