Something I said I'd never do.....

I have to confess I am a paper junky. I love to make things from paper, cut, glue, embellish--I'm all about the real projects. I have never been a fan of digital scrapbooking. I do however enjoy manipulating photos.

I have been making Halloween cards to send to family and friends. I wanted to include a couple of pictures of the kids. Snapfish has a one penny print sale going on right now so I thought maybe I would splurge and send everyone two pictures this year. My dilema was I took several pictures of the kids that I really like. I had to chose between A. Narrowing my selections down to 2 pictures, B. Sending different pictures to different family members, or C. Use photoshop elements to create my own little scrapbook page to send.

I took the plunge and went with option C. I am not sold on digital scrapbooking, however I can now see some advantages (calendars, Christmas gift books) that I will be taking advantage of in the future. I am still loyal to my paper. In fact I'm going to go spend a little time with my neglected paper and create another goodie.

For now here are my creations to share. The digital elements were from Shabbyprincess.com
