Digital dabbling

About a week ago Christina left a comment here, so I moseyed on over to her blog to look at her pages. I was so inspired; not only does she have a lot of camping and hiking layouts (yay!), but they’re so fresh and full of life! Since I’ve been a bit bored with my simple layouts lately, I decided to try to make an 8×8 page inspired by Christina’s style.

Turning lemons into lemonade

I had a lot of fun making this one, it was refreshing to not just follow my same old structure. I think I am going to keep this up for all my hiking layouts from this year to make a little 8×8 album, I fell in love with that size when I made my desert scrapbook this spring.

Digital was definitely the way to go for this one as I could do it all while my sick self was planted firmly on the couch. Luckily, said sickness seems to be disappearing very quickly; the fever is gone and my throat is almost back to normal. This is very good news for our weekend plans, so now I am just crossing all crossable limbs in the hope that the weather will cooperate – I am very excited about this trip!

Ok, this is driving me crazy – I couldn’t decide whether to put “making lemons into lemonade” or “turning lemons into lemonade”. Hrmf. If you feel strongly either way (the rest of The Intertubes seems to be undecided), let me know so I can change it before printing. Aah, the joys of digital scrapbooking!

    This is a very nice layout! I actually thought it was all paper. The embellishments looked so real. Also, I think ‘turning’ is fine. =)
