All caught up, I added 5 embellishments and the ribbon worked once I found what I was looking for. :)

Won't be able to get to the next two steps until Sunday night. DH and I are leaving in the morning to provide music for the Methodist Women's Annual Retreat upstate and my Netbook can't handle PSE. I'll be checking in once we're in for the night, though.

That's going to be a hard one, my photos don't really lean towards journalling. I'll have to see what I can come up with.

Goodness Jane! You must be exhausted...

For posting here's what I do:

1. Save your layout as a jpg 4 x 4 inches, (288 x 288 pixels) at 72 dpi
2. Be sure you are in Full Editor (Fast Reply won't work) and click in the browse box under "attachments" at the bottom of the posting window.
3. Naviagate to your jpg image and upload it
4. Click "Attach This File"
5. Click on the "Add to Post" button on the right side of the light purple bar.

HTH :)

Hi Jane, I'm not sure what program you are using, but in PSE 9 you would go to Image>Resize>Image Size (Alt+Ctrl+I)
When the image size box pops up, be sure there are check marks next to the Scale Styles, Constrain Proportions and Resample Image boxes
In the document size section of the box, change the resolution to 72 pixels/inch
Change both the width and height to 4 inches
When you change the width and height to 4 inches, the pixels in the Pixel Dimensions section at the top of the box should automatically change to 288 for the width and the height. Then Save as a Jpg. HTH

Also, I read that you need to change the resolution to 72 DPI first and THEN change the dimensions of the image. :)

Adding the embellishments was hard this time, but the journaling was easy. Usually it's the other way around! Go figure. :lol:

I'm up to date!

Now that I have my embellishments added, I'd like to change one of the papers. Is it too late???


Hi Karen, once you've posted your required screen shot from step four, we prefer that you don't make major changes, but a subtle change would be okay. We want you to be happy with the finished page. HTH ;)

I think changing the background could be considered a major change! LOL! Not a problem. I will make it work. If I decide to print it out for myself or my daughter, I can always change it then, if I still want to. I may decide I like it as is when it's done!

Step six done. I had to move my ribbon over to make everything work, but it's the same ribbon, just moved and resized to fit.

Mmm.... I added my five embellishments but I think I've got myself cornered with the journalling; I've used Brandy's Zoomba Love Words Paper for my second paper. I guess that's why this is called a challenge! Coffee and thinking time!

I had a suspicion that we would need to add some journaling so I had made sure I had a spot for some and it is now added - three sentences.\

Now I am wondering what our final step will be.

Ended up with a Bamboo tablet problems and more than 3 sentences of text. Hey ho.

If any one is a Bamboo expert, could you have a look at my question please?

After several phone calls with my Mum, I've finally got enough information to add some appropriate journalling.

Step 6 done.
