Simple Pleasures

I have been trying to learn more about my Adobe Photoshop....and experiment with my photos. I learned recently, how to use the gradient tool and add text on top of that. I loved this photo of my son blowing bubbles with his cousin. (Alex's page is a couple of posts down.) I did my journaling right on the photo! I was so pleased with how it turned out! I used Noel Mignon's Hopscotch Kit. It has tons of yummy papers and embellishments in there! (There is only one left in her store.....so hurry!) This clear Hambly transparency was part of the kit and I wanted to make sure I didn't cover it up! OF course trying to photograph it was a bit tricky. This LO also fit Greta's and Simone's Scrap Your Crap challenge. You were to use multiple shaped papers on a LO.

Still with no car! 3 days....feels like 3 months! Hate the feeling of being stranded! I sure have walking a lot though....maybe I will lose a few pounds. I just found out that the mobility place never undercoated my van.....gee, could be why the entire underneath is a huge rusty mess! I need a limiting strap replaced, and there is still some question about the axle. The body shop is supposed to look at it tomorrow. (For those of you new to my blog, I have a ramp van for my disabled daughter). So......maybe I will get the car back tomorrow......

I am so sorry about your van...especially because it is not like you can just go get any old rental and it will work....I hope it gets fixed SOON!
