Shadow Tutorial with Freebie!

Someone suggested I do a tutorial showing how I shadow banners. I'm no expert, that's for sure, but I thought I would make a little video tutorial showing you how I shadow them. I'm using Photoshop CS3. I know that in Photoshop Elements there are more limitations as to what you can do, but I do show you my shadow settings which you should be able to use in Elements.

I always wonder if I'm doing things the right way. There are probably many other ways to do this but this is how I do them. Hope it helps.  Don't forget to grab the freebie below so you can try right along with me.

Memories

I'm just going to pop in real quick tonight to show you a page I just scrapped about my grandparents. My grandfather passed away last week and so I was inspired to scrap this page about my grandparents. My grandmother passed away 14 years ago. They were married for over 60 years! They had 6 children and from those 6 children: 22 grandchildren, 36 great-grandchildren and 5 great-great-grandchildren!
My Journaling:
Even though my grandparents are gone now, they left such an amazing example of how a simple Christian life and marriage should be lived out that even in my life today I can apply those simple truths to my life. Examples of hard work, dedication, service, honesty, steadfastness, gentleness, trusting in God, not complaining or gossiping, etc.. These are the things I remember about my grandparents and I pray that I will take their example and apply it to my life, daily.
Love - Matthew 22:37




Thankfully I had these pics scanned in from an album I did awhile ago (I'll have to show that to you another time). I used a template from an upcoming template set that will be coming out this Thurs. (I guess this is your little sneak peek for this week) and then a kit from Julie Bullock called Vintage Treasures (Beautiful by the way and perfect for a page like this!)

I won't be doing a giveaway on the blog this week but I will have one over at Scrap Orchard and probably DST later on tomorrow sometime. I'm still getting back to normal around here after traveling for the funeral this weekend. I'll let you know on my facebook when I have those posted so that you'll have a chance to wint my 2 NEW template sets.
