Digital Scrapbooking

Photography has been one of my favorite hobbies since I was 12 or 13 so it was a natural assumption on my part that I would love scrap-booking just as much. WRONG! I am sorely lacking the patience to be a serious scrap-booker. I can sit down, have a game plan in my head, and get a good start on my layout and then my patience wears thin and I stop. I usually repeat this every 6 months or so.

Imagine my sheer delight when a friend of mine mentioned the
ScrapBlog website! I have spent the past week putting together a few layouts with my favorite family pictures. My goal is to get 30 or 40 pages done, print them, and bind them in a simple leather cover. Here is one of my favorite layouts. For those of you who happen to be dyed-in-the-wool scrap-bookers, please feel free to offer any advice and critiques!

I really want to comment on your great use of shadows under the photos. I would try adding shadows under the embelishments as well. Like the paperclip.
I used to digiscrap as well until some of my friends started to real scrap and not I must admit I am a paper addict! http://www.shabbyprincess.com/ is a great site for free digiscrap stuff! Happy Scrapping!
