I love December!

So DH and I can't keep secrets from each other at all. Which is a good thing. But when it comes to Christmas,birthdays etc gifts we can't help but give it to the other when we buy it. It is the excitement of seeing each others face and we can't wait until the day! Big problem with us.

Well DH gave me my gifts tonight! i already gave him is PS3 because I wanted to sell his PS2 before Christmas on craigslist. Then I went and bought him a game and since he gave me my gifts I gave him his second game. Anyway...for christmas he got me

Adobe Photoshop Elements 8! Now I just have to figure out how to use it. for the life of me I can't understand why they wouldn't include an instruction book! So I'll get to spend the next few weeks playing with the program.

He also got me:
The patio set I wanted for our new deck, the cricut tool kit, the primary colors for the cricut, about every imaginable ink pad color that I didn't already have, and a scrapbook page book and some 4x6 mat pages.

And while I was baking with my mom today he painted my scraproom! I love my hubby! We'll be doing a 2nd coat tomorrow while we listen to the Jags lose to Miami.

I'm not sure if I'll use it to do anything digi. I really want to be able to edit my photos. I'm gonna look for an instruction manual or a step by step guide cause it's confusing. Sad

Yes I am spoiled and i tell him all the time that I know I am. LOL. His mama raised him right!

It is crazy complicated but you'll get there, there are a bunch of online tutorials if you know what it is you're trying to do or you could try posting a photo on the photography board for people to play with and ask that they list their steps so you can start to see what is possible with it. If you're after a book a lot of people swear by the Scott Kelby ones, I don't know much about them since I learn better by just playing with it. Good luck! and have fun.

How cool is that!
Check out the Scott Kelby books for Photoshop. I had one with Elements 5 and it was great! I haven't gotten the one for elements 7, but luckily I still remember some of the stuff from the other book:)

JEALOUS!!! I'll be lucky if I get something from Victorias Secret from my DH. He puts no thoughts into gifts at all. I have to lay out my list months ahead of time, tell him the price, where to get it, and what hours the stores are open.

that's awesome!!! I have Elements 7, and there's so much you can do. but you're right, no manual so that sucks. there's still new things I'm learning all of the time. there are some awesome tutorials online, just google.

LOL! I was confused, I read 'PS2' as photoshop 2 Smile Then I couldn't figure out why you'd need PSE8 too lol . You'll love the program, it just takes awhile to get used to Smile
