It was my first time using them, so I'm sure that I'll improve over time. I'll put the links here because there are explanations about the tools under one of them. Special Delivery and Through the Screen Door. We weren't acually supposed to do a layout for the screen door one, but I was having fun and wanted to do the layout, so posted it in the UFO challenge. lol
My play tools are: CS5.5, PSE9; PRE9; PSPX2, on a Laptop PC, with Win7

I have also dodged (lightened) and burned (darkened) areas around, eg. a paper clip where part of the paper clip is supposed to be behind the paper. It can be a bit tricky to get it to look completely realistic, but fun to play.
In this layout: Great-Grandchildren I dodged and burned the "I love grandma" and "I love grandpa" word art strips on top of the already 3D-appearing heart. This was easy to make look realistic b/c all I had to do was follow the light and dark areas on the heart itself and copy that for the strip I placed on top of it.
Sponge: never used it! Eager to see what others say about it too.
