Digital Scrapbooking Favorites

Do you enjoy digital scrapbooking? Or maybe making cards or online photo books? Or playing around in photo editing programs like Photoshop with different elements and designs?

I have always loved traditional scrapbooking, but as the years have gone on, I have found that I enjoy digital scrapbooking much more. It is cheaper, there is NO mess to clean up (or layouts your kids will mess up!), and you can get a TON of stuff for FREE! Seriously.

If you haven't checked it out already, read Heidi's Digital Scrapbooking on the Cheap series here on PYP. She walks you through some of the basics and has good tips.

Today I wanted to share some of my personal favorite places to get digital freebies. Now, keep in mind you need a photo editing program. I have Photoshop Elements 8, but other programs like Picasa will work great too!
