New quick page, from scratch!

So, I've been playing around in PSP, learning a lot of stuff. I made two layouts completely from scratch.

The first one is Zane at 7 weeks, and the second one is Zane on St Patrick's day.

I love that I have learned how to make the barcodes! I am also learning how to make lace, doily's, ribbons, and much much more!

I'm working on an Easter layout. As soon as I have it done, I will post it.

These were created at 300 ppi and saved as png's.
You can grab the quickpages at:

I am furiously working on my first paid kit, so keep checking back!

Have a great day!

Quick Page contest and a layout

I entered a quick page contest, hosted by Jessica Dixon of Jessica Dixon Designs using her fabulous and free Childhood scrap kit. I thought it would be perfect to showcase Zane's smiles.

Journalling reads: "I first smiled on January 17th for Mommy. I made Daddy wait until January 22nd to see me smile. Then, because it seemed like fun, I made them wait until February 17th to capture my smile on camera. For one whole month, I would smile at random, but then I would cry as soon as they got the camera. It was fun to watch the expressions on their faces. They took over 100 pictures trying to catch me in the act. I finally got tired of the bright light flashing in my eyes, so I gave up and Grinned Big!"

Who I am, and why I'm here

Hello. I am a 32 year old wife and mother. My DH, Brian, is wonderful and we are celebrating the second year of our honeymoon. Our LO, Zane, is 3 months old and homegrown. We are planning to adopt #2. I am a Christian and enjoy serving in my local church. I enjoy scrapbooking, both paper and digital, and am learning to create my own digital scrap supplies. I look forward to sharing some of my dzines here, and hope to use my digital creations to raise funds for our adoption.
