New look and I have been tagged.......

As you can see, there is a new background and header for my blog and if you were visiting yesterday, you might have seen a few other options through my trial and error on getting it posted. I have had Photoshop Elements 6 for over a year now and basically all I have done with the program is edit photos (like red eye and cropping) for my layouts. I had no idea how to use the layers in this program, but playing around with it yesterday has really helped me in learning how to work with them. I decided to try my hand at creating a new header and I had a whole lot of fun. I also decided to do a background that would match it and this is what I have come up with. I will probably keep this one up till Valentines day because it is basically that kind of theme, but I have another one I have been playing with that I will probably use after that. The digital elements for the header and the background came from a free digital kit at The Shabby Princess.

I have also been tagged by ScrappinMaMa at Addicted to Scrapbooking. With this one, I need to go to my computer file where I keep my photos and go to the 6th file folder and post the 6th picture and explain it. So, here is my picture......

This is a picture of my oldest daughter when she was about 4 1/2 months old (she is now 4 years old) while she was playing and laughing in her bouncer.

Now, I need to tag 6 friends.....

I hope that you all have had a great weekend and that you have a blessed week.
