October monthly special

Today I finally got a chance to work on the Take-Out Photo October monthly special!

Marc took the pictures of the kids in their Halloween costumes last year, which pretty much makes the whole thing. Still, I'm happy with the result.

It was fun, and now that I have a dot template, I think I'll do another!

Oh this is so great! I just got photoshop for my birthday in july... but haven't even started looking into it- oh boy-
NOW i REALLY WANT TO!

thanks marc & michelle

Denise said...

Wow. That's just about all I can say.

I need to look into those monthly challenges, but never seem to find the time. I love this one--maybe enough to actually find the time to try it! (Can I do it in Photoshop Elements? That's all I have.)

Jill said...

This looks great! What a great idea to do Halloween shots. I really want to do this challenge.

Lindsay said...

Very cute, Michelle!

Susan said...

Oh man, that is too cute!! Can we do something like that for the email blasts??? The photos are so cute and and template is great!!!

You inspire me!

melanie said...

Amazing Michelle!! I love this take on the monthly challenge. I totally plan on doing this one. Good job, I love it!!

marc said...

Looks great! I was hoping that someone would do a Halloween-themed dot grid. Maybe you will inspire some other readers to try out the dot challenge. Since you inspired me to revise and simplify the tutorial, it should be even easier.

carlo said...

oh the dot template is great!

very cool.

(and how lucky to have an "in" with the teacher! :)

Erin said...

I love this! How fun, fresh, and colorfull. What great pictures. The whole thing comes together perfect.

Blast! I'm about 6 months behind on the monthly challenge. Every month I swear I'm going to catch up and every month I'm still here.

Love the pictures.

I just noticed you put exclamation points next to your mom and Denise- too funny!

Marie said...

That looks like the cover of a Martha Stewart Halloween magazine! Which, incase you didn't know, is about the highest praise I can possibly give.

Laurie said...

Cute idea for the dots! I'm still planning to do this one too.

rmt said...

Love it! Great job!

Hannah said...

Oh I love this! I just made my template and almost have all the pics I want for it.

Amy said...

I love this. I'm brand spankin' new to Photoshop and tried to do this last night after I saw yours. Ha! Three hours later I had one (is it ridiculous that it took me so long?!)...but I'm waiting to post a perfected version! I'm excited to start joining all of the challenges (and kind of want to go back to past ones, too...no better way to learn PS I suppose).

Diana said...

wow that just looks amazing. Great job Michelle. I have looked at Marc's site I want to start doing the challenges but Lou is still working on our computer so we don't have photoshop on it yet.
Again, I love your halloween photos it looks great.

Coveting your photoshop.

This is darling and very fun for the holiday!

crystal said...

This looks so great! I want so badly to leap into the challenges, but the word "photoshop" gives me a stomachache. And I have a former-graphic-designer husband, even.

Ack! Photoshop=Anxiety

amy m said...

Love your take on his project. It looks perfect. Are you going to print it and hang it as decor this halloween?

Amie said...

I love the circle template! I really need to see what I can do about Marc's challenges... they are all skills I want.

Super cute.
