I am a creative team member forDigi Cyber Scraps. Note: I received this kit for free in order that I would share it with
my blog readers. I received no other compensation.
To do these pages I used the Digi Cyber Scraps kit Picnic in the Park on sale right now for $3.19(Normally $3.99). That is a great price for all the things you get in this kit. I love that with the kits you get such a variety that you can make pages with the same kit that look so different.
I have to admit that I did some scraplifting.
One thing you must do when scraplifting is give credit where credit is due.
I scraplifted this design of the page elements from Albums To Remember. It was a free template I got from Barb a while back called 'AK 1 template' from her theme Everyday. You can still buy it here... and go compare her page to mine... http://www.mymemories.com/store/display_product_page?id=ARBP-AT-1304-30991
She blogs, has her own store and has tutorials and more at http://www.albumstoremember.com/ as well. After I post this I plan to check out her tutorials for My Memories.. the scrapbooking program I use.
I used her template as a guide and made the page below. I think it came out wonderfully.... one of my best pages ever. I should have put the date on there... I know it was summer 1989.
I love the Popsicle alphabet, the variety of colors of backgrounds and elements and the FUN picnic items like the basket (above) and the ants (below).
here is a FUN page with my dad, mom and I at the same place... looks like it may be the same hill as it was a favorite spot for picnics. Oh how I have been missing my dad these days even though he has been in heaven for 38 years, since I was 14.
I hope you enjoyed my new pages. I am enjoying digital scrapbooking more and more.
I tried to participate in a few challenges on the My Memories forum a couple months ago. I found it was impossible to complete many of the challenges because I don't have money or Internet at home. I did make a couple pages but I never got to post them. It did help me to learn some things about digital scrapbooking and it did challenge me. Since I am at my sisters house this week I will try and post them here on my blog in the next couple days. I hope to have Internet at home again some day soon and then I can participate in more monthly challenges and blog more here as well.
