I decided to make my own template again and this time I made a template for a Backpack. I have to come up with a tutorial soon and I will be posting it here and on my CDAC group. I chose a denim paper that I just purchased and a deep red cardstock. My image is from Michelle Perkett called Mary Margaret. Isn't she cute! I used a white correction pen to create my stitches on the denim paper and a black pen for the stitches on my closure tabs. I colored mary Margaret using Adobe Photoshop and added some school embellishments like my ABC's, pencil, apple and a sentiment. I layered or pieced her apple and bow to give it that raised effect. My backpack opens and has a velcro dot to keep it closed. I haven't finished the inside but I will wait until I need a card for someone special. I think I will send it to my youngest granddaughter who is 4 1/2 years old and is in preschool.

Gerber daisies make a really great subject for digital photography. I planted these in the Spring of 2009.

I created some magic on this photo that I took of a butterfly. I used Adobe Photoshop CS4 and transformed my color photo in to a black and white photo. I also changed the color of the butterfly by using Layers...
