Been At It Again! I decided that I was going to figure out how to make a few things on my own! I had the whole house to myself and was in the mood to that's just what I did! *Smile*

I made everything on this LO except for the background paper. I's nothing to write home to mom about, but I had fun and that's what this is all about...isn't it? *grin"

I have searched high and low on the net to find tutorials that will tell me how to make everything that I'd like to use in a LO.....haven't really had much luck at all. When I ask people where to look, they always tell me to go to the different scrap booking stores and usually those tuts are for Photoshop instead of PSP. So, I got to thinking....this has to be a lot like making tags or stationery. I've been doing both for years now so figured I'd use some of the knowledge I have from my tag and stat making days and just apply it to scrap booking. After all, it all is about the same concept as far as I can see. Needless to say, this is what I came up with. Not thrilled with it, but I proved to myself that I CAN do it!!! To be able to prove this to myself is the most important thing.
Next I'm going to work on something not about Christmas. I have tons and tons of pictures of our granddaughter and grandson....I want to use their pictures next to make some layouts. After I get them done, I'd like to have some scrapbooks printed up to give to their parents. Of course, I have this feeling this is going to take me a long time to get done seeing how I'm making everything myself. this was my day of playing! Tomorrow I'm going to start something else.
