I charge by the hour for anything before noon, Female, 36, from Auckland, New Zealand

Yay, some good news. A virtual job interview next Wednesday afternoon (Tuesday evening). First one in 6 months so it’s very much appreciated Jun 22, 2023

        Look at some of the others that are done in all white, naybe it will give you some ideas. There are many shades and textures of white. Sometimes it just takes a bit heavier shadow to make it work right.

        I haven't found anything except an alpha I want to use which is probably 90% of my problem...also the type of photos i want to scrap don't have a tonne of embellishments anyway

        Hang in there Jennifer! I know you will crush this challenge when the mojo flows ... maybe do one of the other challenges while you think on it.

        if the bright idea means I can keep scrapping then it's worth it right? just need some determination and willpower to save enough money

      Well I wanted to make Bridge a viable option for tagging but just was way too buggy so back to ACDSee. At least I tried it out to find out

      Over three hours later and my laptop is still not working right, everything is either slow or crashing now

        @umyesh, the issues may be terminal unfortunately due to my laptop's old age. It has got a bit better but for how long is anyones guess

      Don’t know when I’ll be scrapping again….watching a very slow windows update isn’t much fun.

      Well that was a giant fail, Bridge is too much of a resource hog for my laptop and crashing way too often to be much use

        Jennifer, you have inspired me to think about using Bridge in my CS6. I usually just do a file search in the files for what I am looking for.

        @A-M, I have found it reasonably easy to use but I did find a blog post from another store that helped me. Happy to share via PM if you would like. My only gripe is it’s a bit of a resource hog on my laptop but a bit of patience and it sorts itself out ready to be used.

        Jennifer, I want to say a great big THANK YOU as I just looked for a tutorial for my CS6 and I am going to start using Bridge for being able to add keywords to photos so that I can find different ones during the year more easily. I will put them in catagories like - grandchildren, Ken, garden, holidays, beach, etc

        @bestcee I've been lucky this year in that my first job application wasn't due til the 16th (last night). By this time last year I had already had 7 job applications since around the 5th so the big difference is I've had TIME this MOC! May not stay the same but for now I'm taking full advantage of it

      And thats now the second layout for the same challenge I've binned....maybe MOC isn't for me again this year

        @Karen I hope I won’t but just not finding the kit or template I like for a particular photo time and time again has dragged the enjoyment out of MOC for me.

        Maybe take an art journaling approach to the challenges - is not the end result that matters, its the journey and creative process, what's learned along the way.

        I always scrap my 2 pagers as a pair side by side, treating them as one extra wide page for the scrapbooking process.

        @umyesh, that was just luck. I had to fix it the day before because of my error so as soon as I fixed it then I did a back up immediately. I'd love to say this was the first time that error had shown up but it wasn't
