Good morning!  We arrived back home safe and sound to find that it snowed 4" while we were away!  We literally left right before it started and came home 33 hours later to a blanket of snow!  Ah...I guess winter is officially upon us! :)  The visit was really nice, but way too short!  Have I mentioned how much I hate not having my kidd-o closer to home.  He will be home for the holidays though and I am looking very forward to that!

  Ok, so I have been resisting with every fiber of my being, fighting tooth and nail, totally putting off, and strongly avoiding (guess you get my point!) investing in Stampin Up!'s My Digital Studio since it came out!  I am an old dog and do not like change AND am computer challenged on a good day!  It just really didn't seem like a good match for me at all!  Well, when it went on sale recently I thought to myself, "Self, why not?!"  So I broke down and invested in it!  It arrived last night and I installed it all by my one-sie!!  (An amazing thing if you know anything at all about me!)  I got it all set up and played with it for just a few minutes and threw this together! This is a very basic project and could use some matting and the text needs to be tweaked to be bolder, however I am pretty darned pleased and excited by it!!   What a fun toy this is going to be!!!  What do you think about my very first 10 minute digital attempt:


   These are my boys 2 Christmas' ago!  These just happened to be in  the first random picture folder that popped up so I went with it!  I was able to add embellishments and stamps and text and choose the background paper!!  It was really a lot of fun!  I am normally a very hands on person!  I love to 'touch' the textures and 'feel' the colors and layers of everything, but this was so quick and easy!  I think I may just enjoy this after all!

   Hope that you have a wonderful day!  I have a very long list of to do's to try to get accomplished today so I am off!  I will be back soonest though with lots more to share!

Awesome job! I'm with you...it just seems like so much and I'm not that great on the computer either! But good for you!
