Some of these ladies are old pros while others, like myself, are new to it all but we are all crafty so there should be some great layouts to enjoy and maybe a trick or two to learn.

Please join us and hop along starting with Jearise  our hostess.  Also, we have a special digital tutorial given by Amy.  at the end of the hop so make sure you hop through all the digital displays from our wonderful scrap bookers.  Our sponsor for this hop is My Memories Suite .

If you have traveled from Susan, then you are on the right digital highway and will continue over to Lisa. If you got lost and found yourself on my doorstep by mistake, you can head to the beginning of the digital highway here: Jearise's blog.

I have half heartedly tried digital scrapbooking before, just bascially goofing around with it.   I had Memory Mixer which I got at a rummage sale and tried the free software from Scrapbook Flair.  But, I wanted something a little user friendly.   So, I purchased My Memories Suite to create the projects for this hop.  It is awesome.  I love it!  While I will always be a traditional homemade scrapbooker, Digital will help to make some books and projects.  And, I will enjoy doing both.   After purchasing the My Memories Suite, I have decided to make a book for my husband for our anniversary.  While I have plenty of time, I made five pages for this hop.  I used My Memories Suite software to make all 5 pages.  The heart background and Hearts came from Scrapbook Flair.  They offer free background papers and embellishments

These 5 pages are my first official trys at Digital.  I will finish this book for my husband and hopefully will get better and more experienced as I go.   It was fun and I will post more pages as I do them.  So, stay tuned.  Thanks for hopping with us.  Now  onto Lisa to see what she has created, I know it is something wonderful
