It's fall...

Wow! I can't believe how quickly time is flying by. The girls are all settled into school and loving it! Mikaela thinks kindergarten is great. Mondays and Tuesdays are her favorite days. Mondays because she has computer lab and Tuesdays because she has library! Kasey also loves Tuesdays. She goes over to Lucketts Elementary for the Futura program. She enjoys the program so much. Jordyn is just enjoying favorite days like the others. Blue Ridge is treating her well, but she is tired. The days for her are long, but she's adjusting. She's making new friends and still keeps up with most of her old friends.

I have been trying to keep up with my class on My Creative Classroom and doing my regular
VA work too. I haven't scrapbooked much lately,
but did discover digital scrapbooking. I always loved
to look over the pages people make using the digital kits, but was afraid to just dive in and do it. I took several photoshop classes, but never used it. I finally got the nerve to redo my blog (this one...what do you think?) and it gave me the courage to just do a layout! I did one and now I've done several. It isn't hard at all, but I know there is so much more I can do to jazz up my layouts...I just haven't learned all there is about photoshop yet! Here's my first layout ever - the girls on the first day of school.

Keep an eye out for more layouts to come...I'm addicted!!! I've actually started purging my papers, embellishments and other items in my scrapbook room. I can't see myself giving up the "old fashioned" way of scrapbooking, but this way seems a lot less cluttered and doesn't take up nearly the space! I took my car the other day for an inspection and while I waited for the 45 minutes, I scrapbooked! Can I tell you how cool that was??? Just me and my laptop...piece of cake!!!

Enjoy your fall everyone...I will post more layouts and more fun classes and stuff soon. I have a bunch of ideas for holiday classes to teach on My Creative Classroom and at Memory Lane!
