New layout: Virginia Vacation (1)

One of my desires has been to get more active in creating digital scraps with our pictures. I have TONS of materials to use, but just do not sit down and actually use them, go figure! Jay in his brilliance thought ahead and suprised me with ths converter thing for our trip last week. It was so when the battery in my laptop run out, I could plug the battery pack into this box that was hooked to the truck and drew the power from the truck. Sorry I can't explain it better, LOL

Have you ever spent time on your laptop going down Virginia roads? In a truck? Those b-u-m-p-y roads? WHEW! On the way up I caught up on unzipping all my files. On the way back I photoshopped after I knew which files I had. Have you ever photoshopped in the dark? ;o)
This is how far behind I was- I had a summertime blog train from last July I had never opened! :-O Bunch of cute stuff you will be seeing ... I plan on doing some blog layouts with them *g*

So, keep in mind I'm no brilliant scrapper right now, that's the goal!

The stickers in the kit was darling and I thought they looked cute over the "real" sand, don't you think?

  1. Oh how cute! I love your layout.

  2. I love scrapbooking and vacationing in va so this post got my attention. Dh's family is from va. We went to Williamsburg/Jamestown/Yorktown and Monroe's home and Monticello last summer and this spring went to Masanutten and made a stop by Madison's home our last day before heading home. I am behind in scrapping my vacations. Gotta get to it.
