    I enjoyed the links you gave! I really like that one on justified text and can’t wait to try it!

    How sweet of you to mention some of my articles. I am always too timid to sumbit them myself.

    You did a great work at the carnival and love the fun graphic. I do hope more will continue to learn about it and how easy it is to give warm fuzzies to others by submitting them to the next carnival.

    Great list K, thanks for hosting the carnival and I can’t wait to try out some of the links.

    Great carnival, Karen – love how you put it together – and I can’t wait to try some of the links!

  6. Antoinette September 18, 2007 at 7:50 am #

    Some great links there Karen – thanks! Will keep me occupied this weekend :)
    Too bad so many tutorials are for PSE or PS, I only use PSP and those tutorials are a minority. Hmm… I feel a post about PSP links coming up! (Just learned that posting a “link-post” is a great blog idea – ha!)

    Antoinette made me smile….I read that great post too!

    Glad that everyone’s enjoying the Carnival. I enjoyed hosting this round.
    Hey Antoinette, if I wasn’t about to go on holidays I’d do a post for you on PSP tutorials. If you haven’t done it by the time I get back, remind me and I’ll do one on Scraps of Mind.

    Thanks DreamScrapper. I’m pretty taken with that graphic myself.

    Thanks for the links here. You’ve certainly run a terrific carnival for us to enjoy. The tutorials look very interesting to me and I really need to set aside some time to play at designing again!

    Continue having fun on your trip! Looking forward to your return.
