Digi page - David

Aaack - just realized that the other two pages I did are 8.5x11. So I changed this one to 12x12. Now here's my dilemma: Do I keep doing 8.5x11 so I can print them off on my printer or do 12x12 which is what most my books are?

Gotta a lot learn :) Thanks for stopping by, Susan

Digi Page - VA Beach

I'm new to digi scrapping and this is my second page. I used 5 different elements plus the background paper. These elements were from FREE digi kits I found at ComputerScrapBook. If you haven't found this site you gotta get over there. I've been downloading kits for 2 days :)

Now I have to organize them. I'm going to keep the kits together (alphas, elements, paper) and then put them in the main folders too. I know it will double store them but I think it will be the best way to find what I want or use particular kits together. Maybe one day I'll delete the kits.

I plan to spend time in my scrap room Saturday - have a wedding card to do and want to finish the VA Beach pics. I'll get to digi scrapbook next week while in Lexington, KY for a horse sale.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look see. Keep your heart open and let your creativity change someone's life. Susan

My First Digi page

I've toyed with digital scrapbooking but never gave it a chance. I found Scrapbook Factory Deluxe at Staples for $15 and figured - now's the time.

Here is my first digi page.

It's not much but it's a start. I may just like this. I can do it anywhere because all my pics are on the computer. Uh oh...I feel another compulsion coming on :)

Fabulous At Fifty

My sister turned fifty this year. Isn't she beautiful! We had a nice dinner at Joey Changs with her daughter and boyfriend.

Vacation Layouts

We went to Virginia Beach for vacation with my sister and her family. It was the weekend that Irene hit VA Beach. I'm thankful that there wasn't as much damage by this hurricane as was expected!

The guys and some of the girls went to Norfolk. My son takes GREAT pictures.

We stopped at Sumburger on our way to Roanoke, VA (which is where we stayed Saturday night until we knew whether we could get to our house at the beach.

David & Heather making faces into the camera - it was a loooooong trip.

The guys enjoyed golfing the first morning - we didn't get electric back until later that evening.

This Air Museum is privately funded - the guys were so impressed.

Love the background paper on both pages from Create With TLC (and the wordArt JFK quote)

There will be more pages coming. Spent Saturday scrapping with my girls at church and got 14 pages done.

Already thinking about vacation for next year! Thanks for stopping by, Susan
