Confession from a Cheater ~ Scrapblog

I have a confession to make. I am a cheater. I have received many compliments on the Scrapblog pictures I’ve been posting with my blog. While I’d like to take full credit for creating them, I cannot. I’m sure anyone who knows me very well realizes that something is amiss. See, I’m not creative. I don’t do any type of crafts or art. I understand that I’m pretty good with the written word, but alas that’s where my creativity draws the line. I’ve decided though, that this is too good to keep to myself. It’s time that I share.

So the question remains, how do I come up with these beautiful pictures? Well, I found a great website for this that has lots of templates and tons of click and drag elements to make things easy. You can add test boxes, “stickers”, backgrounds and your own pictures. Basically, it’s digital scrapbooking. The best part is that it’s incredibly easy to do. What is this fantastic website? It’s http://www.scrapblog.com/. So, if you’d like to try your hand at it, go for it! One thing though. I like to keep things simple, so for me it’s easiest to export the picture as a jpeg and download to my computer. But there’s lots of other options as well. Have fun and make lots of pretties!

I have all kinds of scrap book stuff and I have not organized the pictures to make the pages. One day I hope to accomplish this. I don't like my handwritting and because of this I have not worked on this much. Thanks for the tip...I may try this sometime.
Have a great week!
Blessings,
Darlene

Forgiven ;)
They're STILL beautiful! You have an eye for it anyway ;)

You still click and drag. That's creating as far as I'm concerned!
Yes, your great at communicating by written word, but scrapbooking the way you do it is ok. It looks pretty. I like it:)
