    OK girls, just throwing this out there to see if anyone has any suggestions...

    I'm looking for a really specific type of clip art, or background, or icon- I guess I don't know for sure what to call it. I want to use something like this on a particular page of my wedding photobook and I just can't find the right thing.

    I'm looking for something kinda floral or abstract, that cascades- I've seen it in invitations, advertisements, catalogs, etc. Whiteaisle has a ton of these types of backgrounds and graphics...

    I'd love to find a source for this type of clip art- I'd gladly pay for it, but I just can't FIND it! I'm obviously not as good of a googler as I though so I was hoping maybe one of you might have a good graphics source...

    Here are a couple examples that I've "borrowed" from various places, but neither of these are exactly the right thing, although the first two are the closest.

      I have a print shop program that I use for a lot of things but I wonder if you could create something like this?

        I've kinda wondered if I'll have to resort to that. I have no idea how to do it, but I imagine I could figure it out? I'd rather just buy it though! I feel lazy.

        I have the print shop 21 I think they are up to something crazy like 25, but they also have scrapbooking programs (I am surprised Lumapix doesn't have the background in thier scrapbooking stuff).
        The scrapbooking programs might have backgrounds like that.

          Lumapix has some scrapbooking stuff, but not much, and nothing that would work in this case. I know- bummer- they need to get with the program!

              Sarah, this is a link with instruction on how to design your own paper. It requires photoshop (which I don't have )

                You girls rock!

                Jill, that last one is exactly what I need- but it's $274! If I thought I'd use it for more stuff I'd think about buying it. Hmmm....so what did you search for?

                Amy- I'll have to play around with it to see if i can do it in Photoshop Elements, that's all I have right now.

                Thanks so much girls~! I'll have to play around with this some more tonight- DH is on his way home, and I've gotta go make dinner :)
