Hello! I admit I have been a long time lurker, was so excited to see the Designer Contest BEFORE it started!

Since I plan on entering, I thought it'd be great to introduce myself! I'm still fairly new to the digi-scrap community and designing, but it's been a passion since I was hooked!

I am a 34, SAHM to my wonderful little boy who just turned a year and a half yesterday. My how the time goes by! I enjoy mass amounts of World of Warcraft with my boyfriend and when I am not creating or playing with my digi stash. An avid fan of horror movies/books/etc. Vampires especially and yes...I tried to avoid the Twilight series but got sucked in. I knew I couldn't resist the vampires! 3:)

Anywho, I look forward to getting to know you all as well as my competitors! I've been waiting for a contest that I didn't find out about too late again. ;) Feel free to ask any questions if you want to know more about me!

Hi! Welcome to The Studio! I'm new to the boards as well and am hyped about The Designer Contest! I know it will be a lot of fun and a great learning experience. :-)

I'm getting excited about this contest as well!

Hi there! Welcome to theStudio! :DD

Only 9 days to go.... not that I'm counting or anything! :rolleyes: 8D So excited to see what you ladies bring to the contest, it's going to be fabulous!!

I like vampires, too! But I'm more of an Underworld fan ;) Although, Zombies are what I'm really obsessed with! LOL!

We don't play WOW, but hubby is addicted to Call of Duty so, of course, I know everything there is to know about it!! hehehe...

Oh I love Zombies too! :D Underworld included with the vampires here, I like them all. :)

08-23-2011, 01:06 PM
Well, if I had to pick my favorite Vampire anything, I'd totally go with Buffy!! I am a complete Buffy fanatic! LOL! I love that all the seasons are on Netflix streaming, I watch while I'm designing! :l

Underworld is my fave "real" vampires.... hahahaha! Oh, and did you hear they're making a new Underworld movie??? I can't wait!! :DD

No way! I wonder what family they'll be featuring next, the spawn of Selene and Michael perhaps? :D Thanks for the info!

Well well, so nice to see a familiar face Heatheranne. :D
I'm getting excited about this contest as well!

Yes, it's great to see familiar faces! I've seen a few girls that I know! It'll be great fun to play against each other.

I'm so excited about it, that I downloaded CS5.5 to try it out. I'll still have PSE9 to fall back on if I have problems. roflol

Have a great day! :-)

Welcome! I'm a California girl but was lucky enough to visit New England last fall (I have family in Boston) and loved it. So beautiful!

Oh how I wish I could afford a newer version of Photoshop! Sadly all I have is 7, but I have PSE 9 and have been toying with Inkscape a little. Don't really care for it much though personally. :)

Darlene: Thanks for the welcome. California is beautiful too, I got to visit there quite awhile ago.

I have a lot of fun with PSE9, but wanted to try CS5.1 to see what I'm missing. I wonder if that's a good idea!!! lol I've never heard of Inkscape before. I've used PSP and had thoughts of using it with PSE9, but wanted to see what a full Photo Shop program would be like. I love downloading trials to check things out. :-)

Welcome to our happy family Cabalistic, I'm sure you'll never want to leave now that you have found us LOL. If you have any questions or problems just holler.
I'm a long way from you all, I am from Sydney Australia but I feel like the studio is my family :) It really is my home away from home ;)

Hello Cabalistic, welcome to theStudio. I know what you mean about finding contests BEFORE they start, very frustrating. I'm sure you'll enjoy this one, Toiny is so good at giving design inspiration! BTW, we're sort of neighbors, I'm in southern NH and DH has family in ME. How'd you make out yesterday in the hurricane? Luckily the only damage I had was a dent to my house's gutter and lots of tree branches on the roof and lawn to clean up.

See you in the contest threads... good luck!
