Johnny Downy Jr Freebie

Okay so this freebie is for 3 textured papers and an overlay inspired by two delicious photos of Johnny Depp and Robert Downey Jr. DID YOU SEE JOHNNY DEPP ON THE MTV MOVIE AWARDS? After seeing that perfect package of man walk across the stage (to a standing ovation) I was inspired. Then to top it off Robert Downy Jr was on too. Ooh I do enjoy looking at those two :-)

Desktop Calendar Freebie!

Life has been a little un-even since Hubby left for WestPac a couple weeks back. We haven't really gotten into a routine with the kids, our home up in Washington is in escrow (fingers crossed), we are moving out of the apartment and into a HOUSE in 30 days (!) and then to top it all off, I felt like my creative mojo got on the ship with hubby LOL.

Before he left, I had arrangements with Amie at Baubles-n-Scraps to become a member of her creative team so it helped give that little push and get rolling on the layouts again. So here it is.. In celebration of becoming a member of Baubles-n-Scraps Creative Team, I have made a Desktop Calendar for June that I would like to share :) . Its saved in easy to use PSD format in 1280x1024 . All the holidays on the calendar are noted & little known celebrations like... National Chocolate Ice Cream Day, E.T. Movie Premiered in 1982, Father's Day, Go Fishing Day, and Summer Solstice.

Here's what I did with it...

Finished Pages, PSE6 Sepia Tip, & Word Art Freebie

Finished layout I completed for the Candy Jar Challenge at Digital Candy but never found the time to upload.. (Doh!)

I was looking through the pages I completed for our trip to the San Diego Zoo and thought it could use just one more.. Used template by Andrea Gold and Two Soon Coordinated Kit by Shabby Princess. Notice the sepia behind her? I really wanted to have her "pop" out of the photo and found a trick for making Sepia Toned Photos by doing this...

1. Open your image in Photoshop Elements 6.

2. If the image is in color, go to Enhance -> Adjust Color -> Remove Color and skip to step 4.

3. If the image is in gray scale go to Image -> Mode -> RGB Color.

4. Go to Enhance -> Adjust Color -> Color Variations.

5. Move the Adjust Color Intensity slider down one notch less than the middle.

6. Click on Decrease Blue once.

7. Click on Increase Red once.

8. Click OK.

Photo taken of my husband and I at our baby shower for the twins. I was 24 weeks in this photo and it was exactly one month later that the twins were born. At first we thought 24 weeks was early for a baby shower but boy were we glad when the twins decided to make and early arrival :) Used the stunning elements and kit Avril chez Digi Scrapbook.

Finally the layout that inspired my word art freebie... Photo taken of my sister and I after a great lunch in Little Italy (San Diego, CA). Used Tangie Baxter's Merry Springtime kit, the RAKscraps freebie for April.

So now for the freebie...Download it here.

WOW! I think that's it (lol).
