Thank you all very much who commented about this kit, and who downloaded it, of course. 🙂
There have been so many comments about the lace. Here are some Paint Shop Pro tutorials, some of which I used to learn how to make the elements in the kit:
I got rather bored sometime yesterday, just can’t get into McCarthy’s writing style. I’ll give it another shot later on, but I think I’ll probably abandon the trilogy, and probably take The Road off of my TBR list. Anyway, back to my being bored … 🙂
So, I started playing around with the Summer’s End kit, making a 7 page brag book. A brag book, for those who don’t know, is like a mini-scrapbook. The kind that doting grandmas can pull out of their purse to show off those pictures. Mine are created 500 x 300 pixels because I don’t like the drag time I get in PSP when working with large images.
Above: This is Yoda, named for his ears and the fact that he always looks so serious, sleeping on the lawnmower of all things. Don’t ask why, I haven’t the faintest idea!
Below: The one looking at you is Hero, I think, and the one in the branch is Bear.
Below: Hero is in one picture, and Hershey in the other. It’s rather difficult to tell them apart when they’re in shadow.

Update 2/24/2015: I’ve gone through all of my links and deleted all of those for 4shared. My account there has been discontinued. Unfortunately, this means that many of my early kits are no longer available. If I can find the time, I may attempt to recreate and/or redo some of them.
