Aloha, all! For the easiest of all scrapbooks, Stampin' Up!'s digital program, My Digital Studio, is the best!

Aloha, all! The last time I posted I said that I was so OVER snow. And I just sit and read about snow, I don't live in it.

Aloha, all! As promised, here is the right page that goes with the left page in the scrapbook layout I introduced yesterday. This is my grandson, Quin, who had a blast at the Oregon Zoo. I wanted him to stand in front of the Black Bear because it had the ruler markings. But Quin wanted to stand in front of the Sun Bear, because they're the same size. Of course, both … [Read more...] about More Scrapbooking
