I THINK lesson #1 should have taken me about an hour to get through...but it was more like FOUR hours.
The next night, I repeated the lesson without looking at it and I was able to do a layout much more quickly the second time. This week I start on lesson #2.
I have been doing digital and hybrid scrapping for about a year - maybe more. But I wasn't doing it in PSE. I was just arranging digital elements in Word. And that works - but it is rather limited. So now I am trying to break into the more professional type software.
I'll keep you posted on my progress!
