Hello, everyone

Dani here to another fun exchange. Since we are having a lot of stuff about birthday in our community I chose A Moment in Life because birthdays are precious moments in life and we don't get overwhelmed by cupcakes and candles. :laugh:

Here are the previews of the kit and coordinated packs. They are all 25% off.

Here is my gift to all the participants. 3 Brag Book QPs and 3 coordinated papers.



* Each participant will submit at least 1, 4X6 brag book page but not more than 3 using this kit only (but you may include any commercial use supplies as well). Please put all of your pages on 1 preview page to upload to the gallery to prevent any non-participants from using these pages.
* Sign-ups are requested for this so that we know who is working on pages. Post here to say you are planning on participating.
* Layouts should be created and saved at 4" x 6" and 300ppi starting with a transparent background. Your photo areas should be transparent when you are done.
* If you are not familiar with the process of creating a quick page, we have a couple of tutorials to help you in this area: Paint Shop Pro (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1399) & Photoshop (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1385)
* If you are unable to create a .png file, please design your quick page by creating your layout and using a white or black area (whichever is of most contrast to your layout) for the photo placements. Save your layout as a flattened .jpg file at full resolution (unless you are submitting a png file already). Please share this file and then post in this thread that you need help poking the holes for the pictures and I will help do those for you.
* Please name your files as follows to help me track these easier. YourForumName_KitName_bb1.png so as an example, mine would be scrappintwins_merrymerry_bb1.png.
* Post your preview of your bb pages all on one layout at 600x600 and upload it to the Brag Book Exchange Gallery (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showgallery.php?cat=704)for everyone to see!
* I will need the .png or .jpg file at the full 4X6 size for each brag book page you submit. Please do not upload the preview to the QP folder below...just the png quick page files.

****NEW***: In an effort to get you the albums much quicker after the exchange is over, we're implementing a new way for us to share the files.
* Please upload JUST THE FULL PNG FILES to the A Moment in Life Exchange (http://www.4shared.com/dir/19859919/efe9a521/amomentinlifebb.html) folder.
* Toward the bottom of the screen you will see an "Upload Files" small window. Click the browse button inside there and navigate to your PNG files and choose that to upload.
* Your computer will then upload the file so it may take a minute or two. After the upload is completed, you will not see anything in this folder or even see anything to tell you it was successful but I'll let you know if there's a problem.
* Please post here that you uploaded so I can make sure it came through OK.
* Once the exchange is over, I will figure out who hasn't uploaded or has a problem with their files and when all is good will make it so that you can see all the files that everyone uploads and then you can download them!
* The submission deadline for this round is end of the day on September, 20th 2009. Please have your images posted and uploaded by then so I can get them out to everyone.

I love to try this one ?
I believe I have to make some qp from the papersa and elements in the kit.
Correct me if I'm wrong. Just bought the kit and it's beautiful.

Yup, that is what you do
Use the items in the kit to make the brag brook sized pages

Hope you have fun!
The kit is wonderful!

I've made my brag book pages. But can't seem to get the pictures replaced. I've tryed the tutorial, but it doesn't work for me. Still learning.
Is there another way?

Nancy, what you have to do is cut out the picture you have from the layers below it to make a transparent shape where the picture is. If you're in PS or PSE, control-click on the icon for your picture layer--that selects the whole picture. Then select the layer name for each layer below the picture, such as the background(s) and any elements BEHIND the picture. Hit the delete key and that removes the part behind the photo. Lastly, delete the photo layer, and you should be left with a transparent box where the photo was. All elements on top of the photo (frame, cluster elements) should still be in place. Do a "Save As" for the layout, making it a PNG file (this flattens the layout and leaves the transparent box) with the naming rules Dani has given in the instructions.
Hope this helps!

Thanks for the challenge. I was thinking it ended the end of the month. I had to hurry. Have been uploaded to 4shared.

And here they are in the gallery.

I couldn't get the pictures out of the way, so I replaced them with a black background paper
