    Default Help with storyboard! - updated for the millionth time

    Not sure if anybody noticed (probably not, LOL!) but I haven't been around for a few weeks. My laptop died and I have been waiting on a new power cord which took forever and a day to get here. No fun! Anyway, I am back now, and I can't wait to go see what all I've missed! Hopefully I can dig up the VC show and tell thread because I never got to copy everyone's work to my scraplift folder!

    I need to whip up a birthday gift for my mom really fast (her birthday is in the middle of next week), so that cord came just in time! This is what I have so far. Thank you sooooo much for the help in getting this far, Gwen, because I am totally clueless!!!



    I was thinking I maybe should have done the pictures in a brownish tone? I am not loving the quote, so if anybody has any other ideas I am totally open to them. I was going to go with something specifically about grandmas, but then I realized that she might put this in the living room or somewhere else where I wouldn't want my dad to be totally excluded from it. So if I'm doing a quote it should be grandkids (not grandma) or general happiness type quotes. Or should I maybe just put the kids' names and the date or something like that? And digi girls or anyone who has done something like this before, please give me any pointers you have...I have seriously NO idea what I am doing! I'm sure she will like it no matter what I do, but I want it to be as nice as possible. TIA for any suggestions!

    I really like the storyboard! The pictures are perfect and I really like the font of the quote.

    I don't know if you wanted to consider a scripture or not, but we gave my MIL a frame with a picture of the grandkids for Mother's Day that had this verse from the English Standard Version (ESV):

    I think the storyboard looks great! but I'd either add a little more contrast to the pictures or go with the chocolate b&w (which is the brown). I just looked at them again, it's not really contrast, but they need something else to them, I can't put it into words. but that's the photo editing coming out in me.

    as far as quotes, I suck at them. I end up googling for quotes and then pouring over the results for a long time.

    Okay, here is the chocolate...not sure I really like it.



    I'm thinking that it needs color pictures? But the problem is that Evan's shirt kind of clashed with the background. Hmmm...

    ETA: Thanks for the scripture idea! I hadn't thought of that. I will check your link a bit later...gotta get Miss Lindsay to bed now!

    Here are some more quotes. Just putting these here so I can find them easily again! I am really tired and Evan hasn't been sleeping well lately so I'd better get to bed. I'll have to check out some scriptures tomorrow. Thanks so much for your advice so far! Love you ladies!

    that looks adorable! I'd do the photos in b/w but if you're using photoshop I would place the place the photos on the page so they are next to each other for ease of comparison, adjust the exposure of each (middle slider in levels would do it - the little one on the left is a tad dark, evan is a tad bright, lindsay is pretty good) then use a gradient map layer to convert to b/w. I think your black and white photos do need a little more contrast but if you add it as they are Evan will be blown by the time the little one on the left has enough.
