My First DigiScrapping Page

Well, I've done it--I've just put one toe in the water (in the huge pool of digiscrapping). I've seen it out there for a while, and have wanted to try it, but didn't have the money to buy Photoshop etc. So, although I can't "create" digi kits or elements, or even my own cool lettering, I CAN use kits already made. This was a freebie Quickpage that I stuck my own picture into and added lettering (letters from another kit). It was really easy, but I hope to find the time to play around with other kits that offer all the elements seperately and I can "create" my own pages. This Quickpage is by Kelly Walker of Dreamers Magic Designs.

In case you are wondering...I also created my blog banner, using Andrea's Bah-Humbug collection (Brownie Scraps). It's so fun and exciting to see what these very talented young ladies come up with for kits and best of all that they share them with US!! :) Thank You ♥

OH, one more thing... I got my computer back!! YEA...but he didn't download my printer cd OR my burning software and he still has all our disks we gave him to do all that, so I still can't upload my cards etc. I know, I'm such a complainer...don't try to be, but I've waited almost 3 weeks to get it back and I finally do and I can't upload, print, or burn anything. OK God, I know you're teaching me patience here. I'm just very thankful that I have a computer at all and can stay in touch with all of YOU!! Have a happy week everyone!!

I'm thinking maybe I'll post all my digiscrap pages over at my family blog and keep this one mostly cards. I have privacy settings over there, but will be happy to "invite you" over there if you'd like to see them--just ask :)

What a fun page. Welcome to the digi-world. Careful, it's just as addictive as stamping! Best of luck with your computer!
hugs, Jami

Wow, for a first timer this is amazing. Love the layout. Welcome to the 'darkside' of scrapping!

I use, much like photoshop, which I too can't afford to buy. I like it, some of the functions are the same and best of all it is FREE! Google
