So now I'm feeling remarkably prolific - wow - three digi layouts in as many days! And I finally learned about brushes (that was SUCH a mystery), the lasso tool, cutting letters out of an alphabet, how to line the letters up, and that elliptical marquee tool. My apologies to non-photoshop users as I know it's greek.
Oh - and another quick update on the Organized & Inspired front! I sorted through my stickers tonight. WOW - my tastes have seriously CHANGED! I was able to weed out roughly 1/3 of my sticker letters and more like 90% of all my stickers that weren't letters! Still don't know my final storage solution, but with so much less to work with, should make that decision easier.
