More Scrapbook Pages

I've spent entirely too much time the last few days doing scrapbook pages, but it's been fun. I am trying to make the switch from Paint Shop Pro to Photoshop Elements so it's been slow, but each layout gets easier and easier.

Here's one with Trenton's first photo.

When Jenny sent me this photo of Jarrod, Trenton, and Bailey I knew it was destined for a layout. I had to do a little surgery on the photo though because Bailey was not looking at the camera. Jenny had sent several poses and Bailey was looking at the camera in one of them, so I cut his head from that photo and pasted into this one. I still had to do a little cleanup work since part of the original head stuck out under the new head.

My First Grandbaby...and a Freebie!

I am proud to introduce our first grandbaby, Trenton Brantley Smith. He is an absolutely adorable little guy! Robert and I were able to visit him and his Mommy and Daddy and Bailey (his doggie) for a week after he was born. We got to spend a lot of time hugging and cuddling him. We can't wait to see him again! Sure wish he didn't live so far away.

I made this layout using Sweet Beginnings: Blue by Penny's Miscellany and Word Jumbles: Baby also by Penny's Miscellany.

And for those of you who love the digi-scrapping freebies, I am giving another old SNL kit, Fall Into Christmas. I made this one in October 2007. Needless to say, my designing is going to be taking a back seat to actual scrapping since I plan to be spending more time making layouts with photos of our new little precious bundle. But keep watching the blog because I will still be giving freebies from time to time.
