Hope you like it.

It's been about five months since I haven't done a layout, but it just took a great sketch and stunning pages from the DT at Sketchabilities to get me going, but I did it digital to be able to also play at Digitally Sweet Challenges.  Some of the digital embellishments are mine and all others from various designers,  Hope you like it.


GATLINBURG digital layout

I must say that I am truly fascinated with digital scrapbooking... not only I save space, but a lot of time, and luckily I have found a place where I can get it all.  It is at Shabby Princess, every single kit is stunning, and even though I am using only their free mini kits, the layouts turn to be awesome (to my taste of course)...  Hope you like this one too.

When I sold my Cricut cartridges he was VERY upset cause now he didn't have fonts to cut for his school projects and he couldn't make cards for his "girlfriends".  He was not happy that I got the Silhouette CAMEO until yesterday that we sat and did his first school project of the year.  We opened Silhouette Studio and I guided him through to getting fots, position the words/letters, taking a visual measurement, loading the mat, and cut.  Simple as that... he also picked the font he want it and with over 1000 free fonts I have uploaded in my MAC, he cut to his heart content...and he did it all on his own...

To bad that the red INK was low for me printing SKdigis all the time, and by the time I got to Office Depot last night, they where closed.   But here is his project and hopefully he gets an A+ thanks to Silhouette and

Free Fonts from Kevin and Amanda (she has 15 new free fonts)
