moving on...

I guess since I'm done with Halloween and pumpkins, I'll scrap our first real snow storm this year, which we are still in the middle of!
Kit is Warm Wishes by Isabelle Mendez, which I got on a sale at and also a few freebies I picked up from a bloghop a few weeks ago. Main paper is from Connie Prince. I had my first 10 layouts printed at Persnickety Prints. I have to say, I am very impressed with how they came out, though everything is quite a bit bigger than I pictured it! Funny how different things can look on the computer screen! LOL! the quality of the prints is awesome, I will definitely be doing that again!

Last of the pumpkins - digi

Alrighty! I am done scrapping all things relating to Halloween and pumpkins for 2010!
This is a 2-pager, for the family book:

2-pager for Randy's book, except I uploaded them in the wrong order, so this is the 2nd page
And this is the 1st page.

Again, I used the Carving up Fun kit by Trisiescraps from
I sent my first 10 pages away for printing to Persnickety prints. They should probably be here today. I am excited to see them in person.
Thanks for looking!

more digi layouts

This is a 2 pager, I have no idea how to post them right next to each other! this is for Brandon's book. Using Carving up fun kit by Trixiescraps (again! Do you think I got my money's worth on that kit? I sure do!) which I got from if you love digi scrapping you should really check out the store at there are amazing designers and fabulous products!

It was asked if I make different layouts of the same event, and the answer is yes, I do. This is something I have done for the past several years with my traditional scrapping, that way each book has the same event, but slightly different look. And I often use different pictures if I have enough, so these 2 pages are for Brandon and he's in them all, then when I do Randy's, he will be in them all and then when I do for the family, there will be a mix of both. I know, this is time consuming, and especially with digi, it would be easier just to print the same layout a couple of times, but, I just like making something special for each book. this is probably why I am so very far behind and will never be caught up! But, that's okay!
I hope to get several layoust done this week and get them posted. That's another definite upside to digi, it's already on my computer, so I don't have to worry about getting a picture, getting it uploaded, resizing, etc....
Thanks for looking!

some more, Halloween

I can't believe I already have this years Halloween pictures scrapped! That is insane! I really never thought I would embrace digital scrapbooking! But, I seriously cannot believe how easy it is! And quick!
So, I should probably be mentioning where I am getting the digi items I am using. These 2 pages were done using Carving up some fun kit by trixie scraps which I bought at
Now that I really look at this first one, I wish I would have cropped the gray cardstock differently, but, I'm not going to change it now!
The 2 layouts I posted the other day were done using the license to drive kit by Connie Prince which I also bought at There are some really great designers and kits for sale over there. Sometimes they run some awesome deals, which they did this past weekend and I picked a lot of these kits up really cheap!
And just to keep myself in reality, I did do a traditional paper layout today, but, as usual, I have not taken a picture yet, along with the last 5-6 I made awhile ago! I hope to do that in the next couple of days!
I plan to have my digital layouts printed at some point and then add them to my scrapbooks like a traditonal paper layout!
Oh, I am also finding that I am making more one pagers than my normal 2 page layouts, I think it's because I can resize the pictures so easily to fit them how I like on the page. This digital stuff is so interesting!
As always, thanks for looking and I appreciate your comments!

Randy's driver's license, digi (added another one)

I sure do love having all of these great elements at my finger tips! But, what do you think? Is it too much?
