Taking Time

I've been missing my digital scrapbooking. In recent weeks I've taken time for some more tutorials, but otherwise, have pretty much left it alone since entering the busy holiday season the beginning of December. And I need to get back to it - a hobby, something that I really enjoy doing. 

Continuing on with recording our unforgettable trip to Italy for our 40th Anniversary this last September - and also where we met up with our youngest son who was traveling through Europe for a few months! Venice was our first of four destinations in Italy; such an amazing place. Even looking at these photos, I can hardly believe that we actually were there. It's like a dream. The photos on this spread were taken at one of the most picturesque spots, and I wanted to make the photos quite large to try to capture the beauty.

Hoping to take time each week for digital scrapbooking - and maybe posting the pages here will be a fun incentive for me to take time for this hobby that gives me a lot of joy.

  1. Beautiful pages - I would love to go there someday. I haven't tried digital scrap-booking yet, maybe soon.

  2. Venice is certainly beautiful I was there in 1978!!! and can still remember how in awe I was! I'm going to try digital scrapbooking too, as I won a My Memories digital program. Hopefully I'll be able to do more layouts than I've done the past year! Patsy from

  5. Oh wow... your pages are gorgeous! These photos are gorgeous! I am so happy that you shared them with us. I feel like I have visited Italy today! :)

  6. Love your digital scrap-booking. I'm not sure I've heard of it before. This bridge scene is so unique...I love Europe because everything is so old compared to the U.S.
    I've only been to Rome,but I know Italy is a beautiful country. So glad you had this opportunity.
