Mojo Monday Card (even though it's Thusday already...)

I am starting my post this evening asking for assistance from all of you expert bloggers out there! I am having a lot of problems copying images from other websites to my blog posts (ex. the sketch from the Mojo Monday challenge). I have been copying the screen page, pasting it into Microsoft Paint, resizing the part I want to copy to fit a full page, recopying it to another Paint screen and then saving it. Often, the picture ends up distorted as it has been increased in size so much. There must be an easier way to do this. I wanted to add the Heart 2 Heart inspiration photo but I could only make it a half a page in size without distorting it way out of proportion since it is a wide photo this week, so I have this empty bottom half of my page that I have to copy and then I can't put anything in that empty space... Anyone have any ideas to make this process easier??

Meanwhile, here is the Mojo Monday sketch for this week, and my interpretation of the sketch.  
I know you have seen a lot of projects using Magnifique paper lately, but my favourite paper pack is about to retire in a few weeks, so I have to get the most use out of it as possible before that time!
Enjoy, 
Alyson

  2. Cute card! You should just be able to right-click on the image you want and then click "save image as" in the menu that pops up. It doesn't matter what size it is because blogger will resize it for you...you can choose the photo size when you upload the photo. Does that answer your question? If not, email me (jaymalew[at]gmail.com). I'm pretty blog/tech savvy :)
