Scrapping Last Week - 30 April - 6 May

This layout is a digital one because there is a long panaroma photo on it.  It was nice getting to make a digital layout and trying to get used to using my new Photoshop Elements 13.  Previously I was using Photoshop Elements 8 and the difference is very noticeable.  So not only have I not used PSE for a few years and I'm rusty but this new version is different too.  I've decided I will have to spend some time creating more digital layouts to get used to PSE again.
I am pleased that I found a tutorial on how to round the photo corners and I figured out how to use some of the elements that were part of My Digital Studio (Stampin' Up!'s software to do digital work) in PSE.  The date label came in a MDS software and had coloured ends so I worked out how to remove the colours and make it transparent.  The chevrons was originally just one chevron & it was coloured.  I was very pleased to work out how to remove the colour, make it transparent & then create a group of 5 of them to form an element that I could then clip my background paper too.

The journalling this week is nearly all Facebook posts.

Yikes it's windy out there. Driving the boys to school this morning and there was a loud bang on the windscreen, apparently it was an acorn hitting it.

James Criglington had his first badminton practice yesterday. Apparently it went well & he was told he's not too bad at badminton for a first timer. He's in the junior Christ's College team playing at number 4. He's really happy about it and I think he is enjoying doing a new sport that he has never done before. His first match will be next Wednesday so it will be interesting to hear what he thinks of it after having played a serious match.
