Look, I scrapped!

Baby Madelynn was born on Christmas Day. Her parents are in our ward at church, and Grandma uses Creative Memories albums (8.5"x11"). I got to go over and take pictures (I thanked them for letting me practice on their child) and then I put together these layouts on the computer.




I got the pages printed at mpix and was thrilled with the way they turned out. Mpix doesn't do 8.5x11 prints, though, so I got 10x13 and trimmed them down. I found out afterwards that scrapbookpictures.com does have 8.5x11 prints. I'll have to use them next time.

I've been finding it difficult to work on projects with Kate around (like that drawing I did right before Christmas), but I think digital scrapping will be a good outlet for me right now. I don't have to get out any tools or supplies, and I can just leave it up on the computer and work on it a little at a time. Plus all my pictures are digital now, anyway. Sounds like a plan.

That's really cool! I think making the leap to digital sounds like a good plan for you.

Hi Helena, what software did you use to make these beautiful pages? They are awesome. Paula

They look very nice, the bottom one is especially sweet.

How long does it take you to do a digital layout? Not including baby Kate breaks ;)

Soon enough she'll be able to hold a crayon without putting it in her mouth to munch on, and you'll be scrapping and creating art together. I love my art time with Jaylene.
