      There are a few companies that offer a start-up shell for Win 8 that will make it look more like Win 7. Classic Shell is a favorite,but there are others. I ordered my new laptop with Win 7.

      classic Shell works well, but we finally took the 8.1 pc back. Too much trouble. the screen would change, and DH wouldn't use it.

      I checked out a few minutes ago and didn't have any trouble.

  5. My old computer died, forcing an upgrade to a new pc with Windows 8.1 and PSE 12. Feeling technically obsolete, and very frustrated.

  6. This is the first of a two page spread, featuring a close up of my DSIL's lovely, talented hands. During our family reunion week in 2011, she graced the residents of the assisted living facility with her beautiful piano music.

Cody was almost 13 and Zachary was 9. They look so young--growing up so fast!!

  9. Eagle River Varsity football opened their football season against North Pole, giving our family an opportunity to visit the holiday haven in the off season. We got a kick out of the sign outside of the local welding shop--I guess we didn't expect Santa's workshop to be quite so industrial looking. I had fun with this layout, but sticking with just one collection was a real challenge for me. I will admit I was struggling with it a bit--getting the photos and the collection to work well together. Fortunately I found my answers in a blog article posted yesterday: Layout Design Process: Brandy Murry. The process she described really resonated with my process for this layout, and her tip about recoloring the photos was the final "ah-ha!" for me. While we had enjoyed a beautiful bluebird day for our visit to North Pole, the cerulean sky wasn't playing well with the rest of the layout. I picked out the brilliant red that I wanted to keep from the photos, copied that to new layers, and photo tinted the rest with a pleasing green. By adjusting the lighting and opacity of the tinted layer, I was able to achieve a result that I liked. Now my Santa photo is back on the nice list!

  10. This layout features 2 circles, 1 box, 4 photos, and a zero as an "o" in "BoX" Our three kitty girls were more than happy to help us unwrap our Christmas gifts--thoroughly enjoying the trimmings and trappings of the occasion.

  11. The Thursday Recipe for Success series inspired me to use multiple patterned background papers to make the boys' names for our Christmas pages--fun!

  12. What a lovely idea to preserve treasured memories while they are still fresh in the mind! I was inspired to scrap my son's 13th birthday, an occasion truly worthy of remembrance. I used AMC_DynamicBrush_Sprinkles as my brush for this layout.
