                           Scrapbook


What is a digital scrapbooking?
Digital scrapbooking is the process of utilizing the latest in electronic technology to
create scrapbook pages. Instead of using a traditional hard copy scrapbook and cutting
out elements to paste into the book, digital scrapbooks allow users to create electronic
books that are loaded with different colors, fonts, banners, and images such as photos and
drawings. Digital scrapbooking makes it possible to share the scrapbook quickly and
easily with one or more people, while still retaining control of the original copy.

What is expected in this project?
      All 20 photographs taken in the first phase of this assignment are to be used in the
       digital scrapbook: Photographing the Festive Season Part 1.
      There must be a cover page for the scrapbook that contains the following
       information:
       1. Title of the book (this should indicate the theme of the scrapbook)
       2. Images, graphics or clipart that helps add to the theme of the scrapbook
      A maximum of 3 pictures are allowed to be used for each page of the electronic
       scrapbook.
      Each scrapbook page will have Christmas, festive, or a seasonal theme. There
       should be some form on continuity in the book either by the use of elements such
       as colour, layout, or some other visual theme such as graphics.
      Each picture will have a frame or some form of finished edge around it on the
       scrapbook page.
      Each scrapbook page will have added text to help the viewer relate to the images
       and set the tone for the page.
      Each scrapbook must contain graphics, clipart or other effects.
      Each page must contain at least one special techniques that has been applied to the
       page and or the photo from the list below:
