Digital Scrapbooking:

It's addicting. I can't leave it alone. It all started with trying to redo my blog layout... and then it just took off from there. Thank goodness I have a crock pot that I started dinner in yesterday morning or we all might have gone hungry yesterday. I've already done our first year as a family.

No more buying expensive printed papers and embellishments. I can download them for free. No more cutting and punching out thousands of tiny paper pieces. No more pages of stickers roaming the house waiting for Nadia to put them on the walls, the tv, the bathtub. No more searching for glue sticks. I have gone digital and I am obsessed. It's so EASY! And then it's just a matter of printing the pages and shoving them into the many scrapbooks collecting dust waiting for me to DO something with them already.

I can use the same stuff to do blog layouts. I can use the same stuff to make greeting cards. And the best part??? It's all FREE. The program I'm using, the paper kits I'm using. All downloaded free off the internet. Why didn't I do this SOONER?

Oh, I KNOW. It's such a time suck, but I'm totally all about the digital scrapbooking stuff. If you can get ahold of a photo-editing software that can adjust hues, you can actually change the colors of ribbons and things. It's nuts.

Oh I KNOW!!! I'm using photoscape (free off the internet) and also free off the net! I can change the colors of everything and paste in layers and waste an entire day in front of the computer!!

HA! I just noticed we both intro'd our post the same way. "Oh i KNOW!" Believe it or not, I didn't even mean to do that. LOL
