I think you can pretty much clip your photos to any alpha you have and like. Just place the photo over the alpha you want to adhere the photo to and create a clipping mask. It should clip down onto the alpha for you. You can adjust the photos size to fit and it doesn't ruin your photo so you can unclip it at any time. What program do you use to scrap with?
I'm using Photoshop CS3 right now mostly. I do have Elements 5 too. I'm not sure what a clipping mask is but I'm sure I have it in a book somewhere. Thanks for the tip!
