A blast from the past

I’ve been trying to organise all my photos on my new computer which is taking forever. I so wish I had kept them organised better over the years, it would have saved me so much time now. I have just reached 2009 and I’ve come across a few photos of something I had completely forgotten – I once had a digital scrapbook layout published in a magazine!!! Can you believe that – I can hardly believe it myself. It was a layout of a couple of photos of our last trip to Walt Disney World and I called the layout ‘Winnie the Pooped’.

I haven’t done any digital scrapbooking for a while now and finding this has really made me want to get back into it again. I have a computer full of great digiscrapping resources and they are going to waste if I don’t get back in there and start using them. Some of my favourite designs come from Weeds & Wildflowers, but I’m slightly biased as I was on the CT there until the designer took a break to concentrate on family life. I also love the designs of Kate Hadfield and she often has a freebie on her site too. If you haven’t tried digital scrapbooking and you want to give it a go there are plenty of free resources out there that you can use to see if it’s for you or not, just pop it into google and Hey Presto! I use Photoshop Elements and you can try it out with a free trial to see what you think. Here is a Getting started with PSE guide I wrote a few years ago. It is for an earlier version of PSE but it should help you get the gist of it. Do you digiscrap? If you do or if you decide to give it a go I’d love to hear how you get on.
