My Newest Love...

So, tonight I was getting all ready to do some more work on my quilt when I happened to pop over to one of my favorite blogs, thompson family-life ...bad (or great, depending on how I look at it) idea...

Here, at this amazing blog, I decided to venture into the deep dark seedy underworld of digital scrapbooking...just looking through Danielle Thompson's work, I was so inspired I headed over to Jessica Sprague's shop (where Danielle sells some of her kits & embellishments) and loaded up my cart. Then I searched the web and found some free digital kits at Shabby Princess...(like the one I used with K's photo, from Carrie Stephens)

Seriously, I'm hooked. I've always scrapbooked the old fashioned way - but, to be honest, it takes me sooooo long...I never get very far very fast. Seriously, my kids are 6, 4 & 2 and I think I have 8 pages done altogether...:( BUT, now I can get pages done lickety-split!!! I'm so super excited about this I can hardly stand it (my husband is rather less so...but he patiently deals with my compulsivity).

Here are my first "pages" -

These took me only about an hour!!! Can you believe that?!?! Well, maybe you can...but I can't! Normally, 2 pages like this would take me the better part of an afternoon while I arranged & re-arranged and strolled around Archiver's looking for the perfect embellishments. But, alas, no more!

Geez, I love learning new things...
