Digital Scrapbooking Can Start Again

I’m quite excited right now! I’ve just re-installed my favorite photo-editing software onto our desktop at home and am delighted to see that this new version works far better than the old version we had.  Back in May I had to restore the desktop back to factory settings and just hadn’t gotten around to getting my software back. I use Serif’s Photoplus SE (no affliation, just a happy user).  I’ve been using it for almost 7 years now and it works very similar to Adobe Photoshop.  Here’s to a night of digiscrapping!  I’ve started with this picture of my grandmother, Cora Mae Lawhorn Koonce (1932-2006).

The design is not mine; it’s a QuickPage by Lukasmummy from a blog train (several designers working collaboratively). It uses the Retail Therapy kit.

Happy Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day to al the father’s out there! I’ve just done this scrapbook page for Kalonji. 🙂

This design was created by Just For You DigiScraps and the name of the layout is “Dear Old Dad”

Major Milestone Reached & DigiScrapping To Share

Over the past week I’ve been quite relaxed.  At the end of May I reached a milestone in my degree program when I finished the curriculum portion.  Now, I need to focus heavily on research, but I am no longer in class 3 hours every day and also have to balance homework, work, family and squeeze in some time for hobbies.  Also, I’m quite excited about the research project I’ll be undertaking, and this month I’ll be writing up the research protocol and preparing for the next 10 months of work.

In other news, I was able to finally finish my scrapbook for my mother of Kaleya’s second year of life.  She has not seen it yet – I need to mail it to her this week, but I’m very delighted with the results.  Here is a slideshow of the pages:

This weekend I’m still doing some catch up at home and w/ some projects, and am beginning scrapbook #3 for my mom – this next one will cover the calendar year of 2007.

Flip Scrapbook

How cool is this! I was playing around with a site I found and created a flip book of my scrapbook for Kaleya’s first year. There is a problem with the next to last image, and i do have typos in some of my pages, but this is too neat!
