I have always been a picture nut and had my pictures in boxes and boxes. My mom had her's in old magnetic books that filled up several large book shelves. I started in paper scrapping and started selling Creative Memories then I switched to D.O.T.S. I too found myself with closets full of paper supplies and no time to work on my paper books. Then along came digital cameras...... I just couldn't justify getting one for several years, because there was no cost effective way of printing the pics. BUT, over the next few years, I bought myself a Kodak Digital Camera. I then bought my daughter one, cause they were stationed in Germany for 3 years and I wanted a way to get pictures of my grandbabies. Finally, I heard a little about digital scrapbooking so I went to a Comp USA and looked at the software. WOW, this was amazing. I finally bought "Software Delux" and hated it! It just wasn't user friendly, to suit me. Some how I stumbled across SBM. I believe I had googled for digital scrapbooking and found SBM. It was a new program and I remember playing with the trial version. I also found my way to the forum, which is not something I have ever gotten into in the pasts. Needless to say, the rest was history...... I used the trial for a few hours then bought it! I even printed an 8x10 with the banner and all, just to get a feel for the quality.
Yes, SBM and this forum has been my home for the past 2 years now. I can not image ever being without my MAX or my MAX Family! I have learned SO SO much! And I'm still learning new things all the time.
