Happy Garden and Drop Shadows

We loved this layout using a Full Pack by Traci Murphy called Happy Garden. It's so versatile and doesn't have to be used for a typical "girly" layout (although the boys might disagree with me). Look how so little text is used, but the message of the layout is pretty clear.

Tip: Don't forget to add drop shadows to your embellishments to give them more depth. For those of you that haven't used "drop shadows" you might need to know that drop shadows can be added to text, photo boxes and embellishments. Two of the best tips about using drop shadows are 1) you can change the color of your drop shadow to give different look and 2) the easiest way to move your drop shadow around is to click on it with your mouse and move it around. It's a simple feature that is often overlooked!
