This week we had a tie for the Layout Of the Week winner, but the two layouts were both created by Jen (vcjordi).  How exciting! All of the layouts rocked as usual, but here are the winning LO’s. Click the images to leave her some love in the gallery.

Don’t forget to vote for the next LOTW winner in the forum. You can be a LOTW winner too. All you have to do is scrap! Happy Scrapping.

Another helping of “The Dish”

Hey everyone!  It’s Tabby here bring you this weeks edition of “The Dish”.  I think this is such a fun little column (I’m not sure what the correct term is for the blogging world, lol) that we do.  If you’ve never asked a question for The Dish make sure you stop by our forum here and give it a go!

We had two new questions posted this week.

The first one pertains to Meta Data and tagging your photos.  Metadata is pretty new to me but from what I have gathered, Windows allows you to tag your photos and such using this “Metadata” to make it easier to find a photo of a certain person or even later on.  For example, your dog Rover, or your trip to New York.  The easiest way I have found to do this is to tag your photos using your photo editing or viewing program.  I view all of my .jpg and .png files in Picasa and it is very easy to tag in that program.

If there is a way to add the metadata from windows or if any of our readers have some insight as to an easy way of doing it we would love to have your comments as I am a complete novice in this area and could use some direction myself!

The second question is from Lynelle.  She asks, “I feel like I’m always going all over digitown to blog, Facebook and Twitter. Fortunately I use Firefox so I have all of my frequently used sites bookmarked in my toolbar. How do you make your life easier when it comes to posting on your blog, Facebook page and Twitter page?”

My simple answer is Yoono.  It’s free to add on to Firefox and syncs up your Yahoo Messenger, Facebook, and Twitter accounts.  I love Yoono because you can leave it open in your browser so that you never miss a beat!  You can download the free program here.  I haven’t found a program yet that integrates the blog posting but I’m sure there is one out there.

Thanks for reading the blog.  I can’t wait to see what questions you leave us to answer next week!
