    Ops, I ran out of time, sorry. I promise if you send me a pm, I will get the tiles to you tomorrow. The files size are really small, so if I don't have your e-mail address already, and you would be so kind to put it on the pm, I will send them right off!

    Thank you for your patience. Senility is on overdrive today!!!

    Love ya,

    All right, it's the end of June (thanks goodness, one month closer to winter!!!!).

    I would like to thank all for your participation, you made some beautiful layouts. I hope you feel more confortable now about using seamless tiles for your backgrounds and paper scraps. They don't always work for backgrounds, specially if you're using grunge, but they do come in handy.

    I have attached copies of a couple of goodies for you. One file has 9 seamless tiles, very rich in gold and red colors. The other file is 10 borders that compliment the tiles. These borders can be put end to end to make them as long as you need them. I hope you like them and can use them. I sure would like to see them in one of your layouts.

    Please send me a pm and I will give you a link to download them.

    Thank you again.

    Listen, everyone, please...

    Sorry I had deserted you, but I got a million things going on here. Almos done with the patio, and as soon as the temperature falls below 100, I will be trying to finish the kitchen and bathroom.

    There is a week left to his month, let's get a few more layouts in, and I will have something for you all at the end, to thank you for your hard work.

    Well, thank you Vanessa, you're so kind. But as every one here knows, layouts are my weak link!!! I would gladly trade some of my talent for your layout talent!! And the wedding dress really is lovely. It shows all the time and care you put into it.

    And Mommabird is absolutely right, "You are both super talented, creative, and very special!"

    In the Layout forum you made a comment about wishing you had half my talent. Well Granny don't sell yourself short. Anyone who can master 3 Graphics programmes (PSE, PSP and RD) and teach one of them has a very special talent indeed. Not to mention Web Design and graphics manipulation, your own MAX store, restructuring the garden, building a new kitchen - need I go on. You are also very creative granny, you just don't realise how much.
    Toke a vote -- All in Agreement -- You are both super talented, creative, and very special!

    Sorry ladies we have gremlins in the system again

    My envelope bottom has turned to a JPG - Don't know how.

    I have tried several times and it keeps on converting my PNG to a JPG - I think it has something to do with it being just over the file upload size.

    Anyway I have converted the envelope flap into a png too and both files are in the zipped file.

    Thanks for the heads up Mommabird

    Thanks, Granny. Can't wait to see the new site.
    Thanks, ladies for the info on plugins.........but I still don't get it. A plugin is just a filter? I have Photoshop Elements 5. I guess I'll have to go get a freebie and try it out so I can understand what it does. Then I'll be back to ask questions again until Granny can get us all back up and running on RDP.
    There is a folder called Plug-Ins under the PSE directory. That is where you would put any free plugins you get. This just extends the filters or effects that are built into the program. Like Vanessa said, AV Page Curl is a purchased filter as is alien skin Eye Candy. But there are plenty of free plugin filters available. Be sure you take note of which version they are compatible with, as some earlier plugins can cause your system to hang up. I wouldn't be without my addins!

    Like they say, try it, you'll like it!

    You're very welcome Mel. Plugins, yes they are just glorified filters. Mostly I use plugin filters when there is something I want to do that I cannot do easily in PSP. Sometimes you can have too many bits and bobs to think about when the KISS method still works best.
