About Me

Who am I? A newbie on this forum or any forum for that matter. My name is Elizabeth who just joined Scrap Girls today after searching the web the last few months. Last year I was in the middle of creating a multimedia slideshow/movie type presentation for my Mom's Christmas present. I have for many years put backgrounds to enhance family photos but to me scrapbooking was strickly a paper and scissor craft and as even in kindergarden I could not cut straight that has never been one of my hobbies. About September my grand-daughter, whom we raised, asked me to find inexpensive scrapbook resources. I went to few stores and was agast at the cost of paper and dodads. I then turned to the web and then was amazed on two levels. One was the vast amount of "freebies" available and two - even more important - that basically what I had been doing all these years on my computer in Photoshop was called digital scrapbooking.

I was in love... for I have always been one that had to create and to learn new things by taking on projects. I cannot tell you the many things I learned while in the process of creating my Mom's life atory. I took a break from my project and went on a manic two months of creating scrap pages for challenges. Along that journey I learned how much I did not know and now have a freverent desire to increase my skills. Oh and by the way that project was finished Christmas morning at 8am - just four hours before I was to present the two hour long movie to her.

Who or what do I love the most? My hubby of 27 years, my son and daughter, and my grand-daughters... my family that includes two spoiled dogs, one equally spoiled cat, and numerous birds. Reading, family history, music are among some of my interests.

I live in Griffin Georgia about thirty miles south of Atlanta.

So greetings to you all....
