Is This Really My Blog....HELP!!!

Love, Laughter, & Friendship always welcome here.

I have had so many people tell me how pretty my blog is and I'm thinking how do they know, I haven't even posted anything if you came by and I wasn't home I'm sorry I missed you!!

Hi everyone so glad you stopped by. My name is Linda but my friends call me Jazzy.This is the first time I've ever posted to a Blog..heck I didn't even know what a Blog was until I got into digital scrap Blog is a household word..I told my friend Kim that I was scared to do this, my life is kinda dull and boring..she said "Gee's girl just yak"...LOL Well I'm still a little nervous and I'm still trying to see how this thing works, so please have patience with me..and join me in this exciting, but sometimes scary,venture..the world of digital designing!!

Ok...what NOW.. LOL..I guess just start at the beginning!!

I wanted to do something special for my sisters 50th birthday. One night I was surfing the net and I came across a program for making digital scrap books,I thought "Wow that would be something even a dummy like me could do..just put in a picture and make a pretty page"..To make a long story short, I got the program, made her a scrapbook that began when our parents were born until she graduated high school. She LOVED it..and by that time I was TOTALLY addicted. I had gotten past just adding pictures and started with PS and the rest is history..

Today I'm loving everything about it..I've made 6 scrapbooks for other members of my family but the one I'm most proud of is the one I did for my only nephews graduation..It starts with the day he was born and goes thru graduation day..the book was huge and he loved it..

I met my dear dear friend Kim on SBM..we hit it off right away..we scrap a lot alike... When she got her store at DSO I stared making pages for her..I was her CT for a there are 10 of us and we have a great time.

When I discovered there were stores on line that sold digital scrap booking supplies I was amazed!! I began to think about designing and said to myself "when I learn more I am going to open a store and sell my things".Well let me tell you folk I've learned enough to know that is Never going to happen..LOL..while I was in my thinking phase, I discovered Word Art and I loved it from the get go..I started adding it to all my pages..and before long, making my me it just adds something special to a layout and makes it pop..

One day I had an idea to sell it..I went around to a lot of stores and found there were designers there that just made word art..I talked to Kim and Bunny about it..and well-you know the rest of that story..I'm just so thrilled to be a part of DSO There are so many talented designers there..and they are all so friendly and have made me feel so welcome..Bunny is a great boss. She goes above and beyond what most store owners do..she is always there to answer your questions and help in every way possible.

I have several sets of word art in my store now. Today there will be a new one called Sweet Baby..
