Challenge 3!

Here are the instructions for challenge 3:

Welcome to Scrappers Online. Some of you may have never visited us before. Yes, we have forums.
 And yes, we have a gallery. But really, what we are all about is learning. We ourselves are
constantly trying to grow as scrappers, and would like to share that journey with others.
 We are trying to collect tutorials for all the different software packages out there,
making us a central location for anyone who wants to learn about scrapping. And we're inclusive,
we have forums for hybrid, paper and stamping too.

So I am sure it will come as no surprise to you then that learning is part of what our challenge is all about.

We would like you to do a layout that includes selective colouring. We have two tutorials here,
Selective Colouring in Photoshop, and Selective Coloring in Paint Shop Pro. Not that you are
required to use these techniques, feel free to selectively colour any way you see fit. Our
requirement is that your layout has a focal photo, and that photo has some selective colouring in it.

We would also like to see some journaling. Scrapbooking is about sharing experiences, and we'd
like to hear a little about those experiences. So we ask that you include some journaling, at
least 20 words worth. And no, captions, titles or dates don't count towards your 20 words.
 Let's have some fun with the journaling, playing with colour to highlight, or using tags
or something to give selective emphasis to your journaling. Just put a selective focus on
a couple of your journaling words in some way. Be creative!

Speaking of dates, we want to see them. Half a century from now, when I'm long gone, I'd
like people be able to look at my layouts and know at least when stuff happened. We've
already covered the "what" with journaling, let's tell the whole story! And not just
typing the date somewhere on the page ... we know you all are closet date element hoarders
out there, lets see some of those fun and funky elements! Show us when the event was,
 when you journaled, share a date or two with us!

All layouts must of course be posted at NDISB challenge #3 gallery, but we ask that you
 also post a copy of your layout here in our ADSR 5 Gallery on our Challenge Wall.

Any questions regarding this challenge can be posted in this thread. We are generally
available from 6 AM EST to 2 AM EST. We will try to monitor the threads at NDISB too,
but our thread here will be the comprehensive list of answers to questions. Hopefully
we've made this clear enough that there won't be too many questions!

Thank you so much for coming to visit us at Scrappers Online, and we hope you find this
leg of the race to be a truly enjoyable learning experience. :-)

As a little check off list.. required parts are:

1. One focal photo with selective coloring
2. 20 or more words of journaling with possible highlights
3. At least one date element!

Here is the layout I completed:

Thanks for looking!
