Tonight, I joined the ladies of Scraps of Color
in a fun Scrapbook Pajama Party. It was fun to scrapbook in my pajamas online using a predefined sketch and list of supplies. As a digital scrapbooker, I was challenged to create the sketch digitally and design along with everyone else. It was even more exciting that, ClassyGirl, flipped the script on us by turning the sketch 90 degrees to the right. My layout inside of StoryBook Creator then had to be turned as well which was not just a rotate. It required the images to be realigned as well within the software. I love to think outside of the box, this truly happened while ClassyGirl taught her traditional layout. The other challenge for this layout was to use the cutter tools to tear the edges of the page. What fun!!!!
Happy Scrapping and Stamping,
In celebration of my forty eighth birthday, I traveled to my home state of California for a week to visit my family and best friend. I spent the time scrapbooking with friends, driving up the coast of California, visiting my in-laws, cousins, relaxing and truly enjoying my best friend. On my drive up to Central Coast California, my cousin and I stopped at our family stop, the Malibu Rock. For years, our family has stopped at this rock on our travels up and down the coast. For us, it brought back memories of our children in their youth and time spent together. I love this layout because it shows my favorite cousin and I together in the beauty of this spot on Pacific Coast Hwy. I also enjoyed trying one of Pixel2Pages technique challenges that keep motivated. In this photo, I distorted the wave of the ocean a little to give it some motion. I also, use a portion of a template for the photos and challenged myself with some digital titling in Creative Memories StoryBook Creator which has become my ultimate favorite tool. I hope you enjoy the layout as must as I enjoyed creating it.
Happy Scrapping and Stamping,

After much prayer and thought, I have joined the Creative Memories family. I'm so excited. It's so funny but its actually where I got my start scrapbooking over 20 years ago. I look at my daughter and can't believe she's 23 and I started when she was a baby... making a CM album that is my pride and joy today. I joined CM because I also love digital scrapbooking and their Storybook Creator Software has me hooked. I've loved Photoshop for years but this program gets me going fast and does so much that I can't stop using it.
I also have a wonderful support team that I already enjoy working with.
Watch as I share my creative ideas digitally as well as traditionally. Feel free to share your scrapbooking ideas, questions and projects. Also visit my website www.myCMsite.com/MsRaes for all the great products that Creative Memories has to offer. Thanks again for all your love and support of my endeavors over the years. Be blessed.

I need motivation to get it done. So here goes. This is how my space look today. I need my space back. Those boxes are full of scrapbooking supplies not to mention the closet. So off the computer and to work I go. Pray for me!
As promised here is one layout created from following Patty's book. Using a Photoshop Element template I was able to make this beautiful page of me enjoying the Pacific Ocean in Santa Barbara, California on a visit last year.
It demonstrates how to make words out of your photos and blend them together. Its a great effect that I plan to use over again with other techniques.
