I would love to join.
But can't figure out what time it is at my place. Where is the best place to look?

And I must see if it fits, because I have to go to a concert first from Cold Play

j_camargo6
09-09-2009, 09:38 AM
The concert sounds like tons of fun, Nance!

You can check the time out HERE (http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/) on the world clock.....

Hope you can make it!

Nance47
09-09-2009, 10:04 AM
I'll try to make it. Looks like it's night over here. But that's no problem.
Only I'm not sure to use EST New York or EST Coral Harbor. It makes a difference in time.

j_camargo6

I think New York....somebody tell me if I'm wrong, LOL

09-10-2009, 05:53 PM
LOL, Lisa! It's lots of fun!

Well, guys, my challenge tonight is to find a place for my EHD and my cords because right now the cord hangs down far enough that the puppies are unplugging it. They're running wild and free, building up enough speed to get under a person's foot and trip them. This is one of the things they must perfect before moving onto a new home. Once they disrupt my computer during a speed scrap AND make me fall flat on my face, we'll have a few more boxes checked off on their development charts.

They're only 4 inches tall. I never can understand how they can get into all they do....

You'll receive a prompt every ten minutes for the next hour. Use them as a guide (but don't be afraid to employ "artistic interpretation"!!)

Once we're done with the prompts, you'll have 1 hour to finish up your layout, upload it to the gallery and post back in this thread!

Any questions?

j_camargo6

1. Use One paper
2. take your three pictures (or one picture duplicated). Use the same photo effect on all three. You're going to make them 3 sizes...a small rectange/square, a medium rectangle/square, and a large rectangle/square (your largest is going to be around 4x5). Position them with the large and small photo on one side (hanging off the side of the layout) and the medium one on the other side (hanging off the side of the layout).

Excellent! I was thinking of using a mask, too, but PI says "insufficient memory" when I try to do that. I have plenty of memory, but it seems to be a Vista/PI issue. (I don't have the latest version--UGH!)

as if invading my space wasn't enough of an affront, now he is recalibrating his speakers and I am being bombarded with blips of LOUD static, gunshots, POUNDING and other equally annoying noises -- which are not just annoying me, but the dogs are flipping out. It is like being trapped in a padded room with a sound effects disc on full blast

Yeah, I closed the program again and got back in again, so then it worked right. Kinda funny, because you do have to tell men things more than once sometimes, right? So I guess PI is like a man. Does anyone else's DH fail to listen to them sometimes?

Yeah, I closed the program again and got back in again, so then it worked right. Kinda funny, because you do have to tell men things more than once sometimes, right? So I guess PI is like a man. Does anyone else's DH fail to listen to them sometimes?

Sometimes? LOL....I have to say it two or three times before he UNDERSTANDS what I'm saying and actually listens, then 7 or 8 more times before he actually says he'll do it...we won't count how many times then before he actually gets it done...and he says I'm a NAG (it's in the job description, isn't it?)

1. Use One paper
2. take your three pictures (or one picture duplicated). Use the same photo effect on all three. You're going to make them 3 sizes...a small rectange/square, a medium rectangle/square, and a large rectangle/square (your largest is going to be around 4x5). Position them with the large and small photo on one side (hanging off the side of the layout) and the medium one on the other side (hanging off the side of the layout).
3. use some sort of embellishment underneath your photos to call attention to them. It can be a frame, a splatter, etc. Reuse this element in other areas if desired.
4. layer flowers and leaves underneath your photos, and along the sides of the layout.
5. use lace or trim, or strips of papers in, around and/or underneath your flowers/leaves and photos
6. Use strings, bows, AND jewels in your clusters. (if you're doing a boy page, find something else to use in the place of the bows and jewels, if you want)

My layout is very, very late ... I guess I'm not much at Speed Scrappin' yet! My normally peaceful home turned into chaos last night ... go figure! Anyhoo ... here's what I came up with ... not my proudest moment! ;-)

However, I felt it was only fair to put it out there ...

I'm still learning. I don't have a clue about options for "photo techniques" like blending and masking. I need to find a good class to show me how. I just got PSE7 about a month or so ago ... I was using DIP ... but I have only been digi scrappin since April. Gotta lot to learn ... but the journey has been FUN so far!

Thanks,
Lisa

BUMMER!

A friend conned me into "attending" a webinar with her last night at the same time -- but she wouldn't have been able to do that if I had remembered. I had set up a reminder for the event through the site reminders option BUT it sent me the reminder sometime Wednesday night instead of 2 hours before the event like I had requested.
I know I won't get the "participation" goodie -- which is okay -- but is there a place where I can find out what the prompts were so I can try this LO "plan" anyhow? (I wanted to participate because it sounded fun more than to get the goodies.)

I had set up a reminder for the event through the site reminders option BUT it sent me the reminder sometime Wednesday night instead of 2 hours before the event like I had requested.
I know I won't get the "participation" goodie -- which is okay -- but is there a place where I can find out what the prompts were so I can try this LO "plan" anyhow? (I wanted to participate because it sounded fun more than to get the goodies.)

Here are the seven prompts
1. Use One paper
2. take your three pictures (or one picture duplicated). Use the same photo effect on all three. You're going to make them 3 sizes...a small rectange/square, a medium rectangle/square, and a large rectangle/square (your largest is going to be around 4x5). Position them with the large and small photo on one side (hanging off the side of the layout) and the medium one on the other side (hanging off the side of the layout).
3. use some sort of embellishment underneath your photos to call attention to them. It can be a frame, a splatter, etc. Reuse this element in other areas if desired.
4. layer flowers and leaves underneath your photos, and along the sides of the layout.
5. use lace or trim, or strips of papers in, around and/or underneath your flowers/leaves and photos
6. Use strings, bows, AND jewels in your clusters.
7. pick a word that describes the "face/faces you love" and use it in and around your clusters, at least (but not limited to) 2 times.

you can also find them here is this post:

WOW! Wish I'd made it to "the event" -- looks like it was as much fun as I thought it might be. Well, I found the prompts and here is my late entry:

THANK YOU! It was tons of fun using the prompts -- wish I'd actually made it to "The Event" -- the chatter was fun to read through, too. :)

The webinar was basically a typical Web2.0 over-priced scam -- but, having said that, there was a little bit of useable info in there. Myabe wasn't a total waste of time. (My friend also "conned" [lol] me into doing more than editing her novel -- she wants a total collaboration -- and the webinar was on a system for writing a book, and copyrighting it, within 8 hours. She was curious how that can be done ... LOL ... might work for what the webinar was about but not for storytelling books ...**sigh**)

Here is the link to a re-do of my original posted layout. I took some of the ladies' suggestions and changed my title color and tilted a photo on the right in a different direction. I appreciate their suggestions because I was not at all happy with my layout. Just wanted them to see the changes I made.

I hated the original version from 9-10 so much that I just had to redo it. I didnít add anything new to it, nor did I remove anything. I just resized and changed the placement of the parts. Hopefully I will sleep tonight and not lay awake thinking about how awful it was the first time.
