halloween 2006

Yes, I am still doing baby book for baby boy... a few years late. Here is the halloween from 2006, his first. I love when I can do one layout and it can be for 2 things. YAY! I am just a few years behind on some hollidays. I am all caught up on Christmas, so that has to count for something. Super ready for this baby book to be over, I get teary eyed when I see how little he used to be. Now he is growing up on me. Potty training and using big sentences. I think this is why people keep having kids. They remember the little guys. But, with a hubby that is going to be gone for a looooong time, another baby just isn't a good idea. I will have to live through photos.

yep, it happened

I called it! I bought my photoshop elements 6 at the end of August. I was looking for the link for a friend who wants to start digi. They now have photoshop elements 7!!! Oh well. If anyone is looking for PSE 6, has it. It is $20 off with another $20 rebate. So, you only pay $60!!! Good deal!

On the short of it. I will have some new stuff up here soon.

for the ladies of 5/3

I got all of the photos from past coffees from Caren. I put them all on scrapbook pages, I really wanted everyone to be able to see them. They are big files and email just doesn't like to send or recieve such big files! So, here they are. Caren, I have a CD for you too.

ds baby book

So, after a lot of scrapping has happened, I have finally found the color I want to use for the text! It is hard to do, I didn't like the black, but I couldn't find one that really matched and showed up at the same time. Now I have, chocolate. I think I need some now. That would go perfectly with my scrapping I am doing! Here is a sample of what I have been working on.

hard drive

So, that is it. The hard drive died! But, I am so lucky to have a brother that is super good at computers. I can play on one, scrapbook, shop, but I can't ever figure out what is wrong with it! Why was it running slow? I just don't know. But, he came over and turned it off and back on. A message, "hard drive failure is imminent." hello! I should have read, but I just kept pushing F2. So, today we went to best buy and got a new hard drive. My wonderful brother put it in and set up the basic things on the computer for me. Now I am waiting to download photoshop elements again!! Thank goodness for external hard drives, I didn't loose anything.

On another note my friend has a new font in studio fontologie. It is called Doodle Dance, and it is on sale! I personally love this font, it is super cute and fun. I can't wait to get my computer up to where it was pre-hard drive failure and use it!! I think I will use it to make a new header for the blog. Back to the reinstalling of programs!

I know, you know I don't drink coffee. In fact I don't even like the smell of it. But, being an Army Wife (the show is great, just not completely real) we do fun things. Once a month the officer's spouses (usually wives, but we cannot forget that there are women in the army) get together for a "coffee." It is called that because way back when the ladies would gather and drink coffee. Now we get together and do a number of things. The main thing is to discuss what is going on in the unit. I went to my first one with our new unit. It was a ton of fun. Well, the leader always takes a picture of the group each month. She sent it out, and this is what I did with it. Enjoy!

I used IndianSummer and I love, love, love it! I love all of the rich colors in it. I didn't use a whole lot of the colors, but it is so fun.

So much!

So, as you know I went to visit my friend last week. Before I had been scrapbooking just point and click. Not really with any format. With my paper scraping that I had done, I had a book with "recipes" in it. You know, it told you how many solid or patterned papers to use, what sizes to cut the paper to. I loved it. But thanks to islandmom, I have found layered templates. You can find them online for a small price. Some even do mini albums, for like a vacation. Or like this one for summer 2008. I am now even more in love with digi scraping. I really like delete. With paper scrapbooking you can't delete the paper because you don't like how it looks. Ah, I love it! So, here are a couple of pages that I did since my last post. All using the wonderful templates!
This is a 2 page template, so it is 12x24 inches in photoshop elements.

This is a 12x12 inch template.
