Digital scrapbooking

As many of you know, I am a photographer. In years past I have neglected my family. I have only taken their photos when it was a holiday or their birthday. I feel really guilty that I don't have very many snapshots of them. The snapshots I do have are wasting space on my hard drive. I made a vow to free my hard drive. However, I had a dilemma. What do I do with all of the photos? If I back them up to CDs, I will most likely never look at them again. I have way too many to print. It would cost $4324569165 to have them printed and then I would have to take the time to put them in photo albums. YUCK! I recently discovered a problem for this dilemma.....digital scrapbooking!! There are many sites out there that sell digital scrapbooking elements. Fortunately for me, I enjoy designing graphics in Photoshop. For the things I don't have the ability to design I turn to a trusty newfound board -- Go Digital Scrapbooking I visit the forum frequently to get ideas. Some of the designers also offer freebies!!

I need to remind you that I am a newbie. So these pages aren't as good as many you will see on the afore mentioned site. ;)

What a great idea! I may have to look into that. Do you print them off or save them on a CD? I think yours look great!

Thanks! I do both actually. I create a book at snapfish.com. You can upload your pages and create a custom book in many different sizes. I think I'm going to get this in an 8X8 or 12X12. If you start digital scrapbooking we should share ideas!
