Pepe's Russian River Scrapbook Page

I'm starting to get a little more of a handle on this whole mommy thing.  However, even with my best laid plans my days never go that way. But the last couple of days, I have been able to get a few small digital projects done. Yeah!  Including this one.  The next scrapbook page of Pepe's adventures.  One of our earlier Russian River Canoeing trips way back in May 2007.  He's sooo handsome!  My husband is too.  :)

Looking at my first trial here,  I see some definite improvement.  I do recall, however, spending more time on learning how to convert one of the button flower elements into a brush.  Which was really cool to do, unfortunately it has been so long I don't remember how I did it.  I think I may go back and touch it up or start all over.  Ha!  Anyways, the digital scrapbook kits used in this piece were downloaded for free from  Computer Scrapbook.  I still can't believe how many digital kits they have up for free.  There weren't any TOU's on this particular design, so I don't know who to credit.  Thanks to whom ever it was, teals are my fav!

While I was trying to confirm what the proper file size and resolution should be on a standard digital scrapbook page, I found a new way to mask from a 300dpi.com tutorial .  I have never done a mask like that before, it may be simpler too.  If you check out the first video you  recognize the 3" square paper blocks I was inspired to try out.  That is actually how the whole page got started.  Before I knew it I had a whole page done, while baby Vivian slept and played on my lap.
