Tried out Scrapbook Max!

I finally tried out Scrapbook Max. I wanted to see what all the buzz was about.

It is perfect for beginner scrappers. All you have to know is how to click to get a layout done! You have lots of great options (like ordering new templates off of the site!). It is easy to install, and easy to use. The whole package looks great. ;)

If you are an advanced scrapper, this is not really the best program for you. It is a little limiting.

If I had to recommend a program for someone that has never digital scrapbooked before, this one would be it!

Visit Scrapbook Max to find out more about it!

Shoot me now

Talon has Fifths disease. I have some crazy funk that is making me feel like death. I woke up with it the same morning that Talon woke up with the rash. I can pretty much rule out me having Fifths disease because I had it when I was younger.

This week is the World's biggest fish fry. We are missing the parade and everything today. That really sucks. I haven't been able to take any of the kids to the carnivals or anything! Poor Talon looks like a leper right, I don't think anyone would appreciate me taking him to a carnival with tons of

Anyhoo-- I am on the computer for a very limited time today. If you don't hear from me, I am not ignoring you...I am just on my death bed. Oh, but don't worry about me. I will be just fine (that is me the way).

Cottontail page kit- ONLY $1.00!!!

This kit is HUGE!!!!!! What could be more perfect for scrapping those Easter or spring pictures! I created this huge collection with the idea of making more than enough elements for an entire album. I am planning on printing these elements out and making a paper bag album for all the Easter pictures! This is the perfect set for making a mini album that is all the rage now! ;) (All papers are 12x12, so you could make a traditional size album, too! ;))You will get 13 backgrounds, and 8 of those you will get in both distressed, and non distressed. So, actually you will get 21 backgrounds, with 8 being duplicates. lol. You will get 3 sets of coordinating ribbons, punch labels, paper bag envelope; coordinating metal brads, eyelets, staples and paperclips; cardboard washers, matching stickers, twill tape and twill tape both plain and inked, eggs, tags, and lots of "paper peicings" such as a carrot,rabbit, rabbit head, and a basket. Also, you will get a cute orange button, and brad that I used for the rabbit's nose and eyes.;) You will get an entire alphabet and numbers that are stamped onto inked twill tape.
