Everyday Wonder

One-year-old David was captivated by the daisies that hung over the path.

Directions for one technique I used on this layout:  
For this layout, I wanted to use the lifted-shadow rectangular frame from a frame cluster in Syndee Nuckles’s Flea Market Word Art Mini (part of Value Pack: Flea Market 2). First, I made a copy of the frame cluster PSD file, highlighted the frame, photo mask and shadow, and locked the three layers together. Next, I dragged all three layers onto my layout. The date on the original photo frame read AUG 57, so I painted that date out with the clone tool, and typed on actual date of my photo. To make the writing look older, I simplified the date text layer and gave it a 2-pixel Gaussian blur. (from the 8/19/13 Scrap Girls Digital Scrapbooking newsletter)

The Oceans Declare the Glory of God

The Bible says, "The heavens declare the glory of God." (Psalm 19:1a)  I think the oceans do, too.
