    Hi everyone!
    My name is Jan, aka GodBlessAmerica. I am a 64 year old grandma of 8 (7 girls and 1 boy) and great grandma to an adorable little 6 month old girl, named Dakota June.
    We live on a farm in Kentucky, but are in the process of retiring, selling the farm and moving to California to be near our youngest daughter.

    Due to life and health issues I have not scrapped in years. I opened Photoshop on my old Dell laptop and was sooooooo lost. I will install CS5 on my MacBook this week, but might have to upgrade my RAM. I looked in my gallery and my last layout was posted in 2012.
    No wonder I am a fish out of water. Hello to all my old scrappy friends and I look forward to meeting new ones as well.
    Santana in this layout is the Mama of my great grand girl. Santana was always my favorite subject to scrap, because she was a little pistol. How time flies.
    A special hello to Kim Jensen, who's creative team I was on for a few years. Still love all my Kim goodies.

    Welcome back Jan.
    I hope you get your software sorted out so you can get stuck into some scrapbooking again.

    Welcome Back. The new site has so many great features. You'll come to love them in no time. One thing you can do is type the @ sign and a letter or two and a popup menu will come up with all the TLP user names. if you click one - it "tags" them so they will get an alert that you are "talking" specifically to them. Try it next time you give a shout to someone! It's fun. I'll tag you with your username and it should show up in your alerts - top left of your screen when you are logged into the forum!

    @GodBlessAmerica :)
