layouts, and why I love digital scrapping

So I officially have decided what I love about digital scrapbooking. I love that I can create a duplicate layout for each of my boys, but personalize it for them. For instance - the Easter basket layouts. I wanted to showcase a picture of each boy for their individual layout. It was a simple switch, and took me seconds instead of having to recreate a separate layout for each boy. I love it!

And I've been using some digital templates this week, and REALLY enjoy them. I do feel a little like cheating...but oh well, right now - cheating works for me :)

So cute! I wouldn't think of it as cheating - at least you're still scrappin' and preserving memories for you and your boys! It's like baking a cake from a mix instead of from scratch. It's so much easier and faster to make it out of a box and the end result is still yummy and makes people happy - and you are happier because it took less time and worry. Plus you have you more time to kiss your boys' sweet cheeks and play! :)

Have a fun weekend!

LOOOOOVE these layouts. I wish you lived closer so I could strong-arm you into a digi scrapping tutorial. I just don't even know where to start, but I love the look of it. Good job, as always. :)

Fun layouts, and great pictures from Salt Lake. When we were there in November I was so excited to see the toys still behind the couch and stuff. Brought back lots of memories! Cute layouts, and looks like fun digital scrapbooking. What program do you use? And what program do you use to make the banner for your blog? Love you. Alicia

You totally don't know me, but I have loved your scrapbooking style for years. This may sound funny, but I have a question and was wondering if you wouldn't mind emailing me. Thanks!

Carolee from HugClub has 5 kids and she has been digi scrapping for years - or making one paper and then scanning and copying. But usually she does what you did and changes the focus pic for each child and then prints each one their own copy with them as the focal point.

I just have to think that Heavenly Father gave us all these tools and short cuts for us to use. He loves us and wants our lives to be easier, I think. LOVE YOU - Aunt Charlotte
