This is from my "My Favorite Things" Album I'm currently working on.  Some of my favorite pictures of my cousins and good times we have had.  I used the new Vintage Romance Digital Kit and I just love the colors and patterns, they coordinate with so many photos!

I am scheduling digital training for myself soon and when I've completed that I'll be doing digital training, one-on-one or in small groups so you can learn to get your photo albums done quickly AND beautifully!

I'm hoping to have a National Scrapbook Day Crop this year, probably in April or May.  I haven't had a big event in quite a while, and I think it would be fun and a good incentive for me (and my friends and customers) to have a chunk of time to get caught up on their scrapbooks. 

I'm lining up a location but will have to choose a date soon.  So keep an eye on this blog, my website, and/or your email, because I'm thinking I will have people vote for the date that suits them best.  I don't know if we will be set up for digital scrapbooking, as I'm not sure there are enough electrical outlets at the proposed location, but we will at least have some digital demonstrations. 

Anyway, here's a "challenge" for you.  What project do you think you want to work on for this year's event?  (Don't worry, if you change your mind, that's okay).  But I'd like to get you thinking about it, and everyone who leaves a comment with her/his answer on this post will be entered in a drawing for a little something special for a prize!

So, what'll it be?  A baby album?  Trip?  International convention?  Pet?  Heritage?  Leftover photos that don't seem to fit in any simple category?  Or a tribute to a special friend? 

I can't wait to hear your answers!

Some of you may know that I've had some medical issues lately.  I'm hanging in there, but one of the things I have done for my mental health maintenance is make a scrapbook of me and my sister, since she has helped me so much through all this (not to take away from my loyal husband, but a sister knows you inside out -- we share the same DNA).

So here are a few pages from that book that make me smile every time I see them.

Thank you, my baby sisso!

A new year, some new ideas...

Something about a new year always makes me feel like I should get organized...well, it hasn't happened yet, but there's always a first time, right?  One thing that's been helping me get my photos organized and into albums is Creative Memories software.  Memory Manager is helping me organized the thousands of slides that my dad put on DVD. 

But even more fun is using StoryBook Creator Plus software to make albums!  I have found it so quick and easy to use the pre-made templates to just drag and drop my images onto the pages.  I made a 20 page album in less than 3 hours!

So call me and we'll set up a time so I can show you how to make our software work for you.  And if you can't wait, go to my website and download the StoryBook Creator software (there's a free version available), and try it out.  There's no charge unless you decide to order the book!

Also, check out the links to the Project Center, especially if there's a party or gathering in your future.  There are lots of ideas for party favors and decorations you can make using StoryBook Creator software, and you can customize them to match any theme you have in mind.

So when you're done cleaning out that closet, take a look at the fun at
