    Question regarding the contest... does the page need to be strictly from Scrapbook Max page art and embellishments. I have several scrapbooking programs that have graphics I'd like to use..but don't want to enter them in the contest, if I would be disqualified. Please respond ASAP.

    Hey, Kasr
    To find the sizing..simply go to FILE>PUBLISH>IMAGES..when the box pops up you have 3 things you can do ..Take care of the BROWSE..It is already set by default to send your image to the PUBLISHED folder in SBM. Study that link because you need to go there to retrieve it.
    Then look at the SIZE scroll down. Click the down arrow and choose web/email at the bottom of scroll down..Then look left at the QUALITY box..It should have FULL or HIGH QUALITY in the box. HIGH QUALITY is what you want. Then hit OK..and it will send to PUBLISH FOLDER. Now..Go to GALLERY to upload by pressing on January Contest tab.UPLOAD photo.Follow instruct. ONce posted..CLick top bar and COPY your URL address and paste that into your posted reply here. Good luck girl!!! Look forward to seeing it!!

    Default d27 Fisher's Retirement

    Here's my entry. Tried something new by creating a SHAPE for the outline of the page using our SBM program. Submitted tutorial if you want to learn that process in embellishments section. That gave the punched window look. I wanted to highlight Fisher and Johns faces but came out looking like I cut off their heads..by making another shape with circles over the picture...Enclosed pictures to show.
    As for content..My son John is autistic. Life was a real struggle taking him to stores, guarding him from desire to escape through the front door and run out into street, etc..WAITED two years for Fisher...Long process for dogs to go through..$10,000 dog given through donations. Fisher could follow 53 commands by the time we got him. Much better than my kids!! Life changed dramatically. John would hold to the harness and I'd have Fisher's leash. It was hard not to treat fisher like a PET..He kept John safe just by his presence and John knew that FIsher was HIS dog. Fisher is officially retired as of last year. 10 years old. Sleeps next to John almost every night..but having knee troubles now. The goals were accomplished to help John TALK..the 53 commands were very motivating to John. Then socialize..You can imagine all the folks who wanted to pet the "Seeing Eye DOG" (they thought)..but would fuss and try to not allow us in the stores when they realized John was not blind..I had to hold my ground with Walmart a few times and WON but the battles were hard..we had to break the NORM for service dogs and what they are good for. John not only came out of his AUTISTIC world but also became more aware of everything around him and interested. Fisher is the only thing John hugs without prompting. John has done so well over the years with his disability. We won't replace Fisher with another SERVICE dog when he goes. The need is not there anymore.Now all our dogs will be PETS.
    Used Fisher's dog tags for embellishments and made a dog bone shape for tag also. Used Nanac's thumbtack. http://www.scrapbookmax.com/gallery/...=6635&cat=1349

    What a wonderful story about your sons dog. I had never heard of using dogs this way. I am so glad that he helped your son and will live out his days with him.They must have a very close bond. Dogs are truly Mans Best Friends.

    Wow - what an incredible story and journey you have been on. It makes such sense that a dog could help an autistic child in this way. Their love is unconditional......I just love your story and your layout!
