Just love it! I like how you did the photo edge. Did you do the edge on the photo then put a white mat behind it? or is it another way?

It's actually the frame I used that made it look that way. The frame was originally black but I wanted white, so I changed it - but this is what the frame looked like to start:

Love it! It was worth the wait! Wink

I see all sorts of things that I wouldn't have thought of doing, but now just might scraplift. Smile

I wouldn't have matched that background to a Christmas LO, but it works great! I never know what to do with elements like the wire wrap -- but you always seem to! I like the grungy edge on the frame/picture. And I need to learn how to change the color on wordarts (I have Gimp, but don't play with it all too much). I never remember that I could do stuff like that.

Honestly, I don't know if I would have used the wire frame if I hadn't been doing a CT layout (I try to use as many of the elements as possible when doing a CT layout) ... But thanks Smile As for the changing color, I don't know how to do it in Gimp, but I JUST figured out how to do more than 1 color in wordart (by duplicating the layer several times, and deleting the different parts of the layers so the colors underneath show).

I love the wire circle frame thingy! I am going to have to lift that onto paper somehow! You did a really great job. LOVE the title too!
