Fun Photo App ...

I have this app on my phone called PhotoGrid. I got it originally to make photo collages. Just yesterday I realized it has the ability to make scrapbook-like pages. It features all sorts of backgrounds, borders, frames, stickers, and more. I made a few samples really quick, and then I realized I might be able to use them for our school yearbooks. I take a lot of school-related pictures on my phone, so if I can mess around with them there and just add them to my program later, that will save me a lot of time. How cool is that?!

The other day Rick and I went for a walk at Wayfarers Park, which is next to Flathead Lake. It's only about 3 miles from my house, so we walk on the trail there quite often. These are the pictures I decided to play around with on PhotoGrid. I also made a quick one of Denny below.

My HP laptop is getting ready to die, so I'll be switching to the other one we have soon. I'm not looking forward to that. Not only does it have a different type of operating system, but I won't be able to use my In-Design program on the other laptop. That's what I use to make the yearbooks for school, along with all other other things like our weekly schedules, attendance sheets, school forms, etc. I'm going to have to make them on Word or something that the new laptop supports. That's a major "Ugh!" for me.

So, if I can use some of my phone photos on PhotoGrid and insert them that way, it will save me some time. Yay! Funny thing is that I have a whole drawer of scrapbooking materials. I thought it would be a fun hobby, but I just never made the time for it. I seem to do stuff like that digitally more often. Hopefully, this will help me add some fun photos to our yearbooks and such.

  1. Wow! Look at that scenery! You live in one bee-utiful place! I'm like the guy on Hunt for Red October . . . "I should like to see Montana." Or something like that--it's been a while. Thanks for sharing. :)
