I am currently doing an album for my son, actually I was doing it for his 30th birthday which was in January so I have missed my deadline somewhat, but I want to make sure all the photos are in and that means dragging out my scrap albums and trolling them for good pictures of him. I have also just moved house and been packed up since last August ready to move (it took a long time to get the other house sold) so I need now to get this album completed.
Here are some of the layouts I have done so far. I am a self-taught digital scrapper. I use Photoshop Elements (PSE) to make the layouts. I have purchased heaps of digital kits plus you can get loads for free on the internet. One of my favourite designers currently is Kimeric Kreations. She has a great blog that has freebies plus she sells on Digiscrap.
This would have to be one of my favourite photos of my kids. I used Bathhouse kit by Studio et designs and “put” the children in the bath. The photo was taken one day when my DD was having a bath and she put the shower cap on her brother. I cropped out the background using PSE.
I love all these sweet photos of my kids. Time has gone by too fast, they are now 30 and 35, I still remember when they were young, it seems like yesterday.
Off to get some more layouts done.
