digi scrapping with embedded video

When I read an article entitled "find your digital style" in a recent edition of SCRAPBOOK INSPIRATIONS MAGAZINE I must confess that I inwardly groaned and thought "I just don't have one!" I find it really hard to make a digi layout from scratch (like Shimelle Laine can) and no amount of kits (like these) seemed to help me. And to be honest I just love getting in a mess with scissors and glue so I didn't mind being no good in the digi world.

However, in Jane Dean's column of the same article, she mentioned the possibility of embedding video clips into digi layouts and I'm always up for a challenge so I thought I'd give it a go! I could only find one little bit of video my husband accidently took of me being a big kid in the snow earlier this year, so it's not that professional looking but the effect is still quite good. 

I scanned in a paper layout and added my video clip over the top of one of the pages existing photographs. I suppose it could have been truly digi if I had made the whole layout on the computer, which I did try, but as usual got rather frustrated! I hope you like the finished product :o)
