Hello from Iowa, USA
I am new to the forum and site. I just purchased CS5.5 and signed up for an Illustrator class. I can't wait to get started. It is so nice to be here. I am from Emmetsburg, Iowa. We moved here 16 years ago from California (don't ask me why lol) We love it. I used to own a retail rubber stamping and scrapbook store but closed it about a year ago. Now I am getting into digital and really love it. I teach some Photoshop Elements classes here in town but traditional scrapbooking is still more popular in the midwest. So, I am expanding my skills and learning to design products. So far, I am hooked. You can visit my blog that I write with my friend if you like at www.micheggy.blogspot.com
So glad you found us Michelle - welcome to GDS!
