It took me a while to gather thoughts, but here goes:
I wasn’t a paper scrapper. My first interest actually was photo editing. After moving to Florida from New Jersey, I took a short course on how to use editing software. I bought PSE 6 and loved the neat things that I could do with it: cropping, adjusting color and light, and adding text. I went on to try different creative effects. Then I got curious about making scrapbook pages, so I started a search for scrapbooking freebies. I found several sites and began to download every free thing I could find. That’s how I discovered Scrapgirls – and the rest is history! I liked the quality of the offerings here and the fact that SG gave away a whole free collection as well as something new each day. I even purchased a couple of things. Eventually I became a member and bravely posted my first layout. So I guess you could say I got lured to SG because of its generosity, then stayed because of its quality. I told my husband’s niece Marilyn (MariJ) to check SG out, and she joined even before I did. Now I have friends here from all over the world. We chat, we comment on each other’s layouts; it’s just the warmest place I could imagine for indulging my hobby.
Now for some personal stuff: I’m married, retired, have two grown sons, and three adorable grandchildren. My husband and I live on the west coast of Florida. I like reading, sewing, yoga, needlework, eating and sleeping, but all those have been pushed aside for scrapping, LOL!
I guess I talked long enough! Carla, you asked me for a link to a favorite layout. I’ve put up so many layouts that I recruited MariJ and DH to help me pick. Here’s the link to one we all like:
Also, in case you are curious, here’s my first layout (all freebies!)
Thank you. I feel truly honored to have been picked for Scrapgirls’ Member of the Month.
Diane! You deserve it! We're glad you're here!
