My New Hobby - As if I Needed One!!

Here it is!

My Very First Digital Scrapbook Page!

Photoshop Elements arrived in the mail tonight! And I just HAD to try it before bed. I REFUSE to look at the clock right now. And I'm NOT thinking about all of the other stuff I was SUPPOSED to be doing tonight. It was fun to stay up late and play.

There is going to be a learning curve to this way of scrapping, but (unfortunately) I'm hooked already.

Hmmm- As if homeschooling, housecleaning, parenting, writing, blogging, ministry, etc. weren't enough-

I guess I needed a new hobby! LOL. A girl's gotta have some fun, right?

This page involved lots of trial and error, free downloads and online tutorials, and sort of ended up this way on accident, but I'm happy with the result. I can't wait to learn some new techniques. (And I'm not sure if it will look good printed, we'll see)

I've been watching my sister-in-law share her pages on her blog and decided I had to give it a try. I've always loved scrapbooking, but I can't keep up with the mess and supplies and time commitment of the traditional paper albums. So Angie, it's all your fault!!

Hi Becky! I was just catching up on your blog and saw this - about digital scrapbooking!! I'm so impressed with your work!

I have been digital scrapbooking for about 5 years and am totally addicted - so fun! I use Photoshop Elements also or a really cool software program called Fotofusion.

There is a LOT of info online about it and lots (read overwhelming amount) of FREE stuff you can download to use.

Hope all is going well with your family....I miss seeing you at Bible study!
