Genealogy Charts for Digi-Scrappers

I know I've really been slacking off on posting to this blog and I apologize for that. Unfortunately, the pace of my blogging won't be picking up any time soon either. I'm starting my summer writing project which means the time I would have spent posting blog articles will have to be channeled into time spent writing my family history (one branch of my family history that is!).

Before I completely refocus in another direction, I'd like to share one more digi-scrapping kit that will be appreciated by all my genealogy buddies. This kit is called Wyvern's Lineage Series and it's offered on the Wyverns Scrap Den blog by Susan. This kit consists of a series of beautiful genealogy charts designed in the standard 12"x12", 300 dpi format. The pastel colors have a nice vintage look to them and there are even a set of blank pastel pages to use with them for companion pages. They're just lovely! Take a look...

And here's a sample image that Susan created using these pages...
Susan has included a few coordinating elements and may have more to come in the future. I think these pages are absolutely fantastic and I want to send a note of thanks out to one of my favorite digi-scrap designers, Kyra, for letting me know about Susan's kit. THANK YOU, KYRA!
And a very special thank you goes out to Susan for creating and sharing her beautifully designed pages with us all! THANKS SUSAN! You can download Susan's Lineage kit here. Don't forget to let her know of your appreciation!

Now go get creative with your genealogy!

Digital Scrapbooking for Genealogists

For those of you who don't follow footnoteMaven's Shades of the Departed blog... I'd like to let you know that I have a guest post on Shades today. The article, Digital Scrapbooking for Genealogists, makes the case for why you should consider creating digital scrapbook pages to display your family history. If you get a chance, head on over and check it out. I hope you will enjoy it and maybe learn a thing or two.

And I'm hoping to see some of your creations on your blogs too!

Congrats to the Detroit Red Wings, 2008 Stanley Cup Champs!

The fireworks are going off and Mother Nature hasn't moved in with her version yet. Detroit is a happy town tonight! Congratulations to the Detroit Red Wings on being the 2008 Stanley Cup Champions!

I'm not a hockey fan but I am a hometown fan. I couldn't be more pleased that Detroit has something to celebrate. We've had our share of embarrassment and shame lately with our immoral hip hop mayor and his text message scandal. So it's nice to be able to pick our heads up and smile for one night anyway. YEAH RED WINGS!

I didn't use a kit to create this scrapbook page but I did use a template created by the very talented and generous Deltapdawn.
