Getting the Hang of it...Maybe

Hi guys! I was able to sit and play abit with the Adobe PhotoElements. I think it's working alittle faster than it did last night 'cause I defragmented and compressed alot of files. Still...this is going to take some getting used too... Like what I was able to do so far? There are some 'flourish brushes' you can download from somewhere to make pretty 'vintage' flourishes on your photos..anyone know where? This little girl is a cutie for Carnival of Fortune's Friday night posts...she is so sweet, The Queen of the Carnival shares some of her awesome photos with us.
Isn't this cute?!!! They are little rubber duckies all over! I love it!
And this one, yes I know you guys probably have done this, but I took a vintage picture and added moi!

I hope I can get this 'emailed posts returns' situation figured out! Any ideas? I don't want to quit blogger...I wish this was like etsy or something where there is an admin thing you can email and get some straight answers to with out having to weed through the forums...blah...blah..blah... I like straight answers! Hang in there with me guys! love ya!
See that baby girl there in the following post... that is me! I'm soo sad and mad at the same time because it is some computer glitch that is causing this...I can't fix it...and it seems it always happens to truley...nothing seems to work for me... and I feel so helpless. Sorry for being the kill joy... It will get better... won't it?!!

oh christine woohoo for you the pictures are gorgeous, did you put the rubber duck on.
Is your email working ok, cause thats what my messages say not an issue with blogger but your email.
I am off to check out blogger profile to see if there is something you can change but to be honest you are better at computers than I am. lol.
I really want to get the knack of photos but I am terrible at them.
Speak soon

Christine I wish I could help you but I really have no clue. I can't even configure my pictures the way I want let alone do something fancy to them. I think it was your email as well. Because the comments were posting on blogger. But they were returning your email. Hope you get it figured out.


p.s. - how cute are you??

Hi Christine, I love it when you visit my blog. Wish I could help you too. I have had adobe for a long time and can't do a thing with it. Usually I am pretty good at following instructions but not on adobe. I have fiddled and fiddled with it so I have resigned myself to taking a class. Hope you get things figured out.

thanks guys! I'm slowly learning all the bells and whistles it has. I think that is why it is so slow sometimes.It has all this information to load and process everytime it starts or stops something.. Me being the tech genius I am! LOL!!! My computer has enough disk space and memory... I'll keep ya posted! =)

I am so impressed with you! Photoshop scares the heck out of me & confuses me to no end. Can you come & give me lessons?
