Digi Page

I have been trying out digital scrapbooking again! I am still a major beginner in this form of scrapbooking but I love some of the kits avaliable out there and of course they take up much less room than real kits and you can use them again and again! I have recently joined a site called Gotta Pixel They have some fantastic designers there and some great offers, including free downloads when you join up!
This page was my latest practice page made with the fantastic Spring Breeze kit designed by Isabel Mendez - Crisdam Designs
The gold lettering is an Alpha download called Embossed Gold created by Lauren Bavin and the little gems are from a kit called A jewel a day warm colours created by Elizabeth Weaver. Both available from Digital scrapbook Place

It is quite a simple layout. I love seeing pages created by other people that have loads of embellishments on but when I try it my pages just look crowded!

The photo was taken in 2007 when Zoe was presented with a young persons Jack Petchey Achievement medal through her Girl Guide Unit. She was nominated for the medal for being a reliable and helpful member who helped keep the unit running smoothly when her Guide Leader was very ill in Hospital.

I love the colours of this kit, it was really easy to work with. There are loads more papers and embellishments to use.

I am quite pleased with this page except for the writing. I am having problems using the text tool in my Paint shop programme. When I try to add text to a page it always seems double spaced so it looks odd and doesn't fit in the space required. So this time I used the pencil tool and tried to write using the mouse. A bit childish looking but at least it fits! If anyone has any tips I would be very grateful.

Well Done Shazza!

Wow! I have been out of action for a while and been a very bad blogger. Sorry!
Good news for my friend Shazza though! While I have been neglecting my scrapping and my blog, Shazza is going from strength to strength! She is now on two scrapbooking design teams!!
Well done you!

Happy Scrapping!

My rainbow

I am Blue- it's not as bad as it sounds

You Are A Blue Girl
Relationships and feelings are the most important things to you.
You are empathetic and accepting - and good at avoiding conflict.
If someone close to you is in pain, it makes you hurt as well.
You try to heal the ones you love with your kind and open heart.

You are The Empress

Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.

The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents, beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.

The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.
