    Hello Ladies!
    My name is Sami Brown (soon to be Bullock). My screen name was demonmother. I used to have an account here many, many moons ago. Then life happened. I moved from Loa Utah to Twin Falls Idaho, Got divorced, moved back to Utah, found someone new, and had a baby. I am friends on Facebook with a few of you. You may remember my mom Patty Webb. She was a designer here years ago. I was a CT for Southern Creek Designs, Alexis Designs and a few others but my brain won't let me remember there names. lol. Here are a couple layouts I did for them.

    So lets get to who I am now. I am a stay at home mom for a minute. I have 3 beautiful children. Patrick 14 years old, Amanda 11 years old (these two live with there dad) and my whoops surprise you can still get pregnant 1 and a half old son George. He is the light of my life right now and you will see lots of him. He had a rough start coming into this world but is doing wonderfully now. I can't help but smile every time I look at him.
    I am in need of a good free program that I can make layouts with. I have GIMP downloaded on my laptop but am not quiet sure how to use it. Is there another program that is easier to use? Or where can I go to get tutorials?
    Thank you Ladies. I am so excited to be scraping again.

    I looked before I posted this thread for my old Gallery and could not find it. Then after I posted it I found it. LOL isn't that how life happens. Here is a link to that Gallery.

    And of course this wonderful site has many opportunities for sales which is a great way to build your stash.
    Besides the discount on the New Releases, there's the First Sunday of the month $1 sale, every Tuesday the $2 specials, and beginning on the 25th of each month there is the Happy Hour $1 sale. Also check out individual designers' blogs/FB pages etc. They often offer freebies and discounts.
    All GREAT ways to build your stash :)

    Nice to meet you! Welcome back! A good thing to do if your short on money and boy we all know how that is is to check out some of the designers blogs especially around the first week in the months because alot of them participate in blog hops and offer free mini kits and such. Look in the chat section I think it is and all the designers site info is posted in a thread there where you can follow their blog newsletters and all.

    Like Kiana, I have some free minikits as well. Mostly 2 per month, but you need to get hopping, to get them all.
    Just follow the link to my blog and you'll find them. :)

    And, well, I guess life never settles... ;) But sometimes the river is nice and calm, before you get to a waterfall again. ;)

    Your freebies are ALWAYS must haves! And I just love that "nice and calm before you get to the waterfall" LOL...Life is definitely like that!
