Well, at present time, I am about to quit using Google Chrome, which keeps crashing on me and is really getting on my nerves!  Would love to restart my computer about now, but am in the middle of too many things.  But enough of that…

I am Monday Hostess this week at DIGITAL DELIGHTS BLOG and I wanted to share a little bit about DIGITAL DELIGHTS and what I do as a DT member, etc.   I always enjoy being able to chat with you about DIGITAL DELIGHTS - one of my favorite blogs and shops!!  I have been on the DIGITAL DELIGHTS DT coming up on 2 years and I still haven't even scratched the surface of all the fabulous products and images Wendy has to offer at DIGITAL DELIGHTS SHOP.  There's always fun, new images, cut files, backgrounds, sentiments, etc. to try, so there is always something to look forward to while being part of DIGITAL DELIGHTS DT.    Also, we have a great group of ladies and I love being able to get to know them better.  I am also lucky enough to be part of the Senior DT, I do the BARGAIN FRIDAY posts and keep up with posting new events on our group pages at Papercraft Planet and The Crafter's Cafe.
One of my very favorite aspects of DIGITAL DELIGHTS SHOP images is that they come in JPG and PNG form and the PNG form can be easily combined using GIMP photo editing to nicely overlay the images.  Also, DIGITAL DELIGHTS SHOP has an awesome eBook which you can buy that tells you how to use all the many wonderful features GIMP has to offer (there's also an eBook available for those who use Adobe). 

So, for my project that I am sharing today, I took 2 images from the newest release at DIGITAL DELIGHTS SHOP - Hula Halina and thecoconut tree from the Luau accessories set and combined them into one scene using GIMP.  I then colored everything with Copics and Sakura glaze pen and cut out using Nellie's Multi-frame dies.  I decided to make a little vacation memories book using Making Memories tag shaped board book.  I affixed paper from the DIGITAL DELIGHTS SHOP Luau digi paper collection using my Xyron and then put the image on top.  I then added the sentiment, from the Luau sentiments set.  Sentiment is colored with Copics, daubed with Memento ink and cut with Nellie's die as well. 
I sure hope you like this, I had a lot of fun making it:)

This little book is just too darned cute Aud, and as always you´ve done an amazing job coloring it.
I wish I was as technical as you to use my computer more, but I´m not, and I can asure you, that Chrome isn´t my best friend either LOL. I never use any program to build up scenes, but do so by masking, that´s something I can find out about he he he.
