Default Hello from a Kiwi living in Australia

Hi,

I have been hanging around here for a bit (one of my fav places to lurk while trying to get a feel for digi scrapping) I am a paper scrapper who is trying to learn the digi craft. Great month to hang about, having so many talented scrappers and designers involved in the competitions.

I am Mum to three grown kids who have stayed in NZ when hubby and I moved over the ditch (as they say) to Australia for his work. I am newly qualified as a massage therapist and my hobbies and interests include Scrapbooking and Genealogy.

Thanks for the friendly welcome and encouragement with my first layouts.

Cheers

Debra

Hi Debra!

Welcome to digi-scrapping. I don't think I've looked back since I started, though I am getting interested in Hybrid. This is a great place to be, I'm glad you are liking it so far.

Welcome on board!

I am using PSE 7. Brought it from a real store when it was the latest with the intention of playing with my photos a bit and venturing into digi scrapping. Have been paper scrapping - often with old photos that have resided in shoe boxes (I have negatives seperately) and would prefer to muck around and play with them and get them in an album and being looked at, than sitting in a shoe box (I know they say don't use your originals) However we have been taking digital photos since 2002 so this is logical really. I joked with hubby that it would be when our household stuff was packed to move again that digi might take hold of me (but I have access to both right now, and I have finally just started playing with digi) Silly to be scared of it really - I cover up oopsies on paper so why not play knowing I have an 'undo' button.

Thanks for the encouragement

Debra

Hi Tracey,

We are living walking distance from St Leonards Station, so also close to city but in another direction. In the big scheme of things in Sydney that's not really too far away. Hubby is contracting and is currently covering vast distances everyday so we have first hand experience of the scale of things here but pleased to live fairly central.

Debra
