Since we are celebrating Digital Scrapbooking day I decided to create a couple of quick digital scrapbook pages this morning.  The best way to make quick pages is to use one of the Designer Templates.  So that was what I did and they were both done in just a few minutes – it took longer to find the photos than anything else.

This template came with the Sun Garden Designer Paper Digital Download.  It is a 12×12 scrapbook page.  I added photos that we took this summer at the Stampin’ Up! Convention.  Michele, Dawn, Cindy and I were roommates and on the last night we had some fun with our camera – using the auto shoot function.  We all piled into one bed and found different places to set the camera trying to get pictures of the four of us.  We had fun making silly faces and laughing.  I can’t wait for the next Stampin’ Up! event which is the Leadership Conference in January.  Michele will be my room mate again and this time Becky and Diane will be with us.

I made very few changes to the template – I added my pictures, and the text at the bottom.  I moved a few of the elements just to get them off the pictures a little bit more but that was pretty much it.

And this other page is also a template – it is the Sunset Serenade Digital Kit – another 12×12 scrapbook page.  I added the stamp “So Grateful” which is from the So Typefelt stamp brush set that you can get free this weekend at the site.  I also moved the text box that was in that spot up on top of my large photo and added the word Family.  A few of the elements were moved to get them off the pictures and that was pretty much it.  I left the rest of the template alone.  I think the pictures work well with the colors in this template page.

These pictures are from this summer when we went to the beach with Greg’s family.  That’s Greg’s mom in the white dress.  And then the photo with Greg, his mom, sister and brother.  Then the large family photo includes the spouses and kids.  All of us dressed to match on the beach.  And we are all grateful to have some time together.  We will all be together again at Thanksgiving.  We have plans to be with my family during Christmas – I can’t wait to get pictures of all of us too.

A few minutes, no mess to clean up and my two scrapbook pages are done.  And now I can do some cleaning up , laundry and get dinner ready.  Both Kyle and Tyler are home this weekend and I’ve got BBQ chicken in the crock pot.  I plan to try a new recipe for some garlic cheese biscuits and later tonight we’ll have a fire outside before the boys go back to college.  Have a nice rest of your weekend.  I keep thinking it is only Saturday but I guess it really is Sunday.
