After years of fiddling with Adobe Elements 5, I finally upgraded to 11. I don't have any use for CS6, I'm by no means a designer, at all. I'll never claim to be but I do miss using Pugly Pixel's blog accessories. After upgrading to a different computer, v5 would slow down my computer and I felt limited to use it. I rarely spend money on software, but since it's something I've really missed doing, I think it's worth it. Plus I trust the blogging ladies who are endorsing Elements.
I feel like this is one of the things I really felt holding me back. Once you have the tools to blog, it really helps you create, even if it's glitter fonts (!!!)
You can get Elements 11 here.
