Converted

Another great thing comes from Ohio. DSP!! I guess because of my employment designing digi-wedding albums back in the day, you could say I've been digi-scrapping before I knew I even liked scrapbooking. (Actually, I really hated it. It bothered me that people spent so much money and time embellishing and glorifying mediocre and sometimes even awful photos of mostly unimportant things. Yay, my kid can drink out of a sippy cup. Now I'm going to spend five hours making sure she knows, twenty years from now, how proud I was of her. Yes, string me up, all ye avid paper scrappers.) But now that I can *click, click, click* and get multiple copies of the same pages for pennies and in minutes- sign me up. I don't care that it is flat. I like my books to close when I close them. Now that I think of it, maybe paper scrapping vs. digi-scrapping is like the difference between sculpture and paint. Both art. One's just... bulkier. (Yes, I'm biased.)

Anyway. I'm having a lot more fun designing the babies' books with these pre-fabbed scrap kits than I did building everything from scratch with Mia's. The results are in, and I highly advocate double-clicking. ;-)

I've thought about digiscrapping but I really like feeling the photographs and papers in my hands. And I spend so much time on the computer anyway.
I sort of get to do something like that with my blog design business.
Maybe someday I'll give it a try, but for now I'm still doing hard copy scrapping. :)

Cool! Show me how! I might actually DO this kind of scrapping.

Hey Summer - how you going today? I'm on the electric blanket making four pictures with Erica's new Traveling On groupies. :)

They are to be my next week's photohunt entry, between you and me. :)

Wow, your blog is beautiful Sum. Are you doing it for pay? It's so cool! I will pay you. You have to write it, too, though.

Seriously. I need lessons in this.

With these twins, the last thing I'm able to do is drag out all my scrapbooking supplies and do some creative work for what, like 10 minutes? Before it's dragged all over the place by two toddlers?

Yeah. I've been wanting to learn how to do digital for a while now.

Do you think I'm smart enough to handle it?? :-S

I can handle the truth!

I love it! Is it a lot of money to buy the programs?

These are precious pictures. Your babies hardly look real. I am working on a blog book, which is kind of like digital scrapbooking and I love it!

And now I know how you really feel.......
That's it. I'm scrapping something really mediocre tomorrow and thinking of you while I do it. ;)
