My latest passion.....



My latest passion is digital scrapbooking. Its kinda like being creative without the mess..... :-}
My biggest lesson here is to learn patience. Most of my layouts are done in an evening. After the kids are fed and bathed and all the necessities for the night are done - I sit down and fiddle. If i start a layout i usually get it done in one night. I need to learn to leave it for a few days and come back and back to it. Here are my favourite layouts of my kids, my favourite subjects.




























I really need to get a grip because at first glance these look ok - when i sit and look i see more and more faults. Is that my overload of Virgo or because they are rushed and bad.
Buggered if i know.
Anyway - here they are. Its like cutting open your chest sometimes isnt it ...... these blogs.
MOTH is wanting to get on the computer now - so gotta go....
luv jen

Do you use the Online Scrapbooking you have linked with your page or do you have your own software to create your scrapbooking pages? I am interested in having a go and I really like what you have done so far!

I certainly gain inspiration from 2peas and many others. One of the great things at 2peas is their free online tutorials. You need a graphics program like Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro etc to create the layouts although i created my first one in Microsoft Publisher (it is very limited though). There are HEAPS of digital scrapping websites out there - just google it or i am happy to send you some links. Most sites provide freebies, e.g. digital papers, elements, word art etc., you just need to visit often. www.freedigitalscrapbooking.com is a great place to start.
You go girl and have fun - and make sure you send me the link to your wonderful creations!!!!!
luv jen
