A slightly different look.....

Forgot to tell you, I updated the header a bit. Very simple. Very relaxing. Made a blinkie to go with it but I think I made it too big. Hahaha! Well............. skrapperdigitals gave us 2 different sizes to pick from and I picked the biggest one! I wanted to show it off! Hahaha! Oh, well. I wanted to be able to move the butterfly around anyway so I'll try to resize when I get that part done. So hold off on collecting the blinkie if you would. But at least you can see I'm doing all the assignments! Yes, if you take the course, you have to make up a blinkie, too.

It's really easy with PSE5. It already has the Animation built in so you don't have to use an outside animater. Go to File>Save for Web and another window will pop up. Make sure to choose GIF and click on the Animate square. Colors are at 256 and dither is at 100%. Choose how fast you want the frames to move per second. And Voila! You're done! Save it somewhere on your computer. Then go to photobucket (or the storage place of your choice) and save it there so you can use the html code. (Crops2Dawn had to help me figure out how to add them to my blog so you could click and go there. Thanks, Croppy!) Check out my favorite choices in the column to the right for Places You Just Have To Go To Before You Die!

And I just noticed something about my bows! I must be holding my mouth funny or else I'm leaning too far to the left because the bow is always "bigger" on the left side. Do you see that, too? Right there! That left curved part! It's "longer" or something. Hmmmm........gotta go fix that................

I love your header and blnkie! What a great logo for your designs! (Okay, I'm partial to the muted greens and teals, so the colors really sucked me in!) :)

You're doing some great design work too!

Sorry to hear about your filling/tooth trouble a while back (yes, I'm replying to more than one post, sorry!) I know what you mean about the tooth scratching the tongue being worse! I had a fall and broke BOTH front teeth a few years ago on a Saturday, of curse, so I couldn't even get in to the dentist on an emergency until Monday morning. They capped them and a day later my tongue was less sensitive, but I was wearing rubber fangs to protect my lower lip!

Nice blog! I'm sure I'll be back!
