The Disney PhotoBook that started it all!

Click here to view this photo book.

This was my first venture into the world of digital scrapbooking. I wanted to make a book about our Disney trip and I wanted to be able to make a copy for my MIL, so I started learning how to use SBC+ and make my own pages. I am now a total addict! So, here is the book that started it all!

October Desktop

One of my favorite things to do in SBC+ is to make a new monthly desktop at the beginning of each month. I make one and put it on my laptop, my work laptop, and I email it to Scott for his work laptop. It is so fun to have current pictures on my desktop! This month, I used a couple of photos taken as we prepared for a 5 year old's "Rock Star" birthday party. I used CM's Motor Grunge kit for the background and mats, and an Alpha from Ellie Lash's Pumpkin Patch kit (recolored to match papers). I hope you like it!

Here are a few recent ones that I thought were really great! (BTW, you don't have to use SBC+ to use these freebies!)
