I belong to a group of friends who enjoy Digital Scrap booking. It's like regular scrap booking, except it is all done digitally. All the supplies are kept filed in the computer, and the work is done in Photoshop Elements. That is where the challenge lies for me, learning Photoshop. I have 4.0 and 6.0 and I am the least experienced of our group.
One important aspect of digital scrap booking, is the taking of photographs. That is the fun part for me. I LOVE taking photos. Usually, the first day we are together, we go somewhere and take pictures and then the remainder of the weekend, we create digital pages with those photos.
We started the group July, 2008 and have had four different weekends, all here in Nevada, with the last one in California. Our first weekend (summer) and the second to the last in March (spring), we went to the Bellagio Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. Every Holiday, Chinese New Year, spring, summer and fall, over 140 expert horticulturists arrange gazebos, bridges, ponds, water features with fresh flowers and plants displayed with creativity and theatrical impact. Absolutely wonderful in sight and smell. and if you are in town, do not miss it!
Also, at the Bellagio are the Fountains of Bellagio. Check them out on line. Totally spectacular the way the music corresponds with the movements of the water, dancing on the water to the rhythm of the music.
I really liked this photo I took of the sky light ceiling of the Conservatory...
Daffodils and California Poppies, for me, are the happiest of flowers and make me smile every time I gaze upon them.
I would like to persuade a couple of my girlfriends, and my sister, who are so talented, to do a blog, showcasing their work. Not only are they gifted photographers, but their pages capture the most precious and memorable moments.
They do the 12 x 12 size pages, where I think I prefer to do a book with 8 x 11 sized pages.
On this beautiful summer's day in July, we were blessed with the most incredible rainbow over the Bellagio fountains. These next two photos, show before the water fountains began and then after the music started, and the rainbow appeared...
Guess that is all for now... My stomach is telling me it is time to eat...
