I just finished Lab 06-08. Lot of fun things to do in there! I made the x-stitch and tag and added it to the template provided. I did make the ribbon and it was fun to learn, but I am really shaky and I could not get it to look smooth (I tried multiple times and even took a Xanax). The font in this lab was cute, but did not match my layout. The picture is of the little tree beside my apartment. I took out the background to get rid of the water tower in the picture and put a gradient in the background. I used the tutorial Carole sent to do that.
This was a great lab and I loved making the x-stitch and tag!
Deloris, you were right — this was a fun lab! I really enjoyed learning the cross stitch and tag and hope to use them both in a future project. It was difficult to get a smooth striped ribbon using a mouse interface, but in the meantime here is mine.
