Photoshop Elements

I've been wanting to break into the digital scrapbooking world for a while, but it is nerve-racking trying to figure it out.  In fact, I've harassed several of my followers for a tutorial on how to use Photoshop Elements.  One night (when I'm sure I should have been writing my dissertation), I decided to bite the bullet and give it a try.  Ironically, I actually liked how it turned out.  So, I've now created a recipe card and a grocery shopping list too.  Here is the grocery shopping list.

I'm hoping to add my recipe cards weekly as I try new recipes.  It is a goal of mine for the year to get my recipes organized digitally...we'll see how that goes.

Anyway, as I devoured the web trying to learn as much as possible about Photoshop, I stumbled across an AMAZING blog.  Summer creates free digital scrapbooking packs at Summertime Designs.  Although her designs and kits are free, she does have a spot for you to contribute to her blog (considering she is doing this while also juggling four would probably be beneficial to contribute to the creativity juices).  Also, Summer is super speedy at answering any questions or checking out your designs.  I've kind of become a stalker of her site.  Anyway, she says it is okay for me to share my designs with you.

Also, this is the first time I've used this service to upload documents.  So, if you try to download the grocery list and it doesn't work...let me know.

  2. Alyssa... I am busy catchin up on your blog and seriously girl... I feel like such a slob! Yes, yes, I work hard during the week at my real job (the one that I receive a salary at) but reading about your projects just really makes me feel useless. I going to make it a priorit to do something useful, really useful, or helpful or something that is just enjoyable. I can't wait to see upon your return to Georgia.

  3. In my job for a cooking software company I study blogs and one of the happy parts of this assignment is finding great sites like yours. I am so glad I found this! I just finished my MA in Education--you have my respect and applause! I was interested in your shopping list stuff. Without sounding like an infomercial, I wanted to tell you about this company’s cookbook software that’s simplified my life a ton. FINALLY I can find what I need, when I need it, without having to scour through boatloads of recipes and books! (I’ve included the link in case you are interested.) Finally, thanks so much for a great blog—I love your information and how reader-friendly your site is!
