I used Syndee's Converting a Color Photo to Black-and-White Using a Black-and-White Adjustment Layer on the photo, but it's hard to tell since the pic was so small and I lowered the opacity of the vignette quite a bit. But, I also used it on the background paper and had more fun playing with that for the past two days! I loved using Elisha's Coffee House Collection Biggie for this LO. Learned lots- great challenge!
(A Paul Harvey moment : what I didn't journal was that Mom always said that I loved coffee even as a baby, and Dad always said, "but I could never get you to try beer." Hahaha, I miss that guy!)
