National Scrapbooking Day 2009

Well that just figures!!! LOL When my computer had that NASTY and EXPENSIVE virus last month, I found out that I only had 4% left on my computer!! OOOOOPPS!!! I guess all of those digital scrapbook graphics have added up!!! SO I went out and bought a 750GB My Book external harddrive. Was a good girl, cleaned everything up and got organized (well....somewhat!! LOL) and now what is about to happen.............

NATIONAL SCRAPBOOKING DAY 2009!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just THINK of how much I can download this year in awesome graphics with all of this new room I have for storage.

Shhhh.....don't tell my mom.....she doesn't think that I need anymore graphics. That's like saying I don't need anymore fabric, or patterns, or craft gadets.....ok ok ok let's just say all craft related items as a general topic!!! :)

I really do like digital scrapbooking. I started out paper scrapbooking but that was just too expensive for me. I like digiscrap because when you buy a set of graphics, you can reuse them whereas a sticker, a piece paper, etc you can only use once!!!

If you want to peek at some of the scrapbook pages I've done, you can see them here....

Well, I'm off to bed and try to sleep off this icky cold I have!

Remembering the Past

I'm finally getting back on track now! While in the midst of us preparing my grandparents 60th anniversary party, my computer got infected with a nasty virus and had to go into the computer repair shop for about a week.....a WHOLE WEEK without my computer!!! It was pure torture!!!

But it's back and totally healthy, and I was able to get the anniversary party favors and the digital scrapbook done in time. While working on their scrapbook, I went through alot of their old photos and I started getting interested in our family history. So I started working on our family tree, and I'll admit that once you get started on genealogy.....it becomes quite addicting!!

Here are some of the photos I came across for their scrapbook:

For anyone interested in looking into their family history, here is a list of some websites to get you started:




And if you're like me and also like to digiscrap, this site has awesome graphics for family history pages:


Wishing everyone a Happy Easter!
