and why on earth am I getting fustrated?
I don't think i'm a computer illiterate but I just can't grasp how to get paper from an outside source into the LO. Or I get it in but I can't get it to cover the page or figure out how to make it just a small part. I'm sure it is just the software I'm trying out but uuuuggghh, why can't my brain think past the box and just get it. KWIM.
But I did find a great website with really cool freebies -- http://www.freedigitalscrapbooking.com/ -- some of their embelleshements are super cute. They have glass flowers and some paper.
It's a freebie called MemoryMixer -- I'm just trying it out for a few days to see if I like digiscrapbooking.
I have never tried MemoryMixer so I can't really help you out too much. But I hope you get it figured out because digi scrapbooking really is fun.
Dee, grab a free copy of photoshop from sourceforge http://aresgalaxy.sourceforge.net/ or get a 30 day trial from the photoshop site http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop/index.html
lots of people use paintshop pro, and it's not as expensive either
