Digital Scrapbooking

HA!!! I did it!!! This is my first digital page. There are a couple of goofs on the page but I did it, uploaded it to Costco and printed it. I guess you can teach an old dog new tricks. But there is so much more to learn. I hope my brain doesn't fill up too fast. I have a lot of pictures to scrapbook. The top two pictures are of Polly. Actually they are the same picture only the top photo was cropped a little. Mabel is in the bottom picture. She is a little camera shy so I didn't get a real good picture of her. Maybe next time.

My New Hobby

So in case you did not know this about me...I am a crapoholic. I even have a new blog that I am working on so check it out sometime. Anyway I have a passion for buying supplies for whatever hobby I have. Not necessarily actually engaging in the hobby itself but buying lots of supplies for it. Hence, adding to my addiction for a lot of stuff which is what crapoholism is really all about. (Catchy name don't you think?)So my new hobby is digital scrapbooking. My sister bought me a kickass computer program for my birthday. Memory Manager & Storybook Creator 2 from Creative Memories. So since I had the programs and it required more memory than I had on the old POS PC I had before, I bought a laptop. This is something I have wanted to do for the last few years so I am really glad I have it now.

Anyway, back to my new scrapbooking. I absolutely love it!!! My friend Trudy invited me to come over a couple of Fridays ago when Toni was going over to scrap. So I made one page that night of my girls and my head was swimming with information that was immediately sucked into a black hole when the night was over. Last Friday we went to the Creative Memories consultant's house. Sally is awesome and has been doing this for a few years so is very knowledgeable and helpful. We had an awesome evening and I did three whole pages. I did another page yesterday. But I need more embellishments, papers, etc. Luckily for my crapoholic tendencies, all this stuff goes on my computer. Not into boxes in my stamp room. That is a good thing because I have more stuff than I can possibly use in this lifetime and I have to lighten the load very soon so I can move on with my life.
