I came to digital scrapbooking by way of Project Life, which I did in physical form for the first year and then tried out doing digitally, and became hooked for life on digital documenting. I made my first designs to share as contributions for Pixel Scrapper blog trains, and am now thrilled to have joined up as a member of the Pixel Scrapper design team! I create products for digital pocket scrapbooking and traditional scrapbooking, and want to support people however I can in creatively and easefully documenting their lives.

This was a disappointing layout to create. I picked up this template free somewhere a long time ago, and didn't realize until I'd placed all 17 of my photos that the shadow part of each polaroid frame layer was not a drop shadow but rather part of the layer. Which meant I couldn't clip a textured paper to them (they were flat, pure white). I tried about five different things before I finally figured out a workaround that worked, making what should have been a relatively simple layout into a time-consuming one. By the time I was done struggling with that part I had no energy left for ornamentation, so I kept things very simple.
It's actually quite fitting, though. My birthday is often difficult for me and this was a particularly lackluster night. So the fact that I feel annoyed and somewhat let down when I look at this layout is totally appropriate!
