I am relatively new to traditional scrapbooking, and really new to digital. I resisted getting into scrapbooking because 1) I need another hobby like I need a hole in the head and 2) the early scrapbook pages I saw (a LONG time ag) were too "cutesy" for me. But now that I've seen newer pages I gave in...
I started doing regular paper scrapbooking because I have stacks of print photos from 4 years of living in the UK. But I'm also trying to figure out the digital because I've scanned old photos of my great-grandparents, etc, and would like to be able to save these for my kids, my brothers kids etc.
Well, I'm rambling...

Hi Kathy, welcome to GDS! You've landed in a good spot, and this is the best place to learn your new hobby! Feel free to holler with questions and join in some challenges - can't wait to see your pages!
Welcome Kathy! You'll love it here. This is the first place I found when I started to digiscrap and just fell in love. I did the traditional scrapping thing until I had my twins and then there was no time and no room lol.....
You can still use your printed photos though. Just make your layouts digitally and print them out then paste on your photos. Check out some of Shana's hybrid challenges to get more ideas.
