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!
