Computer Scrapbooking


Lately I haven't been doing my scrapbooking or computer scrapbooking and tonight realised I miss it. I suppose I have been concentrating so much on my blog and weight loss that I have given up documenting my family.

So I thought I would put my little darlings on here for you to have a look.

I really enjoy making scrapbook pages on the computer it is so much less expensive but rewarding as I can make anything as long as I try.

I love this one it is just so simple but it shows how much my two boys love each other.




I have been a little hesitant to put pictures of my boys up on line but decided if anyone I know sees my blog then they have to take whatever I say in this as my view only and if they don't like it then they can go and read something else.

I have been asleep most of the day and it still doesn't feel like it has made much difference. My head is full of cold and my eyes can't stop watering. I just want to feel better and get back to the gym. I have missed the gym like crazy in the last week. Once is just not enough that is for sure! I want to get back into shape and stop procrastinating. I have been so bad in the last 2 weeks and I want to get back to it but I am also liking being free to eat what I like as well. I will get back to it as I keep reading everyones blogs so that I get my A into G.

I am so pleased with Blogspot you wouldn't believe. It is so much nicer to see the comments with the daily entries and that I can go back on them and read what people have suggested. I should have done it a long time ago.

I feel so guilty that I didn't go to work today. I am not feeling well but I have only been at the new job for 3 weeks and taking a day off already. I phoned my boss at 7am this morning and she said "OMG I didn't even recognise your voice, you get back into bed right now" Wow that was a nice way to say it. I thought she would be upset or something. But she wasn't. I will be back on board tomorrow even though I know I will not be 100%.

Oh well I am going to have dinner now yummmmy hubby cooking a really nice dinner. Lets hope I can taste it he he he he

Good night everyone.

Sorry to hear that you are still not well - I know what you mean about having a sick day when you haven't been there that long but at the end of the day, you are better off getting better before going back so that you don't infect everyone else ! Take care and get back on track when you can. I think that the scrap booking idea is great - what a wonderful way to treasure your memories. I wish I knew more about it and had more time to do it - oh well, one day !!!!
Look after yourself and hope you can taste the wonderful dinner hubby made !

Wow you are a clever chikkie. I so want to get into scrapbooking but have held off because of the cost. Once I start I have so many projects lined up to do. But I never thought about doing it on the PC before. You have beautiful boys. :)

Those scrapbooking pages are gorgeous CM. And go back to the gym once you're over this cold, you'll feel so much better for it!

Queen said...

Your boys are beautiful and you did such a wonderful job showcasing them! Being sick totally sucks. I'm hoping you feel better soon. Also, thanks for stopping by to visit and letting me know your thoughts. They are always welcome!! ;)

Hey love the scrapbook... And you just relax and get better soon. I know heaps of people who are sick with this bug, and then they go back to work to early and are back home sick a week later. So try and get rid of it properly.....

Take care and have a great weekend Jaxx :)

Those pages are fantastic! Hope you are soon better.

Glenys said...

What beautiful boys you have. Your scrapbooking is great. Sounds like you have a lovely boss and they know when you are truly sick especially when you ring in yourself. My DH is not very good in the kitchen but I am glad summer is coming as he helps by doing BBQ's.
BFN.

That computer scrapbooking looks amazing. Can you suggest where to get the program from. I hope you are feeling better soon. I know what you mean about taking the time off work. I've been here for 11 years and still feel guilty for taking time off work LOL!!! Some of us are just more dedicated and reliable than others. XXX

Helena said...

Leighanne said...

I am into scapping too, but have never tried it on the computer - how does that work?

Emily said...

What do other people do about all these SPAM comments from anonymous readers??? I have had a couple too, but think I will just delete them as they're clearly automated ones, and may contain viruses?

Natural Jules said...

Slim Suzy said...

Since you posted about computer scrapbooking it looks like such fun.I have been trying to find some info. Could you list some good sites for beginners info for me if you have time. Thanks. (Just click on the little rubbish bin at the bottom of the posts to delete those nuisance ones).
