Well, today's the day...

Today's the day that I finally "reveal" my blog to the world. :) I never thought I would want to do a blog, but here I am. I finally caved. Although I'm going to tell you right up front, you won't find much personal stuff here. This is primarily going to be a place for me to share some digi freebies that I create. I’m not sure how often I will be posting freebies…I’d like to post at least once a week. But knowing how life can go, it may only be a couple times a month. So be sure to go over and subscribe to my blog. That way you’ll never miss a freebie, and you won’t have to keep coming back here wondering, “When is she ever going to get around to posting a new freebie?!” And hey, go ahead and grab the blinkie I made, too, while you’re at it. :)

I started digi scrapping in June 2007. Didn't mean to do it...we only got PSE 5 because it came bundled with Adobe Premiere Elements for doing video stuff. So I started playing around with PSE. Googling for tutorials led me to Designer Digitals where I found Jessica Sprague's First Layout Tutorial for Photoshop Elements, and I was able to create my first digi layout! Then I discovered Jessica's web site, and life hasn't been the same since! I took her Up & Running with PSE class in August 2007, Now We're Rockin' with PSE class in October 2007, and now I'm anxiously waiting for next week to get here so I can start her Digi: In Deep class on Monday!

So in honor of my blog's "Grand Opening" I have three free templates to share with you. (Some of my friends from over at the Jessica Sprague message board have already seen the first two.) And yes, these are pretty simple, straightforward templates. There’s plenty of room to add to them and embellish to your heart’s delight. But the way I figure, if a template saves me even 5-10 minutes, that’s 5-10 minutes more for me to spend scrapping! :) So grab ‘em if you’d like. If you do use them, I’d love to see any layouts you make with them. Link me up to where you have your layout(s) posted! Who knows, maybe I’ll post a few reader layouts here on my blog.

You’ll notice that although there are three templates today, there are six previews (two versions for each template). That’s because I can’t decide which preview I like the best. So take a look…do you like Preview 1 (on the left) or Preview 2 (on the right) the best? Be sure to post a comment and let me know. I’m going to tally the votes to help me decide which way to do my previews in the future.

Thanks for dropping by my blog! I hope you’ll stop back sometime.
