To digi or not to digi, that is the question?

To digi or not to digi, that is the question??? I love digtal stamps but don't have the money to invest in Copics (I have 5) and have a big mess with storing them on the computer.  The paper I used was horrible with markers for coloring. Does anybody have some great digi stamp hints?

Here are free Christmas digital stamps at About.com!  Look at these cuties...




Other free digi stamps- master list on About.com.    And the best on of course is Free Digital Stamp blog

Card Cupid blog hop this weekend!

BLOG HOP

This organization is designed to collect and send a bundle of cards with words of encouragement to needy children for their birthday or in a time of need along with a cuddly card package that includes a stuffed animal. We will help to make sure that each needy child’s birthday is celebrated and that children in the hospital receive well wishes.

Blog hop will start at 8:00 AM (EST) on Friday November 26th and run through Saturday November 27th. Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps will be sponsoring our blog hop and they have graciously donated a $10 Gift Certificate! In addition to that, each Design Team member has donated something to the blog hop Grand Prize and you won't believe what they donated.

I would love if you came and join us.  Great challenges, inspiration, resources, games and chances to win prizes!!!!   Creative Scrapbooking Divas

My Oct Update/ digital scrapping

I feel like it's been forever since I've been on here. Hubby thinks I should just take the month off because of my two surgeries and just recuperate. I have to admit it was stupid to go to my crop, but I run it and felt like I was letting everyone down. Later I got a lot of support from the ladies and a lot of people stepped up to the plate to help me, even if I need help for November's crop. So I'm not feeling so overwhelmed!

Here is a digital scrapbook that I made for our vacation this year.  Much easier in the clean up, lol. 
Free scrapbooking design personalized with Smilebox
Smilebox is great.  You can share photos online like I just did or if you pay a monthly/yearly fee then you can print out the book pages or send it to a store for them to put the book together.  This is like digital scrapbooking for beginners!

Simple can be Better

I've been on a "simple is better" kick lately. So I thought this would be a great challenge. All you need to do is create a layout that is simple but packs a punch.
Recipe:
One Pattern Paper (you can matte photos)
One Embellishment
One Scrapbooking Technique

Here is my creation :)
 I used one piece of pp (from Target's $1 bin), I used one chipboard sticker and for the technique, I used my glitter glue to outline some of the flowers and such on the paper.

If you would like to participate in this challenge, just go to Creative Scrapbooking Divas .
Click on the challenge forum and post your picture.  I am offering a small rak for this challenge and it doesn't end until Oct 31st.

Checking in

I've been a little off the last couple of months due to health reasons. I've really been focusing on CSDivas and being on the design team. It is a ning. site, and you have to set up a profile page which takes all of two seconds. They are wonderful ladies, and I love the challenges, tips, quotes and inspiration that I find there. Our Fall Blog Hop was a great success, and I want to thank everyone who participated!  Here is a couple of project that I got done before my surgery Tuesday (one down, one to go on the 25th).  I made this cute favor cake for a baby shower.  It was a big hit.  You can find these cake/pie templets all over the internet.  I added some Prima flowers, bling, ribbon and Cuttlebug.
