Marconi Beach and Hiking in the Great Outdoors {digital scrapbook layouts}

Since all of my crafting supplies are packed up, I have been relaying on digital products from to satiate my scrapbooking appetite.  Since I am so new to purely digital scrapbooking, I recently completed this AWESOME class by Jessica Sprague: "Up and Running with Photoshop: Beginning Digital Scrapbooking."

The class is the perfect beginner's primer on how to use Photoshop to create amazing scrapbook pages (just like the real paper ones I love so much without the mess to clean up afterwards).  The class is self-paced so you can take it when your schedules allows for it.  It also comes with some great free digital kits and templates to use over and over again.  If anything, it provides you with a toolbox of skills to fully master and manipulate Photoshop to retell the stories and memories you want to cherish for years to come.

Using the tricks and skills I learned from this class along with some amazing templates and digital products from the Queen of Quirk, here are two of my first digital layouts highlighting a recent trip we took to Cape Cod.  

1.  Marconi Beach {a digital scrapbook layout}.  We took a brief stop by Marconi Beach for Charlotte to build some sand castles.  I swear, that girl could sit on the beach for HOURS just playing in the sand.

2.  Hiking in the Great Outdoors {a digital scrapbooking layout}.  I love being outdoors and walking in the woods.  Watching Justin point out the different animals and plants especially warms my heart.  She is 100% a daddy's girl.

I'm so excited to see how much I can grow as a digital and hybrid scrapper during my term as a Creative Team member!  As always, thanks so much for stopping by!
