Looking Forward to...

 Time for a new challenge at Paper a la Mode over at The Outlawz and the theme is Looking Forward to...!  

I designed another scrapbook page using fun papers and elements from our sponsor Kate Hadfield!  For a list of the different pieces I used, please see the material list!

I don't have any fancy equipment or programs for digital creating; I simply used my notes program free with my Mac.  I'm sure those who have and are familiar with "photoshop" type programs could really do spectacular creations with these fun papers and extras!  But I was out to prove you can have fun and come up with something special on a free program with very little computer creating knowledge as well!

If you are interested in dabbling, as I am, go for it!  It's very fun and not difficult!  ...and hey, it doesn't get glue, sparkles, and ink everywhere!   hahaha

To get the Doodle Den Freebies, you simply become a Newsletter subscriber and you will get a password to get lots of fun downloads!  It's at the bottom of her home page HERE.

While you are there, check out all the ideas for teachers, card makers (hybrid creations), clipart, scrapbooking, journals, etc!  Lots to see at her site!
