…now that does not mean I totally know what I am doing, or even half know what I am doing. I have been having fun playing with it though. It is kinda like when I first learned to stamp, I stamped with a Kaleidacolor pad, and it was the old Scarecrow set (don't remember the name, this was like over 11 years ago or more), on Vanilla Naturals paper, I don't even think it was layered or had any ribbon, but I held out that card and looked at it and felt like I was the best stamper in the world. Boy hasn't stamping come a long way?
I feel the same way with the My Digital Studio, I am learning as I go…and since I hate to read instructions it sometimes takes me a while. So after playing around, I almost just deleted this cause it is not the best and I thought nope, I am going to have a record of my first ever page, cause I never kept my first card.
So here goes…and no laughing.
I have not figured out how to mat the photos, I did figure out how to have a drop shadow…I'm all about the shadowing people, aren't I (speaking to anyone that has taken any of my classes).
I didn't embellish, I started with a few buttons and couldn't figure out how to align them evenly (again to anyone that knows me, I am soooo anal).
But oh my gosh how fun!
The problem is I attempted to make my first digital page right from scrap, all I used was a lay-out I should have done one of the pages already set up in a template. But I'm a rebel. Ha!
This page is from our Stampin' Up! cruise to Bermuda, and there was the Gibbs Hill Lighthouse and we took this crazy bus ride and then walked a long time uphill and we finally got there only to find out (one of our purposes for going) that they had no T-shirts and hardly any souvenirs with the Gibbs Hill Lighthouse name on them, and we were like what? It was fun, and the pictures were cool, I was a little freaked out with the height, Jeff took that looking down from the top of the lighthouse one, cause I was not going outside the wind was horrible, and I was afraid of getting blown off the side.
I wanted to show you a real scrapbook page, and this is one from Convention, I swear I move this photo of my BFF Tracy and I from page to page, that is the pleasure of black and white eh, it goes with everything. Plus look how young we are staying…forever young, forever thin…ahhh!!! We can dream it can't we ?

Isn't that a cute page? I love how the designer hardware is the center of the flower.
I love this picture of Tracy and I, it was taken a few conventions ago, and it makes me smile every time I look at it. I miss her so very much and I can hardly wait till I see her again.
Oh and more Feedblitz saga, I emailed Feedblitz, so I hope they help. Cause really I am not sure what to do. Then I think do I need to worry about it? I don't even know that.
I am off to clean up from a private class I had today, and get to work on a couple swaps, and then to cut paper for my 10/10/20 Christmas class.
Have an awesome Thursday and thanks for stopping in!
