@AnneofAlamo and @cfile - This is kind of for both of you. Christa, I think it was you who did a tutorial on "cutting" and I remember how excited I was when I cut my first shape on a layout and you told me how to shadow it. If that tutorial is on the list, what would the name of it be? I don't see anything like that (but I'm not sure what it's called). Here's the layout I created, you'll be able to see what I'm talking about.
