The girls had a Girl Scout event on Saturday and SuperMan was busy with yard work.  What’s a girl to do when she has a few hours on her hands and no pressing chores?

Scrapbook!

Exactly!

I had purchased the Jessica Sprague intro to Photoshop class a long time ago and had never sat down to actually take the class. So, Saturday was the day. I had peace and quiet, no interruptions, and some recent pictures to use. I was ready.

Before I share the layouts I made, I have to tell you – if you are considering doing any digi-scrapping and have been intimidated by the sheer power of Photoshop, you are not alone. I have resisted using it for a long time because it just seemed overwhelming to learn.  As a matter of fact, I owned it but never used it.

Which, I decided, was really silly. 

So, that’s why I purchased Jessica’s class. And it is a great class. I would highly recommend it to anyone.  I love the clear and easy descriptions of what to do, how to do it, and the great supplies she includes in her course materials.  So, even if you don’t have any digital supplies yet, you can still complete your first pages as part of the class.

Here are some of the pages I’ve made so far. I’m about halfway through the class.

This was my very first layout:

I still need to go back and add some journaling. BeautifulYouQuickAnd this was my Lesson 2 layout. FishI still haven’t figured out how I am going to do 2-page layouts, but I am sure I can do it. I just don’t know how yet! But that is important to me because I do most of my scrapbooking in 2-page layouts. Like this “Fish” page is just begging for a sister page with the rest of the photos and story. 

Ok, more to come. I am on a roll.
