I've lived in Washington state since I was 12, and lets just say that was a LONG time ago! Wife and mother of one, I am so blessed to have been able to raise our son as a stay-at-home Mom! Scrapbooking the traditional way (paper, ALL photos in chronological order, etc.) since I was in grade school, I started digital scrapbooking in my late 30's. But I found that I was missing the 3-D feel and look to my pages, as well as feeling overwhelmed by the AMOUNT of photos I was using. So, I started doing a hybrid of both, printing out 8x8 digital pages and putting those on 12x12 paper, and only scrapping what I treasured or what my son might treasure as an adult. I'm liking the results, AND I get to use my ever-increasing stash of STICKERS!!!!! I'm curious to start designing my own digital graphics, but not sure how to go about it. I know the tutorials here will help me greatly, once I get up the nerve to start!
