We have our original members:
and welcoming to the team:
and last but not least Susan Rodriguez!
There were a lot of entries that made this decision extremely difficut.
For this reason, we added Creative Team Guest positions that will last one month.
Congratulations to the following EDS Creative Team Guest Members:
We continue our focus on Word Art with two more great layouts. Enjoy!
My bad: I owe a huge apology to Maggie as I keep calling her Maggie D. instead of Maggie Lamarre!!!!

All these pieces...these sweet little pieces of you have some how...some
way... made me whole.
To create the effect in my title, I typed out the word "Pieces" and changed
the color to a deep red. I then duplicated the title and changed the color
to white. In the Styles and Effects Palette, I selected Effects, then
clicked on Medium Outline (type). I drug the style on top of my title to get
the thin white outline you see. Next I reduced the opacity, slightly
enlarged it and put it on a minor tilt. I duplicated this layer once more,
using the same process.

To place my photo in the center of the "O", I first typed out the word "BOY"
and enlarged it to cover the span of my page. I then created a round-edged
square the same size as the "O" and in the layers palette moved it directly
under my large title. Above this layer, I added my photo and "clipped" it to
the square using the Ctrl+G command.
