So as I've rambled on enough times, my house is up for sale (keep hoping if I say it enough someone will buy the stupid place). I just dropped the price, the market is very soft right now and hey it's an old house and needs some work. My brother's friend is coming tomorrow to put the new bathroom floor in (nice floor and I got it for free) and to skim my walls in the living room and hallway. With the house being old circa 1929 the walls are plaster so when I pulled my wallpaper off........well you know what happened, part of the plaster came off as well. Of course then I got sick and everything came to a halt, mind you the soon to be ex hubby could have finished but well we just won't go there. My job is to finish taking the bits of wallpaper down, hopefully then I can paint next week and the house won't look like a fixer upper but an actual house.
Didn't go to my parents as I'm home getting my walls ready, will be going to the show with my mom probably next week.
Ok, so instead of doing my walls I sat here and made another template. In other words I will be up all night finishing what I could have done this moring!

But I did make another template. This one has some extras in it so it's bigger. I did two versions of the photomask so you have choices! The one looks like it's 'cutout' and the other one is just regular, no drop shadow or anything. The same with the hearts, I was playing around and created 2 versions.........translated, both versions are in the PSD and the PNG files. The preview I'm showing is the 'cutout' version with both hearts used.
Enjoy, and I would love to see some of your layouts or creations. Send them to me at jayediddesigns(at)gmail(dot)com.

Here's a layout I did with it, posting here instead of on my slide. Love the way this turned out as I was playing with recolouring in the photo. The water is actually a greeny colour and the girls waterwings were bright yellow. So proud, I keep learning new things everyday.....of course the trick is remembering how you did it.
The kit I used was made by Vicki and is called Beach Holiday. You can find her blog here A Work in Progress, she does wonderful work, check her blog out....not only is it great, but it's free. Go look and please remember to leave her some love when you download her wonderful items.
