Layout - Misty Cato's Tutorial

For those that haven't seen it yet, Misty Cato has a fantastic tutorial on her blog about blending photos into the background paper ( I have been using Misty's tutorials (along with Shauna's and a few others) to slowly educate myself about PSE. As soon as I saw the background paper she used and the position of the blend I thought of this piccie of my darling daughter at the beach recently so set out to have a go. After a few emails with Misty - because I am a TOTAL luddite - I got it to work and this is the result. So far LOL. I am probably going to expand to a two page LO, and add my journalling. But I was really pleased with the result.
The background paper is one of Misty's, and I used the sand overlay that I created for the Bargara kit (I erased it to just be in the corner), the ribbon from Bargara, plus a flower of mine that I will upload later if anyone wants it. Oh and the brad in the flower is one of the shell ones I made for that kit also. My only regret is that hideous tatoo on her arm from a party the weekend before that would not wash off LOL
Off to read to the kids - we are in the middle of Enid Blyton's Magic Faraway Tree ! Will post more VHC stuff tomorrow and that flower if anyone wants it just let me know.

Best wishes,

This is great! Did you consider photoshop-ing out the tattoo? Might work. Thanks for the plain papers and the frames, too.

I was just about to say you should photoshop out the tattoo, but terebene beat me to it!! Have a great weekend Erika.
