So, I got this great album template from scrapbookgraphics. It is for the whole year of 2008. A page for each month with 12 pictures per page. YAY! I have gone through and put all the photos in. Now I am going back and adding the paper and embelishments.... I need more time in my day so I can get it done! I have only done June and October. I know, random months, but I was inspired by some paper. I am still going through and deciding what I want for other months. Enjoy!

i <3 photoshop

Can I just say that I love photoshop? Seriously, I have been super jealous of people who have beautiful photos with color so rich.... I always wondered how their camera took such amazing photos. Since becoming addicted to digi scrapping I love taking photos. It is even more rewarding when I can get a picture from this:
Which is a great photo, we were super lucky to get to be in a film for This is my little guy and the advertiser for the Army.... but to take this photo and make it so rich in color is amazing!This is after playing with the brightness and contrast and color.... I love It!

the write way

Ok, so in my last post I talked about this site. It is fantastic. Everyday you can go read the latest entry, see what is new. They even have a spot for freebies! Check it out. Janet posted on Friday about writing. The journaling is super important in scrapbooking. For some people, like me, it is thier journal. Janet makes templates. It is amazing! She gave us a template here with the hopes that we would make a page with the things we love right now. I downloaded the template and got to work immidiatly! There was a problem. I love a lot of things! hy husband, my kids, alone time, girls nights out, good food, baking, sleeping to name a few.... But, here is what I came up with. Enjoy!
The journaling says:

what i am loving right now...

their laughter

her smile

his little voice

teaching them

holding them close

kissing their cheeks

wiping the tears away

watching them grow

dancing our hearts out

her drawings

his big heart

eating dinner on the living room floor

her story telling

his off the wall comments

looking into their faces and seeing heaven

kissing them goodnight

the squeels of delight when daddy comes home

the love between siblings

living each moment with the most amazing children

I can't even belive it

It is already the 7th of January and I have not taken ONE picture this year! I need to get the camera out. The month of December I had over 300 photos... Oh yeah, if you look on my side bar, there is blinky for this website. So worth visiting. I also feel kinda special because my very own digi scrapbook teacher is one of the two impressive women running it. I will be back with some scrap pages soon. I just bought this album from Janet Phillips for my 2008 year in review. I just can't wait to do it!

not sure i like it

So, I HAD to change my header.... It was for Christmas, and that was over a week ago. I knew I needed to change it, I just didn't have any inspiration, I still don't. I am not too thrilled with it. So, it will probably change more over the coming weeks, just know that I am really excited for Valentines day and doing a header for that!!!
