Welcome to CREATIVE ADDICTIONS
We are a copyright conscious group constantly seeking permissions to give our members a wide variety of Artists to choose from in working with PSP.
Below is just a simple introduction of the many things we have to offer you here Guests please note that not all the sections of the forum are open for you to view.
However we hope the information given here will encourage you to become a member of our group.
As a Guest you are able to view a small portion of our group, but we hope that a small 'taster' will be enough to whet your appetite and you will decide to join us.
Once your account has been validated, please pop over to the NEW MEMBERS INTRODUCTIONS
board and introduce yourself, so we can all welcome you to CA
Dont forget to add your birthday/anniversary to the BIRTHDAY BOARD
just add your name to the relevant months thread
This is where members can leave each other birthday presents on their special day.
Please start yourself a new topic in Me and My Tag Preferences
Tell us what name you prefer on tags, your tag likes & dislikes, where you're from, how you found us and what made you decide to join CA.
Its so much easier for others to make you tags if you tell us what you like/dislike.

If you're new to this type of forum, or just need a helping hand in the first few weeks to find your way around you can be partnered with a CA Buddy.
Sometimes its easier and less daunting to have one person you feel you can turn to with any questions. Everyone here is very friendly and always willing to help, but it can seem a bit daunting to be the newbie ~ we want you to feel comfortable and at home from your very first day, so if you would like a CA Buddy add your name to the list.
If you would like to be a CA Buddy, add your name to list too.
As we are a copyright compliant forum, posted tags will be deleted
1. The correct © information is not added or it is not clear on the tag
2. The artist used is not on our Artist Allowed list, which means we do not have their permission to use their art here.
3. The artist used is included on our Artist Not Allowed list ~ this means the artist has expressly stated we are not
to use their art here.
This is a definate NO-NO
