View Full Version : Hi from Erie, PA

Greetings to everyone. My name is Carol, I retired in 2004 from a child support collection office after 26 years. I live alone with my two cats, Willie and Smokey, they are a lot of company for me. My daughter Kim and granddaughter Laura live nearby and visit often; my daughter Shelli and three grandchildren live in MD but visit a couple times a year.

I enjoy digital scrapbooking and journaling as well as hybrid journaling and digital photography. I don't know what I would do without my computer and tv, they take up a lot of my time. I used to sew and crochet but they have taken a back seat to my digital life.

The guest designer, Berna Datema, had mentioned this site on her blog so I decided I better see what was going on here. I fell in love with this site and hope to submit many pages and purchase many of the items by the wonderful designers. I am happy to be here.:))

Hi Carol! I'm so excited to have you and get to know you and your family through your pages. My digital life has gotten the better of me too and I love sitting behind my computer and creating, I think you will fit in beautifully.

Big smooches,

Hi and welcome to The Studio. I went to Erie once as a young child. My dad had relatives that lived there. Looking forward to getting to know you.

Hi Carol! Thank you for taking the time to take a peek around here! I agree with the others! I think you will find it a very warm and welcoming environment. If you would like to jump right in, I would love to see you in my Surprise Me! Challenge! (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=328)

Welcome! Back in 2008, my husband and I spent the night in Erie on our Road Trip Honeymoon! We had dinner at the Olive Garden and every time we eat at Olive Garden, we always remember/talk about the two women sitting at the next table. They got salad with their meal and ordered it like this: No Olive Garden Dressing, ranch instead with "only a little lettuce." When their salad came, they asked for extra ranch and basically consumed an entire Olive Garden salad bowl of ranch dressing. I hope it wasn't you! But that's my Erie story! I hope you continue enjoying theStudio, it's the best site out there, in my opinion!
