scrap for today:)

the best thing about digital:

digital scrapping never ceases to amaze me.
it is just crazy that you can take a blank template, plug some photos into it and then just let it sit for a while until you are ready to attack it.
for example, right now i have about 10-12 templates with pictures on my desktop.
they are all the photos i have up to this morning (yes, i am current on my pictures).
it took me about 2 hours to get those done in one stitting
12 pages in 2 hours?...yup!
then i just let them simmer until i find the right paper and then i get them finished:)

this template is a jenn lindsay blended photo one.
i could never do this technique on my own...takes too long!
but i have a bunch of blend templates that i can adjust for what i need.
easy peasy!
i added the paper layers, title and subtitle...done in about 25 minutes!

it is seriously magical!
and i do not use the word lightly!!!!

there is something missing...

this afternoon in between all our errand running , we made a quick stop @ the park,
of course, i took the camera.
fall is my absolute favorite-est time to take pictures.
the light is beautiful and the colors are amazing.
we got to the park and miss zoe had a meltdown in the car.
there was no way she was coming out.
since she found out all the things she is allergic to, she has become very very ocd about avoiding those things.
today she was NOT going out to the park because of the grass and ragweed.
so we parked in a far spot and took pictures next to the car.
and that is how it is most of the time.
we deal with it as best we can because that is what we do.
we adapt.
and we try to make things are good as we can.

a few more catch up pages:)

from that to this:) franB.template

this is the template as it was.
i turned off all the embellishment layers and the paint layer also.

after i finished the template tweaking, i wanted to include more photos.
duplicating the photo layers and then re-arranging them did the trick.
i was able to include all the pictures i took of my puppy on that particular day.

paper and embellishments from the blog train blog for october.
all *freebies*
