Yesterday my computer got an awful virus that had me down for hours. Thank goodness my husband has me up and running again today! One of my goals in scrapbooking this year, is to catch up on OLD pictures. I have tons of pictures from when my kids are little that still need done, too, and I'm working on that as I go. But I'm talking about pictures from when I was a little girl back to even some from when my mom was a little girl. My mom has an old metal lunch box that houses a lot of these old pictures. A few years ago, my dear sweet husband scanned them all in. A good quarter of them were so dark, I teased him for wasting his time scanning them in. I didn't know the joys of photoshop then. Now, I'm still no photoshop expert, so I haven't gotten any of the photos looking like a pro has been working with them. But I've been able to get a lot of them in a condition I can use them on scrapbook pages. For this page I used last week's scrapbook sketch at Inspired Crafters. To see the sketch, you can click here.
One of my favorite things about doing my scrapbooking digitally, is how easy it is to change things around. I did the first layout, had it totally finished, and loved it. But then when I looked at it again (after being away working on a different project), I worried it was too dark and drab. So I changed the main background paper and the color of the flowers. I still like both and my husband prefers the darker one. Since it's for my mom, I guess I will let her have the final say!
