As you can see from my last post, its been awhile.... a LOOOOOOOOONNNNNGGGGGGG while since I have had a chance to scrapbook.
I looked back at my last post and smiled... It was pictures of an adoption album I created to send to Korea about our family. Who would have thought that now, almost 2 years later, I would be snuggling with our adorable 2 year old daughter and scrapbooking about her first Halloween last year. Time flies and needless to say, our adoption journey as well as chasing after a toddler has put scrapbooking on the back burner.
Fast forward to this month. While pinning layout inspiration on Pinterest, I noticed a lot of layouts I loved were actually digital. Maybe it was time for a change. Maybe I needed to shake things up and find my mojo again.
So I dove headfirst into creating my very first digi layout.
I have to admit I was intimidated at first using Photoshop Elements, but after watching a few tutorials and finding some free templates to help me along, I finally completed my very first digital layout. (I have a lot more learning to do, but it felt so good to complete something!)
And guess what? I LOVE IT! All the creativity and none of the mess! (LOL! Although I think I will have to touch some of my papers and embellishments from time to time just to feel the textures!)
So here it is.... "Trick or Treat"
I used a cool template from Shabby Princess and entered their October Template Challenge.
It was created mostly from free kits in her Shabby Shoppe!
