Rebel YELL!

I am in LOVE with this program....

I'm trying to make a years worth of scrapbook pages...as quickly as possible!  I'm so far behind!

I got MDS!

I've been thinking about digital scrapbooking for awhile...mostly because what keeps me from getting pages done is actually getting the photos printed...figuring out ahead of time how to crop them....  which ones to enlarge, which sizes...and then... what if I change my mind.

So, a Stampin Up! demonstrator who's blog I'd been reading for ages had a great promo for the My Digital Studio program...and that made me take the leap.

I have so much to learn.  Some things are easier than I expected...some things are harder (I imagine I just need to learn how to use the program).

Here's my first try:

I actually bought this scrapbooking kit (the paper kind) when I was pregnant, so that I could make an album for my little Pickle... I'm only 10 months behind!  Imagine my delight when this is one of the paper sets that comes already installed with the software.  SCORE!

I used a layout from my book "Cherish" from Close to My Heart.   I love to use those books to help me with layouts...I'm NOT a natural with scrapbook layouts.

A place for craftiness

I often think about posting my crafty things, like sewing, knitting, spinning, cards or scrapbook pages, like I used to on my other blog.  But since it is really all about the baby now.... it seems weird to stuff a picture of yarn or a card in between all the baby pictures.  So, now all my craftiness has it's own place.  The blog name is the same as my Etsy shop name...  some things on this blog will be listed in my shop, or available for custom order, while others will just be my own personal crafty business, but, now it all has it's place.
