Third and last try! CanDesigns- I tried to fix the shadow. Unfortunately, my program only has limited capability with shadows. I use fotofusion's lumapix, which I love for many reasons, but it doesn't have photoshop's extensive capabilities. I hope this one is better!
This is a picture of my "niece" (my cousin's daughter) who is completely adorable. As I have a love of fantasy, faeries etc., the layout reflects my interest. I wanted to add that Brenda Mascari's water lilies were the "inspiration" for this layout. I just LOVED the element and had to use it!
I used a number of different elements and papers from the SAS-y designers. Credit as follows:
Darker Grass: Booland Design's "Artisan Gardens" This is free in the store! Thank you so much!
Lighter Grass and grass paper: Lara's DigiWorld "Bits of Mallorca" This is a beautiful blog freebie! Thanks Lara!
Sky paper, butterfly, water paper and fairy wings: JulieO's "Water Color Dreams"
This is a blog freebie- there are tons of freebies on Julie's site! Thank you!
Water Lilies: BrendaMascari's "WaterLillies" - add on to DAD . You can find this at Brenda's blog: Digital Creations from Millstream Cottage- and I think this element is just gorgeous!
Sparkles: From the Sas-y August Mega Kit "Summer Daze". This sampler can be found on Julie's site here:
