My Name is Tanya. I went through a bunch of rough patches and I have a hard time trusting people with my thoughts and feelings, so I turned to paper scrapbooking in 2005 as a form of therapy. Then realize you can go digital I switched and never looked back (unless I was working on a gift). I started with GIMP. Then another rough patch came through in 2012 when my Dad passed away and then a month later my boyfriend was diagnosed with Renal Kidney Failure. Life is too short just learn the things you want to learn. For Scrapbooking I always tried to design so I purchased a copy of PSE and ran with it. That's my scrapbooking story. Real life - I love my job and team. When I am not scrapbooking, I am gaming. Oct 2014 - new addition to the family - my Cocker Spaniel mix - Cali. We got her to help with the emotional support for everything going on and now she runs the house.
