Hi Valerie,
This is such a fun post...and I totally want to learn Photoshop (*really learn it, not just auto correct everything;) as well.

Please stop by my site for wedding album info! I have a few of my pages of my own posted.

I found you through Crafterminds...I wanted to contact you about a guest post swap. I'm doing a monthly blog hop series and am looking for guest posts related to the following themes. As I have a scrapbooking blog, all posts must be scrapbooking or paper craft-related.

March- baby albums
April- a year in review
May- album about YOU- heritage, life stories, etc.
June- weddings
July- Christmas in July (this can be any craft, not limited to scrapbooking:)

A month-long blog hop incorporating the monthly theme will also be available to link up your projects.

Please contact me if you are interested in doing a guest post and/or swap. Thanks!
