Sherii Parrett Digital Scrap

Sherii Parrett Digital Scrap: It's time for M80'S

Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might;
Ecclesiastes 9:10
King James Version (KJV)

This verse is me. I get into anything I am into. Right now it is Digital Scrapping. It is fun to learn so I thought some of you may want to learn with me.

One thing I learned is scrappers have blogs and websites. I am delving into learning blogging at the same time I am learning Digital Scrapping.

Learning is joy to me. I am very joyful right now. I am also learning how to make beaded key fobs to hang on my MICHE purses. I like to coordinate them to my outfits.

So, this blog may have all kinds of posts in it. Thanks for visiting.

I wanted a dog. I begged my husband for a dog. He caved. Now I have a dog and regrets. Don't get me wrong, I love this dog. A beautiful sable colored male daschund, he is adorable, beautiful, sensitive, always by my side. He is also very stubborn, difficult to train, emotionally dependant, and still not completely housebroken. I won't tell you how old he is. Hence, the regrets!
Here we approach 4th of July and this dog is very displeased and anxious over the cracks and booms that began already.
We have to medicate him with Benadryl as our vet advised. Even with that, he shakes, drools, hides, paces, pants and carries on. All the while, my husband and I watch his antics and feel so sorry for him. We take turns cradling and assuring him.
I wanted to go tell my neighbors to please not let those M80's off anymore for the sake of my dog. But, I knew in this neighborhood, my efforts would be futile. They host a massive block party every 3rd of July and people open garages and unload fireworks onto their golf carts hooked up with trailers and take them to the middle of the culdesac to share. It is a display that outdoes the city's! The M80's are there. They are inevitable and unavoidable.
Last week, dealing with this dog, and being sick, was rough. It was compounded by several situations I am watching my children go through, situations I am personally going through, and trials I am in the midst of that I am ready to see behind me. Of course, I want to come out gold. But,
on Sunday, I found myself losing it when one more thing happened out of nowhere. Questions banged around in my mind that I didn't want to voice to God. Who questions God? Not me! I look to His Word and see the promises. Then I look at the situations, wring my hands, and forget the promises.
On Monday, I was praying about a lot of these situations. I prayed for a long while, giving each of them over to God...Again.
Then, BOOM! SHAKE! RATTLE! Neither of us expecting it, my dog leapt and I jumped. It was early afternoon, and the neighbors were at it again. How many M80's did they buy?
The Benadryless dog was now a mess. I picked him up. Trying to soothe him, I began stroking his fur, pulling him close. I whispered in his ear, "How many times do I have to tell you, those things are not going to destroy you. They are loud, they are scary, but, you know they won't touch you. You are in the house. You are safe. I've got you. You've heard all this noise before and when the noise went away, you were fine. Why do you act like this when you know what I'm telling you is true? Why do you become so frantic?" Then, I heard Jesus. He whispered to me, "This is how you look when you let these situations overcome you." That is all He said. It was enough. I understood. If you could see how my dog acts, you would be embarrassed for me.
Thank you, Jesus. I will add trust to life's page today. I will apply liberal glue so it is firmly pasted down. I will add some brads, too. I don't want to ever lose my trust in you.

Why you are here...

Truthfully, you are here on this earth to praise Him. Let every thing that hath breath, praise ye the Lord. READ PSALM 150 ;)

Why are you at my blog?

Probably because I invited you and you love me, so you humored me. Or, maybe you stumbled in. However you arrived, Know that I like you and I'm glad you're here. What is it all about?

Mostly digital scrapbooking.I find that whatever I set my hand to do I usually do it with all my might. My problem is is that I set my hand on so many thiings!

Anyways, one of the two MANY things I am currently learning is how to set up a blog...

Go to That is easy!

Pick a name.

Not as easy...

every cute name I thought of...taken! Read earlier posts and you may see why I called it crumbdig.

WHILE digging today, I got sidetracked by a site called

(I posted one of the FREE lessons to my facebook wall).

I learned how to make a reusable photo frame but when I uploaded it, it isn't in it's layer form when I try to open it..I thought by making it a png file it would allow someone to download for their own use. If you know why this didn't work or how i can make it work, let me know in the comment section. Thanks.

I learned how to make patterns. I learned a lot. I will post a few pieces of 12x12 paper. I get impatient (to say the least). But here goes... I can only load 5, so for now, 5 it is the frame that won't open in layers as I hoped.

I learned how to make this one on It doesn't look like much I know.

But, when I open mine in PSE (PHOTOSHOP ELEMENTS) it opens in layers and I can insert a photo right into this...

Here is some paper...I just made patterns by making a selection(something that will look interesting repeated/edit/define pattern/make a new layer/paintbucket tool/pattern (pick my recently made pattern from the menu/ and use the paint bucket to fill in the layer.


Oh HOW could I forget?? I learned how to make a gingham looking design...Filter/Distort/Wave option...just play with it and you will see...or go to for the Party lesson.

Or to my facebook because I shared that lesson on my page also...


go to for the video lesson..yep I will be learning how to do my own videos to instruct as I am being

I hope you will come back and bring someone who loves scrapping with you! It is going to get real busy! Real fast!

Collossal glossary I just typed out was deleted inadvertently while trying to blog from my droidblog. While I succeeded in gaining a great start on a carpal tunnel condition, I failed to post the glossary.

This was maddening. Coupled or should I say tripled by the fact that I don't feel too great, my dog is in the midst of a three hour long anxiety attack over early fireworks (if you call eighteen M80s in 3 hours, fireworks)!

I'd rather be digiscrapping. I want my blog up and running. Day is done. Blog time is over.

My droid glows in the darkness.The dog's vet prescribed anxiety meds kicked in for him, finally. Like a newborn, he is nestled gently between my husband and I.

Familiar fan whirs away the days frustrations. I come to grips with the loss of my hard work on that glossary. I will do it over, later. In more detail.

M80's cease. Things are quiet on the battleground, I mean, culdesac. Angry thoughts lie like snap pops on sidewalks of my mind, torn open, sawdust exposed,useless. Jesus appears in my thoughts. A calm, gentle wind, He sweeps them away.

A clear, unlittered walkway. Taking my hand in His, we walk until He stops to admire brightly written sidewalk chalk designs apparently abandoned by one of His children. He is pleased with what He sees. I look closer. Birds, flowers, spirals,and words scrawled within the design. How hard it must have been for a child to leave the masterpiece behind.

I read the words, Peace. Faith. Love. Joy. I recognize the print as mine! Smiling,Jesus produces His own piece of chalk. He adds one more simple word. Rest.

I will. Standing together, I quickly imprint the design in my mind. He glances down the path ahead of us. Rest,He says. Tomorrow, we will walk again.
