alphabet prompt 2

It’s thanks to a comment on my blog by Melissa that prompted me to checkout her blog.This resulted in the following two digital layouts.All from a link she had on her blog!

I had been toying with the idea of making digital layouts, but I wasn’t sure how to make a template.So it was with great thanks that Donna,also in sunny Hertfordshire here in the UK has provided some  free on her blog.

I would like to try my hand at another blurb digital layout book from this class. I am still a total novice but as I always say practice makes perfect.

I know without doubt that I will look back at these layouts as being embarrassing in years to come. Remember those first scrapbook pages you made?

I am sure they are hidden,in a grotty album somewhere.

Anyway these alpha layouts were prompted from Shimelles True Stories prompt 2 –all letters and numbers

They took me forever to make as my computer was slow to load each layer I made. I get so impatient waiting for things. I could have done it all in a fraction of the time. So I had to keep going off to read blogs in my Google reader.

Poor me……

T is for Tasmin

R is for Ryan

I think I already know what my 2011 New Years Resolution will be.

2010 was to learn photography.

2009 was to get on a scrapbook design team

2011 will be to learn Photoshop inside out.

Well  I’m off to do some ironing and make a Thai chicken satay curry.But I’ll be back I haven’t checked out today's prompt yet.

Thanks for all you new people to my blogs comments.

Great layouts! I've only been using Photoshop Elements for 10 months. I'm mostly a traditional scrapper and only occasionally create digital layouts so I love using templates for those. Thanks for the nice comment and link to my blog! Looking forward to seeing more of your True Stories.

I feel exactly the same about digital scrapbooking - I know that my layouts never look as good as the ones I see on the web but I'm going to persevere and keep going. I've never done paper scrapbooking as I'm too fickle and need to rearrange everything constantly so I figured that digi scrapping was the way for me! That's why I like doing these classes, you pick up so much stuff from other people :-) I will have to look through your blog for tips on photography because that's where I really need to improve!

Love where you went with the prompt. Gorgeous LOs too.

I awww'd at the last sentence on Tasmin's LO and laughed at the last one on Ryan's. That's the sign of a great story-teller x
