MAKE YOUR OWN CU CANDY HEARTS

No post yesterday as we went to the ISU game and watched the Redbirds march to their 14th win! They looked good too, hopefully they will do the same to Bradley, our arch rivals. So today I set up the light box and photographed some little candy hearts. The sayings on all of them were basically unreadable. So I did some photo editing and removed the sayings so the heart is plain. There are all 6 colors included in the zip and they are all 3" by 3". Then I made 36 "sayings" to place on the hearts. I ran a couple filters on the text and saved the sayings as a PS/PSE .abr file and as individual .pngs. You pick the color, pick the saying and stamp it on the heart! I also encourage you to make your own sayings or even make an alpha by placing a letter on each heart. Cute? Of course you can also stamp some custom shapes on the hearts, arrange them into a frame or other element. I thought they were fun and I had fun making them. I hope you can find some use for them. Not all sayings are shown in the preview and drop shadows for preview purposes only.

You just made the week of Feb 14's LO for Project 365 LOADS more fun!!

Of course, today's picture was of my husband's ORIGINAL Knight Rider Thermos (that yes, still works according to him) so we'll see how creative I am in a month and a half... So far I have champange, me in my husband's hockey jersey, a thermos and a pickup truck... we'll see how well it works :)

I just promised Connor "animal coloring time" tomorrow on the computer, so be on the look out for some more :)

Thanks for the hearts, they're beyond awesome.. they're nasty to eat but loads of fun to play with!!
