Bits and Bobs for Skip

Well yesterday was along day. Ballet was lovely, my daughter just loves to dance and perform, she is a total ham. We ended up going out to dinner with friends and I had a glass of champagne which made me VERY sleepy LOL. So I didn't get back to post the flowers. So the things I have been learning and playing with that are included in this downoad are:

how to make "sticker" style letters with borders (one of the marvelous Misty Cato's tutorials),
I included a second one (not shown on preview) that was my first attempt I don't like it as much but hey someone else might

how to make some photo corners - I figured this one out on my own LOL, I really do love just basic photo corners to provide a frame or anchor something (I have done them in all the skip colours)

making some oversized brads (but they can easily be resized to itsy ones too) I just used the paper patterns I had done

how to make a chipboard alpha - this was sort of a growth from the other alpha tute - I had to scan in some plain chipboard first so I could share it, I stuck some paper on the front and peeled some off (I am learning how to "sand" the paper off for the run one I am doing in the circle paper)

I made a rub-on frame in 4 x 6 dimension with the footprints - and (drumroll please) I managed to turn it into a brush. Now I know that for the very clever designers out there this is no big deal - but I actually found the hardest part was saving it into its own abr file so I could share it. I have only been using PSE since February and only really have got to play lots in the last fortnight - so bare with me here LOL. I used DIP in January to make my m-i-l's scrapbook and that was tricky enough.

Okay I have rambled enough - download link is here - please let me know what you think or hints on how to improve.
Have a great weekend - we are off to a friend's surprise 50th tonight, my hubby is diving all weekend so we have to wait for him to get home first.

Best wishes,
Erika
