In The Digital Age . . .

I have found a new hobby.  Actually found it quite a while ago but never had time to really get going on this either because there was just no time.  Now I'm picking it back up again very slowly.  I remember the days when I tried to make a scrapbook for the kids, paper scattered everywhere, 4 different kinds of scissors, stickers everywhere, different shaped hole punchers, scraps of paper piled as high as my knees and always messing up when trying to cut the photos.

Some of you know exactly what I'm talking about but the age of computers has provided us another way to save on all of the paper.  I'm talking about digital scrapbooking.  No mess, minimal trash and a lot more fun.  With the correct photo programs there are no limits to what you can do.  Create your own embellishments and papers or buy the kits online.

I have found several websites that offer digital scrapbook kits free, some of them charge for the kits but the kits I have purchased have never been over $5.00 each or a subscription to a website with unlimited downloads of their kits.  I will list some of my favorite websites below with links so you can check them out.

Anyone else out there enjoying this hobby as much as I am?  The kids are really getting into it as well.  Here are a few of mine that were done a while ago and I'm about to jump right back in but before I show you mine I will provide you with a few websites to check out their digital kits.

Here are some of the pages I've done.  The first one I am still working on, it's not done.





So for you experienced scrapbook fanatics out there do you have any other good sites to get kits from?  Any helpful hints for us inexperienced fanatics?  Want to share your scrapbook pages?  Email them to me and I'll post them in my next scrapbooking post.  Looking forward to sharing many creative memories with you all.
