Rainy Day Fun


I took a day of vacation today to have my 25th wedding anniversary photos with Jorge taken, but rain has pretty much washed out that possibility.

I ended up playing with a digital scrapbooking program I bought from Creative Memories. Here is my first page. I'm going to use this program to create Kristin's senior scrapbook which we will display at her graduation open house next spring.

The best part: no cutting, no paper scraps, no running out of tape/glue. This may not be perfect, but it is still attractive (in my opinion) and oh so practical. I think my life just got a whole lot easier, folks.

Isn't technology wonderful? I remember having to cut, size, decorate, and glue my scrapebook. It was pretty messy. I think this would be wonderful for elementary teachers. My kindergarten teacher made a scrapebook and laminated each page for each of her 20 students.

I LOVE digital scrapbooking! I will never got back to paper. You can also download really cute free kits from shabbyprincess.com. Great layout!

I need to get on this bandwagon. I promised myself I wouldn't start the digital thing until all my scrapbook paper, stickers, borders, etc. were used up. I'm about to stick the whole lot in a bag and bring it to GoodWill. I just can't take the pressure.

Absolutely special! And you are right about the gift of daughters. This mother loves hers too!

What a beautiful scrapbook page! I wish I had the time and energy to keep up scrapbooking, but it's hard even for me to get my camera out. Good job!

Beautiful work, I LOVE your page. I, too, started digital scrapping but I have always preferred a 12 x 12 layout and when I started there were no printers that would do that size...now there are!

Sorry your photo day got rained out but you had fun anyway with a beautiful result!

PS>>> Shabby Princess does have GORGEOUS digi srapping elements!
