My First Digital Scrapbook Page!

Last week I won a free copy of MyMemories Suite 2.0 digital scrapbooking software from Sara at Embracing Destiny.  Yea, me!  Thank you Sara!

I have a corner of my closet devoted to all my paper scrapbooking supplies that I don't use anymore -- mostly because I haven't scrapbooked in over two years, and it is a daunting task to even get organized to restart!

So, I figured I would give digital scrapbooking a try and for about $20 to purchase some digital pages and embellishments and fun, pretty stuff, I've completed 3 pages so far this weekend. 

Here is my first page:

The first three pages have been quite a learning experience - trying to figure out where the software puts your downloadable purchases, how to manipulate, shadow, and create word art, layer pictures and embellishments.  It was fun, but a very different set of mental skills right now because I have to be so intentional about how I'm doing all this as well as paying attention to the creative aspect.  I know it will get easier and I won't have to be so cerebral about the process of digital scrapbooking.

The best part so far?   No mess to clean up and organizers to haul back up to my closet!

PS- They have a dandelion themed set on sale for only a few dollars.  I'm thinking I might try to make a new blog header soon!
