Updates to my Blog...

I know, I'm a bad blogger...although I've seen worse, it has been a while! LOL. So, anywho, I've been updating my blog. Pretty, huh? I am so in love with this Dreamsicle kit, I used it for my family reunion invites and now for my blog page. I love the colors! There are so many fabulous designers out there! I hope to be one of them one day. Although I'm a newbie, I have BIG dreams! Haha! So, I'm gonna broaden my horizons a little and try my hand at designing. Mostly it will be a learning experience to sharpen my scrappin' skills. But be on the look out for some Freebies from me and of course I'll be sharing any info I've learned on my journey into this new world! LOL If I find more tuts, I'll be posting them also. Check out my sidebars for more links to scrap sites, tuts, and freebies. I'm also getting ready to go back to work in a few weeks so I won't have as much time to scrap. But thats alright, I need some adult time! LOL So as always, leave me a comment or hit me up on my Myspace!

Dreamsicle Page Kit Created by Rene' Bross©2007 Digital Scrapbook Place

These are the two invites I've been working on. The first is for my daughters birthday party, this kit really rocks! The party theme is "Pirates and Pixies" and is gonna be in pink and black with pirate treasures and fairy magic. LOL
The second invite is for our first family reunion. The pic in the middle is my great grandparents and on the left is her parents and the right, is his.
I hope the family like this cause I had fun making them.

Geneology sites and a Taylor Made tut...

Here is a new tutorial I found today. Its from Taylor Made Designs' blog, it is photo blending options in Photoshop. I've been trying to keep up with my blog but I've been busy with our family reunion stuff. I've been doing geneology research on my dad's side of the family and boy is it time consuming. I've found so much cool stuff though. The oldest pic I have is from 1904. I've learned so many things about my family and my ancesters. Here are some sites that have really helped me:


My Family

State Archives


Cousin Connect

Family Reunion

Geneology Trails

These are a few that really helped me. There are subscriptions to a few, but usually you can find most things through the state archives on different sites. Well, good luck with your searches! I'm gonna try and find some time to do some more LO, there is an Easter LO I've been trying to finish, so hopefully I'll be posting again soon.
