Good post, Debra!
For organizing, Photoshop Elements has a great little Organizer. I'm very happy with it.
What an awesome post!
Welcome aboard to anyone joining us here in the Digi Scrapping World!
You have picked an awesome site to start your venture!
There is so much you can do digitally that is done with paper, and many things paper cannot do- Enjoy the ride!
Couldn't agree more!

I need a little help finding the Welcome Pack~
I was there... & Now Im lost ,':oj
Hi there LittleFlower and welcome to GDS!
I'll be happy to help you. Are you referring to the "Welcome Friends" page kit? If so, you can click on the big logo at the upper left hand which will take you back to the home page where you can find the image of the "welcome friends" page kit. Please click right above the image on the text saying "free when you join". When you register, which you obviously did, you are sent an email with a link to download the free "Welcome Friends" page kit.
Feel free to holler if you need more help finding it, or if that is indeed not what you are referring to :)
Great to have you here..and no worries, you'll be running around here easily once you get the hang of where things are :)

thanks for any help...I can use all the help I can get, I sure hope this makes sense...LOL...I went back and the question I am asking is.....is there a photo bin in Photoshop CS5..so that you can see all your files.
