Hi, I'm Elizabeth from Australia. I live in new South Wales near Newcastle. I have only been scrapbooking for a few months and I have heaps to learn. I love to look at how others put together a layout, I am never sure if I have too much or too little. I love photography!!!and my Photoshop program. I am hoping to be able to post a couple of layouts this month.

Cheers Elizabeth

Any other Aussies out there?

Hello there and welcome to GS! Yes, we do have some lovely Aussies here. ;)

You say you like to look at others' layouts to see how to create your own...have you tried a scraplift? We have a scraplift challenge (http://forums.gingerscraps.net/showthread.php?23475-Oct-2013-Scraplift-Challenge) here every month where you try to recreate someone else's layout and it has helped me in organizing my layouts and just for a creativity pump sometimes! If you're still learning, all of the monthly challenges (http://forums.gingerscraps.net/forumdisplay.php?459-Challenge-Yourself) can help you learn more techniques; I know they helped me tons when I was just starting out! Plus, you get points and win prizes for completing challenges, so you can also boost your digi stash. ;)

Don't forget to check out the welcome wagon (http://forums.gingerscraps.net/forumdisplay.php?499-The-GingerScraps-Welcome-Wagon) and get all your freebies! Hope to see you around the forums and your layouts in the gallery! :)

Welcome here at GS Elizabeth, here are some gingerbreads of your country - - - and I would love to be one of them, but Iīm only a little german cookie ;)

Letīs go and scrap, maybe you donīt know it, but the biggest advantage of scrapping is: there is never too much, and never to less: it must be pleasant to you! Canīt wait to see your pages,

Melly

We're all delighted to have you join us here! You'll find this to be the happiest and most friendly place to be! Need help? Just holler! Someone will be there to offer a hand.

Australia is at the top of my list of countries to visit! My DH took photos when he was there.. but I don't think they quite do it justice. And.. I really want a wallaby digging in my pocket like it did to him! They told him to just let it. How awesome is that??
