I'm getting my "end of the year" photo book ready for printing and thought I'd share. I love digital scrapbooking and these are a couple of my "December" pages.

Murphy is almost 10 months in these pictures, outweighs L.E. (22 months) by almost 20 lbs, and is at least 2 inches taller. But she's the boss, and she won't let him forget it! I call this first picture, "Top Dog." She can't put her neck over his anymore, so this is next best thing :)

Spoofer, those are really nice! What program do you use to make your digital scrapbooks. I would really like to do something like this with my dogs.

I use Photoshop Elements 7 for the actual "processing" and purchased kits for the papers, and embellishments. This particular layout includes elements from 2 different kits. I "made" the letters myself. Have you ever done any digital scrapbooking? Lots of good sites on the 'net...I'd be glad to give you websites if you're interested. This is my first time using all my own pages (not using the standard layouts from the print sites) - I'll let you know how it turns out...

Digital scrapbooking is so much fun. I use photoshop 7 to do mine.

Yours looks really good

P
I would love to see your pages! I've mostly just experimented and played with the programs. Do you make your own papers and embellishments? I'm learning to do that - my latest achievement is "chipboard alphabets." It is fun, and helps me relax after sometimes stressful days...:)

I just seen these recently with my friend. His mom did one of his life through the years.

Very neat idea and the pics of the dogs are nice. And the Kids too:)

That is a great card! Great picture of the kids - did you do your own photography,too? Did you use a kit? I'm still learning how to make my own papers and layouts. I seriously thought about sending out cards by e-mail this year... I may yet! Shutterfly is having a big sale right now, so I'm going to get this years' book done before it ends :)

I lost most of my finished pictures to a virus (note to self, save off of the computer too)

I quickly did up a Christmas card of the kids, not great, but it worked.
Hey - did you know you can upload pictures from Photoshop 7? I got an e-mail a few weeks ago that it was time to do that for last years' pictures. Safekeeping...

Sorry about losing so many pictures - that is really harsh:( I know I'd be just sick...

Thank you! I want to put my kids' pictures in a digital scrapbook, too. I think I'm going to make one book and give them each a copy. They were inseparable growing up, so there are few pictures of them alone:)

I take my own pictures, that one of the kids is a cropped picture taken when my daughter had blown the candles out on her birthday cake. Usually I take a nice picture that is suitable for framing, but I just did not get around to it last year (there were only 12 months to get it done..lol).

That card was made up from a free kit I downloaded, it may have been from a few kits actually.

Here are a few sites, some have both paid kits and free and some are just free:

I love how everyone comes up with different sites! I'm going to go check out Littlestitches' sites now. You can Google "digital scrapbooking" and come up with hundreds (thousands?) of sites. These are a couple of my favorites:

http://www.afterfivedesigns.com [url]http://shop.scrapbookgraphics.com Lorie Davison at scrapbookgraphics is one of my favorite designers, and SusieM is also very good! From After5 Designs, I really like Lily Design's work. I combine kits for a custom page and this first one is one of my favorites; the second is a different kind of kit... a fantasy package just for fun (Lorie Davison's kit). L.E. Belle is about 14 weeks in these pictures. I actually use this kit for a lot of my grandson and granddaughter's pictures:)

It is fun! On pages like the second one, it is so easy... just assemble the different pieces of the kit into one page and insert your puppy (or grandkid as the case may be). I like this one because it has such fun, fantasy type elements - so fast, no work, just playing:) There's more satisfaction when you make your own elements, but not nearly as fancy - I'm not that good:) I'll be glad to get the book done - I figure I have about a thousand pictures to go through and choose the best of the year... Fun!
