CLICK HERE to download the desktop :) hope you like it...had fun creating it - that's for sure! it's 1024x768 @ 72dpi...as after some research - it appears that is the most widely used screen resolution :) it's not MY screen resolution - lol - but i made it work on mine...just have to work with some of the settings on your desktop. i work at a much higher resolution - so this is centered nicely on my desktop and looks so cute - LOL! of course - the one you are downloading does NOT have the ice cream pics in it...it is a .png file format with two 'windows' for your photos! so - just add those in...save as a .jpg and then follow these INSTRUCTIONS (they are borrowed - but VERY well done and quite detailed in case you need help) for setting as your desktop background! ENJOY :)
for the blog drawing - i think i have taken care of all of the gift cards and kits...except for one that i'm still waiting to hear back on :) so THANKS AGAIN!
and here is something i have been wanting to share for some time now - LOL :) my sweet friend LANNE told me about these FABULOUS actions called TOTALLY RAD and she was so excited about them...and showed me some before/afters...and i TOTALLY (lol) had to have them! now...first let me say - they are NOT cheap...and you DO need some knowledge of layer masks to be able to effectively use them...BUT if you can afford them (or save up - LOL) and have the know-how or desire to learn about layer masks...you should check them out! and even if you don't want the actions - you HAVE to check out their GORGEOUS photography...go HERE and click on weddings! so artistic and beautiful and full of color and feeling! LOVE THEM and find it all so inspring! but - MOSTLY happy that they decided to share their talent and art with us in the form of actions - LOL!
So - here are some of my before/afters! these photos were taken a couple of years ago on a sony camera before i had a DSLR. the pics were dark and lacked any 'pop'! i used the TOTALLY RAD actions on them...as well as an Itty Bitty color action (love these as well)! and you can see that with the help (immense help - LOL) of these actions...my BLAH photos turned into WOW photos (well - at least to ME - LOL)! best of all...it literally took like 30 seconds to go from before to after...and just a few mouse clicks! WONDERFUL! gotta love that :)
anyway - that's just one (or two - lol) example of how they have helped me!!! if i come across anymore great before/afters - i'll be sure to share them! i WISH i could say that i ALWAYS took perfect pics...but the truth is that i DO NOT - lol! they often need tweaking...or LOTS of tweaking...and i love having tools on hand to make that simple :) so - i am forever grateful to LANNE for passing the info on to me!!!!
new kits...coming next week - i promise - LOL! but for some more info...there will be a HUGE girlie kit that is very Spring/Easter-ish...and a new BOY kit that is full of fun and coolness :) and even some albums, too - and maybe more...we'll see! but don't forget that there will also be some fun promotions - so, stay tuned!
and did you see GINA'S new kit? MUST HAVE...so go check it out :) just love her stuff!
alright - off to start the day - hope you all have a wonderful one! oh yeah - the cool little tags on the photos are from Katie Pertiet at Designer Digitals :)
