Thanks to each of you who visited my blog for my sneak peek of the Spellbinders Floral Accent die! Good luck to each of you who entered the contest for the Day 3 die and for the Grand Prize (lucky winner!!!). The winners will be posted on the Spellbinders Blog.
Several of you expressed interest in my use of shoe polish on my photo holder. Above is an example of using polish to color a photo, leaving a spotlight. I also have a card in the Winter Take Ten magazine where I used a tan polish to create a vintage look. I grew up polishing my Dad's dress shoes every Saturday night, so I guess that is where I came up with these ideas!
Last night I was still up (watching my Florida Gators win the national championship) when Heidi's sneak peek came up. I think you will find her reveal very "polished" also! Be sure you check it out today! I love seeing what Heidi does with Spellbinders die templates! You honestly do not won't to miss a single sneak peek!
I also wanted to let you know that Picasa now has a version for Mac. I have used Picasa for years on my desktop, but this week I can use it on my Mac Book Pro! I love it for photo storage, editing, blogging, making collages and adding watermarks to my photos! It is a free program that is just great! Picasa 3 has some great new features!
Speaking of free, I ran across a blog that was new to me that shows some great Copic coloring and she has some free blog candy today! The blog is called Papercrafts by rach....not sure how I have been missing out on this one!
Good luck to each of you as you enter the Spellbinders contests and I hope you will visit me often!
