Pretty up your Facebook Timeline

I am a digital scrapbooker.  I have lots of digital papers, elements, etc. stored on my hard drive (I’m a digital hoarder.  It’s a problem.  I’m working on it).

I thought the natural thing to do would be to make my Facebook cover pretty with them.  (If you are new to Timeline, check it out here)  I’ll show you how.


1. First, open a new project in Photoshop Elements (you can do this in any image editing program)


2. Then add your elements, photos, etc.  I used ones from the free kit at Persnickety Prints.

3. Save the file, then open your FB profile page.  On the lower right corner of your timeline cover photo, hover your cursor and the pull down menu will appear that says “Change Photo.  Select “Upload Photo”.

4. Sit back and smile smugly while your friends are impressed.

I hope to do more digi-scrapping this coming year.  Share some of your pages here please!

Fall In New England

Feels like I do one of these posts every year.  I took the kids apple picking yesterday (Columbus Day) and it was absolute insanity.  I guess everyone wanted to be out in the beautiful sunshine and fantastic photo ops.  Unfortunately, I was very uncomfortable due to some back problems I’ve been plagued with since my pregnancy with Little One.  I did get a couple of cute shots but none that I am crazy about.  (Of course, I’m crazy about the subjects!)

I’m working on the cursed Halloween costume for DD6…Wonder Woman.  I am dyeing a light pink leotard since red long sleeved leotards are apparently impossible to find locally.  The satin continues to be my nemesis.  I can hear it mocking me all the way from my crafting studio.  “Swish, swish…jusssssssst try and sssssssew white ssssatin ssssstarsssssss to my ssssilky sssssurface…”  Eff you, SATIN.

Next on deck…gold lame for the headpiece and belt.  This is quickly becoming Project: What the Hell Have I Gotten Myself Into? (Or Project: WTHHIGMIO)

Have you made a Facebook timeline yet for your profile?  It’s pretty cool-looks very streamlined and personalized.  If you haven’t yet, follow these steps to make your page pretty!  One thing to remember: only the friends who have also done this to their profiles will have a Timeline page visible to you.  In other words, Old Uncle Jack probably won’t have it.  Until it rolls out to the general public, that is.

In other news… anyone else dying for the release of iOS5?????
