Gingerscraps!

Back in December I was reading the creative team calls at digishoptalk.com. I have not done a lot of digiscrapping in a few years and thought that if I applied for a team that I would get back in the swing of it and start scrapping again.
When you're chosen for a team you need to send a link to your most complete up to date gallery of layouts. Since I haven't scrapped much in a couple of years I knew that my gallery didn't have much to show.
I found a call for a position on a hybrid team at Gingerscraps. I was interested in that position because I've been doing projects for awhile now. I decided that I would send a link to my gallery and a link to my blog. I got the call and was invited to join the creative hybrid team at Gingerscraps.
I'm still learning my way around the forums but I have found it to be a very friendly, welcoming place.
I invite you to check it out! I'm excited about using digital kits with my new Cameo cutting machine!
I'm also getting a few digital layouts made too. Who knows---maybe I'll catch up with layouts in 2012!
The forum also has a challenge for project 365/52 which may be just the boost that I need for this year.
Many other challenges can be found in the forum too.

Happy New Year! (a little late, I know!)

Here it is, the last day of January and it's my first post for the new year.  I've had some crazy computer problems but all appears well right now. I thought I had fried my Acer netbook on New Year's Eve and thought I knew the steps to fix it. Apparently I left out one file & I figured out how to fix it  tonight on the 31st of January! It's been really sad without my netbook so I'm looking forward to having it back.
My external hard drive with all of my digital kits & cutting files tried to quit but it's working fine now.
I burn everything to cd & dvd so it would have been possible to copy all those files to a new ehd. I'm glad I didn't have to though.
I also bought a duplicate file finder that found tons of duplicates of all my many files.
I feel like I spent the majority of January doing computer work in the evenings and night.
It just feels good to end January with my equipment working and files better organized!
