Just in case I wasn't distracted enough...

I'm seriously thinking about digital scrapbooking. I have all this creative energy that needs an outlet. It seems this would be a good way to express myself. Besides, I have two shoebox sized plastic bins full of photos that need to be archived. My wedding photos don't even have a proper home. Well, neither does my wedding dress, so I guess I can't really fuss about that.

My dear, sweet husband has purchased these beautiful scrapbooks for me. They lay untouched in a large box in the garage. Motherhood has taken all my extra time. Even now, I struggle to have enough hours in the day, but it's a good thing. Anyhow, there are boxes full of papers and stickers and neat little embellishments. I figure if I do it on the computer, it might actually get done. I enjoy all the graphics and arranging involved with digital scrapbooking.

Right now I'm downloading a free version of Adobe Photoshop Element to see how it will work for me. I was fiddling with G I M P earlier. I guess I just couldn't get the swing of it :( So, I'm hoping this will be easier. If you don't hear from me for awhile, my computer has crashed. Ssshhh, don't tell Ron. ;)

I know what you mean! I'd love to make some actual scrapbooks, but it's so hard to find the time. And as soon as I have everything out, I need to clear the table for lunch or dinner. I'd like to try digital mess!

Stop on over at my blog, I've tagged you!

Did you get your gloves yet? How are they?
