Daughter-Two was the busiest toddler, and always creating. When these photos were taken she had insisted on a fingerpainted masterpiece while I cooked dinner. They were taken in our old house before the big renovations.
And here they are scrapped, using the Dovely Kit:
Or you can make it your own with the layered template, in store at Designer Digitals from Oct 3:
And here's how I used it to scrap my great-grandmother hard at work in the garden which had fed the family right through the war. It was a suburban home but they had geese, pigs, chickens and a huge vege patch.

How to use a digital scrapbooking template? Follow the simple instructions included with all my templates and prepare to be hooked....
A digital scrapbooking template is like a sketch but much more versatile and useful. You "clip" your photos and papers to the various layers - but you can also move them about however you like, resize photos to fit your own shots and add or delete anything you like.
Once you have done it once you'll realise how simple it is. Just make sure the photo or paper you want to use is above the right layer in the template before you "clip" it to it.
What I love about it is how different the layouts by different scrapbookers look, even when they are using the same template.
Here's what happened when I and some of the Designer Digital team used Scrap Express 194:
In time for the sale at Designer Digitals, a new digital scrapbooking kit in black and tan with a splash of aqua.
I combined them with the "Worn Tops to Go: Wooden" (which are arriving in store tomorrow, also in time for the sale) to scrap Daughter-Two and me posing at the beach in Melbourne (one of us a little more enthusiastically than the other!)
When Daughter-Two was a toddler she would sometimes slip into her sister's room. On this day she found an old backpack of her sister's and filled it with pens and other bits and pieces, then started drumming on a tin and told me she was "drumming like Dora the Explorer".
Here's how I scrapped it (using Scrap Express 193 template)
In the Northern hemisphere at least it's a time of new beginnings. And here in the Southern hemisphere as well, because even though our school year is drawing to a close rather than beginning, it's the start of Spring.
Whether it's scrapbooking the start of school, another new beginning or just photos that call for a pretty, slightly vintage, digital scrapbooking kit there are plenty of papers and elements in the "Going to be Good" kit to fit:
