scrappin' -- UPDATED

my sister has been trying to get me scrappin' for a LONG time. last night some of the girls from my ward were having a scrapbooking night so i decided to finally take the plunge and try it out. i'm more comfortable on the computer (i think) so i toted along my laptop and figured i'd try my hand at scrappin'. so here you go! my first ever scrapbook page. i would have done more, but my battery was starting to die and i didn't want to move away from the fun to plug it in. (next time i'll remember to bring an extension cord). i had a BLAST. what a fun way to get to know the girls in my ward better than chilling for 4 hours and creating some "life art" -- which is what nicole calls it.
so there you go ... its not the best. (actually it doesn't even have any of my favorite photos!) but it's only my first and i'll get better with more practice. nicole is coming up at the end of the month and she wants to scrap, i'm actually looking forward to it now!
...
oh and if you want to see some of my sister's work, she has a couple of her layouts on her blog, she also posted her process recently, which i found fascinating!! you can read her other posts on life art as well. LOVE ya sis!!
...
here is attempt number 2, any better?? i think it looks less cluttered, still not completely happy with it ... but i know if i keep messing with it i'll just make it worse!!

cute!!! I LOVE scrapbooking...I am addicted to it. I am glad you have decided to give it a try! If you like digital scrapbooking, I have a god link on my page for a site where you can do it for free, and it is very easy.

Sorry about your car! How horrible that you have to keep paying on it so many years later. It is crazy how many little side coverages you need. It would be nice if insurance just covered everything!

Very cute! I am soooo behind on my scrap booking.

so what did you use for your digital scrappin? I'm intrigued and tempted by the idea of digitally scrapping. I think it would make more sense (my pics are on the computer, I'm on the computer, I could share my pages, no mess to clean up). How expensive and user-friendly is it?

So cute! I love both digital and regular scrapbooking but I am not very good at either.

What digital program do you use? I want to start doing it all digital because I am awful at being creative. Please let me know. Thanks your cousin Stephanie (Amberson) Hyer
