Help with Printing???

I am having issues printing exactly what I see on my screen to my printer. The colors are never the same and I can't seem to figure out what is wrong.The pictures show my Photoshop settings and my printer settings. I have a mac laptop, Photoshop CS2 and an Epson R1800. I always print on Epson paper so I know that my paper is not the issue. Can anyone help me out?

School 2010 Layout

Without further's the school layout of the first day of school. I used some new stuff and old stuff I had been coveting for a while...

Matteo started 2nd grade and Elisa started 1st's amazing how fast these little ones are growing...I can hardly pick them up anymore.

Paper is from Webster's Pages and cardstock is all Stampin'Up. Brads and ribbon are from Stampin'Up. Stamps are from Fontwerks (really miss that company) and PapertreyInk.

Bind-It-All Fall Project

Ok...remember I told you that I took a BIA class? This is one of the projects we made...a little 4X4 album. I really enjoyed making this little book; it was my first time at using corrugated board (which I am in love with now) and finally breaking in my Hambly rub-ons.

Bind-It-All Guide

This is my beloved Bind-It-All Guide. I have had this machine for a while now but I really needed help in figuring out how to use it properly so I took this amazing online class from Nan Natuzo and she made us all make a wonderful and useful guide to help us bind our projects perfectly every time!!!

Elisa's 6th Birthday Invitation

Hello blogland,

I have been busy just settling in our new place, organizing the house (especially the new scrap room), driving the kids at different events, working out (finally after a year of laziness) and playing around with my scrap/stamp goodies.

Oh...and Elisa's birthday is coming up in a few weeks and, as always, I made the party invitations. I used a plethora of new things I had bought over the last few months. The ribbon pulls up to reveal the party details.

Sunshine Award

My really good friend Michelle from California sent me this award the other day totally catching me off guard. I've not been really good at posting lately...most of you know about my third move of the year and the flood so I am not going into any additional details.

Here is the award that Michelle gave me:

This award had some rules attached:

1) Put the award on your Blog

2) Pass the award on to other bloggers who bring sunshine into your life

3) Link the Nominees in your post

4) Let them know you nominated them by leaving a comment on their blog

5) Share the love and link to the person who gave you the award

So here is my list of some people who bring sunshine to my life:

1. Giovanna Irde (but I always call her Gio')...can't wait to meet her face to face this summer
2. Serena Aratri (the happy stamper; check out her stamps at Impronte D'Autore)
3. Sabrina Rovatti (currenty living in Switzerland but a gypsy just like me)
4. Anthonette Chavez (also in California but never met in person...can you believe that?)
5. Joanne Travis (in rainy Seattle and you would never know that from all the bright and wonderful goodies she creates)
6. Brandi Wiggins (probably doesn't even know she brings sunshine in my life with all her inspiring works of art)

So while I'm here posting, I thought I would share a few things:

Here's the beginning of my new scraproom

Here's a Maya Road prize I won last month:

And here are a few last purchases:

Hope you will all have a wonderful weekend!!!
