Anyway where was I? I am very addicted to scrapbooking and anyone who knows me knows this. I've been doing it for like over 8 years now. Before the triplets were born I was basically almost all caught up. Now that they are here I continue to scrapbook but I have fallen way behind. The new cool thing in the scrapbooking industry is digital scrapbooking. In my search to learn how to do this I have found that some companies who sell digital scrapbooking software will allow you to download trial versions of their software for 30 days free. So off to adobe.com
I mainly do all my creative scrapbooking and card making at night after the triplets are asleep so 2 nights ago I downloaded adobe photoshop elements 4.0. Okay I know a bit about computers but it actually took me hours to download this program to get the trial version. Finally at 2 am with still no program I decided to go to sleep. When I awoke at 7:30 am I deleted what I had downloaded the night before and redownloaded it and guess what? It worked. Finally I have the trial version.
Of course, I have no idea how to work the program so while looking through the tutorials I found a tutorial for slideshows and since the triplets 2nd birthday party is on Sat I sat down and immedately got some photos uploaded from my apple computer to my dell laptop. I'm having a fun time doing their first year. My husband even went out and bought me a microphone so I can narriate some of my thoughts and poems to the slideshow and I found this amazing song that is perfect for their photos it is called Let them be little by Billy Dean.
Here is a list of songs great for slideshows that I have managed to compile. I will probably use some of these for their 2nd year slideshow. These are not in any particular order of which ones I like the best.
