My name is Carla, some call me Mamacita Carlita or Chico Mama. Anyway, I live in Chicago, am an avid picture taker, usually of the band that I sort of manage, thoroughly enjoy my part-time job as a trainer/coach, love my cat, Sami (of whom I also have many pics-just right for scrapping), and, have two wonderful nephews that like to ham it up. I'm looking forward to participating in, at least, some of the many activities that are sponsored here. I guess that's it, for now.

Welcome to GS, hope you like it enough here to make it your digihome! Everyone is super friendly and I personally love our challenges. They've really helped me grow from a beginning scrapper to knowing ins and outs of Photoshop and all the fun digi tricks. Hope you join us for some of them sometime. :)
