My name is Shannon "Dabling" hence the title :) I am a mother of 3, stay at home mom, Creative Memories Consultant, and photographer. I have been a consultant twice so far, and have had my home photography studio for 7 years.

My goal for the year 2010 is to "Focus on Photos" and my mission is to help others with the same goal.

I love what I do and have met the most wonderful people through both of my business's. I hope that I can continue helping others.

Tuesday:Tech Tips "FREE Storybook Creator 2"

Before there was Storybook Creator Plus, there was Storybook Creator 2. Its a Free Download software that Storybook Creator Plus was based off of. If you are not ready to purchase the "Plus" you will want to download this software and try it out. Click on the above link to get to the download page

It has so many options for creating digital scrapbook pages using their templates. You can create beautiful pages by dragging and dropping photos and journaling into the pre-set templates. There is over 40 different themes to choose from. And if you want more you can purchase fixed templates. Now available is the Gazebo and Everyday themes for $7.95 ea.

It is a great option for those quick project albums and for those that don't feel that they are creative enough to design from scratch. But as a side note, if you upgrade to the Creator Plus version you can also use the templates and you will have the freedom to move, re-size, rotate, or delete any design element in each template.

Its a great option for going digital. And its FREE so download away!
