So those of you who knew my before college probably know how much I love to scrapbook. I used to spend hours and hours scrapbooking with Heidi and Kim. We'd have sleepovers and stay up all night cropping pictures and arranging decorative paper. I am sad to admit that although I have lugged my huge totes of supplies to each and every storage-starved apartment that I've lived in, I haven't really pulled it out and scrapbooked for the last 4 years. I'm a little ashamed! That all changed a few months ago however when I discovered DIGITAL SCRAPBOOKING!! It is the best.I have a program that I bought from my mom (Creative Memories Storybook) You only have to buy things once and then you get to use it over and over again. The possibilities are endless because you can take a certain paper and change it into any color imaginable to make it look totally different. It saves me money because I don't have to buy supplies AND print out all those digital pictures. I think the best part is that I can just sit at my laptop for hours scrapbooking and there is no mess on the living room floor for days at a time. I can work on it for a few minutes here and there and don't have to worry about getting everything out and putting everything away. It is so wonderful. It is also really fast. There are predesigned pages that I can just put my pictures into and make little adjustments as needed, or else I can make pages from scratch. Here is a very small sampling of a few different pages. I am so glad that my mom taught me from a young age how important it is to document our lives and families through scrapbooking. I would have killed for just one scrapbook of my ansestors! If anyone is looking for an AWESOME digital scrapbooking program let me know!
