Welcome to Snappy Scrappy!

I started teaching a digital photograohy class at my local scrapbook store. We use Adobe Photoshop Elements 8 to alter/correct our photographs. This version of Elements is SUPER cool, and offers so many cool new tools that the previous versions never had...I love it!
Each student receieves a 1 page scrapbook layot to complete at home, and a tutorial DVD that covers everything I taught in class so they can watch it as many times as needed to review the techniques.
I am selling the tutorial DVD's through my blog for $15 each. If you would like more details about each session's DVD, please email me!

The Road HOME


I made this layout for my brother & sister-in-law. The picture is of their daughter Willow & her biological sister who is also soon to be adopted by them. I wanted to enphasize the journey the whole family has taken over the past few years to finally be able to call their house "HOME". I didn't realize the impact I had made, until I made my sister-in-law cry when she saw it...and many others on the CTMH bulletin boards! I hope everyone else loves it as much as we do!

I used the Simple Pleasures Level 2 paper pack & stickease, Just Blooms flowers, Cocoa ink, pewter brads & photo hindges, and Liquid glass.
