First Photoshop Creation

Wow...who knew learning Photoshop Elements was going to be so complicated to learn. Santa brought me Photoshop Elements 7 and a Bamboo Tablet for Christmas. It took me almost an hour to get the frame on this picture.  If anyone knows any good tutorials, please leave links in the comment area. I would appreciate the help.

The image is from Artchix for a coloring contest on facebook. I colored the image with Prisma colored pencils and then scanned it into the Photoshop program for enhancements. Well, tried to anyway. So much to learn...but having fun figuring out what all the buttons are for.

I am entering this creation in the following challenges:

Artchix - facebook coloring challenge
Creative Moments - anything goes
Crafty Sentiments - new (used a new program)
Paper Take Weekly - anything goes
Simon Says Challenge - something new (new program)
Inky Impressions - #91 anything goes
Pixie Dust - new to me
Cute Card Thursday - #250 something new
Crafts4Eternity - #105 something new
Totally Paper Crafts - something new
Avenue 613 - anything goes
Simon Says Stamp & Show - embrace the old

Wonderful project. The Victorian Essence is definitely captured here. Good Luck with elements 7. I tried it and then lapsed back to Photoshop 7/8 which I understand! Thanks for stopping by and leaving such a wonderful housewarming gift at Avenue 613 Create. We hope you will be a frequent visitor!
Hugz,
