    Emerging from Lurkville

    I've been lurking (adding a few comments already) here for about a week, and thought it was finally time to get friendly. I'm a little over two years old in digital scrapping and PSE. My main subjects are my grandchildren, but also some travel, as well as "Stories In Hand" using my digitized photos from the past 60+ years. I anticipate that this hobby will outlive me, for there is always something new to scrap even if I ever did finish all the old stuff (& don't see how I ever could!).

    What I've noticed and really like about DD (& why I, therefore decided to commit myself here):

    1. You are a cheerful and active community...always "new posts" even if I check back every half hour.

    2. The gallery (Ideas) has something fresh every 5 minutes! Lots of very classy inspiration.

    Glad I found you!

    Just passing through.
