I also used her LOTS OF LAYERS 2 template pack (it was part of the MARCH TEMPLATE GRAB BAG which is now available as separate packs) available at Funky Playground Designs
These photos are from a photo shoot on FM 439 in Nolanville! Even though a Dollar General has been open on the corner for about 2 years now, they have left it wild all around the store (it's really not IN TOWN!) and it has always been a great place to photography specimen wildflowers! I also was able to identify at least 4 of the 6 or 7 different butterflies I say there on Wednesday.
I also joined the Elements challenge at Hummie's World for April. Our goal in the Elements challenge is 5 projects, and I've already done 3 of them.

7a (no layout) 7b font organizer - I could use "the font thing" because it doesn't work in Windows 7 http://the-font-thing.en.softonic.com/ but I was able to find one called AMP font viewer http://www.ampsoft.net/utilities/FontViewer.php that allows me to temporarily load a font to use, and then it is removed when I close PSE. That keeps the load of "too many fonts" from slowing down your computer! Here's my layout with a temporarily loaded font ...
