    Hi!

    Good Morning everyone!

    My name is Sarah. SallyJesse is just an old nickname of mine. I joined a while ago, but haven't been posting. I'm currently living in VA, but my DH is in the Navy, so we won't be staying here forever (yeah!). We have 2 kids, ages 7 and 4.

    I've been scrapbooking since 1996, but have only been digi scrapbooking since about 2010. I'm totally in love with digi scrapbooking now and I just loving buying from DD. I still have so many paper supplies, so I still paper scrapbook too. I also am a {Project Life} fan and just started my 4th year of {project life} book. Love that project!

    I have some layouts to load, but I need to figure out this gallery.

    I uploaded a layout, twice actually, into what I thought was my gallery, but I can't find it. Hmmmm.......

    Hi Sarah,

    Thanks for introducing yourself, Sarah. It's fun to know how enthused you are about our hobby and it is more fun when we share our work in the gallery so I hope you'll try again.

    Usually when a layout does not load it is because the size is too big. Make sure to resize your image to 700 x 700 pixels and then try again. It should work.

    Ah ha! I figured it out, finally. It was too large and that's why it wasn't loading up. I loaded layout of my DD. It's really poor quality though, the full version don't look so fuzzy. I'll have to go thru my layouts and post some more (that I'm sure are DD products).

    Thanks all! Great to be here!

    -Sarah

    ETA: Oh and look! My "view gallery" link is up too. I was wondering how to get that link. Love it!

    Hi Sarah! Glad you're here and getting involved. I know you'll love the DD community! The forums and gallery were pretty confusing for me for a while. Ask questions if you have them, we love to help!There are a LOT of fun challenges and activities that go on all the time...check the blog regularly for those!
    My pages look fuzzy when I upload if I haven't run an unsharp mask on the reduced size image prior to saving for web. Could that be it?
    Also, we certainly love seeing DD products in the gallery, but you are allowed to upload other pages, too. Contests do require you to submit entries that use all DD products.
    We look forward to getting to know you better!

    Welcome Sarah! I just came out of lurkdom too, and it is such a warm friendly group! You will love it here. I found the forum at bit confusing at first too, (coming from another site) but just "click" around and ask questions, they will always be answered, and have fun! Glad to have you here!

    Thanks everyone!

    I need to load more pages, but I didn't really keep track of all the products used, so I'll have to go back and make sure most or all of them are DD products.

    I do have several quick-pages from Katie and Lynn, is it silly to post those too? I always feel like I'm majorly cheating by using quick-pages. <blush>

    Welcome, Sarah!

    Quick pages are NOT a cheat! They are practical! lol

    I look forward to seeing more of your pages. You have come to the right place for inspiration and support!

    Welcome from me too, Sarah! I think we are in for a treat when you have time to load some more pages . . . your first one is darling.

    I think that you will find several military wives here . . . and some of retired military too. So, you are in good company!
