I am using webtv and found this group--I am wondering how I can get to
this group from my computer. CAN ANYONE tell me how to do it?
I am new to scrapbooking--in fact, I have been invited to my first crop
on Saturday.
I have all kinds of scrapbook "stuff" but am at a loss at where to
start.
I have been trying to digital s***but I am slow at learning that too.
Also, What would you suggest I take to my first "crop"? I don't want to
go in fully loaded like I know what I am doing (because I don't) :( but
I don't want to go without enough stuff either.
I appreciate your help!!!
Thanks!
SherH

Hi Sher! Welcome to the group.  What do you take? Hum, pictures of course!
LOL.   I would take your basics: paper, tape, stickers, embellishments.  I
wouldn't take a lot of tools.  You might see what others takes so  you don't
have to take all of yours.  Then that way you can share the big tools.
Also, I've heard from others that its saves a lot of time and is easier of
you decide what you are planning to do while you are there.  Pick out the
pictures, papers, embellishments, etc.  That way you don't have to take
everything.  Hope this helps.

Hi Sher, welcome to the group. I read the group through Outlook Express.

How exciting to be going to your first crop. A lot of the people here make
page kits to take with them to crops. You pick out your pictures, papers and
embellishments and put them all together. Then when you get to the crop, you
have everything you need to complete your pages. I must admit that I don't
do this and I always end up taking too much with me and then forgetting
something I really need. I going to a crop at the end of the month, so I'm
going to sit down and make a few page kits to take with me.

Welcome to RCS!  I believe we have a couple computer gurus in here, and
hopefully they can help you access the group from your computer.  I use
Outlook Express for the newsgroup, personally.  You can also use Google
groups.

Your first crop...WOW!  I remember my first crop, and really enjoyed it.  I
highly suggest making up kits to take to your crop.  You simply put pics
with paper, cardstock, and embellishments and away you go.  That way, all
you have to take is your kits, adhesive, a few simple tools like a paper
cutter, scissors, etc and you're ready to scrap.
