Hi there Victoria,
You can plug your time machine drive in, and open it in Finder like a normal hard drive. Click the 'Backups.backupdb' folder, the name of your computer, and then scroll to the 'Latest' shortcut. Navigate your files and copy over what you need.
Let me know if you need any other assistance,
