My first attempt at digital...

Well , I am a Traditional scrapper and never thought I would do anything digital. Seriously!

But when my husband's family went to Lincoln, Nebraska to be a part of their great great (great?) grandfather's, Charles E. Bessey, induction to the Nebraska Hall of Fame.

Charles E. Bessey is a huge deal in Nebraska.

So, I thought that making a scrapbook would make a great Christmas present.

But I am a really "bulky" scrapper and I figured this book should be more of a flat coffee table book. So, I thought, maybe I should do it digitally! And the fact I would have to make 3 albums made the decision easier. LOL

So, I started playing around with Creative Memories StoryBook Creator Plus. And within a 24 hour period, I created a book. Now, I do not think it should have taken me so long to do it, but I am not a manual reader. LOL

I used the Black and White Content Collection for the papers and all kinds of assorted Creative Memories "bling" for the accents.

I sent off for one book to be printed. I cannot wait to see it all together...

But I wanted to show you the pages I created....shhh it is a surprise for my MIL and SIL....

I am kinda proud of it.... :)

The first picture is of the cover. Charles E. Bessey was a botanist.
