Default NEW from Washington State!!! :)

Hey everyone!!! My name is Christa and I am from Washington State. I am a full time SAHM to three beautiful daughters, 10, 3 and 2. My husband is also full time Army. I am VERY new to digiscrapping but am VERY eager to learn and explore this whole new already addicting world.

I look forward to watching and sharing the creativity from you all.

As soon as I figure out how to post a few pages I have done, I would love to share them. My husband is deploying to Iraq soon and I am in the middle of designing a photobook for him to take along with him. I think it turned out wonderful so far.....

Hi Christa, welcome to SAS. As Tracy said, it's a great time to join us. When uploading to the gallery, just make sure your images aren't larger than 500x500. There's a great free program (you can google it) called Pix Resizer that I use to resize all my images before I post them (make sure to save your original for printing) that keeps the image quality high while reducing the file size.

I tried to upload to show the layout I did but it isn't showing up. I am not sure what I am doing wrong. I'll try resizing it in photoshop now and try again.

Thank you ladies for the warm welcome!!!

Where would I begin reading in this site so I can catch up and learn the way things flow here?

Thanks again.

OHHHH.....THANK YOU Ambowife for referring me to this site from RAKS. That was another site I accidentally went to in search of a military kit for my husbands photobook. I think I will like it here though.
