It's coming right along... the best part about doing this is just sorting through the photos and remembering all the little & fun memories. :)

I'm a QT!

Just for fun, I applied for another creative team - and I got it! I am now creating layouts for SuzyQ Scraps, so it's likely you'll be seeing her designs quite a bit here. (Her creative team is called the QT's, thus the title.) I've had fun creating these layouts so far:

This was a fun month to scrapbook... I chose a really bright and fun kit that reflects all the fun summer things we did. I'm more than halfway!

Digital Scrapbook Retreat 2010

This is super-duper exciting!!

Digital Scrapbook Retreat
Newpark Hotel Park City, Utah
April 22-24, 2010

First off, the location is fabulous - we're talking luxury. But more importantly, the classes will be awesome! There is something for everyone. This year there are two different "tracks" of classes being offered, a beginners track and an intermediate/advanced track. I am teaching a class on layout design for both of these groups. Another cool thing that is being offered are bonus classes on Photoshop CS (the full version of Photoshop) and Illustrator (another Adobe design program). These are both programs I've been interested in learning. You can see the entire class list here and purchase packages here.

And... if you would like to WIN a retreat class package, just go to the DSM forum here to find out how! Good luck!

Project 30 Album

Have you heard of Project 365? Where you take a photo every day for the whole year? Well, I wasn't feeling that ambitious, but I did join April and the girls who hang out at DSM in what we called "Project 30" - taking a photo a day for the month of September. I decided to make an album with all of my pictures, here are just a few of the pages:

{papers and elements from "Click." by Kelley Mickus; "Teletype" and "Pea Hannah Vanilla" fonts}

To keep it cohesive, I kept the design, fonts, etc. the same throughout and chose one kit to work with. I used "Click." by Kelley Mickus because I love the colors and the theme of the kit was perfect for this. I created these layouts at 5x5 inches and just ordered the photobook today. Can't wait to find it in my mailbox! Hooray for capturing the everyday moments.

Christmas is Coming!

I was reminded of this when I saw Kelley's new "grabbag" kit, coming Thursday to The Digi Chick:

This is such a fun kit - isn't that button tree the cutest thing you've ever seen? I dug up some old pictures from 2007 for this:

I have been doing lots of scrapping lately but haven't posted much because it's TOP SECRET. Haha, ok not really, but I am working on something fun for Digital Scrapbook Memories, I'll post more later. Have a great day!
