This is just WEIRD to have ME as the subject of my page! I'm so used to my kids being the focus.

For some reason I can't get this to come across very well. Image is really bad. Can you help me with it? (I saved it as jpeg High Quality).

Title Page

I know this is simple, but isn't that what a title page is suppose to be?

Woo hoo! I'm on my way to getting my book done!!

My very first page!!!

Well, I can't believe it, but I think I've substantially finished my very first DIGITAL scrapbook page! It's simple, as you can see, but I assume I'll get more sophisticated with time. I might fill it in with more words or extra little musical notes, but for now...here it is! And I even figured out how to get it on this blog, that is a feat in itself!! Yippee!! Watch out girls! I've gotten the digital bug! Thank you Ritha for showing me how to use those drop shadows. Oh yeah baby!!
Does anyone know how to change that musical note to black? If not does anyone have a black musical note they have in their supplies?

Scrapbooking Challenge

I'm working on my project...in my head. Yes, that's right girls. Since my scrapbook IS all about me, I've got to work up the potential pages to DESCRIBE me. How many ways can I describe the glory of ME? (Sorry, I'm pouring it on now).

One page will be Goals for 2008. Do any of you have paper or a kit that looks like a scroll or notebook paper or something like that? I'm going to write down my goals and then put a box after each so I can check each one as I'm done. (I know, I'm such an accountant. Gotta have the check boxes to indicate completion of the task).

Another page idea is to have a picture of me (recently taken by family or friends) surrounded by words that describe me. Such as: mother, scuba diver, diet pepsi drinker, scrapper, runner, photographer, bean counter, etc etc (feel free to send me little descriptions as you see me, if you have any...only nice ones please!!). And yes, I hate to say it after your last post, Kris, but I'm going to add COFFEE DRINKER.

And yet another page idea will be about things I like to do vs things I do NOT like to do. I wonder if those things will change in time? It'll be fun to look back on.

Well, break is over!!

It's all about ME!

I'm thinking that my scrapbook challenge will involve an album that is exclusively ABOUT ME! Woo hoo! I'm going to have to dig up the 5 photographs I have of myself (4 of them taken by me and my handy dandy camera remote), that have been taken in the last 10 years. HOW many pages are we doing in our album?? I guess if there are 20 pages, with 5 photographs of me, I'll have to fill up the remaining 15 pages about how great I am! Yeah, that's it!

Actually, I've been wanting to do an album about this wonderful topic for ages now, so I have quite a few ideas. If 5 photos isn't enough I might need my FRIENDS help to get me a couple more! ;) Any takers?

In case you didn't figure this out by now, the reason I only have 5 photos is because I'M ALWAYS the one behind the camera. But, I suspect, you girls are just like me...so you know exactly what I mean!!

Tonight I'm going to learn how to do some serious digital scrapbooking. I can't wait!
