2013 June Challenge

June....and another inspiration challenge from Tim Holtz!

First Steps - Final Wrap-Up

This is my last 'chapter' for the First Steps blog.  So far we talked about where and how to get started, getting organized (A MUST), duplicating and scanning rare photos (A MUST), Journaling and a hint of digital.

First Steps - Conquer & Divide - Get Organized

In the very beginning intro on this series, I said I would give suggestions and MUST DOs!!!  This is a MUST.
