my first digital layout & thank yous

I was recently introduced to the world of digital scrapbooking. After playing around a little (like my new banner?), I did my first official layout tonight. It's pretty simple since I'm still learning, but I think it turned out cute. I downloaded the free kit from Shabby Princess, it's called Festival. I love the colors & the embellishments it came with. My new banner was made with the Promise kit. The font on the layout is Ali Edwards handwriting. I've always loved her handwriting, so I enjoyed using it on the page. I don't know if you can read the journaling, so here it is:

I love this picture of you. You
look like you're thinking about
something very important; I'd
love to know what it is.
At this stage in your life you're
always on the go. It's rare to
see you so thoughtful.

I received some great gifts for my birthday. In addition to some spending money (Thanks Grandma and Mom & Dad!), I also got this great digital photography book from Haley. I'm always saying that I want to learn to take better photos, and now I can. Thanks, sis!

This next gift is from Rebecca, Laurel, Sandy & Stephanie. I can't tell y'all how excited I am about this gift! It's a Bind-it-All personal binding system. I had seen this in the store & never thought I'd have a use for one. Well, then I decided to make my own coupon organizer. (Pictures to come in the next day or so.) Laurel was kind enough to let me borrow hers and once I used it I knew I had to have one! It's so easy to use and the mini-album possibilities are endless. I used hers again last weekend to make a mini book for Miss Elizabeth's 1st birthday.

My friends are quite sneaky as it turns out they bought it (and a bunch of goodies to go with it) while we were all together scrapping last weekend. I was completely in the dark about the whole thing, and thrilled to death! I can't wait to start on some more projects. I think when we get together on the 19th I'm going to make Jonathan an alphabet book. Everyone needs to be prepared for handmade Christmas gifts this year! ;o)

Thanks girls!!!

Well, I'm off to bed. I only have about 15 more minutes to be 31 years old, so I'd better enjoy it! "See" you soon.
