Christmas Cards

 I made Christmas cards for both me and my mom this year. We got them printed at Costco and they are a 6x7.5 size. It is fun to make cards to send to family and friends.

Lake Powell

I created this page to document all of our Lake Powell trips this year. I used a template from a challenge on the DigiChick blog. We take so many Lake Powell pictures every year and there are not really any kits available so I just did a combination of kits for the alpha and elements but used some of my own scenery and water pictures for the background. I might do other pages for this year -- we went 6 times and I think that one page might not be enough!

Turning One

I finished working on a page to document Ellie's first birthday and I think that it turned out pretty well. I used a template that was created by Amy Martin (I got it from the November lily pad template challenge) and the "An Affair to Remember" kit from Shabby Shoppe. I did change the layout a little but by adding another picture because I like pages that have more pictures.

I used to teach 7th grade English and when we would do writing projects I would try to find a way for my students to publish their work because I felt that they did better work if they had an audience. I also feel that it is generally the same for all of us. That is why I have decided to begin this blog. It is for me really. I enjoy doing digital scrapbooking and I feel that it will mean a little bit more if people besides myself and Rob will actually see my work. Lately I have been entering a couple of scrapbooking contests or challenges and I have even won a few. As I did this I felt a great need to share my creations with others and so this is now how I am going to do that. Scrapbooking for me is how I can be a little creative and record my personal history at the same time. Thanks for taking a look at what I am doing.
