I joined way back in 2009 during the summer, just before we found out we were moving house and my best intentions of being an active member were struck down by my "distraction fly". So I thought I best make a re-introduction :bliss:

My name is Irene but my friends/family call me Rene or EhKho. I'm a 32yrs old SAHM of 4 children {2 boys & 2 girls) aged between 8mths & 14yrs and I'm engaged to Darren {I call him Ren though as he prefers that lol}. I'm a feisty, cynical and sarcastic lass from Glasgow, Scotland who is now living in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, NE England.

I started out my online persona as a tagger in the late '90s using PSP and progressed from there to becoming a Bryce abstract artist in 2003 and then I started designing digital scrapkits in 2006 using PS, completely bypassing the layout creation process which is what I'm learning just now as I've taken a step back from designing to increase my skillset. I figure if I learn what looks good in layouts then I'll make better co-ordinating kits; or at least that's the idea lol.

It's good to be back to being part of a community and my aim is to make GS one of my online homes. Glad to see you all again!

Thank you! It's been nearly 7yrs since I was in Glasgow, I miss it dearly; especially the view from my window, "The Barras" & "Paddy's Market". LOL

Welcome back to GS! I think it is great that you are taking time to work on layouts in order to be sure your kits are user friendly. I've worked with more than a few kits that were anything but, so that extra step is definitely appreciated!

Thank you very much everyone!

Thank you! I discovered they weren't so user friendly when I tried using some of my latest and realised that not very many elements worked with each other, so I knew something had to be done about it.

I think I saw some of that with your comment about Edward not being a real vampire. I have to say I might be a Team Edward. ;)

:hi from a fellow Scot on the forum. I'm still in Scotland but down in the south west so not so very far from Newcastle either.

It's definitely not as big a deal over here as in the states, but if you want to go ahead and organise one, I'll come along :winking0071:

Hey Irene, welcome back to the game!!! I had a very similar thing happen, joined the site ages ago and never became active until recently. But I have to tell ya, I love it here. There is SO much going on and so many amazingly friendly people. I get the most wonderful and sincere comments in the gallery, completely different from "The Big Sites". Anyway, It's wonderful to meet you and hope you enjoy learning your new skill.
