A New Spin on an Old Favorite

Okay...for all you tech-savvy peeps out there, this is nothing new, but I am sooo not that gal! I bucked computers and the internet for a long time, and still don't understand how to do much more than answer my cellphone when it rings. Necessity is the mother of all inventions (or abilities, as it were) though. I am now doing *digital scrapbooking!*

With the house on the market, there is just no way I can do the traditional paper scrapbooking that I've done for years. It takes forever just to bring all my supplies downstairs, get set-up, and then have to put it all back again. But, as weeks, and then months after returning from China ticked away, I started getting more and more worried about forgetting important dates, stories, and things I wished to express. Well, my friend, Ang (who is uber-tech-savvy) was coming for a visit back in February. She also just happens to be a Creative Memories consultant! I made her hook me up! She downloaded the program I needed for me, and then taught me how to download freebies, oh, how I love freebies, and also how to download cool fonts.

Now, I am able to work on pages during the girl's ever shortening naps and in the evenings, just by pulling out my laptop!

I'll post a couple of pages that I've made so far, and believe me, if I can do this, anyone can!

Did you buy the program, too?
I was looking at the digi stuff on CM a few days ago. Just wondering what I should buy!
Thanks...
