I'm Karen, I'm pretty new to digiscrapping, but I'm finding it pretty fun. I'll be 50 this year and don't mind it a bit. :) Married 3 1/2 years to my best friend and honey. Between us we have 7 children (only one left at home) and 9 grandkids.

I love to knit, and quilt, sew... and now this! There simply isn't enough time in the day :)

Currently I'm trying to figure out how to put a layout in my album, sometimes I feel so dense :) I think I uploaded our wedding pic into the wrong place. I hope ya'll are patient with newbies!!!

Thank you for the nice welcome :) I see I'll need to jazz up my signature!!! er... make one first, then jazz it up :)

First let me say, Welcome to SAS! I know what you mean when you say "and now this", LOL, I was a crafter of many kinds myself, especially loved sewing but now... well, let's say that my interests have changed!

With regards to the signatures - what you're seeing above aren't so much jazzed up signatures (you can see their names/signatures appear normal), they are things called 'blinkies'. These are ways of advertising digital scrapbooking designers and stores.

For instance,

mamrotka above, is a designer. She has a blinkie advertising her designs and another one advertising Stone Accent Studios (SAS) because that is where she sells her designs.
sharpli above, is on the Creative Team (CT) here at SAS so her SAS blinkie is a bit different from the one that mamrotka has. I'm not sure about her other blinkie, she may be on the CT at mootwodesigns as well, or she might just be a fan of their stuff.

Some people do create small images for their signatures though and you are certainly welcome to do that! Get creative anyway you can, I say! You may notice that I have an image for my signature.

I hope you have fun here... see you around the forums ;)
