Default DGC018Template Time 3/3/09

Since I went over to the dark side-my favorite thing has become the
TEMPLATE--So It's Template Time I am not sure that all of your programs allow for templates, but if not then just use one of Sally's Sketches as your guide.
I have found a ton of FREE templates here http://www.ikeagoddess.com
but my favorite by far are the Yin templates because I like to scrap a lot of pictures. Her site is here http://yindesigns.blogspot.com/

and if you go to her blog you can still find a couple of freebies

So the ground rules- use a template-or a Sally's Sketch with more than 3 pics.

Here is an example of one of my lay-outs using a Yin Template
http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...&ppuser=106345

This time all the NAMES-can you tell I am hoping for greater participation- will go into a drawing from now until the end of March for a drawing for another album to alter! Every page you make will get you into the drawing.
The expiration date then to have your name in the drawing is April 7th so it will include all of the challenges from now until the end of March!
Happy Scrappin!
Here is a link to the prize
http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...&ppuser=106345

Make sure you add DGC018 to your keywords (additional keywords are OK, just separate them with commas), and PLEASE post a link here in this thread; we would NOT want to miss it! Also, if you aren't a FAN CLUB member, please observe the NO UPLOAD on SUNDAY rule!

Valerie, you must have read my mind. I was thinking about a challenge using templates. I love using templates, because I am so challenged when it comes to doing a sketch. I like ikeagoddess.com too. Another site where you can find many templates is

http://freedigitaltemplates.blogspot.com/

Look in the right margin for more sites with free templates. I like M Originals and Simply Yin.

I am wondering what software programs everyone uses. I use PSP X2 and Photoshop Elements v6.

This will be a fun challenge. Thanks Valerie!

Great challenge once again. I have never used a template before, so this could be interesting I am using PSE6 and am still very new at it, so I may be coming to you girls for help!

Oh, this should be fun! I use PSE3 and am currently testing PSE7, which I expect I'll buy when my trial is up. I haven't really used templates, so this is a good one for me.

I made it through my first template! It was a little tricky at first, but once I figured out what I was doing it wasn't so bad. I even have another template picked out to use. I'll have to work on that one this weekend. Well, here it is! Thanks for the great challenge - without things like this I would never learn anything new!

Haven't been feeling well today so I've been laying around doing digi. I'm now watching Oprah on the teen sex talk...wanting to cry because these children are only a year older than my DD1...just not ready to go there (although I will be soon which is why I'm watching)...***HUGE SIGH***

Okay, here's my page and it fulfilled a few challenges. Feeling pretty good about it:
