I love digital scrapbooking and reading. I enjoy skiing, sailing, and hiking. Oh, and I've lost 70lbs since Andrea was born. I have about 45 more to go.

What were your scrapping goals for March and did you meet them? Yes, I believe I kept up with my current year of scrapbooking and got quite a few 07 pages done. I don't feel like I did enough though. I would love to get further with 07.

What are your scrapping goals for April? Keep up with this years and get more of 2006/2007 done.

Anything special happening in April? We are buying my grandmother's house. We won't move into it, because it is too far from where we work. We are already fixing it up to get it ready to rent. The next couple weekends are going to be spent painting Sad

Tell us about yourself: I have been married for 10 years this past Feb. I started scrapping at the end of 2001 and I don't have a lot to show for it.

What were your scrapping goals for March and did you meet them? I hadn't scrapped in probably a year and went to a crop in Feb. I got really motivated and made about 15 different layouts in that month. Last month my goal was to organize all my scrapping stuff and get a table for our big master closet where I will be able to keep all my stuff out without it getting disturbed by the kids. I did get all that done!

What are your scrapping goals for April? I don't really have a goal, but I would like to do at least 5 LOs, hopefully more

Anything special happening in April? Not really, but I am getting my new Rebel XTi sometime today!

SO/BF: DH is also 24

Children/ages: Little Kaylee is due to arrive on April 30th - she's our first!

Paper or Digital? Paper

Tell us about yourself: I love to read - fiction books are my favorite. I also love to do things outside, like hike, fish, go on picnics, go on walks, etc. I'm a hospital social worker, and I work part-time - I really like my job.

What were your scrapping goals for March and did you meet them? Ha! I didn't really have any goals for March - my work schedule was crazy. Usually I just work 2-3 days/week, but it was 4-5 days in March, and I was 8 months pregnant, so scrapping took the back burner last month. Sad I did make a few handmade cards as thank-yous though, but no work on LOs.

What are your scrapping goals for April? I want to finish a LO that I started on a while ago, and I'm about half-way finished with it. I also want to get a rolling drawer organizer for my scrapping stuff so it doesn't take up space all over my house anymore! I'd love to do more LOs, but I go in and out of these super nesting modes, and with the baby due in 3 weeks, I just have no idea what I'll actually get done.

Anything special happening in April? Hopefully Kaylee will be born! She's due on the 30th, but I'm hoping she comes a little early. I'm finally full-term at 37 weeks, so any day now would be just fine!

Show us your favorite LO from March: don't have one...

Tell us about yourself: I work part-time as a photographer for "Picture People" I just started there and I am so excited. Other than that, I enjoy being able to be home most of the time with my son. I love watching him grow and learn something new every day.

What are your scrapping goals for April? Work more on his 1st year, his birthday isn't until July but it'll be here before I know it, plus I will have tons to do for his party as it gets closer, so I want to get as much scrapping done as possible beforehand.

Name: Gwen
SO/BF: Rich
Children/ages: Andrew (6.5), Jordan (4.5), Natalie (2), baby due in July
Paper or Digital? both but mostly paper
Tell us about yourself: I'm a SAHM to three crazy kids, and I somehow got myself into sewing in the past month which means I'm scrapping less. But I need to find the best groove to get in so I can do both and not feel behind. I also have a side business making custom photo cards, but it's been slow going.

What were your scrapping goals for March and did you meet them? My goals were to finish Jordan's professional picture book (nope, didn't do it), do five pages in Natalie's professional picture book (nope, didn't do it), do the swap cards (yes, did that!), and something else that I can't remember but I think I did whatever that was. Lol

What are your scrapping goals for April? Swap cards are next on my list, I really want to get pages done for Natalie's professional picture book, and I just caught up on Jordan's today (so that is a goal met, in my mind).

Anything special happening in April? Not really. DH is leaving for a full month at the end of the month, so that's a huge deal here. But I don't have anything else out of the ordinary happening.

Show us your favorite LO from March: I only did two layouts in March (ack!) so this would be my favorite of the two.
