I have finally finished the photo book
160 pages of hell!
If I ever get another special offer of a photobook at a bargain price I have told Nigel to tie my hands behind my back and NOT let me have anything to do with it. EVER. Seriously.
It better look good when it arrives.
And we have a new member of our family - no... not a fur baby.
We collected our new car and she is called Ruby. And she is magnificient. She is pretty and efficient and cheap to run (no tax, lower insurance, runs on electricity as well as petrol and is super cool. We are very excited. We collected her yesterday andI drove her for the first time today and she drives like a dream.
We took her out to the woods today. Well, when you have a 4 x 4 you have to go walking in wellies - it's the law.
Yhe nose is healing slowly - part of the scab came off today - plenty more left!
and she is called Ruby because although she is black she is painted in ruby pearl and so when the sun shines on her she sparkles a deep ruby red. Very very pretty but a bit hard to capture.
I have a new page to share today made with a collection called Creating Memories by Lorie M
This is what I made with it
Now some advice
Julie you said you would love to start Digi scrapping but were unsure where to start. If I can do it anyone can.
I use Photoshop elements - the full photoshop programme is really expensive but elements will do everything you need it to do. I have no plans to upgrade. You can get a free trial here
And it is not too expensive to buy. I still use Elements 5 I am ashamed to say but I have bought elements 12. I see it is now on Elements 14. Crickey!
I taught myself but I did do several Jessica Sprague classes and they are brilliant for teaching you how to digi scrap. I highly recommend them. Do check out her website and I suggest taking a course or two. They are really really good when you are starting out.
There are lots of free kits out there you can download - though in my experience many are free for a reason. However, at Pickleberrypop you can download this free starter pack and it's very pretty.
Julie I promise if you start you won't look back. I would never give up my paper and glue but I would never give up my digital scrapping either and they are fab once printed out. Ask away if you have more questions
Today I am thankful for
- our wonderful new car
- a finished book
- sunshine and a walk in the woods
