New Alpha, Pearls for Michelle

My granddaughter, Michelle, will be turning 18 in June, and since her birthstone is a pearl, I decided to make this alpha for her; her favorite color is (or was -- with a teenager, these things can change from day to day! *laughs*) purple, so with the help of Color Schemer, I cobbled up a theme on that and complimentary colors.

The idea for the alpha came from Shawna's Wire Word Tutorial at Scrap Stuff with PSP. She has some of the coolest tutorials I have seen, both for Paint Shop Pro and for Photoshop. My only disappointment is that she hasn't posted any new tutorials in a while, but I keep hoping to visit some day soon and find some new things to amaze me!

As said in the post below, the usual rules apply, so I won't repeat them because that gets SO boring... but if you need a reminder, my TOS is in the right hand column just a bit down the page. The preview of the alpha and the 4shared link are below. I hope you enjoy the alpha!

Love Beads Alpha

Hello, all! I know it's been a while since I have posted anything new, but I have been going through something of a creative drought, not only with my scraps and my alphas but with my writing as well. Hopefully my new alpha, Love Beads, will cause the drought to dry up, so to speak, and I can get back to all of my creative endeavors with a new spark of inspiration!

Love Beads is intended to be a Valentine alpha, but you may use it for other projects if you wish. The usual rules apply... do not tear the alpha apart, use it in combination with other alphas, claim it as your own creation, blah, blah, blah...

If you are only collecting, I hope you enjoy the alpha, but if you are using it on a web page, a link to my blog is a requirement of use. You may use it for sig tags or extras, but when sharing those, I would be most grateful if you would share my link so others can visit, and I can increase traffic to the blog. Preview of the alpha is below, as is the link to the zip on 4shared. Enjoy!
