Belly Buttons & Blue Jeans


Todays LO features Ms. Lillybug showing off her belly button. I used the "Blue Jeans" kit from Vicki @ http://vicki20.blogspot.com/ I love the colors in this one! When I made the QP, I made two versions. If you can use the one with the arrow, be my guest! But I figured one a little less photo specific would probably be better for most of ya'll. Password is: button Be sure to pop on over and pick up the full kit so you can add your own embellies! Oh, and before I forget, there is a little tip I've been meaning to pass on. You know how no matter what color you use for your journaling it always looks kinda' harsh? Well, I discovered the solution! Get on over and see Sonia @ http://daretoscrap.blogspot.com/ and pick up her fabulous "Pen Pressure" style. I've been using it for a while now and really love the look! Be sure to leave her some love if you download!

Robin left a question on 4shared, wanting to know how I got started. I paper scrapped for many, many years, so I already knew quite a bit about page design. I was spending a couple of hundred bucks every month at Hobby Lobby. I had noticed references to digital scrapping in Creating Keepsakes, so in May of 2006 I took the plunge and went digital, mainly as a way to save some dough. I looked up a few tutorials on the net and started making pages. I have to admit, some of the first ones were pretty embarrassing. That's the great thing about digital though, if you screw it up you just start over and you never run out of supplies! In February of this year I answered a CT call, and had to start a blog. This place was pretty pathetic looking at first! So, I guess the short answer is that I taught myself. You can do it, too. Play, play, PLAY!
