Good Morning,

I am new to this wonderful site!! I am hoping to find an answer to my question that I have been trying to figure out for days. I am creating a birthday invitation for my daughter and I want to make a circle frame and insert her picture into the frame. I have Elements 5.0 and CS3.
I am drawing a blank on how to do this!! It's driving me crazy because I cannot figure this out!!

Thank you so much!!
Jamie C

Hi Jamie and :welcome2:

I love Dinny's ScrapSimple Embellishment Templates: All Stitched-Circles, Straight Biggie. I can always find the right size circle to clip my photo to and the next size up creates a perfect border. I don't always use the stitched just the circle base. They can be used in either of the programs you currently have.

Welcome to Scrap Girls, Jamie!
We're glad you found us!
You can use the shape tool to cut a circle out of paper and to crop your photo - just be sure you are working off a copy.
There are always lots of ways to accomplish something in PSE and PS, so you will probably get other suggestions. But Dee's would be the easiest.

The first thing that came to mind for me was this: Fantastic Frames There's a circular frame that would look awesome on an invitation! The whole set is very festive. :) Have fun!
