Well, that was a sad, sad game.  I really wanted the Broncos to win.  But I did have some fun with old friends on Facebook and who didn’t love the puppy and the Clydesdales.  Definitely the best of what tonight’s game had to offer.

Now it’s time to talk about something happier, one of my favorite hobbies.  I love digital scrapbooking.  It combines three of my favorite pastimes: technology, scrapbooking and photography.  It is the perfect hobby for me.

Today, we are going to be looking at three layouts I created this past week.  This first layout was created as part of my work for Tracy Martin Designs creative team.  It uses one of my favorite digiscrapping elements, paint.  I know if I were to ever return to paper scrapping that I would need to use lots of paint.  The good thing about digital paint is that it’s a lot less messy.

Michelle & Me Layout

The photo was taken when I finally got to meet my friend Michelle. We’ve been friends for years thanks to the Internet and I finally got a chance to meet her and her family when they came to Florida in 2012. It was a great meet up.

This next layout is actually a photoless layout. Normally when I do a page with no photos it’s an art journal piece. This time, I am using ephemera as a means of sharing my desire to go to New York City one day. I love using ephemera, but it’s often hard because of the types of photos I take.  So this time, no photos.

One Day I Will Go Layout

Everything on the layout is from Crafty Button Designs. You can find a full list of credits here.  I especially loved the torn look of one of the papers in the Flea Market Finds paper pack.  To enhance the look, I erased portions of the top paper layer so that you could see the paper layer underneath.

My final layout today was created with the Natural kit from Tracy Martin Designs.  I loved the blues and greens of the kit, so I had hoped to go outside and get some new photos to use with the kit.  Alas, it was a little cold outside for my blood so I found an older photo to use with the kit.  This layout definitely has a very paper scrapping feel to it.  At least I think so.  Most of my layouts used to be in this style, but I have branched out in recent years.  I will admit it felt good doing a more traditional style layout.
