Masculine Scrapbook Layout

Hi!  I am thoroughly enjoying my 3-day weekend - how about you?!  I have so much to do to get ready for my trip to San Antonio next week for the Stampin' Up! Leadership Conference - soooo excited!  But, I did a quick digi-layout this morning that I wanted to share with you.  My Digital Studio is REALLY helping me get caught up on my scrapping.  :)

This layout is of my hubby and sweet boys on Father's Day.  We bought him a really cool portable grill that we can take to the pool and tailgating.  It was designed by Paul Jr. from that motorcycle show he loves - so he was pretty excited about it!  :)

Most of this layout uses the Number One download.  It has a great masculine feel to it! The little journaling block is from there as well.  If you don't have the digi-bug yet, this layout would be easy to duplicate using traditional scrapbooking.  I never know ahead of time which photos to print bigger - so I love being able to make my photos whatever size I want in My Digital Studio!  So easy!!

For those of you that are signed up for Stamps 2 Go, I'll be mailing those out the end of this week!  I'll be posting info about February's Stamps 2 Go kit soon!

Thanks for visiting!

More Free Digi Downloads!

Hi!  I just returned from a fun girls' weekend where I got lots of scrapbooking done and cards made!  Of course, there was also tons of laughing, sharing, eating and talking!  :) I did mostly digital scrapbooking this time using My Digital Studio.  It was so much easier not to pack so much stuff!  All I really needed was my laptop!  Here is one of the layouts I did:

This photo is from our first family ski trip!  I'm glad I finally got this picture scrapbooked - it's the only photo I have of the four of us together!  (Don't you hate that?!)  I was inspired to scrap this photo when I saw the patterned paper in the FREE "Day in the Life" digital download.  You have until tomorrow, January 10th to click the above link and download it for FREE.  You don't want to miss this fun download!

I've found that I love using sketches for my digital scrapbook layouts as well as my traditional scrapbooking!  I used sketch #189 from the Creative Scrappers blog for this layout.  Make sure and check out all of their wonderful sketches and layouts - lots of inspiration over there!

Also, don't forget that tomorrow is the last day to sign up for January's Stamps 2 Go! Kits will be mailed January 20th.  You'll also receive this fun stamp set:

Thanks for stopping by!!  Hope you have a super fun and creative week!
