Thread: Newbie, glad to be here!

    Newbie, glad to be here!

    Hi! My name is Cheryl and I am brand new to scrapping. In fact, I haven't had the nerve yet to even start (why is that?). I think it intimidates me just a tad lol, but it intrigues me as well. I am no newbie to graphics, as I have worked with Corel and PSP since about 1992, so I don't really know why I hesitate to scrap lol. I am 48, very happily married, mother of 5, grandmother of 5. I was a nurse until I became disabled by Multiple Sclerosis in 1986. Although I do not work outside the home, I am by no means sedentary as I help to raise my almost 2 yr old grandson - and he runs me in circles while running circles around me lol. I hope to learn a lot while here and am looking forward to getting to know everyone and FINALLY starting to scrap!
    *hugs* Have a fantastic day!
