Scrapping Fool

This pre trip report has given me the drive to get my last Disney trip scrapbooked

I have tried on several occasions to scrap our 2009 trip and it just hasn't worked out. It seems I set out to do it and I get sick. Like really sick

I'm going through a little lupus set back right now and I don't get out much lately because of it so I figured this was a great time to spend even more time on my computer than usual

I used to scrapbook the old fashioned way. Then in 2003, I discovered digital scrapping!!! I have been hooked ever since! Back then, I had to make my own elements and papers and it took a loooong time

Now, I just buy all the stuff! It's so much easier and faster and people way more talented than I create some awesome stuff

I love it because I can use my minimal Photoshop skills to do my layouts, customize what I buy and journal it all. Then I print them out in these awesome coffee table-like books. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way they turn out and will never go back to using papers, markers, glue and scissors

I have been buying digital SB stuff for YEARS now and I honestly can't tell you exactly where I got everything, however, I can list my fave sites and you can go check it out for yourself if you want to know who made what.


In the past 6 years, 95% of my stuff that I have purchased have been from the above sights.

And here is a Beginner's Guide for DigiScrapping:

Most scrappers like using 12 x 12 layouts but my favourite publisher has these great 11 x 8 books so that is what I use.

Okay, so now onto my layouts

More in the next post....

I loved all your scrapbooking pages. Gorgeous. I started digital scrapbooking in 2008. I try to create one book for each year and another for each vacation. I still don't have every year done, but I'm working on it. It is sooo much easier than all the cutting and pasting but I still seem to have a hard time getting the job done. I need to get back on that...
For the record, Kira looks very happy in most of those pages. You did a good job scrapbooking out the baby pictures.
Can't wait to see more.
Looking forward to:

Amazing scrapbook!! So impressed! I've been using shutterfly to document our trips, but you may have converted me!

It's so nice to see you in so many pictures, too. I sometimes feel the moms get left out of the scrapbook, since we are the ones usually behind the camera!

GREAT layouts... funny you talk about Digi scrapbooking. I signed up for an online class to get me motivated to start. I can't wait. I love your scrapbook designs. So, I have a question? Do you store all your stuff on your computer or do you put it on a separate hard drive? My only hesitation with digital scrapbooking is all the large files on top of my large picture files.

Just caught up after a week off the DIS..... and what a great way to catch up!!!

I digital scrapbook also and am also still working on my 2009 trip with a goal to finish before our November trip! (have a few of my layouts posted in my PTR also- but not nearly as many as you). I love, love, love to look at others scrappages! So thanks for sharing! (also, loved the pictures of AKV because that is where we are staying this November). I think I have all the same kits as you as well!

I also have three of the same foodie choices for our Nov. trip: Be Our Guest (lunch), Norway Princess Breakfast & Prime Time.

And we stayed for a few nights pre-Dream cruise in June at Coronado. Like you, Southwest theming wasn't my cup of tea, but the resort is very nicely done. The rooms are big & nicely decorated. And my children LOVED the pool. They have a 'turning on' ceremony every day when pool opens where you can sit on the Mayan temple and do a little countdown to the water running down. The biggest thing for me is I didn't like the food options at that resort........ My kids LOVED the slide though. Not too big & a little jaguar that spits- perfecto!

Great updates..thanks for sharing!

My name is Mike...but you can call me Underdog.

Hope you guys dont mind if we join you on the cruise part of this trip..We'll sure try and help make sure it does'nt s#ck. Of course being that we cruised with guys a few times already...perhaps Robin and i were part of the s#ck factor...Or maybe just Robin..

I recall a classic Kira meltdown on Castaway Cay one cruise..Too funny! (for us anyway) My dad would always say "you gotta pay your dues".

Looking forward to reading about your planning.
I'm sure it will make the cruise wait easier.
