When I saw that we were to use Julie O's "Feelin' Welcome" kit for this layout, my mind immediately free associated to Lady Liberty, the symbol of "Feelin' Welcome" to my parents & grandparents and countless other new immigrants over the years. Photographs were taken during my kids summer trip to NYC.

Kit is SAS Welcome Kit by JulieO http://www.stoneaccentsstudio.com/st...roducts_id=276

I like how you associated the Feelin Welcome kit with the historial reference to Lady Libery welcoming immigrants to America. Very thoughtful! I also like how you have the pictures peeking out from the border. The shadows seem a little heavy though.

JUDGE - I love how you put this together - your photo placement and size are perfect. I would lighten up your shadows quite a bit though and make the ones on the photos much smaller. The leaf one is the right size, but lighter would look more realistic I think. Other than those minor changes, it's a gorgeous layout.

I love how you tucked the photos in the torn paper border

JUDGE- I also love the layout of the page, but the shadows are much too dark. The shadow on the torn border needs to come down farther on the page. See at the bottom the shadow doesn't go all the way to the bottom of the page. You're off to a great start!

I agree about the shadows being too heavy, especiall on the "paper" elements (which includes the photos). If you put the shadows on their own layers, one way to handle this is to lower the opacity. Nnorcutt is correct, too, about the shadow on the torn paper not reaching the bottom - very observant and I almost missed it, sheesh!

The composition is lovely and I like this LO a lot - I'm a sucker for torn paper!

You guys are all gonna laugh when I tell you that I did this LO (and all my digital scrapbooking to date) in Print Shop... the dropped shadows were default... these were the smallest... I can make them less opaque or more or less diffuse.. but... not.. *smaller* LOL! I guess I can fiddle the opaque/diffuse settings & see if I get anything that looks better... As for the shadow on the torn strip not reaching the bottom.. I'm scratching my head over that one--- I used the exact same default shadow for all the elements... including the angle -- unless the program set the shadow for the angle the element was *originally* (which was horizontal) instead of the angle it is now? Then I'll have to fiddle the angle on that to get it to match in its current position.... Gosh..... playing with the "big kids"... :-)

Judge- Wonderful layout and great photos. I have to agree with the others though about the shadows. I don't know how to tell you to fix it though as I am not familiar with Print Shop. But I looked online to see if they have any kind of instruction manual. I don't know what version you have but according to what I read there is a manual within the program. Look at this link : http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art6373.asp . I hope this helps.

Judge: Great placement, but the dropshadows om the pictures are a little to big, specialy on the picture of the statue. Just play with them to see what looks right

I didn't know you could make LO's with print shop. All I ever did with it is make cards & newsletters.You are a very clever lady.

Love your association between Lady Liberty and the Feelin' Welcome kit. Great thinking. Terrific pics and pretty page.
