Thanks Beach Girl at Heart and Scrap Girls Wise One.
I made a few pages using Paint.net then last week I made some using Shutterfly but really want to make them in 8.5x11 size so they will fit on a bookshelf better but not be too small. So now I'm thinking about running to WalMart and getting Photoshop Elements. At this point I'm all over the place trying to figure it out but by reading this forum I'm feeling a bit more confident. I'm wanting to redo my 12x12 heritage pages into digital so I won't be leaving my future generations with a big bulky burden lol
