I've finally gone and done it. This afternoon I've had my very first go at Digi-scrapping and managed to produce the new banner at the top of my bloggy-blog - not bad for a first attempt? Thanks to the fantastic Clare for the instructions on how to change the banner in the new blogger.
I've been putting off doing it digi-style for ages, mainly cos I feel like I'm deserting my real-life stash, and there's nothing like a stroke of some Crate when you're feeling low. However, I was mooching around on UKS, as you do and decided to check out a few links. Before I knew it, I was downloading a kit and alphabet from Peppermint Creative, and using the fabby tutorials from Jen, which I found via a link from Katie, I've had a great time! I used Adobe Photoshop Elements as that's what I'm used to and once you get the hang of it it's pretty easy to do the basics. There's loads of free stuff to download too, so go on, give it a whirl! Might have to try some proper layouts now...
In other news... I spent last night babysitting - the first and, hopefully, last overnighter I'll ever do. Looking after a one year old and a nearly-three year old is usually fine, but having to sleep in the baby's room and him waking up for a good hour in the middle of the night was not. Might have to rethink this having kids malarkey... It was worth the lack of sleep though, as I earned more than enough to add to my Crimble money to buy my new camera! Hurrah! I have a Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ7 on order as we speak (thanks Dad!).
And finally, a Baby Z update: She moved into a room with her Mom yesterday and is hopefully going to be allowed home in the week! How amazing is that? She's such a fighter and truly a little miracle.
