Check me out...I'm a digital girl!

Yes, we are living in a digital world, and I am now a digitial girl!  Take a look at my very first digital creation made using the My Memories Suite digital scrapbooking software:

I have been wanting to try digital scrapbooking for a long time now, but never knew where to start.  I've often commented on many digital layouts on, but never was steered in any direction.  Then entered Liz at My Memories Suite! 

My Memories Suite is a digital scrapbooking software that is not only super simple to use, but has a large variety of gorgeous digital papers and embellishments!  I spent hours admiring the digital items, but only 10 minutes to create my first digital layout!  I am so excited about this software that I want to gift a copy to one of my followers!  Are you as excited as I am yet?

Go here:

and take a look around.  Come back here to my blog and comment, letting me know what your favorite digital paper pack is for one entry into the giveaway.  Be careful, you can easily be there for hours!

Want an extra entry?  Go to the My Memories blog or like them on Facebook or even follow them on Twitter for extra entries!  Just let me know that you've done that and I'll give you up to 3 extra opportunities to win the software!

I will randomly select a winner on Sunday, November 20, 2011 at 10pm from everyone who comments.
While you are doing that, I will be busy creating more digital creations!

October brings super cute things!

As promised, here are some of the projects I completed last month - some mini albums, a TON of layouts and a few tags for a swap.  Here is something I did for jenniferd1009's swap on  It is a chinese noodle box with the teeniest, tiniest mini album to accompany it!  I used all scraps to create this:

Here is another mini album I made using DCWV papers (my absolute favorite line of papers!)  It was created using the teeny tiny paper know, the ones we used to get our candy in from the local candy store back in the day.  Do you remember or am I aging myself?

I used my cricut machine to cut out "All Boy."  I then inked the title with white pigment ink to give it that "dusty" look.  The robot is a Recollections dimensional sticker.  The rest of the embellishments were just laying around!  Here is one of the pages in the mini paper bag album:

This is a picture of my son...the super star!  I took this picture of him last fall.  He still looks the exact same!  he is such a little poser.  I used the Twinkle, Twinkle Little Boy Stack for the entire album.

Check out some of the tags I made for my friend Martica's swap on

The only criteria for the tags were that they needed to have a dressform on it, and of course be elaborately decorated.  I actually had a difficult time creating five different tags, but in the end they looked like little parisian boutiques!  Most of them had quotes by CoCo Chanel on them...all of them had ribbons and trims.

I can't wait to see the tags I get back...until then, SMOOCHES!
