Father's Day Digital Card

This is the front of the card I made for my dad for Father's Day. It's a modified version of a layout I made recently featuring my dad and me and using one of my Father's Day digital photo masks (which you can still get, free, right here at the Webajeb blog). The black-and-white photo is from 1969. I modified the mask by simply changing the landscape-oriented rectangle to a one in portrait format. I popped in a piece of digital paper by Vinnie Pearce, which I also modified a bit in order to fit the square paper onto the rectangle-shaped card without losing much of the fun pattern in the opposing corners.

I really like how it turned out, and my dad was very pleased when it arrived in the mail. I'm going to print a copy for myself and frame it.

Just another reason why I love digital scrapbooking! I've sent off the card I made and my dad has it now. But I still have the digital file, and can print more copies, use it in a digital layout, change the background paper, if I want, add some fun digital elements, and even journaling. In fact, I think I'll do just that. Then I'll have the perfect layout of that day in 1969 to put into My Book of Me!

Now go and have a great day!

Emma's Bat Mitzvah

Emma, Bat Mitzvah

Ha ha, Michael hasn't changed a bit (see previous post).

He can make a nice face when he wants to! Michael, with Emma, at her bat mitzvah this past Saturday. We had a GREAT time! Beautiful ceremony - Emma did fantastic leading the service, singing her parts (in Hebrew!), and she looked sooooo grown-up!

Emma with her brothers, Michael and Rodrigo, sister, Maya, and Grandma DeZubiria.

Even more family! Aunts, uncles, cousins, sibs, parents, and grandparents.

Mazel tov, Emma!
