newbie (I brought samples!)

Hello ladies. I posted some pages on my birthboard and was invited to come over here by captain'swife. My name is Joan, my DS was born June 5th. Here's some pages I made as a gift for DH. Enjoy!

BTW, I know this is going to sound crazy, but I did these pages in PowerPoint. I don't really have time for cutting and pasting and I already have powerpoint and I'm really handy in it so ...

Wow!! Those are great. I like the one with the many pics on it the best. What a cute little chunky monkey Carson is. Lol

Welcome BTW!! I didn't realize you could do that with Powerpoint. Very cool!!

Thanks ladies. You can do just about anything in powerpoint if you are creative. I have to confess, the page with the multiple pics ... I stole the idea from another page I saw that was similar ... not the same, but similar. I liked it so much, I wanted to do one like it for my book. The other ones I designed myself.

Many of us do digital scrapping, but you are the first one to use power point Lol

You pages are fantastic. I love the blocks on that last page, where did those come from?

Welcome! Those are great pages!

I have to admit I don't think I've ever seen pages as good as that come out of powerpoint. I'm also a digi-scrapper over here (I used to paper scrap but didn't have time for the 'mess' anymore either). Glad to have you here, can't wait to see more of your work!

I made them! They have the 3-D shape in PPT and I drew in the letters and lines. I tried to put letters all the way around, but couldn't accomplish it. I was being a little too ambitious!
