    Hi! My name is Crystie and I am a brand new digital scrapbooker. I have been a paper scrapper for 13 years and I am not tech savvy, so the learning curve is steep! I have posted a couple of questions here and gotten great tips -- thanks!

    I live in Texas and have been married to my college sweetheart for 26 years. We have three children ages 23, 20 and 18.

    I teach preschoolers with disabilities and absolutely LOVE my job!

    Don't imagine you'll see me in the gallery for quite some time, but I'm excited about learning from all of you and getting to know you!

  2. Welcome to DD Crystie! It's great to have you here with us. Hang in there - it will all click. Don't hesitate to ask for help when you get stuck!

    Welcome, Crystie! Look forward to seeing you in the gallery. This is a wonderful site with a wealth of information and so many generous people willing to share.

    As for the learning curve. My goal was to learn one new thing each day. Don't get overwhelmed. Keep a list of your questions and ask here and someone will have the answer or some guidance for you.

    Enjoy and have fun!
