LOAD ~ Day 1

Today's prompt was for a food-related layout.  At first I was kinda stumped, but let that prompt drift from the top of my mind to that more useful subconscious area, and BAM...I've got my idea baby!

I decided to do a page of Avery's first cooking lesson with me...cinnamon popovers were the result.

Then I decided to do a DIGITAL page, using the Creative Memories Storybook Creator software.  I've had it for a long time, but don't really use it much.  Time to remedy that.

It all went well until I could not for the life of me figure out how to export the page, or save it as a .jpg, or share it on Facebook, or ANYTHING!  I ended up uploading it to the CM digital center, previewing the page, copying that imagine, and pasting it into Notepad.  I then saved that as a .jpg. and there you have it.  I was seriously about 2 minutes away from taking a photo of my computer screen and uploading that as proof that I actually did the Day 1 layout!

So, without further ado...my crappy .jpg of my pretty cool 12" x 12" page layout! ***EDIT...I called CM and the problem is FIXED...here's the GOOD image!


I'm going to call CM tomorrow and see if someone can help me figure out what I'm doing wrong or why the "share to Facebook" isn't working.  I'm happy with how it turned out.  I have had these digital products for a long time and don't use them.  I think I'm more likely to do a mixture of traditional pages and digital pages, and that's fine.  It's all about pages that are DONE, no matter how you got them done, right?

Now, I need to go to bed before the Day 2 prompt comes out and I end up scrapbooking when I should be sleeping!
