I have just retired after 30 years selling real estate.  I've been a photographer all my life and have a lifetime of photos that I would love to share with family and friends.  I am hoping to learn how to digitally create my pages artistically to enhance my photos - all this is very exciting to me. Where have I been these last 10 years when all this on-line digital scrapbooking has evolved (WORKING!  Boooooo!)???????????  Well, now I am ready to begin my journey and I think I will start with Easy Pages, then find guidance through this wonderful site and learn to create more complex pages.

 

I am amazed at the fabulous designers ScrapGirls supports.  Just incredible!  Thank you for all your hard work creating the templates, brushes, Easy Pages, cool fonts, papers and designer content for people like myself who need help creating their pages.  I am grateful.

 

 

Fondly,

Paula

Paula, hope you enjoy the journey you have just embarked on.  Digital scrapbooking is very addictive and you have come to the right place to share and learn. This is where I learnt so very much back when I started digital scrapbooking back in 2008.
