Some digi-scrapping love!

Sometimes I'm not in the mood to do anything but sit in front of the computer and push a few pixels, and that means only one thing: digi-scrapping! I love having this scrapping option available, even though it will never replace "real" scrapping for me. I love how it opens up new possibilities for style, as in this layout here:


Love this pic! I took it last year as a cover for the photo books I was making all the grandparents for Christmas. I tell ya, that 3 yards of black velvet was the best photo investment I ever made -- I just laid it out on the guest room bed (in front of the big window with the best light in the house) and got the kids to snuggle up together.

But it took a LOT of pictures to get a winner, and I couldn't let all those funny pictures go to waste, so I made another layout to go with the first. I created the elements in this layout myself, and the font is Scriptina.



This layout is another one for the extended-family scrapbook, so I'll be making copies for my mom and the parents of the nieces and nephews in the pic. It's such a great way to include my non-scrapping family in the memory-keeping process! This layout and the next use the free kit from Shabby Princess called "Happy Go Lucky."

This last layout is for a new album I'm starting with pictures from my childhood and older family photos. I'm doing these in 8.5x11 size so I can easily print them and put them in a book with all the papers I've saved from those early years.

These are lovely Tomi!! I especially love the ones with your three kids on the black velvet.

See, now if I was as good as you are with the digital, I might enjoy it more. It looks like your night was more productive than mine....

Hugs,
