Hello everyone!

My name is Edelyn and I am new to the group and to scrapbooking as a whole. I am 37 years old and have been married to my wonderful husband for the last 19 years. My interest in scrapbooking started recently, we are hoping to make a pilgrimage next year to Israel and I looked into a travel journal. I used to play with paint shop pro a lot with tags and such but it has been over 5 years since I last did anything with it. I am looking forward to learning a lot from everyone, making new friends and developing a new hobby for myself.

Have a great week!
Edelyn

Hello Fellow Digiscrappers,

I feel this is the right place to be, then not quite sure. I'm kinda new here, but signed up many years ago. I use to digiscrap a few years ago and I gave it up for what reason I don't know. However, I miss it very much and want to get back started. Let me do the preliminaries first. My name is Michele, SonDoras is my first name I rarely use it, but it is so hard to create a screenname when signing up for sites these days. I knew that one wouldn't be taken. :2468who-do-we-appreciate::-) I live in Washington, DC. I have 3 children; my mom lives here with us to. I have mostly been knitting, crocheting and reading books. Recently, meaning just last week started back digiscrapping. I've created one layout, it looks ok but needs work. I've forgotten so much. I'm looking forward to learning again. I hope to make many friends and learn lots. For starters, I need to learn to navigate the site. I'm currently using PSE4. I have Photoshop 7, but I don't know how to use it. Look forward to reading replies, meeting and making new friends.

Michele
