A little creativity going on...

Don't quite know why I've actually been productive this weekend. Maybe because I've waited all week to sit down and scrap (since I was all out of glue). Maybe because this whole digital thing has me thinking differently. Who knows. But it's nice to crank out so much in one day. :)

Here's my first digi attempt (from earlier this week). I still need to practice with it though because I'm not super thrilled with it.

And since I'm pretty proud of my two smart kiddos & how quick they picked up digital scrapbooking. :)

Here's Dylan's:

Here's Kalli's:

And here's everything I got done tonight. Some are better than others but they are done. All 6 of them!!

I'm the biggest geek ....

EVER. Yeah seriously, I am. I'll admit it. I guess I'm just easily amused & excited over the smallest, miniscule little dorky things. Dorky computer things to be exact. Yeah, I got so excited when I figured out that I could run letters/labels/practically anything from the school's SIS system. Then came the Parent Portal thing. Oh yeah - that's cool. Totally cool that parents can look up info on their own kids (even though they probably should already know anyways but that's beside the point). But then today, well today I found another totally dorky thing that I am fascinated with - it's a little program called Gimp. I love playing around with photos and for the longest time I've wanted to buy myself Photoshop. Well that's not ever gotten around to happening so I decided to check at work & see if we had any licenses & if they were available for home use. Turns out - nope, only school license. Bummer! That is until I was directed to this Gimp program. Although I've never worked with Photoshop before, I kind of get the jist of how it's created through there (thanks Michelle!). Well this FREE program seems to be doing some of the very same things that you can do with Photoshop. How cool is that? Free plus seems to be very similar! I am so stoaked. I have ideas running through my head for Christmas cards & even attempting digital (eek! can't believe I'm saying that). Anyways, that's my nerd spill for right now. Fun fun stuff! (Did you see my banner? Totally created with that awesome freebie program!)

And just since I don't like posting without adding pictures, here's a few of my latest creations:
