A Digi Layout & A Poll

Hi there! Hope your Monday is good – mine came with sunshine and warm weather. I’m writing this while sitting outside as the afternoon sun sets, this is my favorite kind of Spring weather!

As my kid runs around, having fun playing with the neighboring kids, I have a couple of things to share:

First I wanted to tell you that The Daily Digi have another reveal today so I can finally show you one of the layouts I made for The April Digi FilesΒ  (sometimes it’s so hard to not share right away, but here is my last layout for this month – several more to come in May). I used alpha, elements and papers from Libby Pritchett Designs. You can learn more about The Digi Files and membership options here: The Digi Game (affiliate link).

I loved making this page and I love how it works just right, even though I didn’t use the traditional red, blue and white colors for our National Day Celebration (May 17th). I wanted to include so much more than just a report back from a great day celebrated with my kid, friends and family. I wanted to tell about the feeling of visiting my future work space before even sending in the application. It was a time in our life with big changes. Changes for good! It felt so great to capture all that on one digital scrapbook page. And that is a good example of why I really love scrapbooking. It’s not all about photos and great products; it gives me a way to capture the small (but of course highly important) every day events side by side with the big life changing happenings. I’ve been digital scrapbooking for the last 3 years and can’t imagine my life without it. There is always more stories to tell πŸ˜€

Secondly I wanted to tell you that I’m working on growing my blogging skills and have joined Shimelle’s class ‘Beyond Blogging for Scrapbookers‘, the class started today and I’ve done a few tweaks behind the scene already (following the prompt of the day).

Now I would like to invite you to take part of a poll, just for fun. I really want to learn more about my readers (and to figure out if there are any of you left out here after the silence of this blog from November to March. LOL. Ok, I know there is a few – thank you for hanging in there!). So here it goes:


The world has just too many countries for me to try and mention them all so I went with the continents, but I would love it if you dropped me a comment with a little bit more info about the place you are living and maybe even a little about the weather you’re having right now.

Thanks for playing with me!
I guess you’ll see more evidence from me taking Shimelle’s class these weeks.
Consider yourself warned πŸ˜‰

    Hi – popped over from class πŸ™‚ I live just off the coast of Britain.

    Looks good! I think that when, and if we are ever done with remodeling, I might try digi scrapbooking rather than the old fashioned kind! It looks like something I would enjoy!

    BTW–the instructions I had for making a little boy’s Norwegian folk costume now make sense thanks to the photo of your son’s vest:)

    To answer your question–I live in the Pacific Northwest region of the USA–and up till this week, our weather has been wet, wet, wet (even wetter than normal). Now we are experiencing some sunshine and I am LOVING it!! I also am loving the longer days–yea springtime!

    Lenten Blessings to you,
    Aimee

    Hi, just popping over from BBfS. I live in the Midlands, UK and we all seem to be having this glorious weather at the moment. I’ve done both digi and traditional scrapbooking but neither seem to be figuring much just lately. Oh, and I love your country, only been a couple of times but fell in love with it.

  15. Susie @ A Slice of my Life

    I agree, change IS good. Although that doesn’t mean that I don’t have temper tantrums every time I have to go through it!

    Welcome back to blogging…it seems as though a bunch of us are making our way back. πŸ™‚

    Thanks for visiting my blog! I love your digi page, I am a paper scrapper, and never tried digi. I live on the South coast of the UK and have just got back from a lovely walk along the beach!

    I didn’t add myself to the vote as I live in Canada and “America” to me means the US though that’s maybe not what you intended. You header looks great and you look like you’ve spent a lot of time organizing your blog.

  20. anneberit

    Just wanted to add another Thank You for your sweet comments.

    @ Colleen, I’m sorry you felt left out – but I meant America as the continent America, not the US specific.
