    2. Hey, Trisha, I too am taking the LSN class and I too am from Pittsburgh. Small world, eh? I went to sign in and your sign in was right there at the top of page nine.

    3. Hi Debbie! It is a small world. I went back to the forum and read your post. You really will find lots to scrapbook about. I live in Wilkinsburg and work for a law firm down town. What about you? Do you have a blog? I love my blog, it's mostly for posterity, and I'm always days behind. Anyway, it's wonderful to meet someone from Pittsburgh who also scrapbooks through the Internet.
