    New Here


    I am fairly new here - just posted my first page.

    I have been digiscrapping for about 4 years now - on and off.

    Used to use one of the on-line programs (which has since been discontinued), then tried ACDC Photo Editor, FotoFusion and limited PSE. Over the last year I have been doing more digiscrapping - worked out how to used layered templates which has got me more into PSE. Still having trouble with text in PSE - so have downloaded a few of your tutorials and tips for some help there.

    I have loved looking through the gallery and especially the CT gallery where I stumbled across my sister (Shannamay) - she always was so creative!!

    I was born in Western Australia and lived there for 45 years before we (my husband and myself) shifted to rural South Australia about 5 years ago. We couldn't have children but we do have two spoilt dogs.

    I love history particularly social history and so a lot of my pages have been using vintage images and photos.

    Looking forward to joining in this community.
