It's that time of the week again and honestly it's about all I have time for right now. With the school year in full swing, I'm staying really busy and since it's a new job, I am planning, grading, and doing more than ever. Oh well, I enjoy teaching and my job so it's worth it. I just wish I had more time for being crafty.
I was able to get Photoshop Elements 6.0 with a great teacher discount at Best Buy last weekend and I'm still trying to figure out how in the world it works so I don't know that my pictures will be the best. I got the "Missing Manual for Photoshop 6.0" so we'll see if that helps. If anyone has any suggestions or places online that I go for tips, please let me know. Thanks!
The sketch for this week is:
I used the new PTI set, First Fruits, which is great! Coordinating patterned paper is available too and it's just beautiful. I overlapped the Chocolate Brown and Summer Sunset. I love how PTI coordinated their monthly colors but all of the colors can be worked together to make a beautiful combination. On a different note, I tried the rocking method for the first time with the chocolate brown and spring moss. I'm not sure that it turned out the best or that I even did it the right way but I'll learn. I used my Essential Glue pad for the leaves on the background to glitterfy them with some Martha Stewart glitter. Then, I stamped the individual leaves throughout. When I was making this, I wished that I had smaller versions of these things. I think that's about it!

Join in the fun! Thanks for looking and you can go look at the other ladies' blogs too to see what they did with the sketch:
