So I did a 2 page 8.5x11 LO. It took me 2 hours, but I'm getting faster at navigating the program, so hopefully it'll go faster later.
If there is anything I should change to improve the LO, let me know! I haven't messed with any of the more advanced features-- I'm basically still just cropping, resizing, and layering. I haven't figured out the shadow thing or any kind of texture stuff.
Thanks for looking!
