Gone Digital!!!!


Oh my word... I AM SO EXCITED!! I have always wanted to dabble a tiny bit into digital scrapbooking. No worries, I would never give up my beloved paper scrapbooking... I love texture, papers and all those goodies way to much to ever switch over... BUT, like I said I have always wanted to try digital. I have actually tried a couple times and failed miserably. I just couldn't find a tutorial that worked right for me. I needed a really dumbed-down version so I could understand exactly what I was doing LOL. SO, today I don't know what came over me. I'm not feeling very well and I was tired of laying on the couch. I didn't feel like going upstairs to scrapbook so on a whim I decided to try this again. I found this tutorial on the Shabby Princess site. I also found most of the digital goodies (free) from Shabby Princess as well. I fell in love with the vintage Halloween theme kit so that made me want to finish a page more than ever. I know it's a pretty simple page but I feel overwhelmingly excited to have completed my first digital page!!!

Today we'll be doing some fun things like Larissa's first pumpkin carving, painting pumpkins and general Halloween craftiness. I'll be sure to get lots of photos for future layouts although they will most likely be of the paper variety. I will try to do a few more digital pages so I don't forget what I learned already.

I hope you all have a spooktacular Halloween and a great CREEP-end - as I am being told by my sister that this weekend has been switched to a creepend ;)

p.s. did you notice that vintage Halloween print on the digital page is very similar to my blog background... I really wish I could find some real sb paper that is similar. If you have to know of any I would love if you left me a link to it in the comment post :)
