Shannon's new kits are perfect for Disneyland albums

Shannon of Scotty Girl Design has put together several fun kits for all the areas of Disneyland! I've been struggling, personally with scrapping our Disney vacations, because, um, I'm lazy, and that's a lot of photo editing, and secondly, it's hard for me to get That One Kit to cover the whole vacation, and keep the vibrant colors of the photos that is Disneyland. These are three of them, plus pages from our Disney visits.

Shannon also has several wonderful kits good for all the Disney getting ready, out at the park and other great shots I'm sure you have - Dreams Come True is the latest, and then there is the Walt's Park  and Started by a Mouse collections.

For more tips on putting together your album, check out this post.

    Excellent kits to keep in mind this weekend for iNSD... plus...

Happy iNSD shopping!

Happy iNSD! and it's started early!

ok, if you're like me, well, this time of year after the sun finally makes an appearance, life looks like this: baseball is going 5 days a week, Opening Day for the boating season, and the battle begins in earnest to achieve/maintain the reclaimation of the yard from moss, bugs, baseballs and weeds.

It's also iNSD - international Scrapbooking Day... and as it's well known we're all juggling, it's started early, so here we go!

Gushing About TRAD again...

Recently, I've begun to play more heavily in Lightroom, and if you haven't tried Totally Rad Lab's presets - just the combination of Amped and Smack my Pix up (one the the original presets) has saved fussy, picky me hours. HOURS. But lately I am just in love again with PicTapGo - TRAD's app for iOS. PicTapGo is feature friendly, and quick to use, full of great filters, and I can dump the photos into flickr, facebook or instagram, like that. To the left is a quick shot of my niece at Easter, straight out of my phone, and then with a few of the PicTapGo filters - and in seconds. Quick and simple. Not sure that Lightroom moblie is quite there yet.
