As Ever,

Rainy Day Sunshine

We are receiving more than our share of moisture in the mid-West; rivers and streams have overflowed their banks.  Many families are faced with the obstacles of altered travel, wet basements, and clean-up.  But the storms subsided long enough for an excursion to a nearby county fair (and music concert), and the weather is supposed to co-operate with our mid-day family reunion.

Sunshine is defined as “the light of the sun; the direct rays of the sun; a source of cheer or happiness.”    Activities shared with family bring their own special flavor of sunshine into my life and into my photo albums. So, that’s the theme for my July photobook, what’s yours?

Scrapbooking digitally allows you the freedom to add journaling to photos of special moments, add matching papers and elements to enhance your pages, and once completed you can create extra copies.  Planning is an important step when creating exactly what you want in a photobook. Begin with decisions on the theme of your book, then organize your photos and make choices on colors and fonts that will complement your pages.

My pick for layout of the day is I Love Summer with journaling to preserve the memory.


MyPicTales has a (NEW!) program that walks you through creation of your book or album, page-by-page.  When you open the Taleweaver software, you’ll be given options for page layouts — and a help section when you have questions.  Check out the “how it works” link to get started!
