Annual Digital
Scrapbooking Day



Who knew there was an annual digital scrapbooking day. Best part - lots of freebies all around today. In celebration, I thought I'd post a few scrapbooking pages I've done recently using some of the wonderful freebies available. I even bought some kits the past few weeks just because some of the freebies led me into web stores where I just couldn't resist the goodies. This is addicting, ya'll.

Here's the link for the Digital Scrapbook Day main blog.

First one of Clay - always a lot of pictures on the Clay Aiken boards to play with. This picture is from his recent attendance at the Friars Club Roast of Matt Lauer. Understand it was a pretty raunchy event, as usual. Clay was sitting on the dais and took some of the roasting heat himself.

Note: Clicking on the pictures will render them HUGE.


Credit for the paper and hearts goes to ArtTheraphy.

My grandmother is the subject of this page. She is the only grandparent I can recall, as she lived with us a short time before she died at age 88. The Allen's were long lived individuals, as you will see from the following page which shows Nell's father, John D. Allen.



Credit for the beautiful kit goes to Joni Grey. She has some wonderful free kits.

I made the frame on this one. Got the instructions on Photoshop Elements Techniques, a website for Photoshop Elements users. There's a lot of good stuff there. The paper and elements were from a kit called Vintage Dolls, which I purchased from the Digital Arts Cafe - They have some beautiful stuff, the designer for this is Rachael Hudnall. Uh Oh, I just noticed when I went over to get the link. They're having a SALE!!!

Before Halloween we went to a Pumpkin Farm here in Wisconsin and had a great time. Here are a couple of pages from that day.


I actually made the template myself on this one, including the sun. The paper came from a freebie from the Fall Splendor blog train group. I can't find the exact one right now. There were SO many. Thanks to the designers.

My son and two grandkids searching for treasure in the gold mining sluice. The paper was from a blog collaboration called Sisterly Love and the designer was Crystal at digiscrapalicious.

Used some of the same kit in this one of my grandaughter.

Enough, already.....I need to go and get on the downloading bandwagon.

Again, here is the link for the Digital Scrapbook Day main blog. From here you can find all the sales and events going on today and probably all weekend.

As usual, digifree and ikeagoddess are great places to find the freebies.

Marhaven,

Thank you for your kind remarks in the Barack Obama blog. I, too, am very excited. As he said, he hears the voices of those who didn't vote for him, but wants to be their president, too.

Take care, and have a great weekend!
