  • Hello from a newbie

    A complete and utterly naive newbie I should say!

    I have done absolutely no scrapbooking ever! Not once. I had friends that would get together to scrapbook once a week in Germany (we're military) and they graciously allowed me to come too and cross stitch . So, I've seen it done. Does that count?

    I homeschool 4 boys, and I'm really looking at this for it's notebooking aspects. (Although I do confess I see great fun in store for me, to share pictures with friends and family.) The fact that this is a digital program is absolutely superb for me.

    But, as I'm clueless, I fear I have no idea where to start how to get going etc. Yet, I'm excited to learn something new, so, I'm sure I will be learning by leaps and bounds throughout.

                Currently my printer is doing just that; with the user guide! Some things I just can't "read" on a monitor, if you know what I mean.

                Thanks, I think I will be doing just that once I get the full program installed.

                Thanks all for the welcome. As I said, my printer is going to town right now. I have sick kiddos so this is the perfect opportunity for me to do some reading / exploring.
