Yes, blogger is giving me the run around again - taking forever to upload my pics, but I'm just glad I got this element up for you. I've seen in stores where you can have your photo printed onto a plate, so I figured hey, I can do that digitally! I liked the little flowers so I have just cut out the center area for you to slip your picture into. The download does not come w/ a drop shadow, so you have to add your own.

I spent yesterday morning at Miles school. I'm volunteering to help students learning to scrapbook - mostly with Photoshop Elements 4. I hope I will be a help, but yesterday made me aware that I can also be a hinderence, if I am not careful. See, I love Digital Scrapbooking SO MUCH that I can be a tad overwhelming at times - and it happened yesterday for sure.

I was spending time showing a woman around PSE4, SBB, ACOT and well, everywhere, and the entire time I was doing this she would insert little questions to me. Questions like "Do you spend a lot of time on your computer" - that kinda thing and of COURSE I do... Turns out, all these questions I was asking her, she was using how I answered to make the decision if she would take a course. See, I guess I could consider myself an advanced user at this time, and I guess, what comes easily to me looks like greek to others. They just can't imagine themselves doing it. So I have to be careful to show what they COULD do, not what I MYSELF can do.

But I was also blessed to spend time to show a young woman around too - and she just ate up every word that came out of my mouth. You could see the wonder in her eyes, and it gives me resolve to teach her everything I know.

I thank God for the ability to share the knowledge I am blessed with.

Candle Holder Tip

To prevent the wax from melting and sticking to the inside of a votive candle holder, pour a bit of water in the holder, then place the candle on top. If you forgot the water and there's wax stuck to your candle holder, pop it in the freezer for an hour. The wax will chip right off.


  1. Before I learned the freezer tip w/ candles... a friend of mine used to boil her items, and the wax would come off - so I did that. WHAT A MESS! I'm so glad I learned the freezer bit! Saved me hours of cleaning up after taking the wax out of the candle holders!

  2. Sorry you are having so much trouble with your photos. Thanks for the plate frame. It is beautiful.

  3. well girl you are so talented and so willing to share ...and you have the ability to turn people on to Scrapbooking ..wish I was one of those people so close to be able to learn and have some of your time...


Your comments are a blessing to me!
