CU Layered Templates - The Dragonflies!

Whew, I actually got something done today besides designing today's freebies! My DH told me when I came home for lunch today that his mother and father are coming this evening. UGH! My house was a complete mess. So as soon as I got home from work I vacuumed and dusted and scrubbed my house so that they wouldn't think a bunch of piggies live here. Then my DH stops by for his dinner (he works 2nd shift, I work 1st) and tells me that he was mistaken, they aren't coming over tonight. So I guess I should be thankful that at least my house got cleaned, even if our guests didn't come.

While at work today I happened to do a walking beat at Hobby Lobby. Don't laugh, our bosses encourage "community policing" and so I check out my favorite craft stores for the latest finds. And I found some adorable little bug stickers that I thought I could scraplift into templates for you. Now, as you know - I can't draw. But luckily PSE knows how to draw circles and ovals and I can arrange those to make something that looks like dragonflies. The stickers had "googly eyes" and I first thought about buying some and photographing them in my ghetto light box but I decided instead to try and make them in PSE. And I think my "eye" turned out pretty good! I will finish up in tomorrows post with the other critters but here are the dragonflies! The download .zip includes .PSD files for each dragonfly and .png parts for each so they should work for everyone. I also included the example dragonflies in the preview image if you would like to see what they look like when finished. And just in case, for whatever reason, you would happen to want a googly eye to use in your designs I am sharing that too! LOL.

Thank you SO much for some more of your INCREDIBLE goodies. Oh, I about fell off my chair with the GHETTO LIGHTBOX!!! And, I'd like to make one of those too!
