Hi There Betty!
I started out using Photoshop just to edit my photos and then found digi-scrapping and then fell in love. Scrapping and the digi-scrapping tutorials really helped me to learn Photoshop where I struggled with the photographers' tutorials on PS.
Hope you enjoy looking around at our challenges -- you might enjoy the Photography and Techniques Challenges. If you love the look of texture on your photos, try playing around with the blending modes!
