Digital Scrapbooking? (now what has she gotten herself into!)

I'm not a big scrapbooker.

Yes, I do have a huge collection of scrapbook papers, stickers, pens, silly scissors.....I could go on and on, but I think my husband might read this.  (hi honey)

But the actual cut, glue, shift, re-glue, 'curse when I cut it wrong' part has always frustrated me.

It could have quite a lot to do with the fact that I like having options waaaaaay too much.  Once you cut and glue, you can't change.  That's a problem for me.

Now, if it was a can just eat it and start over...not a bad deal.  Paper....there's evidence.

I AM a huge shutterfly fan and have made many photobooks over the years.
Love, love, love shutterfly.

However, it's the end of the school year, and I've started to get the emails that I dread the most....

"I'm putting together a scrapbook for our great teachers!!!  Please make a 12x12 scrapbook page for our class book!"

As much as I think its a great idea, and I'm sure the teachers love them, and I appreciate that our room moms are always willing to construct them....I dread doing this.

Dread.  Seriously.

Here's the good part.  I do love techie type stuff.  (so maybe you guessed that already)
...and I love a free download...

I found this fabulous website when I was working on my header.

The Shabby Princess

All kinds of free digital scrapbook kits!  And tutorials on how to use them!

Oh my!

So I made this....

It's not really finished.  The photos need editing and I need a title on the little scrap of paper on the top.
But this was really fun!!!

When its done....I can upload the file to either shutterfly or costco just like a regular photo and they would print it for me!  Wow!!!  You can even include it in a photobook.  Easy-peasy!

The bad doesn't match the already purchased paper that will be going into the teachers' books.
Can't use it.
