Photoshop Compulsion

Lately, I've had the itch to create something...anything on photoshop. I LOVE photoshop. I will honestly make an invite for anything! hehe Hey, it's good practice! :0) I started playing around with photoshop a little over 4 years ago and even though I've learned so much already...I know I've only scratched the surface of it's capabilities. I am self-taught and if there's something I don't know how to do, I look it up and find online tutorials. Photoshop definitely comes in handy for creating everything from goody bag tags and church handouts to invites and collages. I've always loved taking photos and I've been dabbling in photography for the past year or so as well. Ü Photoshop and photography seem to go hand in hand so it's double the fun! I've been wanting to take classes for both, but if only I could find the time. Lol I guess for now...I'll just have to keep on reading tutorials. :) Here's a handful of the random things I've created!
(This baby shower tag was created for Leti's awesome idea...it went with a little goody bag of popcorn Ü)


(Yes, I'm a dork for misspelling Surprise...not once, but twice! Lol)

@Janet...I love your photography! I just read your post about white balance which is something I've been wanting to learn more about. If only my photography skills could match my photoshop skills hehe...I'm still learning though. :) I def. need to attend some workshops. hehe Keep up the awesome work!

Shenna: Thank you so much, I appreciate it very much. I noticed that you have a very good eye for taking pictures and Im not just saying that! You should definitely get into it especially since you have kids. I dont have any kids of my own yet*, but it's so rewarding to take pics of my nephew and nieces and of your family in general. LOL@ you reading about the white balance...i had to create that blog for class! shhhhh, it's a secret. hahaha. Take care.
