Congratulations Mary!

And thanks for emailing me back.
I love doing stuff for my blog and trying new things. Once you get started with Photoshop you will be hooked, I promise you!
It's the best tool you can have to re-touch and fix your photos {even though if you are a "pro" withthe camera}, there are brushes, frames, so many "toys" in the digital world that you will love. You will be able to use your own photos for everything you want, your blog banner, avatar...
I bought my Somerset Life yesterday and indeed found your article! I think you should scan the photos and add them to the blog. Show off your wonderful work!

Warm regards,
