 DIGITAL SUPPLIES: Bellissimo Paper Pack, Weathered Neutrals Paperie, template by Ali Edwards, Courier font

My creative friend an fellow designer Ali Edwards is releasing a new template this weekend over at Designer Digitals, inspired by a recent post from her blog. While Ali did a page that captured her life in the moment, I decided to use Ali's template to capture a slice from the life of One-Three.

And lucky me, I just happened to have a few fresh shots of her ready to be scrapbooked.

I gotta tell ya, this digital thing? Pretty stinkin' cool. I played with this layout for an hour yesterday, swapping out colors and papers. Yet the overall simplicity of the design and concept speaks to me.

Thanks for the coolness, Ali. This, much like Aidan's new hair, rocks.

Look for Ali's template this Saturday at Designer Digitals.

    I cannot believe just HOW MUCH she looks like you! Such an amazing resemblance. And reading your list of 10 things right now, well, she is also very much like you in so many other areas as well! I think it is fair to say, like Mother like Daughter! 😀

    Awesome haircut, beautiful layout. May I ask if you use photoshop or indesign to make your digital pages?

    Cathy, here’s the power of today’s post; for a minute it completely erased my anxiety/obsessive thoughts (i.e. I have to organize all my old photos, create a system, get much better at photoshop, solve all the problems of my memory keeping universe…..) and made me want to sit down and make that layout for all my family members right now. You distill it down to what is IMPORTANT. You’re so good at that.

    On that little picture in the corner, she looks so much alike you. Look at that smile, it reminds me of yours on a couple of pictures of yourself you have used. And btw, great hair cut…..I have to get mine done too, I can’t stand it! Thanks for sharing.

    Awesome cut on your girlie girl. Noticed that she is now wearing make-up…growing up way to fast but a beauty in the making nonetheless.

    Your layout rock too!

    Well, in the past, i always used InDesign, but honestly? Since i’ve been teaching my classes, i’ve been using PS a lot more and now i finally get why digi scrappers love it for this.

    Hi Cathy; I love this idea! I stopped journaling for my ME album (I’m in the class) to write this list for each of my kids. Already wrote out one for my little guy. Thanks for such a great idea!!

    Cool layout! the digital frame around the picture?? did you create that – if so how? or where did you buy it. can’t wait for this new layout – ali rocks too!

    Very cool layout. One-Three is looking very cool these days – I’d say it was a tie in who rocked the short hair…

    Isn’t digi fun? I don’t quite get the angst between paper and digi. I’m not giving up my paper supplies, I just added a few new tools to my scrapping arsenal.

    What a difference a haircut makes. She looks just like you, I thought that may have been a photo of you at her age. Great idea.
