Digital Diva

Ok, so maybe I'm not quite a diva yet, but I've been playing around with my Christmas gift - Photoshop Elements. I've figured out a few things and thought I'd share what I've been able to create so far.
I sat through hours of a tutorial and was able to create this page of Parker...
It has many different effects (some I'm not sure if I can create again without using the tutorial)
Then I played around with colorizing the photo of Parker...
Turned out pretty cute if I do say so myself!
So then I was feeling brave and decided to tackle my blog background.
You can check out the "New Year" background and header for my personal blog here at Ginger's Jingle . (now I won't need to bug my sister every time I want to change it)

Last but not least I was feeling pretty secure in my abilities so I created an invitation for Parker's (and friends) upcoming Arrow of Light ceremony. I had 50 printed up as a 4x6 photo to give out to everyone involved in scouts (and some family)

Right now I'm working on a February background for my blog.
I can tell it's going to take ALOT of practice and patience to get this digital thing down, but I'm a willing pupil.
Don't get me wrong, I'm NOT going to give up my hand-crafted art of Scrapbooking. There's just something about the texture and dimention that makes me so happy.
However, Digital scrapping will find it's little place in my creativity nook!

OK, you're already better than me! Curses! J/J So cute! You'll find that the digi stuff is so helpful for the five million gazillion church things that need to be made. PTA stuff too!
