Finishing up some Valentines using Rhonna Farrer's art!

I'm trying to finish up some Valentine projects.
This is what my work table looks like...

(Notice that these are very tight shots..the rest of the room looks equally chaotic)
In the first picture, you can see a sheet of Valentine tags printed out and ready to use.
They came from a digital kit from this amazing artist

Rhonna creates and sells the most beautiful Digital artwork.
When I saw some things that were created with this set

I fell in love...((sigh))
If you visit Rhonna's blogposts for the past several weeks, she has featured items made by different crafters and herself , using her images. Some of the images are free downloads, too.
This is my favorite part of the kit...

The Garland!!! The picture above is from Rhonna's blog.

I haven't had time to play with all of the elements yet but I did use one of
the digital papers and a border to make the Valentines for my work pals.

I own Photoshop Elements 10 and I wish I could tell you that I've installed it and I'm using it but truth be told, I'm still using the Fred Flinstone Publishing program that I've used for 6 years.
Anyway, I'm no master at digital but I do love layering the elements to make cool designs.
I added the text...yes, Beatles lyrics....using the
Chopin Script font...I love the swirly fonts!
OK...that's all I can show you right now.

If you love Rhonna Farrer, she has designed two paper lines
My Mind's Eye, called Follow Your Heart
Click here to see all of the papers.
I pre-ordered some of the papers and they arrived this past week

(click on any picture to enlarge)

There are 12x12 sheets...the detail is unbelievable
and there are 6x6 books...

Both sizes work for me...

OK-back to work now.
Tomorrow, I'll show you what this...

has been transformed into!

I got my RF papers and goodies the other day from that site I sent you....So you bought PSE 10, huh? Good luck! LOL I use my once in a great while, and I am going to get better at it, if I can get Karen Valentine over here again to help!
What is the publishing program you use now called???? Love the tags you made....I just have to get outside the box! I did make some cute things for a Valentine lunch I am having on Tuesday....:) I can't wit to see what the tubes become...I have a hunch tho....:)

Wow, Rhonna Farrer. That is a blast from the past. I used to get to use her products when I was on staff on a digital scrapbooking site. She's always had lovely things to purchase.

I think you would like PSE if you gave it a shot. But the Valentines look lovely. I'm sure whoever is receiving them is going to love them.

Can't wait to see what you did with the tubes!
