Template 23!

It's Official. I am counting down to the end of pollen season! I went and got masks yesterday so I could work in the garden without inhaling everything and having a reaction. It worked great, and I was out there for almost 2 hours. Just as I was finishing, my hubby came to the back door with my cell phone. It was a call that I had been waiting on, so I sat on the edge of our fire pit(concrete block and brick, makes a great seat), took the mask off without thinking, and talked for about half an hour. Where's the anvil hitting itself in the head emoticon when I need it?!?! Needless to say, I've been pretty worthless today.

So, here's your template, and then I am off to sleep since Jon(Hubby) is now home and can corral the munchkins!

Template 23. This is one of the pages from the Helter Skelter Album. It is the only one that will be in the bonanza! If you want the full album, click on the album preview, and you can go to the store.


This download has Expired! Look for the album in the store!

The Album:


A little info about the template. I have added frames to the photo spaces in this template, but to save space, I have the frame and photo on the same layer. When I made the album, I added the frames so you can see the photo spaces clearly. There are three ways you can put in your photos:

1. Use the Magic Wand, Paste Into Selection method to insert your photos into the space and preserve the frame. (For more info on this method, see the first tutorial on my tutorial page)
2. Use each layer as a cutting mask, eliminating the frame. If you want to add a frame once you have used the clipping mask, I used the stroke, inside at 30 pixels for each frame.
3. Add a layer on top of each photo space, insert your picture there, and leave the frame visible below.

I Hope you enjoy this template! I am working on a gallery right now so you can share your layouts with TPI templates. Please email me if you want to share yours!

I also have two new sets going in the store tomorrow! Be on the lookout!!

See you tomorrow!!
