Can I join you guys?

I am hesitantly joining... I started buying scrapbooking supplies a few years ago but just now really started scrapbooking. its a little overwhelming all the things I want to do.... but first about me

Married 5 years to a wonderful hubby and we have a 14 month old little boy.
I work at a fabulous ribbon company, and my mom watches him during the day.
We are both very active in our church and have a faith in God...

I just finished my first scrapbook for dh for valentines day. it was just a small one though. (well i did a creative memories kit but after i gave it to him realized that it might not hold up to him with out protectors so i got a small 6X6 album to put the pages in) I will take pictures of this when I can.

My projects I want to do:
small pregnancy album
baby book- started
love scrapbook- (we really didnt have a wedding, so this would be about our whole relationship)
a small one for my mom higlighting her weightloss
a small one for my grandparents about baby
and finally one using pictures from my vacation to maine back in september....

Im hesitant to join because im not sure i can keep up with y'all!!! but if you'll have me i will try!!!

oh I think i want to try doing some of both- digi and paper

Hi!!! Of course you can join us!!

It is SO much fun! You will get through your list of projects, just take it one by one. I can't wait to see the album you made! I made dh an album a few years ago. It was fun. It was 6x6 and I really enjoyed doing it!

Welcome to the board! Don't feel pressured to "keep" up. Just post what you work on whenever you work on it. I take scrapping in spells and may go days or even weeks and work on nothing.

Oh, I'm a paper scrapper and I started out with several kit albums which helped me alot b/c all the stuff is included. You might start that way if you are overwhelmed.

Can't wait to see your style!

Welcome, welcome! So glad you joined us! We'd love to see your work, and don't feel like you have to meet a certain number of posts. Everyone on here scraps at different levels and times. We all know what it's like having kids and/or other life distractions that keep us from our hobbies. Wink

Welcome Laura! The more the merrier! I'm one of the hosts of this board, and *I* can't even catch up with everyone here sometimes. It's all good, really. This is a great board for sharing and learning, I love it!

You have a great plan, I can't wait to see what you create!

I am so glad you are joining us! Love the fact that you are open about your faith! I like you already! Biggrin I agree with everyone else, we are all different, but we have tons of fun here! I can't see your work b/c I only have net access at work, and I can't see photobucket pics. Sad
