Hello Everyone! My name is Melanie and I have been scrapbooking for several years but have only started digitally scrapbooking for about a year. I love the way you can change your mind so easily with digital scrapbooking and that you don't have a mess all over the place when you are preparing a layout. I have two teenage boys and they keep me extremely busy. I love to scrapbook whenever the time allows it which is not as often as I would like. I have purchased items here on scrapgirls awhile back but have not really had much activity on the website such as forums, blogs, or sharing layouts until recently. I look forward to sharing and meeting new friends soon.

Welcome to Scrap Girls! It took me awhile to get active at Scrap Girls, too, but everyone was so nice and friendly, that I never looked back! I like being able to change my mind about my layouts, too, but my favorite part....hiding all my supplies on my ehd!

Welcome! As others have said, feel free to ask questions. Also, check out the newsletter, if you haven't already. I know what you mean about the 'neat' factor of digital - I have a very small apartment & being able to shut everything up and have nothing outside my computer is a wonderful benefit.
