Andrea of Keepin' It Thrifty sent me a message asking how I made this:
In order to make something like this, there are some steps you must follow.
First thing to do is go in to paint (I used the mac equivalent) and save a blank page. It sounds odd I know but you will use it every time you want to make a fun picture like the one above.
Now that you have a blank page at your disposal, upload it into picnick.

1. Now click on EFFECTS. Scroll down to DUO-TONE and select your color.
Bold Yellow is the color of choice in this photo.
I did not like the bright yellow and found it distracting so I changed it to gray.
After you choose your color, you can then create.
2. The apple tree is a 'sticker' and is listed in WHIMSY TREES under the Stickers tab.
You can drag the tree or tilt it side by side for extra affect.
3. I added Picnik Fun because I thought it would be just that; fun.
Click on TEXT and add your words in the box available. Pick your font and click APPLY.
4. I did the same thing for the flower to the left of the tree. I selected Stickers and chose the flower. You can change the color of the items too. I chose aqua blue for the flower.
Give this a try. It is really easy and a lot of fun. Let me know if you have questions.
I would also love to hear about how you use Picnik.
