Christmas LO...

Here is the Christmas LO I did for Toya and Adrienne's RAK...
NOW... I do NOT have a scanner that will scan a 12x12 LO so, I actually found some very easy to follow directions, (and you know if I understood it they were literally made for computer dummies!) about how to scan in the LO in two parts and then "stitch " them together in your Paint program. Well, at first this was annoying because I couldn't get the edges to line up, but I finally got it to work okay this morning, by taking the scanner lid off. So, here are the LOs and YES I know there is a shadow, that is the line where i meshed the two images. (eve nwith the shadow though, it look better than the digital photos I got of it yesterday!)I realize this could have been fixed with all the "color saturation" features and such, but since i have never used them before, I thought it best to leave well enough alone. (unless Toya, Adrienne, Kristin, or someone else who knows what they are doing can come hold my hand through the process... LOL.) AND I resited the urge to sand photos, paint the edges of the paper, and use HS chipboard... it is a Christmas LO miracle folks...LOL. The picture on the LO is terrible, but it was taken with a cheap disposable camera, in a dark area. I am excited for Christmas just thinking back on this day, because my goals for what Christmas will be in our home is so different. I am looking forward to helping the boys give to others,not just receive, and to celebrating true family time,worship time, and being JOYful. I love this time of year!!!!!!!!! Oh, so I am babbling and you are ready to actually see the LO... sorry, here it is! Thanks for looking! Halloween photos are coming soon!
*** I just noticed the lovely white area still in my photos, clearly the stitching technique needs to be learned a little better. I think I just need to adjust the attributes, maybe...LOL
