    I have been scrapbooking our history and adding info about the planning, the trip to see the resort, the invites etc, and I came up with the idea to scrap the guestbook pages, this seemed like a fabulous idea until I realized what a time consuming project this was going to be, so I took some time and figured out how to make a digital scrapbook page, I used a program called printmaster mostly because it was cheap and seemed to have the most options, its not exactly user friendly, but I managed to get around it fairly well.  It is a broderbund program if you are interested.  Anyway I have the first of 40 layouts I will be doing and thought I would share the idea, it seemed to work fairly well and i am excited about how it will fit in with the scrapbook I am doing for the whole experience

      Very cool!! I have also been looking for something unique and different for my guest book. I think i may end up using shutterfly.

        I picked up printmaster a few months back at the beginning of my planning process because I thought it would help with all my design projects, I found it REALLY tough to navigate, you weren't able to do everything I expect and it was a SLOW program!  I am glad to see you were able to get it to work for you!

              Oh I made up new swear words in the process, and it is really hard to figure out, once I had the basic idea though things started flying, I have to produce 40 of these so I am glad the pace picked up.  It is also persnickity with the printer, but happy they look as good as they do
