About Me

Hello all! I'm a brand new Photoshop Elements user and it really wasn't by MY choice! My husband and I began traditionally scrapping together in 1997 when we lived in Seattle (far away from home, no kids, had lots of time together!). When we moved back to our home-town in Michigan, we started our family but continued to paper scrap. We were avid readers of Creating Keepsakes (I'm also a pack rat and have all the editions downstairs still!) but when my husband purchased a digital camera, that threw me off my scrapping game. I no longer had the pictures to hold in my hand, didn't have the cute little card with all the pictures from the roll, lost control of the camera because my HUSBAND always used it, and I simply gave up. My poor daughter doesn't have ANY books completed about her life and she's SEVEN!! Yikes!

So when my husband found the digital scrapbooking magazine and ordered a subscription, I wouldn't even look at it. He poured through the pages and found so many layouts he liked. He noticed that they were all created in PhotoShop SO for my birthday last year, he bought me PSE6. I tried to figure it out but to no avail. My husband doesn't give up easy, so he went online and found Scrap Girls! He ordered Ro's Secrets and More Secrets Revealed and signed me up to attend the Scrap Girls Seminar in SLC!

At the seminar, I still found PSE to be difficult and made up my mind that I would continue to use only the digital scrapbooking program that I had, but by the second day of the seminar, I was getting hooked on PSE! The "doctor" gave me a prescription to go through my tutorials 15 minutes a day until I learn all that I can and I can't wait to get started!!

I hope to share some of my new creations very, very soon... :2468who-do-we-appreciate:
