Learning a new trick...

Well - I have been wanting to learn how to design digital kits for a little while - but hadn't dabbled much in it. Then, thanks to God and Vi - I won Photo Shop Elements 7.0 - a perfect excuse to learn this program and see what I could design on my own! I have played with Digi Scrapping and love it! I have a lot of kits I have downloaded off the net and love them... all for personal use and most were free! But I am an artist and while designing the pages for clients is still my passion - to be able to design the materials TOO is just too fun!

I was contacted by a company looking for scrapbook designers and so that, along with the new software to learn, really put a fire in me this week to set aside some learning time to see what I could come up with! Not sure what will come of the possible new venture - but I am loving this new aspect of scrapping - even if I just do it for myself and a few clients!

Here is a layout that I came up with this weekend... it is pretty basic I know... not a lot of stuff going on - but everything on there, I made! I designed the papers, made the brads, drew the clipart, etc! So - for my first ever design project, what do ya think?

I personally love it! I see a few things now that I uploaded it to tweak - but overall - for my first attempt - I am happy with it! I can't wait to play more! But alas, today is Easter - and we are off to spend the day with family... just wanted to update you with a little something to let ya know I am still alive and well!

Happy Easter! He is Risen!
