Now that's what I call a challenge!!!!
Gotta think this over. I think it will be fun to try this, but I've never done any designing before, so I'll probably won't be any good, lol.

Hmm, reading these I'm curious - will the person in most need win? Or the best? Or ummm, the person who knits the best maybe? ahahahaha!!! Anyway, I'm in. I have all day Saturday (today) to mess around on the computer, so I'm happy to give it a go. The Design Academy sounds great - I do have one question about it, and will PM you Sherah, but will also ask here in case others wonder. The class description says good for Photoshop and PSP, but would somebody who uses PSE be able to get enough out of it to make it worth the $60? And/or do you have "workarounds" for PSE for some few things that would need them? Okay, thanks, going off to see what little mini I can come up with!

I started DDA with PSE and still use it for alot of my designs. There are workarounds and with some styles you can make it work for you. Later on, I did buy CS4 when I started designing more things, but my first kit--Beginnings was made with PSE6. I think it was well worth the $60 to start out and Sherah is great helping you with work arounds!! I can even help too. :-)

05-24-2010, 04:18 PM
I've never done any designing before, so this is my first attempt. I found out three things:
* Designing takes up a lot of time, spent three evenings working on this, LOL
* 7 elements is way to less, wanted to make so much more
* yeah.....this is FUN!!!


So here is my first minikit. I'm sure it's full of mistakes, but who cares, I loves creating it!!!


http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=58310&title=garden-of-joy&cat=1117

Thank you so much Sherah for doing this challenge. I wanted to try some designing for a long time now, but never came around to it. You gave me just the right push. So I don't mind if I win or not (would be fun though, LOL), I'm sure I'm gonna do this more often!!
