If I can figure out how to do it, who knows, maybe it will break the ice for me, and I'll eventually be a full-time Photoshopper. But, one thing at a time! Thank you SO much Melanie!! :)

LOL. Thank you. As for the way I did that, it's called a clipping mask. I used a paint mask and "clipped" a paper to that mask. Here's a tutorial that Marisa did on clipping masks

Yes, it's me again. Now, I'm realizing that you could just post the answer right here under your own comments section. Double Duh!!!

Melanie, I realized a bit ago that you don't really have a way to contact me! LOL No worries, I've asked Marisa to help me by having her read the comment I left below. I'm sure she'll know the answer too. Anyway, once again: Great Layout!!

Hi Melanie! First of all, I LOVE this layout!! SOOO Beautiful *heart*. My question is how did you get that pink and white chevron-looking paper in the bottom right corner to be like that? I know it's got to be a Photoshop thing. I do actually have PSE installed but, never used it because it was way harder than the scrapbook software I'm used to, and I gave up right away and figured I just don't need it. But I see this effect done everywhere, and I want to be able to do this. I'd be willing to learn just for the sake of this one effect. (I could still use my old CraftArtist for everything else) I'm not, of course, asking you to teach me, but just tell me what PHRASE exactly would I type into YouTube search to find a PSE tutorial. I don't even know what to CALL it!!! Thank you so much :)

Beautiful! I love the painted background that you created and the blending on the photo.
