    Beautiful picture TinTin Loving the layout too! Also, I don't think they do that anymore.... I had actually forgot about that with the televisions. Seems so long ago, or perhaps I am getting too old? lol

    Here is my page. I used the kit Michelle sent us for the Challenge, Hope for Brady's dog, and then Grungy Guys.

    I just noticed the note on the right side is blurry, they kids are asking if they should have hidden the puppy too?

    Thank you for the challenge Michelle. It was a challenge for me just to decide what colors I wanted to use, then I changed my layout and decided to use purple as my main color because it is my best friend's favorite color. I added a little yellow and white. Here is my layout.

    Hey Dillie - as usual, one of my favs.....here is my question though - How do you get different colour in one embie...when I use the dropper, it colours the whole thing. Share your secrets!!!
    Somewhere in all the madness lies the beauty within

    Thanks TinTin!!

    Now I probably do it the long way, so if some else has any ideas please share. But what I do:
    1) make two copies of the same embie
    2) then color both with different colors
    3) overlay each of the embies
    4) click on the top embie and erase what you don't want, for example in the butterfly I erased half of the butterfly
    5) Make sure everything is lined up so I don't see any color from the bottom element, if I do, I just
    erase the opposite side of the bottom embie.
    7) Sometimes if you use shadows, then I might turn off the top layer shadow, like I did in the butterflies. However the flower I kept the shadow on both layers.
    6) line them up and you have a two toned element.

    I hope I explained it OK, if not please ask.

    Thanks again Tin Tin! Have a great weekend!

    I do it the same way Dillie! Don't think there's a short cut.
    My God, you've got your blending down to a fine art!!! How do you get such soft edges around the outter picture like that? Is it the Transparency bar that you play with on the eraser tool or the softness bar? When I'm blending, I put my eraser to a circle shape, put it to it's softest and then somewhere in the middle for transparency, but it never comes out as good as this... maybe it's the shape of the photo you used?? Again.. like Tina said 'please share your secrets' LOL

    Thanks Kel--this one I discovered by accident. But to tell you the truth I never used the eraser, I will have to try that.
    Sorry Michelle, hope this isn't taking away from your challenge

    1) I use the photo insert from page 2 of the Garden Path, but any insert that has a soft edge will do.
    2) Copy and paste the insert to the page your are working on and bring in your photo
    3) Now you might have to open the crop and readjust your photo
    4) I then use the transparency bar to adjust the photo--it's how you want it to look
    5) You will see lines around your edges of the photo you are working, if you don't want them, just save this as a PNG file to your desk top or wherever you want to save it.
    6) Go to your change picture and bring in your PNG. This will erase the lines that you may have and give you a nice clean look around the photo
    7) That's it, happy scrapping. Let me know if you have any questions.

    As always, I may take the long way around, so if anyone has a different way of blending, let us know.
