Thats why I love this site so much - the members here really are the Best - and you just wait till the others get on line - you'll have even more people 'talking' to you!!
And, yes, you most certainly can use PS 7 for scrapbooking - a fair fewe people do - or they use PSCS/2 which are just the upgrades.
Love that about your kids wanting pizza for dinner for the rest of their lives - my 6 year old dd wants to have pizza at her wedding breakast!!! lol!!
