I am a scrappin newbie

Hi ladies! My name is Emily and I am a member of the Nov 06 birth board. I have always been interested in scrapping, but never stick with it. I have been trying to learn how to digital scrap, and I absolutely love it, even though I am still trying to figure out photoshop. :shock: Anyway I just wanted to introduce myself to you talented ladies. Smile Hi !!!

Hi Emily!!!!

Welcome!!!! I was just thinking about you the other day and was wondering how you have been.

OMG how cute is your DS. Makes me want to pic him and shower him with kisses.

You will find the girls here that do digi, will be very helpful. I'm a paper scrapper but I thought during my vacation I'm going to try and sit down and figure out digital scrapping but we will see. I like the paper because it's fun for me.

What a little sweetie! My son is 6 and a half now, but I am in the process of scrapping his toddler pics. I had them in an album but I am not reall liking it because it was an 8 X 11 album and I want a 12 X 12, plus I was not very good at scrapping back then & the pages are really boring. I have just been using Paint Shop Pro for digi scrapping but I plan to buy a copy of Photoshop soon, so I will be right there with you as far as learning the software!
I posted a bunch of boy pics in my previous threads if you are interested. I LOVE my boy! It is so fun to scrap with the boy stuff. I have a daughter too, and that's fun too, but I really love finding cute boy stuff LOL

Thanks ladies for the warm welcome.

Ok this is the first layout I have ever done. Yes it still needs work, but I am kinda happy with it. I am still learning how to crop pictures, so I need to fix these two so they aren't squished, and I need to fix the fuzzy text. Any other tips on how to make it better?

hi emily!! Smile welcome!!

are those digital? do you think the pages as a whole are squished or the pictures in the pages? is the writing fuzzy on your original layout?
