new banner...

i have been playing today in photoshop. i hate that the free trial is going to run out because i'm learning a ton! and it's so expensive! oh well. i had fun making my new banner. the elements are from sue cummings and house of 3. i just wish it didn't take hours! i start messing around with it and the next thing i know, 3 hours has gone by!!

oh well!

my friend christie is hosting an excellent "think outside of the box" kind of swap. it's making christmas atcs using non-traditional colors. it was definitely a challenge! i started picking my colors, then realized it was looking very halloween-ish! one of the papers is actually halloween paper! i wasn't sure about them, but i like how they turned out.
