To be perfectly honest, there were times when pushing to finish my first My Digital Studio project was not at all pleasant. I accidentally deleted a page — the most perfect page ever! — and didn’t realize it until I had saved the project. If I ever have the idea that I can whip together in just a few days a scrapbook for some event (DH’s big birthday next August?), someone slap me, please. I loved working with this program, but it’s hard for me to force creativity under pressure!
But nothing teaches you how to actually use something like actually doing it. And because I had imposed a deadline on myself, I was sitting in front of the computer too much. And getting grumpy. For me, a layout starts with a picture that tells a story. Before we totally switched to digital photography, and when we had a camera without a zoom, our photos were just ho-hum. Or worse. So I was looking through envelope after envelope of pictures. And some brought laughter and tears. That slowed me down!
Anyway, it’s done. And now I’m thinking of projects I can create — like something special for DH’s birthday! Here’s an idea: start now!
