My daughter had her very first Swim Meet this past Saturday.  This was my favorite photo of the day.
The base is by Baers Garten 'Summertime' from Studio Girls Srapgraphics, the polka dot cardstock is by Paint the Moon Designs 'Carnivale' from OScraps, I got the rain spatter from KChen also at OScraps and the waves are from Scrap Girls 'Refresh'.  The bottom word art is from Ronna Penner at www.wcrapadelic.com.

1 Template 2 Pages

I was inspired by this very versatile template from Free Digital Scrapbooking, it was free for the May 11, 2011 Scraplift Challenge by Marie. 

GA Girls - Green textured background and butterfly embellishment are from Shabby Princess
Green stripe paper is from Maya de Groot's Prego Papers on Oscraps
Orange journal bubble is from Ju Kneipp at Oscraps
Paint bubbles are from KChen

My Beautiful Life - Green textured background and butterfly embellishment are from Shabby Princess
Background paper, butterflies, paint splashes are by Ju Kneipp on Oscraps
the rhinestones are from 'MissBerrySweet' by K Chen

I did not manipulate the template, that will be my next step.  This template worked wonderfully and was easy to make it look unique with different themes.

The Begining

The beginning.  I have spent the last 2 weeks teaching myself how to do digital scrapbook pages.  It is amazing how fast it is to pick up.  I have also become more familiar with my photo editing program, PSE7, during my journey.

I prefer to feel the paper, glue and doo-das in my hands but resorted to digital scrap booking after I realized how far behind I have gotten in documenting our lives.  I am a shutterbug and I take lots and lots and lots of photos and I need to do something with them.  I have three very active kids that keep my crafting time down to minimum.

Here is my first attempt, looking over my week's worth of work I am tickled on how well and quickly I have progressed.

The papers I used for this page are as follows:
     1. Green Background is from DSE Year in Review by CVL
     2. Blue Paper is from DSE Run For It by CVL
     3. Brown Line is from DSE Tractor Time by JVT
     4. Polka Dot Paper  Shabby Princess Plentiful Paper Dots
