Digi-Scrap attempt

Over at Carolyn's National Scrapbook Month party, she has challenged us to use some free digi-papers (from Jessica at Scrapbook Ideas). This is my first attempt at digi-scrapping, and using what little resources I had available to me, I put together a page for Mother's Day (yesterday). I would normally journal more, but I'm so new at this that I didn't really know what to do or how to do it. I'm going to be brave and post my first ever effort. Now Carolyn has another challenge for us. So, I revisited my first attempt, added some extra swirls at the botton, added some journaling, added a dark pink border, and here is my re-worked first attempt at digi scrapping! Do you think the few minor touches made it look any better?I really am looking for an easy-to-use digital scrapbook program that is compatible with Vista. The one I used to use doesn't work with Vista, so if anyone has suggestions, I'm open! Thanks!

Looks great!

My mom and I use Creative Memories software - and my mom has Vista.

It is super easy to use - but it doesnot have lots and lots of embelishments.

I think I may join the Scraping Sunday group...I need to get caught up!

Thanks for sharing.

I know nothing about scrap booking but it looks great

That looks wonderful! A beautiful picture, too!

How cute!!! I'm also looking for a great digital scrap booking program, but it has to be compatible with the Mac. That's what my hubby offered to get me for Mother's Day, but I wanted to search it out before I just went and bought one on a whim :)

I think you did a great job on your first digi page!! Welcome to the digi world! : ) I'm enjoying your blog... great disney photos!

As far as a digi scrapbooking program, Heritage Makers has a really easy online program that includes drag and drop... so you can be creative with your own pages or use their templates. Just an idea!! : )
There is a link to my Heritage Makers site on my blog if you want to take a peek at the free basic account. You can also upload pages you've created in other programs as long as you save them as jpgs!!!

Great page! I have collected loads of free digital kits from the web but never did a digital page. Your page turned out great for your first digital page, well done and thanks for sharing!

I like that you added more journaling, but it looks like the photo of the second layout is not loading right... the new swirls are all bunched up.

Yes, my son is fine... my husband just had to watch and make sure he wasn't acting drunk... I wasn't home.
