I've finally re-decorated since my last Christmas overhaul. This layout was a lot of fun to make. I got the papers and brad and text and ribbons and things from http://www.shabbyprincess.com . I downloaded the bird raster from http://digifree.craftcrave.com and used the papers from Shabby Princess to snaz him up. The layout itself is actually a lot bigger than my lap-top screen so we're not getting the full effect here. The full effect (on Chris's 24" monitor:)
I can't be bothered to re-size everything at the moment though, so it is what is it is for now. It's so much better than the awfulness we had to look at before and for that I am truly grateful. Ha!
After today I think I might be interested in doing some digital scrap-booking. I had a lot of fun! There's enough free stuff online to get me started....could be worth looking into. I LOVE photoshop (my only real hobby) and have dived into researching photo editing more than anything else lately but it's nice to do some more creative things with textures and distressing that I haven't done in a long time as well. I'm not an expert by any stretch of the imagination, but I always have a good time in that program. :) Now that Chris is doing a lot of photography, I've been thinking about investing in Adobe Lightroom as well. There's a lot of things I've been wanting to try in there that you *can* do in Photoshop but are given pre-sets in Lightroom so it's that much easier. It could be exciting!
