I'm a long time member on the adoption board but I really enjoy lurking on here too. I have gotten so many cute layout ideas from you talented girls and thought it time to start posting over here and sharing some of my stuff and scraplifting some of yours!!
I just read the guidelines for the scrap train and hopefully I can join the next round. I'll try better to not lurk and post. I left the boards for a bit b/c of some difficulities I was having from a failed adoption placement but I'm ready to join the land of the living again.
About me: My name is Kelly and DH and I are waiting to adopt our first child. We have been waiting now for what seems like forever and pray that God will send us the child we are meant to have so very soon. I am a teacher (1st grade).
I love to scrapbook but have never picked up much on digital scrapbooking. I was given Scrapbook Factory Deluxe software but just haven't joined the digital world yet. So, paper is my preference and I really like the textures and 3-D dimensions.
RIGHT NOW I KNOW, KNOW, KNOW THERE IS A CRICUT EXPRESSION MACHINE WAITING UNDER MY TREE!!!! I just can't hardly stand it. I just had a b'day (Turkey baby) and DH encouraged me to buy some of the carts. from Michael's Thanksgiving night for $29. I bought 3. I told him there was no reason to get them w/o a machine b/c I thought maybe he didn't get it and he just replied that we would pick up a machine after the holidays and to just get the carts. now b/c they are a good deal. I'm telling you- I'm getting a cricut!!!!
I also love to sew and do embroidery work. I have an embroidery machine and keep busy making bibs and burp cloths for all the teachers at school and for gifts.
I guess that is plenty about me. I look forward to getting to know you ladies better and sharing some of my scrap layouts. Hopefully, if I pay attention, mine will start looking as nice as the ones you all share!
