Digital Scrapbooking: The basic approach

Scrapbooking has been a hobby of mine for many years now.  While I don't think you can ever catch up on all of the photos you want to 'scrap', there is a way to get the job done a little quicker and without much effort or knowledge on your part.  If you have adobe or other photo editing software that can read .PSD files, then you are good to go.  Grab yourself some photos and load them into your program.  I chose this one plus a few others:
This is me and my hubby last halloween at our church trunk or treat festival.  I was trying to get a scrapbook made for our church with everyone's photos so I turned to my favorite digi-scrap website, scrapbook graphics, for some pre-made 'quick pages' to get the process done in a timely manner. You can buy a kit of about 9 pages for $5 give or take, depending on how many pages are included.  Once you download your 'kit' and load it into your scrapbooking program, its just a matter of plugging your photos into the blank areas, flattening and saving the image, and printing.  The final result of this picture came out like this:

Total time:  15 minutes!
You really CAN do this!
