Welcome Bev!! You're gonna love both the Max software and the forum! The ladies here are awesome, very friendly and helpful, so feel free to shout if ever you need anything. There's also lots of awesome challenges each month, and we're always happy to have new faces join us. The challenges are a great way to learn and since the requirements for each are sooo different to the next/last they add great variety to your albums. . . . You can also get all sorts of free goodies in the embies thread, so feel free to browse while you're here Not to mention inspiration from the galleries. . .
