1.Where do I start?
2. What do I need to purchase?
3. Should I take the classes that are offered all over the internet at varying prices?
4. Any other advice that doesn't fit into the above would be greatly appreciated! THanks a lot guys! I look forward to knowing you guys!

Hi and Welcome!!! I'm Des, this is a fabulously fun hobby :>
A great place to start is SaveTheGreen.net it is run by one of the designers here at the studio SKrapper Digitals and her pal Trish F.
There is free software to download, step by step tutorials and even a free starter kit. You can ask questions in the forum and get lots of feedback and support. The best thing about this hobby is you can get started without spending a penny
Of course, once you get addicted, start saving your pennies cuz you'll be wanting the newest fabulous kit, an EHD, a scanner, a better camera and
maybe even the full version of Photoshop lol!!! Hoping to see your first layout in the gallery soon!

I'll 2nd Des!

There are also two full, free kits here in our store: Lilypond and Live Love Laugh. A great place to get started before plunking down some change. You can also look at layouts in the gallery for inspiration & kits you'd like to have.

I personally love, love, love shopping for kits. I'm amazed what some people create and can't wait to play with their designs... even if lately I have very little time for playing ;P

Smooches,

Toiny

Well, luckily, I just got a new camera not too long ago. It is my first D-SLR. I LOVE IT! I have Corel, I think. Do I need Photoshop or Photoshop Elements? Do I need one of those Bamboo pads? Those look super neat and easier to use to take backgrounds out of photos.
