Digital Scrapbooking pages

As I've mentioned in one of my earlier posts, my latest obsession is digital scrapbooking. I have tons of photos that keep accumulating and not enough time nor the desire to pull out the store currently located in the guest bedroom closet. I still enjoy paper crafting but not the mess, hence the digital fix. I am sooooo excited to finally be able to showcase some of my creations although it has taken me forever to figure it all out specifically the software, layering etc. Ahem (clearing my throat)...I'd like to thank my daughter for her beauty and inspiration, my husband for answering all of my repetitive annoying questions without complaint and then letting me tune out for hours on end, and finally the wonderful designers who share their talent and ideas, you've made a fan out of me.

Please feel free to offer constructive criticism...I often don't notice the harsh shadows or errors that I read about in the forums. I also need to work on my journaling big time. If I post these on the blog or any public forum, I have to credit the designers and deservingly so as they put alot of time and hard work into it. Please remember I'm a newbie so be gentle. Here are my favs so far:

Digitreats one of my fav designers among a few so far. I got this layout idea from Pamela who is also generously creating the kits. I love her designs, layout ideas and templates.

Maria Stones - Girly Girl kit - I loved Maria's layout so much that I tried to duplicate it inserting my own kid's pic of course.

Shappy Princess - Festival kit - My own layout! Go me - hee, hee!

Quick Page by CFrank - Living Doll Designs

Quick Page by Kristin Cronin-Barrow - Sweet Shoppe Designs. This is a set of quick pages she made for her daughter's birthday and I think they are beautiful! I'm not sure where I got the #2 & font but as soon as I do, I will add the credits.

I was playing around with the software and came up with this great layout. Not sure why I have the watermarks. I'm hoping someone from the FF group can chime in. I used the default dpi and I thought I was using freebie paper...maybe not?

Thanks for looking!

these are looking GREAT ! Welcome to FotoFusion addiction !

Copying someone's LO is fine, it is called scraplifting, if possible mention the original scrapper and it is a sign of appreciation of the scrapper's creativity.

Looks like you've got an adorable model so I am sure we will be seeing a lot more of her. One of the fun things about this is watching the children grow up in LOs.

Great Job for a newbie. I like the ideas for the messy type of scrapbooking.
