So any of you digiscrappers used your skillz with your child for school?  Andy, my oldest, had a report to do about a President.  He chose George Washington.  After he wrote the report, he decided to do a poster for it.  I remembered that we took a trip to Mount Vernon 2 years ago – and of course our photos are all digital these days.  I asked Andy if he’d like to make the poster using our pictures from Mount Vernon – and we could just print it like a large picture.  So we did!  It was pretty easy to do – nothing elaborate.  He chose all the papers and alphas, etc that we used – I just did the photoshop assembly for him.  Then we had it printed as a 12×18 photo at Costco for $2.99.  Cool, huh?  His teacher loved it, it  looks really cool, we kept a copy for his school bin, and in a way – we scrapped the photos at the same time!

So here’s a copy of what we made.  And I just showed him some papers I thought might work, he told me what he wanted to use and we went from there.  Same with the alphas, etc.  I tried to let him do as much as he possibly could so it was still his project.  And he sat with me while I *assembled* it in photoshop.

Anyway – I was happy with my first attempt to use digital scrapbooking for something besides a scrapbook!  Sorry my posts have been so infrequent – I’ve been at school everyday doing inventory in the library – fun times!
