Springtime cutie- All things bright and beautiful.

When I saw Scrapbook artist software being demonstrated on tv I thought it looked great. The  lady who demonstrated it made it seem so easy to make layouts. Just the thing for me I thought, something easy to use. Well...........it is easy to click the buttions and do the bits that were shown but the rest of it is time consuming.
Creating your layout , finding the elements, changing the colours, putting each singular item onto the page and arranging it took me 3  hours. I took ellements from several different digital scrapbook kits to make my page and changed the colours via the colour pallette in the software. I must say though, that when it was finished it was a work of art (as I see it anyway) .I  was so engrossed in it and I love it. Obviously the fewer items you use will make it a lot quicker to make. I have called my page"All things bright and beautiful".
This is one of my new year resolutions that I have made an effort to keep and I am sure I will continue to make lovely pages with the help of photographs of my beautiful grandaughter.
I made my page with a Springtime look as there were quite a few challenges with that theme this week.

Here is the list:of challenges I have entered.. Yes, I know it is a lot but I can never choose which ones NOT to enter.
