A New Hobby!



I've found a new hobby!! Digital scrapbooking!! I used to adore paper scrapbooking, but it's just not practical for me anymore. I'm so not organized with my supplies, so it takes twice as long to get everything out and see what I have than it does to actually make the pages! I found a few freebies on some digital scrapbooking sites, and I used photoshop CS3 to do the layouts.

Once again, I copied from my best friend. (Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!) She had the idea to do "then and now" layouts of pictures of her son from each month and also from a year prior to that month. So I've done the same. So far, I've only done March (above) and August (below. Obviously.) I hope to eventually do a whole year's worth and then have them printed into a photo book.





Oh. And the only reason I've had time to do this? Because of the tropical storm that kept school closed but let me keep my electricity to run my computer. :)

I need to get back into doing my scrapbooking. It's been too long.

Cute layouts! I wish I had Photoshop.

Cute! I really need to start printing out pictures and getting them into an album. I think it has been several years since I last did it. sigh.

Those look great! And of course, your boy is sooo photogenic!

Glad you like my "then and now" idea! ;)

How fun! I'm glad you got into digital, for some reason it just doesn't appeal to me at all.

I always wanted to do scrapbooking but then never found the time. Blogging and photography has been a welcome outlet.

I've never even heard of digital scrapbooking.

I'll have to check it out!! Thanks

Those are really cool!!

I know paper scrapbooking takes lots of time and stuff...but I like the textile nature, the feel of paper and pictures in my hands.

Okay, I'm weird. But it took me awhile to move from regular phototography to digital too...

Sigh. Just another reason to feel guilty for all those album pictures I have just sitting around. Is digital scrapbooking easy? Less time consuming than the real deal?

Susan said...

Awwww...those are just precious.
