ISSUE #7 JUNE 2011
Dads... I always thought of myself as "Daddy's Girl". I wasn't a "tom boy", or "sporty" enough to make myself a particularly obvious choice as "Daddy's Girl". I knew my Dad wanted his second child - me- to be a boy, so I focused on making up for my double X chromosome. As a child, I didn't really care what he was doing that day, I just wanted to do it with him. I remember once being terrified to go on the Disney ride "Pirates of the Caribbean", his favorite, but there was no way I was going to disappoint, so off I went. He sat close, held my hand and we had a high seas adventure together. He taught me to face fear and don't let it stop you. As a teen, I remember once having my heart broken by a reckless crush. He sat close, held my hand and let me feel that hurt. He taught me to face heartbrake. As an adult, we lost my mom and his wife of 40 years. We cared for her together for eight years before her death. At her funeral, he sat close, held my hand and we grieved. Through that experience, he taught me to face loss and the real meaning of love. So, in celebration of the Dad's in our lives, I hope you take a minute to scrapbook a page about your Dad with these kits!

  Sensational Colors
Dads today come in numerous forms. No more can you assume the basic black and tans for a layout about dad! Today's dad needs far more color, dimension and artistry to capture his style! That is why this month the color scheme turns up the volume on our Dads.

Tint An Image
The occasion may arise when you want to slightly tint an entire photo or artwork graphic to change its color. Tinting a photo is useful if you want the photo to match the rest of the page as a special effect. Tinting an artwork graphic is useful if you want to change its color so it complements the rest of the artwork on the page.

Fortunately, tinting a photo is very easy to do in iScrapbook and the original photo is not modified.
Here's how to tint an image:

1) Launch iScrapbook.
2) Select a scrapbook page.
3) Select the photo or artwork graphic you want to tint.
4) Choose "Effects" at the top of the Smart Inspector.
5) Choose "Tint" from the Effect pop-up menu.
6) Click the color well in the Smart Inspector and choose a color.
7) Slide the Intensity slider to your desired intensity.

Your image will be tinted accordingly. Below is an example of tinting both a photo and artwork graphic with a blue tint:
