Template 24, Eating Cake, and New Siggy

We had another speed scrap tonight, and I turned my LO into template 24 for you to enjoy:) I also made a new signature, using some papers I made. I still need to do the elements, but the papers are done:D I really like using my own stuff to make pages these days.

Ooo, some awesome news!! I bought CS4 today!!! YAY! John is a student, so we were able to get the full extended version for $189!!! It's normally $1000. Sweeeet! It's the student license, since that's all they had at the school bookstore, but that's not going to be an issue. From what I read on Adobe's site about it, we just have to install it ONLY on ONE personal computer and not resell the program (why would we?!). Of course, it's going on MY comp;) John doesn't know how to do anything with graphics, and if he needs something, he asks me to do it anyway. I'm excited!! I haven't installed yet, since I didn't want to have to re-learn where things are during a speed scrap! Plus, I'll need to import all my brushes, actions, and layer styles. I'll probably install it tomorrow:D

I made a new signature for BAM. I made everything in it, too:) I had issues editing the middle photo, and I don't think I'll ever be able to get it JUST right. Ah well. I still think it's cute. Here's my new sig:

And now for the speed scrap. These were the rules:

1. Use an even number of photos, all photos need to be in color.
2. Use at least 5 pieces of paper, at least one must be a square.
3. Use at least 2 frames.
4. Use a fastening element.
5. Add a ribbon.
6. Add something white.
7. Add three more elements
8. Use at least one font and one alpha in your title.

And here's my page:

Almost everything - me, BAM color challenge 2
Fastener - NewLife Dreams, Happy Birthday
Glitter styles - Kimi's Kreations, BAM color challenge 2
Atomic Cupcake action - colored chrome

I think I'm in the running this round, though I didn't get many comments on it, which generally implies ambivalance. So who knows. I think it's one of the better pages this round;) But I don't think I can vote for myself;)

Aaaanyway, I made a template out of my LO to share. Template 24 is a single page LO in PSD format. I would LOVE to hear back from you and see your pages with my templates or kits! Here's the preview:

You can download it here.

Template 25 is in the works, so be on the lookout! I may or may not get to it tonight; we'll see. Anyway, that's it for now!
