welcome Lisa, you'll find that a lot of us went from paper scrapping to digital. It's such fun to find out what all these buttons on your program are for. Just don't be afraid to play with them all and experiment.Which program are you using?
I will confess that once I started digiscrapping my craftvan with tons of toys and paper feels awfully neglected.
look forward to see your layouts about Australia - I wanna go back there when the ship with money comes in ,( if ever)
