Sheryl says, "My favorite scrapbooking technique is that I love to take all the color out of a picture and just leave just a little color in it -- like I have done on this layout of my great niece I made it all black and white except for her eyes. I do that with my Adobe Photoshop Elements 4.0. The reason I do this is so I can use almost any colors for back grounds and I can use my imagination on what I thought what colors would be in the pictures."
I love this technique! Here's a layout where I used the same technique.
