View Full Version : Hi there from Scotland
04-05-2010, 07:47 AM
Hi Everyone, I am new to the forum and thought I would introduce myself.
I am a wife, mother and recently a granny. Aaron, my 1 year old grandson is a wee darling.
I have been doing things digital for over 6 months, before that I made traditional paper crafts and cards to sell.
I have taken part in a couple of digi scrap designers contests and have learned masses in the last couple of months. Not quite got a store yet but I think I'll be ready soon.
In the meantime, I design printables, creat digi stamps and clipart and have just become a CTM for one of my fellow designer contestants!!
What a great way to get down to some serious scrapping. :)

Hi, Alison! Scotland is such a beautiful country. In fact, it was the inspiration for a kit I just made for a design contest. There's a link to the freebie (until Sunday) download on my blog - I'd love to get your opinion of the kit :)

I have been to your blog and downloaded your kit. It really captures the essence of the Highlands. I was so impressed by your metal elements!!! and the colours are perfect.
Well done and best of luck with the competition.:)

Hello and Welcome to DST! It's great to have you here.

I'm so glad you like the kit, Alison. I'd love to see what you do with it!
The pictures were all from a trip I took about 20 years ago. I have done a bit of traveling and seen a lot of beautiful places in God's amazing creation, and many of them are in your country. I think my trip to Scotland may have been the inspiration for me to learn how to play the bagpipes :). Someday I hope to visit again.

Thank you to everyone for warmly welcoming me. You can play the bagpipes Kate! Awesome!! I have heard they are one of the hardest instruments to play. ( I never learned to play an instruments, except maybe the cymbols at school! lol)

Yes, they are a hard instrument to play. I used to be fairly good, but I haven't played them in so long that I don't have the breath for them anymore. I can pick up my practice chater, though, and play the songs. I've started practicing again, though, so hopefully I'll be able to play again soon. I'm not sure my neighbors will be happy :)
