    Good morning!

    I am Karen Jennings and I heard about your site on MSNBC "New Business" on Sunday morning and was quite fascinated! I am a bit of a techie, and still quite willing to learn new stuff. I am a musician, lead vocalist for a 50's 60's band, "The Memories" ( we're on Facebook, if anyone wants to check us out... TheMemories.VA) and my other hobby is scrapbooking and card making.

    Currently, I am unemployed so, I have the time frame but not too much of cash resources, so I am wondering if this would be a project that I could pursue with help of course.. suggestions, on different types of scrapbooking templates that can be used in this hobby? Now, if it has already been done, that's fine too.

    That is about me in a "nutshell" and I am looking forward to working with members of this community!

    Thank you,

    Karen D. Jennings
