A dangerous addiction has begun: My dive into the world of digi-scrap!

So as some of you know, I’m taking photos in the essence of Project Life. I am absolutely besotted with this concept. However, it seems New Zealand is not a fan of me actually purchasing a kit and I’m begining to think that if I don’t start something now, it will all be too much for me to handle when I actually get my hands on a kit. I could do the digital version I guess – but I’m a fan of flexibilityand from what I’ve been told, the digital version can be a stick-in-the-mud at times. SO! I thought maybe I would start scrapbooking. But where would I start!? And where would all the bits and bobs come from!? And how could I be bothered going to random craft stores (which I would no doubt spend too many hours and too many dollars in) with a Commando baby in tow (Spotlight may not look so favourably at me making a nest in their cushion display and popping out my boobs for Will’s quick feed)!?

As I drooled over all the pretty pages on the internet, I came across the term ‘digi-scrap’. I was thinking to myself there must be some full-on, passionate lady-geniuses that have built robots to aid in their dedicated scrapbooking hobby. How delighted was I to find out that this was not the case; it involved much of the fun of scrapbooking only doing it on a computer! Woohoo! I love computers! Now to get my hands on some digi-scrapping software…. OMG! I already have it! And here was I thinking Photoshop was just to edit out all your pimples and whiten your teeth! I made a note to have a play with it when bugalugs was in bed asleep.

Then, at our mother’s group yesterday (Hi Ladies xx), one of my favourite crafty mumma’s (who joins in my worshipping of those godesses that are American-scrapbook-lady-stars!) piled a handful of scrapbooking idea books on her bench for me to check out; and as if I wasn’t already having difficulty keeping my drool under control, it was now pouring out so fast I had to put on one of Will’s bibs! I had to start something.

So last night, with my hubby away on a work trip and the boy fast asleep, I trawled the internet and found that I wouldn’t even have to buy stuff to get going. There’s heaps of free gear, you just need to look (my fav site was Shabby Princess – ♥ it!). So, busy downloading I was and then busy creating I was too. And where did I start? My wedding! We had our two-year anniversary the other day and I still haven’t got a single image printed. Bah!

By 11pm, with eyes hanging out of my head, I had my first ever scrapped page. Now I’m sure I will get around to some traditional scrapping eventually, but in the meantime, this page made me all so excited. And I knew exactly who I wanted to share it with. You. TA-DA! xx

Friday has come once again. I swear they arrive quicker now I post these piccies on a Friday. It kind of marks the day for me, so where they all used to run into each other, they no longer do. Each day is defined – I guess it’s getting me in training for returning to work. Bah! Work-schmurk! Let’s get into the piccies….

Will likes flat silicone!

Will has the whole toy to play with, yet feasts on the silicone base - lol.

And unfortunately that’s all for this week. Can’t be a photographic wizard every week I guess.

I’m looking forward to spending a great weekend with my Mum (Will’s Gran), and I hope everyone else has a fantablous weekend too! See you all on Mealy Monday!

Foto Friday! #3

We’re at the end of yet another week – gosh they are flying by! Friday sees me reflect on the week with photos as per the Project Life concept by Becky Higgins.

Speaking of life, I’ve made a decision that a blog entry every day is cutting into time with my family more than I’d like. So I’ve declared the weekend a blog-free zone. My next post will be Monday (Mealy Monday to be exact!).

Anyway – back to the piccies, this week is pretty Will heavy, but that’s ok. I know you all like catching up with his hijinks… Enjoy!
