Hello, my name is Carol and I am new to digital scrapbooking. I have scrapped for the last 14 years but always did it manually.  Then I bought Photo Elements 12 and joined the digital camera club in Tucson, where we spent the winter at an RV park.  A couple of the ladies showed me how to make a digital page and how to make my own PNG files.  And a monster was born!!  I have a long way to go & so much to learn but I love what I have done.  I am also so glad the ladies told me about Scrap Girls.  An amazing website! Such pretty things!  However, in addition to Scrap Girls, I just scanned in ALL of my stickers and papers, hundreds of them, and am slowly making PNGs out of those that look the best.  See, I told you I had become a monster!  


I am from Virginia Beach, VA.  We are fulltime RVers, and LOVE the lifestyle.  I scrapbook all of our travels so I am the kind of travel nut that even takes pictures through the windshield of the truck as we amble down the road! We traveled extensively in our RV for 6 years and then we sold the house 5 years ago.  We have been all over the US. So I have scrapped tons of photos!  I just love all the beautiful scenery out there.  We winter somewhere warm and then head out to explore in the summer.  I just scrap along the way and it is my favorite hobby.  I look forward to even more of what Scrap Girls has to offer.  Hope to get to know many of you through the forum.

Looks like you are getting a warm welcome here ...so here is a welcome from me too.

I am looking forward to seeing your pages and travel shots. I want to see the US through your camera lens so please share.. We do travel by water so it is a different perspective and much more limited. "One if by land two if by sea"
