Hello everyone!

I'm new here but not new to digital scrapbooking. Back in 2004 to 2006 I was very involved in the quite small digital scrapbooking community. My how it's grown!!! After my son was born in 2006, being a working mom with two babies 17 months apart I had little time for it. Then a lot of crummy stuff happened in my life. Recently I was asked to create a scrapbook for my in-laws 50th wedding anniversary and I realized how much I love and missed this hobby!

So I downloaded the latest version of PSE, went to Youtube, watched some tutorials on what's new, and I'm back at it! I wanted a community to connect with so I did my homework on what looked to be the best community... and here I am!

I added a few of my old layouts to the gallery. I love to share because my inspiration comes from viewing others beautiful works!

That's it in a nutshell!

Thank you everyone! I'm loving all the site has to offer. I did the chat yesterday and won a kit! I picked the Spare Me as we just went bowling last weekend and I have tons of cute pictures of my kids!!!

And I'm really excited, I got a new camera body yesterday. I shoot with a Micro 4/3s. I posted in the photography forum to find out if anyone else does as well. I switched from an dSLR because of the weight. Love it!
