Here is my first black and white page of Leah. I found the quote at Denny’s Poems and Quotes. This website has titles, quotes, poems, etc. for anything and everything.

I want to start including more journaling in my pages. I love reading the entries other digital scrappers add to their pages. It’s a great way to remember the story behind the pictures taken. My only problem is that I often don’t remember a lot of the story, but if I’m able to get a page done shortly after the pictures are taken, it may be possible.
Here is a page I made from our trip to Leah’s elementary school yesterday.

It is a treat to see a smile on J’s face. It happens more and more now, but it still has to be earned.
I made this page with parts of the “No Pirates Allowed” blog train. I LOVE the colour palette and all the designers contributed beautiful papers and elements.

It has been about 6 months since I discovered digital scrapbooking and I am just as obsessed now as I was when I first started. I enjoy being able to share my LOs with anyone who is interested in visiting my blog. I’m also happy to share links to the designers of all the wonderful kits I use in my work.
In addition to sharing my favourite pages with you, I plan to start adding a few new features. One feature will be tutorials for GIMP (the free program I use for digital scrapbooking). It can be challenging to find good tutorials out there for GIMP and often when I do find what I need, it’s for an older version of the program. Through trial and error, I’ve figured out how to do a lot of things with the program and I am happy to share what I’ve learned.
I will also be sharing some of my templates. I have really enjoyed learning how to make templates and I figure why not share them. It’s always great when you find just the right template for a page you have in mind. It makes it much easier to put it all together. Hopefully my templates will inspire someone else!
I also have another special project that I am very excited about, but I’ll save that for a later date.
In the meantime, here is a recent LO I made of my daughter when she was a baby. One of the great advantages of having just discovered digital scrapbooking is that I have thousands of photos already waiting to be used. If only I had more time…

Here is my LO for week 15. Good week, cute pics!
Papers and elements from the Grandma’s Quilt themed Blog Train.
Back in January, the theme for the Blog Train was Grandma’s Quilt. I decided to go back to it to make my LO for weeks 14 and 15. Here is week 14.

My daughter loves princesses. So I was pretty excited when I saw that Scrappity Doo Dah was having a Fairy Tale themed blog swoop. I downloaded the Cinderella and the Froggy Princess themes, but there were other fairy tales included as well. I used the Princess and the Frog mini kits to make my Week 13 LO.
The theme for the Blog Train this month was Pirates Not Allowed. It refers to the influx in “designers” stealing kits or parts of kits made by others and claiming as their own. This is a great way to get the message out there. The colour palette was great too. Here are three pages I made with some of the parts of this huge collaboration.
