Wow, thanks for sharing all of the crazy 8's with us blog-friends!

I love the blog list on the sidebar. Didn't know you could do that until I saw yours. Managed to figure it out myself for ours. Curious if you had us listed anywhere as one of your China travel companions? I couldn't find it on the list.

Hope you are all enjoying this holiday season with AA.

Okay I tried!!!

Michelle said...

Thanks for the tag. It looks like fun. I'm not the best at getting these done, but I'll try...

I bet you are just going to have the best Christmas! Oh, isn't it great to live things all again through a child's eyes? And AA's first Christmas... HOW FUN!!

I hope you have a very, Merry Christmas!!

Love,
Michelle

p.s. Regarding your question, I use Serif PagePlus X2 for collages, which is the same software I use to digital scrapbook. There isn't a template, so I create my own. I like the flexibilty of doing the sizes I like and cropping how I want to.
