I decided it was time to start and in time finish Rohan's book, I'm giving www.blurb.com a go for publishing the book as they are widely used by alot of proffessional photographers and smaller book publishers, very reasonably priced to. I hope you enjoy following along with the process of my making this .

At first I thought I'm going to do all four of my boys at once but have since decided that it would be good for me to do one at a time and set myself smaller more achievable goals as that method helps me to overcome procrastination
This is a small preview of the dust jacket for my book of Rohan, yes blurb have dust jackets on the hardcover books- woohoo!
Well I better get back to filling up my pages and going through my large collection of photos to try and work out which ones I must have in his book, no easy task I must say.

Rohan on an extracted swing hanging from pinned wool, back cover of book
I had a great deal of fun making this layout, I've been wanting to make a hanging swing using some kind of string for ages, so I thought it might be really nice on the back cover of Rohans book, that I'm making him.
Oh and of course I just had to try that photo extraction method I saw on a tutorial site, I might have to go and hunt down that link, it was a while ago now. Deb Mommens inspired the faded image in the background , because her pages always look wonderful using that technique
Photo popping out or photo frame tutorial links or out of bounds tutorials:
All these next links are care of Kori Dorn and her research:

Also highly recommended:
A few more:
( I love this it has a whale jumping out of the photo frame! a must see!)
For ideas on your own (or just to oh and ah at what other's have come up with)
thank-you Kori, all these techniques really helped me to do what i wanted to do with my book cover
Here is the muddy boy I promised. With this layout I like to use a technique I accidently discovered and thought you may want to do it also. I like for my digital scrapbooking albums to have matching 2 page spreads in the album I think it looks more balanced when looking through a printed digital album, it doesn't matter so much on the DVD slide shows but makes a real difference in the hard bound albums.
What I do to quickly come up with a corresponding page it to go into my photoshop program and choose : IMAGE (under the menu)> scroll down to ROTATE CANVAS > then select FLIP CANVAS HORIZONTAL and repeat this step but choose >FLIP CANVAS VERTICAL
then I swapped the background papers to be a little more different, you may have to drag another background paper into your project if you have cut and altered your origainal piecs like me. I use the piece from the original document and make it selected and then inverse that selection , make sure the background paper I want to cut from is selected in the layers palette and cut that way I get a perfect copy of the shape of the original. Then I just flip all the objects/elements that are up the wrong way with EDIT>TRANSFORM>FLIP HORIZONTAL etc...
add in more photos to follow the story of the previous layout and add some texting effects ,time stamps and titles.
I got this texting effect from the wonderful Linda Sattgast from www.scrappersguide.com she has some wonderful free video Adobe photoshop and elements tutorials weekly and if you miss one you can still purchase it in the store for a $1.00, they are really easy to follow for the beginner and not very overwhelming at all.
This title I got from the www.peppermintcreative.com phraze guide, a wonderful resource when you want a phraze in a hurry, I like how she has categorised the titles. I also like to ink the edges of my photos with a brown and use the atomic cupcake action tornink to do this.
The kit I used to make this layout is called the blushbutter ~ Boy! Oh Boy! kit LINK HERE
thank's for looking
If your looking for ruffled lace,spotted ribbons, little aged books, vintage toys for your altered art creations look no further than my friend Lara Paytons collection of kits you will find a wide variety of the most uniquely equisitely crafted graphics. I know that Lara goes to great lengths for her creations to be a little different than the generic kits pushed out daily on other sites. For her like myself time needs to be spent on perfecting her graphics to be the best she can possibly make them. She is also very modest and possibly never quite happy with her art, like all great artists her own worst critic. She is currently busy perfecting some more special elements and bits and peices for her next kit and I'll just say that you are going to not be able to resist the purchase of it! Lara is a generous woman too, and if you pop into her blog from time to time you will find a freebie to snatch, but please leave a note to say thank's as it always helps with the inspiration to be more giving in the future.
