A first for me

For the first time EVER I have put together a scrapbook page without leaving a scrap of mess anywhere!!
Don't believe me??? ...... Well, let me explain...

Sometime ago Carol directed me to a free Photo Shop online course ( I do believe I have mentioned this already). Well tonight via this site and through this link here I had a go at Digital scrap booking for the first time EVER. You can download a beginners page that is almost done for you, so okay I have cheated...but still learnt the basics and hey, I had to start somewhere :-)

Here is my page...don't laugh, I know the journalling is not quite in the lines and the photo is a bit of a hoot, going back 20 odd years to our wedding day.... but here it is anyway....
LOL, oh dear that date is meant to be 1989... another great thing about digital scrapping...if you muck up its simple to fix, no peeling off of stuck down journalling or embellishments required.
If you do happen to be into digital scrap booking, or thinking of giving it ago be sure to check out this site... Eidou. Louise has lots of free goodies you can down load to get started and a whole shop full of yummy stuff to spend your money on!

Thanks Carol and Lara. LOL Lara I will checkout the comp, but dont think I have the skill to join in yet!

Lyn S said...

Great layout Sonya, well done! LOL about putting the wrong date on! As soon as I looked at your hair I thought it had to be in the '80's!

Sharon & Nick said...

WOW - this is fanastic. I have wondering whether or not to give digital a go but I think you have just inspired me. This does not look a beginner to me. WELL DONE!

Sonya said...

This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think

At last I think I have pretty much finished this painting for my uncle. Do hope he likes it.
