    Gerry, that is a cute “colleague” to bring along (hehe). I am glad you enjoyed the challenge.

    Annie, Australia is a place I would love to visit. Even more after seeing your pages. If I ever go, you will be my guide, ok?

    Hank, you nicely framed each of those instruments. It looks so professional. You did a great job with that last template!

    Susan, yes, I do plan on having those as “purchasable” in the future. Thanks for reminding me. For you, however, if you have all the emails and passwords, it should still be available to you at any time.

    Karon, I am not sure if the justification would be any better in a different program. The problem is just to have fewer words to work with. I have seen that even in newspapers where a narrow column has a few lines that look funny because they don’t have enough words to even out the extra spacing.

    Euka, it is strange that the server response would affect your PSP that much. Although PSP is connected for the store and such, using it should not require a connection. I am glad you are now more comfortable in tweaking templates. It will definitely open up more possibilities as you can now look at ready-made templates and use them in many different ways.

    Diane, I like how you used two colors for the rectangles. May I suggest something you could try? Try selecting the area of both rectangles together and contract a bit (to leave some margins) and then, put your text in it slightly larger font so it can fill both areas. (or you can add more text too). I think it would look interesting although, you still have the last word.

    Corrie, consistency makes the whole project so cohesive. I hope you get a chance to print that. It would be a nice piece for the coffee table as a conversation starter.

    Fiona, a recipe book is typically a long-term project so don’t give yourself a deadline. Add them as needed, when you have time and when you have a photo. My husband did something similar for our kids, last year, although he did it in video and online. It is bare-bone, but enough for them to use. Check it out.

    Libera, better late than never. Are those trees in a certain location? I would love to know where they are and if you happen to have other details about them (type of tree, age, etc.) it would certainly be fun to read.

    Hello, Everyone! As someone said…this has been a real education with so many topics presented. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and talent.

    I am late to the party. A flooded basement and its clean up has had my attention…and continues to demand my attention. I did manage to get each day’s assignment done…usually late at night. I finally flattened and resized them with little to no fine tuning. I’m sure you will be surprised to hear my topic is pickleball. Our group laughingly refers to ourselves as the Jennie Dean Southside Gang. Jennie Dean is the park where our courts are located.

    Each year we have a “Rumble In The Park” which is an inhouse tournament…just for our players. This year, as we were setting up, the rains came down…and hard. I looked like we would have to cancel our tournament but players began to go home and return with leaf blowers, squeegees and towels and blankets. With everyone pitching in the courts were soon dry and safe to use. Teamwork makes the dream work.

    Selkirk is a brand of pickleball paddle and many of our players play with Selkirk paddles…as shown here by Michelle and Judy.

    I did want to learn the technique taught on Day 6 so I created this page. It does not fit my theme but I think it makes an interesting page.

    I created this template…never again with so many layers…and them I misaligned one small square…and did not create enough squares for all players. 2 were left out…

    It was a laborious process but I did enjoy learning it. Thank you, Carole, for a great challenge!

    Monique, one square on my mask did the same as yours. I never did figure out how/why it happen. I finally deleted that mask group and created another…and all was fine. My template had a lot of mask groups…and only one had that problem. Carole may be right about the light grey…

    Nadine and Marie-Claire, your posts were caught in the spam folder (sometimes it is picky when it includes links, other times it is just random). I released them and you can remove the duplicates. If it happens again, just drop me a message so I can check.

    I wasn’t able to sign up because I knew I wouldn’t be able to do one page per day (work is too busy right now).  I will wait for the next time you run it or when it’s purchasable which works great for my schedule.  Everyone did such beautiful work, it’s really inspiring.

    This is my magazine days 5.6. and 7. I really struggled with days five and six. it was my intent to work them together so that they could be a two-page spread. I did the template for day five first and it looked great. I struggled with the instructions on day 6. After an hour or so,  I figured out the one little part I missed. Then I went to insert my picture into the mask for day 5 and the picture showed through the mask like shadowed images in the area that was suppose to be blacked out. I never figure out what I did wrong, so I just recreated two new mask layers. Carol on the day eight the password would work. I don’t know why. I enjoyed the challenge and everyone’s beautiful work. -Laurie

    Finally I got around to Day7 and making my own templates. This did help me to understand the process a little more. I also went back to each of my pages from the previous days and decided they needed the frame and liked Cassel’s from her templates. I just dragged the layer across to me artwork. Then I made a summary of all of them on a storyboard like other members have done. I have not yet used my own created templates but this is something I could do for another project perhaps.

    Thank you for sharing Gab’s First Cookbook with us from your message Carole to me. I had a quick look and think I may try out the Guacamole recipe for myself. If he wants he could add my ‘Jenny’s Carrot Cake’ recipe as posted. Please keep the name Jenny in the title as it is in her memory. I always make a little more of the gooey filling when I make it!

    My projects centre around my photos and I can appreciate the trees photos of Libera. Trees are fascinating.

    Here’s my storyboard with my templates (yet to be used) at the end.

    Thank you Carole for a packed tutorial.

    Marie-Claire, I think you have to upload images one by one and in reverse order to see them in the correct order (I think).

    Laurie, isn’t that always a tiny step or detail that can cause such headaches? But I bet you will remember next time!

    Fiona, I’ll share Jenny’s recipe with Gab.

    Fiona: That storyboard looks great! Just so you know, if you wanted to print it as a magazine or booklet, it would need two more pages. They work in fours. Either 4, 8 or 12 pages for the printer. I worked in publishing many years and learned the rule of 4s.

    Thank you Carole, I tried, but it didn’t work either, i’ll just leave it like that

    I finally made it to day 7, and made my own template.
    Hereby my last page 7 made with my own template.
