Default Re: LOA Contest Week 3:

Finished Page:

Before Picture:

For the photo I really only liked Sophia's picture- it's hard to get three kids to take a good picture together! Also, I found the background to be way too busy so I used PSE 10 to enlarge, crop and magic extract to pull out just the portion of the photo I wanted. I then used the Photoshop Action PW Boost by Pioneer Woman to enhance the photo. I then created a blank page colored the same green as the stripes in the QP "My Christmas Carol" by Lynn Griffin. I layered the Photo onto the green page in order to focus on Sophia and not the background, then I added it to the QP. Once I was satisfied with size and placement of Sophia's picture I added Text to the QP, and then used PSE Styles Cherry Cardstock1 Brown (Just So Scrappy) and Style 21 (Booland).
