After the kidlets got in bed tonight, I went digi scrappin' crazy. I was on a role bigtime, but realizing the time, need to get to bed. I've been doing some speed digi scrappin. This was my preferred method when I was a paper scrapper, so I decided to try to carry it over to digital. Basically I just draw a bunch of my pics into PSE. Then I start picking templates and just start squeezing my photos in there, based on chronological order and theme. If I have 5 pics of a certain thing, then I just go in my templates file and find a template with 5 photo slots. I can adjust the templates as need be, though. This will be even faster once I get my templates organized by photo number. Thinking about doing 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and multiple.
Here's a layout that I quickly put together tonight. The journaling at the bottom says: Christian is keeping his eye on the prize - The Ozark Wildcat - May 23, 2008.
I used the template by Shutterbug Jenny (free!). Paper is from Vicki at A Work in Progress (free!). Photo is from ME of my biggest boy!!!! Did a little changing of the paper hues to match the photo better. Isn't digital great? I couldn't have done that with paper!!
