    Hi again! I'm still on the FANniversary high too! :cloud9 I seriously wouldn't have known from your gallery that you were completely new to digi and googling as you were going!
    I haven't used the Project Life app myself but i know Sahlin Studios has some good blog posts on it - you sound like you can manage the basics of adding cards and photos (but this post may be useful if you haven't read it) and have the Over app so you've most likely learnt the stuff in here (but just in case!) and there are a few other ideas for adding text and recolouring cards or items if they do not quite suit your photos as well. And i love this post because sometime i want big photos but my pocket template design doesn't really have space for it so learning about using the same photo across multiple pockets rocked my world!
    Glad to see you're exploring the Pad - inspiration abounds here and it really is a fun place to hang out (in between trips to Disney :giggle)

    (Oh and hi i'm Justine, I'm from Down Under like Ona above here; nice to meet you again!)

    Thanks for the additional links @bellbird
    Will definitely check them out. I had come across the post on using other journal cards in the PL app, while doing the recipe challenge. But will definitely check the links out. I’ve been poking around the forum and galleries quite a bit. It’s great.

    Well Welcome, and I am always late to help out, but that is what is wonderful about the Pad, everyone is so friendly, and willing to help out!
    Im Barbara and I started paper scrapping in 1991 then about 2012ish I tried digital on a dare, lol, so enjoyed getting to play and not have to clean up! BUT I do still get my fingers dirty with inks, paint, papers. I love doing Hybrid! Which you might find you would like too!? One good thing with digital is you can print print and print again! If you are interested we do a Pocket Letter (PL) every month which is Hybrid! We pick a couple themes each month. Get a partner, create our project with that theme and snail mail it to our partner, which means you get one too! Happy Mail Day!
    Here is the one getting decided on RIGHT now if you are interested!?

    Thanks. I’m a big kid at heart. Disney makes my heart so happy. The avatar is from the Disney game Tsum Tsum. There was a Japanese site a couple years ago, where we could create our own image. But unfortunately I no longer can find it. The site was in Japanese and not sure if it was only for a certain length of time. So I’ve been hanging on to this one and saving it everywhere.
