I did it! I did it!

My free Studio J membership expires in just 3 weeks. I've had it for eleven months and I had never used it. I had never even looked at HOW to use it.  That changed yesterday. I figured I better learn so I can share with my customers. So I set about teaching myself with the many Studio J videos and then played yesterday afternoon and some today...and I will have 5 layouts...yep 10 pages...shipped to my door very soon.  I really enjoyed it, though I think it's a bit more of a strain on the eyes, neck and back sitting at a computer for a few hours at a time.  The best part was that there was NO MESS TO CLEAN UP AFTERWARDS :)
Anyway, here's my first 5 very simple layouts (I haven't watched all the videos...just the basic one and then learned by trial and error. The biggest lesson I learned was proofread carefully...there are a few typos that will need to be fixed :(  )
 I purposely left this layout extremely simple so I could add some embellishments and journaling to make it more like a traditional scrapbook page.
 There's also a few things I plan to do to this layout of my son to "fussy" it up a bit.




Tomorrow I will let you know the many benefits of digital scrapbooking versus traditional scrapbooking. They both have their pros and cons and I will likely do some of both!
