DTM layout! ---Jenna

Lifebook: Birth Day

A lifebook is more than a scrapbook, it's the journey of a foster or adopted child from birth to forever family. This has been the hardest project to start but here it is: my son's birth page. His lifebook has begun!


Making Memories by Michelle Underwood
24/7 Card by Jen Wilson
Paper Tear by Janel Kretschman

I am super excited about having that published! She didn't even want those photos scrapped! lol! ;) Now they will be in a scrapbook magazine for all to see! lol! (((I used my Precious Love Quick page! Yay!)




AND....I just got an e-mail yesterday that I had another layout picked up for Scrapbook Trends August Magazine (About me section). I used my Owl love Quick page!!! Who'd thought that wild and crazy Quickpage....about owls, would get me published! lol

If these layouts make it into the book, this will be my 5th layout published in scrapbook trends. They give the best prize packages!!!!

SHUTTERFLY ROCKS!!!


I just got my Shutterfly book in. I can't believe it! I am loving it! I have been wanting to try this for a while...and I just never got around to it. I thought that it would be hard, or take too much of my time. I was SO WRONG! It is so easy. You just load your pictures, pick your project and go with it. It's really user friendly. I really want to do a calendar next. ;) It is just too fun to see your creations in an actual book. I feel like I have hit the big time and have my own book published! ( I am such a weirdo!!!)

Here's more pictures.


I had no idea that you could actually load your own graphics onto the front and back of the book! What a great idea! I used my paper from Precious Love page kit
and it looks so good printed. (not to toot my own horn, I am just talking about how vibrant and true to color it looks!) The layouts are so colorful. I can hardly stand it, I am so excited!

Feeling lucky??


POT OF GOLD

Mama's got a new ride....lol

Yes, finally....I have a new ride.
I got a Nissan Quest. I am so excited. I actually picked it up in Nashville last Friday, but I have been too busy to blog about it. (crazy, I know!)
Any hoo. Let me tell you about it. It is silver. It has the button you push to open the sliding door and the back hatch. It has a DVD player. It beeps when I am about to back into something..lol! It has more to offer...but those are my favs. I am so excited!
Here are some pictures. These are not "my" pictures, just pictures of what my van looks like. BUT, don't worry......I will be posting some pictures of me laying across the hood in a few days (totally kidding! lol!), but ya know I am going to have to do a layout about the new ride! lol!

March E-zine is out now!



One of the wonderful things about digital scrapbooking, is that there are no limits to what we can do on our pages. Some prefer the clean and simple look, while others go graphical, and yet others want their pages to look as much like a paper scraped page as they can… it doesn’t really matter what style you prefer, what matters the most is creating something that you love. Don’t get caught up in what your “style” is, or how many comments you get on your layouts. Remember the reason you are scrapbooking, to preserve the memories, to make them last. What matters most about your style is that when you look at your pages, it makes your heart happy… that is the REAL goal of scrapbooking.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
AND---There is a little about me in there! PLUS, there is a great tutorial for creating the bent look on frames..and it is for PSPers! YAY!

Go get it!-- MARCH E-ZINE
