My Creative Side

I love scrapbooking, but doing it paper style was a little overwhelming for me. I would sit there for about three hours staring, rearranging, cursing because I changed my mind about something and couldn't rework it. At the end of those three hours I would have one page, maybe two, that I liked and was proud of. I've since discovered an easier way.

I now do digital and I absolutely love it. Of course I'm still behind, but I'm catching up at a quicker pace. I've been working on a book for our trip to Disney World when Aren did Make-A-Wish. We had so much fun! I'm only about six pages away from being completely done and I should get those done in a few days time. These are some of my pages from the book...

We were able to spend an hour or so by ourselves with the Fab 5 - Minnie, Mickey, Donald, Pluto, and Goofy.


We stayed at Give Kids the World which had an ice cream palor open from 7 in the morning until 11 at night. Aren was in heaven! We went there one night with Kurt Warner and his wife Brenda. Aren had a great time.


Aren's wish was to meet SpiderMan, which he did. It made everything he went through worth it to see his face and get SpiderMan's address so he could write him any time he wanted.

You've inspired me, MB! I'm so not a scrapbooker but I might brave a digital one for Cat's first year since I didn't use a baby book.

Hilary, I did one for Tania and it was so easy because my friend sent me a template for a whole book so all I had to do was drag and drop the pictures I wanted and then rearrange a little. I swear it's the easiest thing in the world!
