Play ball!!

I know, I know.  You're probably tired of seeing my scrapbooking pages.  But I'm proud of them and want everyone to see them, so you're just gonna have to grin and bear it :) :) :)

Someday I will get all these compiled into a photo book, but not for awhile. 

Until then...

My first digi-scrap page

Many of you know that I was once really into scrapbooking.  I still love to do it, but it's a huge pain to get drag all my stuff out and then wait for inspiration to strike.  By the time that happened, it was time to put everything away. 

For a long time I have been longing to start digi-scrapping (digital scrapbooking).  My parents even bought me Photoshop Elements for my birthday (which was last June) to get started.  I've played around with it making the banners for my blog and such but finally, at long last I've made my first real page.  I really don't know what I'm doing, it's mainly trial and error.  I know there's lots of tutorials on the internet, but I've never gotten around to looking at them.

So, without further adieu...here is my first page.  I know there are things that it still needs, but I was only using stuff I had downloaded for free.

Jill, this one's for you!

I came across this site this afternoon when I was searching for photos for class.  (I do most of my lectures/notes/presentations/information sharing via powerpoint and I try to link in websites to visit (museums) and show my kids pictures of things we're studying (currently- Spanish missions in NM).) 

Anyhoo.... like you really wanted to know my lesson plans for next week...

I found this page and I knew my aunt (sorta, not really) Jill would like to know about it.  And anyone else who is interested in scenes from the southwest for that matter.  I'm not being exclusive. 

Here's the link.  Enjoy!
