To show you how little the new computer is... Caitlin sat it on top of her laptop... when they say Inspiron MINI...they mean MINI! Designed with the child in mind...this is Dell's Nickelodon inspired laptop "Slimed", sold at Walmart. It was cheap and just enough to do with it what we want... edit and store photos (and write on the blog!)... If you are looking for speed...this isn't the computer for you. But if you're like us, it would be just what you need for scrapping!
Our lofty plans for this tiny computer include storing photos for scrapping and again, using it to edit those photos. I downloaded the new Photoshop Elements 8 for that purpose. Our intent is to download, edit and sort/store as we go along...rather than having these huge files of photos we are constantly going through...most of which we will never scrapbook, since we only pick the really good ones to do a layout with. It is my hope that we'll stay a bit more organized when it comes to having photos ready to scrap into layouts! We'll see.
In the meantime, we've had a lot of snowfall here, not enough to close schools, but enough to make you want to hibernate until spring... that said, this is my photo for Day 8 of our Project 365.
