Post Edit: To make my Valentine's graphic, I created a Photoshop file that was 640px by 640px square. I then used the circle shape tool to draw one circle (then repeated it using the "Option, click, drag" method, and aligned all the circles with the align options up top). I adjusted the color of each circle in the hue/saturation palette. I used a clipping mask for the photos to fill the circles with our faces. I found a heart graphic online that I lightened to make totally white. And then just used the type tool and trusty Helvetica for the rest (hint: I rasterized my type, and then selected each letter with the Marquee tool, in order to move the letters to their circles). It took me about 20 minutes. Not terribly hard if you have a basic understanding of Photoshop. All of these terms and techniques can also be Googled for tutorials.

Another reason why I NEED photoshop. But I would definitely need a class on photoshop too. You lost me with the lingo! Absolutely darling. Happy heart day right back at you.

Love this!!! So cute. I hope you are feeling better after your face plant. I went golfing over the weekend and threw my shoulder out. It's miserable!

I borrowed this design to make a little birthday treat bag for a friend- hope you don't mind, I love it! (I didn't use your photos of course, and I changed the text etc.. but you know, otherwise it's totally copying you)
