Anyhow, I finally used Happy Day Oliver, colored with Prismacolor pencils. I cut off the other 2 dinosaurs that were standing next to Oliver. It was a bit painful to cut around him, not sure I want to do that again. An X-acto knife was kind of handy in some spots though. I picked this Oliver to match the digital dinosaur paper from Mindy Terasawa's Stomp Kit that I just printed onto white WalMart cardstock. The Thank You is from PTI. I inked the edges of everything with distress ink. I actually got the foam applicator and everything, but I have to practice more. I thought the laser printer ink might not hold the ink well, but it did OK. Then I cut the sentiment out with an oval nestability and tied it on with brown baker's twine.
I did my watermarked photo this time with my new Lightroom, oops, I meant my son's Lightroom. Did you know there are student editions of Adobe software and as long as your kid is registered as a full time student, starting from kindergarten, you can qualify? Does that seem totally unbelievable that my kindergartener needs Lightroom? But hey, it's expensive raising kids, if he can get a discount for the next 15 or so years, why not? I had to buy a Lightroom book/manual though and it took a while to get through it. And after reading the book, I'm thinking gee, do I even need Lightroom since I'm not even a professional photographer. But I think it does look a little better on my screen after tweaking it with Lightroom. Hopefully it's not going to be too painful to try to edit and print photos out more often.
