Good Eats

Some people keep food journals for weight loss or health reasons, but that doesn't have to be the only reason. I journal about food because I love to go to new places and try new things.  Below is a layout using a new digital design kit for food journaling called Good Eats.

More about Philippe's
While we were in LA to visit friends, we met my brother in law, at a place a round the corner from his house called Philippe's. This place is home to the "French Dipped Sandwich". This location we visited is one of the oldest resteraunts in Southern California and we saw a great mix of old guy regulars, hipsters and tourists. It was established in 1908 but it wasn't til about ten years later that the "French Dipped Sandwich" was created. The owner Philippe Mathieu, while making a sandwich dropped  it accidently into a roasting pan filled with juice still hot from the oven. The patron, said he would go ahead and take the sandwich anyway and came back the next day with some friends asking for more of those dipped sandwiches. That is how they claim it happened, and I am sure glad it did. Well worth the visit!

The full Good Eats digital scrapbook kit will be available for download soon so check back for details.

Sample Layout with the Design Lass Happiness Kit

This layout features a few pictures from our visit to Austin, TX when we went to South By Southwest this year. I may have a diffrent layout idea when I get all the pictures from the trip from my husband's hardrive. But in the meantime thought these pics were fun place holders to try a layout with the new kit.

Preview of whats to come

Digital Scrapbook Kits Coming Soon

So I have had an interest in going digital in my memory keeping, for a while. Recently I got going on it and discovered a whole lot of designers doing very inspiring layouts. I also have had friends ask me to share my design talents and teach them some secrets. So I will be teaching 3 classes in June on how to get started with digital scrapbooking. As I finish up writing content for those classes I will share some tips here as well. Very soon, I will be sharing some digital scrapbook kits for free, so check back soon if you are interested. For now here is a sneak peak of a kit I designed that was auctioned off for the HART Gala. Congrats to Jane Thorpe for winning it.
