Just Add Scrapbooking Challenge #1

When I saw that Just Add Ink had started a new scrapbooking challenge I really, really, really wanted to play...but I have little in the way of scrapbooking supplies aboard Lucey Blue so rather sadly thought I'd miss the Just Add Scrapbooking Challenge #1. But this afternoon, as I was quietly crocheting in the cockpit (and the rest of the crew were either asleep or creating disastrous Lego landslides) I suddenly realised that I could probably digi-scrap a little offering, and I set about doing just that.

Now, please bear in mind that I have never digi-scrapped before, so this layout is rather basic (a FIRST in fact ;-)...but you have to start somewhere!
I have used Photoshop to create this layout. The beautiful digital papers are from the Jackie Digital Paper Pack by TracyAnnDigitalArt on Etsy. My ability to make shapes is very limited..hence you have round brads only. I could have made them square...but I saved that awesome trick for the next digi-layout I make...betcha can't wait ;-).

Have a great rest-of-the-week!

I think this counts as a double first then (link it up anyway and let the powers that be decide). You've done a fabulous job for your first attempt at digi scrapping - well done!

A great page Sam, and you did well with the digi page and on Lucey Blue too, I have yet to try it (should buy photoshop first ha ha ha ). Cute photos too of Thumper.
