Blog Challenge Winner Announced! Tutorial & A CU Freebie

I'm seriously going to miss my NORMAL cup of coffee in the morning. WW's going pretty good, but when I figured out how many points my coffee would cost me (light & sweet) ... I figured it was something I had to give up for a while! Otherwise, I guess I'm doing pretty good ... now if only I could convince myself to go walking in 90+ weather! LOL LOL


As promised, instead of picking out just ONE winner I had Mike pick out FIVE winners to the blog challenge. And now ... the moment you've been waiting for ... the winners of my 1st Blog Challenge ....

Jennifer Schmitt

Isn't this exciting?! Congratulations to each of you!! Individual coupons will be issued to each of you for "Absolutely Fabulous Textures 01". For those of you who are new to the blog ... here's what they have won:


This product is CU/S4H-O/PU and is a $14.99 value ... all theirs for FREE - just for leaving a comment on my blog last week!

Want a turn to win? Good news then ...


For this week's blog challenge the prize I've selected is "Bab's Designer Brushes 30 - At The Sea Doodles."


This prize is CU/S4H-O/PU and is valued at $6.99. This set includes 37 doodles. I've included a .png file for each brush tip (which will enable non-Photoshop users to create brushes in their programs - or use as is) as well as the .abr file.

The BEST part is that all you have to do to win is POST a comment on my blog. How easy is that? A winner will be selected from any and all comments that are posted during this week - the winner to be announced next Monday! Good Luck to each of you!!

----- TUTORIAL -----


Today's tutorial was requested by DonnaC. She wanted to learn how to fit her photos inside of a frame. The frame is included in the tutorial, it coordinates with my kit "Spring Blossom." Tutorial and included frame are PERSONAL USE only.

---> Download <---



I figured since we were working with frames today ... you'd get another one! I created this frame using my "Leafy Things" leaf pack. The frame is bark and I thought it was kinda cute.

---> DOWNLOAD <---

I hope you enjoy the downloads and can't wait to hear from you! Remember, you have to post a comment to get a chance to win the blog challenge! And keep those tutorial requests coming in - it's really the only way I'll know what you guys are looking for!

Take care & have a GREAT day!

Thanks for today's goodie and the tutorial too. :-)
I like my coffee to be light and sweet as well. What about using fat free half & half? or skim milk? and a sugar substitute? I like the new Truvia or Pure Via (both made from Stevia, an herbal product). What I drink in the AM is Mocha made with Swiss Miss Diet Hot Chocolate and a scant teaspoon of instant coffee ... in a 12 oz or so mug. I add a splash of skim milk to cool it down :-).

GF said...

Woohoo those are awesome hon! Congrats to all the previous winners!

I plundered alot on your blog today and found many neat goodies and tutorials I am trying out as we speak!

DonnaC said...

Thank you so very much for the great tut, I just tried it and how easy to follow!!!! Thank you for the frames too and Congratulations to the winner of the awesome doodles : )
Are your tuts written for PS elements?

Mercedes said...

I hope I'm posting this in the right place :) Those beach brushes are adorable and would be perfect since I'm about to take a family beach trip!!

Good luck on the WW... I lost 30 or so pounds of pregnancy weight (and thensome) on it after I had my baby girl!! You quickly realize that certain things (like that coffee!!) just aren't worth the points! :)

WOW you have so much information to pick from, so I guess I will have to have one of everything..
Walking in 90+ degree weather is made easy when you do it inside. Put some music on and walk in place, get a step meter to wear and start stepping. Step high, step to the side, march in place it works. Leslie Sorenson has walking CD's I have them all..
Now back to the blog and decide what I want..hehehhe
