Day 24 - Something I've Learned

I've learned the art of digital scrapbooking. I would even like to say that I'm good at it, though I think I'm still finding my style, as I like to try different things. I think that's validated by having been asked to be on the design team for I picked up many scrapbook things over the years, but never really did anything with it, and then discovered digital. I fell in love. It's a great creative outlet, and also a way to preserve memories.

You can see a progression of my abilities, with some before and afters.

Digital Scrapbooking

THEN: This was done in June 2007, one of my first layouts (LOs) after I discovered this craft.
The Cat's Meow

NOW: This is one of my most recent LOs, and I chose the earlier one because it and this one have a similar subject matter -- my cats!
DigiScrap: My Lovebugs

Hybrid Crafts
(the use of digital and traditional scrapbooking items)

THEN: One of the first hybrid things I did, a birthday card.
Happy Birthday Card to Niece (Black, Cream and Pink) - Front

NOW: Apples and oranges from this and the "then" craft, but I'm now willing to step out of the box and do other things besides cards (which I still love to do).
Hybrid: Stripes Container

So, this is ONE thing I've learned out of the many, many, many things I've learned in my 35 years on this earth. How about you?
