Kindergarten Girl

I have recently started to dabble in digital scrapbooking.  I know, I know. . .where have I been, right?  I have to admit, I still like the feel of a real scrapbook page, but in my quest to learn more about Photoshop, I've been taking an online class at reneepearson.com called Just the Basics.  I LOVE it!  At first it started out with some Quick Pages. . .basically the page is already designed for you and you just insert a photo.  This is my first page that I put it in all of the papers, pictures and elements myself.  The kit that came with this class had some Jen Caputo digital layouts (which this is one) along with a Page Kit designed by Tiff Tillman which has all the papers and elements that you can add to your layout.  I have really enjoyed learning to use Photoshop in this way.  Eventually I will learn how to create the layout too, but for now, this is great for me. 

I made this page of Savannah.  The focal picture is of her and her kindergarten teacher.  The three little photos are of her on her first day of kindergarten.  She was so nervous about having a new teacher because she just LOVED her preschool teacher and just couldn't imagine liking another teacher.  LOL  Needless to say, she LOVES Miss Mackey and can't imagine school without her!  

I thought I'd share my excitement over learning how to put a page together in Photoshop!  Thanks for stopping by!  SUPPLIES USED:  Studio Jen Sketch Collection 22 (Jen Caputo), Sunlights Delight Apprentice Page Kit (Tiff Tillman, Little Dreamer Designs);  Finished page measures 12" square

I so want to try it too but it kind of scares me! I mean I haven't done a page for Joely since she was 6 years old and she turned 13 yesterday. Is it a lot easier?
