    Hi! I'm Shannon

    Hi! I live in Washington State--Vancouver to be specific. But I am originally from Wisconsin so I am a big cheesehead. I have two grown sons--one in the Air Force and one still in college. I have been a nurse for 31 years but am currently working as an IT analyst for a hospital system. Hoping to get to know more about you all. I know a few of you from my time at 2 Peas when I was posting there.

    I do have some questions though. I had no trouble posting my first LO this last weekend but am having a lot of trouble today. Says I have posted successfully four times but I can't find it anywhere in my layouts have gone. They aren't in My Photos or the Member Gallery where I posted them to. I admit--I am having a little difficulty navigating the site till to find what I am looking for but I'm sure I should be seeing them on My Photos and am not. If anyone has any advice--I would welcome it. I tried on two different web browsers even to see if one or the other would make a difference.

    Hi Shannon! A warm welcome to DD, it's lovely to have you here! Sorry to hear you've had some problems posting. As you say, you should be able to see your pages in 'My Photos' or the Member Gallery. I had the same problem in the beginning and it was generally due to my page size being too big. I think the maximum size is 250kb. If that's not the problem, I'm sure someone else will chime in here with other solutions.

    Any other questions, please ask, there's a wealth of knowledge here at DD and there's always somebody willing to help!

    Happy scrapping!

    Hi and welcome Shannon! I can only see two pages in your gallery.

    http://www.designerdigitals.com/digi...=shannonroller

    I don't think there's a limit in kb? I might be wrong, mine are more than 250. I save at 700x700 and 300dpi and have no probs.

    Anyway welcome and hope to see lots more from you.

    I did get a response and it was because the lo was too big. I posted my first one full size so I didn't think about it being too big. I guess my first one must have been really low in pixels to make it. Thanks for the welcome.

    Hi Shannon! I thought I recognized your name from my own 2Peas days many, many years ago. Welcome toDesigner Digitals! Happy to have you with us.

    I size my layouts the same size as Carol does. Check your image size and try uploading again.

    ETA: Oh, good for you! I see you you're all set now. That is good!

    Hi Shannon! Welcome. I'm thinking that after all those years on your feet it must be nice to sit down at work.

    Hi Shannon! Looks like I'm late to the (welcoming) party. It's nice to see another cheesehead in the gallery. I was born and raised in central WI. I hope you got your problem fixed. Happy scrapping!

    Hi Shannon, I guess I recognized your name from 2 peas as well, because I was wondering why you were posting in the newbie section.... Welcome to DD, (my home after 2 peas as well) and I think I stalked and followed Esther here.... Have fun and looking forward to seeing you in the gallery.... DD is a great place!
