IOD Layout

Okay, here's the story behind this challenge. I saw it last month on the IOD blog, bought the papers at MDW for it, and intended to enter. Unfortunately, I found out that my old version of Elements wouldn't work on my new Mac, and the requirement was to use digitally altered photos on their layout sketch. I thought about scanning some I had done before and printing them, but they were stuck in mini albums, and it was the end of the month, so I let it go. Lo and behold, when I checked the blog in February, I found that it had been extended to this month. I still don't have a new version of Elements, so my poor little pics had some color saturation in iPhoto and text added in Appleworks drawing (a little old school, uh?).  I really like the label paper. I eliminated one of the elements on the sketch so more of it was exposed. All in all, not a bad layout, and it came together quickly! (can't beat that!)
