Welcome, Sue. Glad you found us here at GoDigital. Lots of fun things happening. Check out the challenges is you would like some inspiration. I am fairly new to digi-scraping also. Started at the end of last year. If you need a bit of help figuring things out, just ask and one of us Legacy Ladies or Admin will try to answer your questions.
A great thread to watch is the Daily Download. There is some type of small mini, papers, wordart, etc offered for free for that day only. Be sure to register in the shop so you can download them. The forum and shop registration is separate so you need to register at both place.
Another thread to check out under the Daily Download section is the 2 stickies... Daily Download Rewind program [how it works] and sign up for Daily Download Rewind program. In this last thread, you sign up and 'earn' a free DD kit for reaching certain goals. Be sure to sign up that thread so all your posts will count.
And if you haven't checked out the section "Just For Newbie Digi-scrappers", do check it out. Tells you how to post to threads, add to the gallery and then into posts, etc. Lots of good information there.
Again, Welcome to GDS...
