Carnival of Creativity

My Bean's mother called her all the way from O Hi O just to squee in her ear because I am so adorable. How does she know how adorable I am? Well, my Bean printed out some 8 x 10's of the collages and magazine covers she's done and sent them to her this week. She especially liked the Valentine's Day cover.

Click on the collage to bigify it!

She also got some comments on Tony's collage, including an e-mail from one of Miss Joanie's friends, who wants to learn digital scrapbooking.

While my Bean has and does use Photoshop, she realizes that it is a very expensive program. Even Photoshop Elements, at $99.99 carries a pretty hefty price tag for some people.

If you are considering learning digital scrapbooking, she suggests you might want to check out Roxio's PhotoSuite. At $29.99 it's a fraction of the price of other more popular graphics programs, but has many of the same features. It's also fairly intuitive to use. (Unlike Photoshop, she did not have to take class to learn to do things in this one.)

You can use the same free downloads for papers, ribbons, accents, etc. that you can get at Free Digital Scrapbooking and other similar sites around the internet.

Just a warning however. This digital scrapbooking is very addictive for humans. Because she has been playing with all of this, she has not taken my picture in days! Here I am begging to have my picture taken:

I mean, what is the point of attending to the Daisy Curly Cat School of Modeling in order to learn dress up so that I can earn treats if she will not let me play dress up?

I don't blame your Grandma for Squeeeeeing in the phone. You are that adorable!!!

Sabrina, Sam and Simon said...

Diamond, that was so sweet of your momma for sending your gramma the photo collages, they are wonderful! And momma likes pug woofies ... they are one of her favorites, even though they are woofies ... hee hee! We like your Irish theme on your bloggie, too!
Purrs and headbutts,

The collages are pretty cool. I best not get into the scrap booking thing because i could see myself doing it 24/7.

Maggy & Zoey said...

Very really good nice great awesome collages! We luv 'em.
P.S. photoshop is also addictive.

Daisy said...

Diamond, you are a star modeling student, and I think you are already ready for the big-time modeling leagues.

We use Photoshop Elements. It took my Mommie a while to figure out how to use it because she does not like to read the instruction manual.

Eric and Flynn said...

You look lovely in that collage but you will have to tell your mum that you need more modelling time. Our mum looked at the link furr the Roxio Photosuite and it costs £29-99 in the UK, that's nearly double what it costs in the US. That's rip off Britain again.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

I hope you are not neglected any longer Diamond.

Chairman Mao said...

Awwww, that's so sweet that yur Gramma SQUEED in the phone about yur adorabbleness! We have a gramma who reads our bloggies, but Momma's momma doesn't... she thinks Momma's silly to have kitty blogs. Oh well. Some beans just don't get it!

Those are superduper collages! Yur bean is furry tallented!

Kittyhugs and purrs from MaoMao!

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Yeah, da price is why mom doesn't haf photoshop. She's gonna check into dat Roxio thingy tho cuz she has some other Roxio dubbing software fur making cd's and she loves it! Hope dat neglect has stopped now, der is no reason fur mom's to neglect us. No reason at all...

Mickey said...

Your Gramma is right, you are beautiful!!
That was very informative about scrapbooking and Photoshop too :)
Mom uses a very old version of PaintShop,but she dosen't do many graphics. Just enough to amuse her....... for now :)
Purrs Mickey

Karen Jo said...

Aww, sorry you're feeling neglected. You look great in your green regalia, though. I'm sure no one can resist petting you.

Poor neglected Diamond!!! Your collages are wonderful. Be grateful that you don't have the flashy box going off in your face all the time.

Sunny's Mommy said...

Of course she squee'ed! Who wouldn't!

I'm so sorry your beans is neglecting you. I hope your beans comes to her senses soon so you can do more modeling.
