Newbie here, nice to meet everyone!

Hi ladies! I have been lurking around here for the last month or so and decided to introduce myself and join in the fun. I absolutely love looking through the old posts on this thread and seeing all the great LOs. I recognize a few ladies and look forward to getting to know the rest of you soon.

A little about myself, I am 23 and my DH and I are expecting our first in a few weeks. I graduated from college in December and I am fortunate enough to be able to take my time in regards to starting work. So basically I have lots of time on my hands lately. I scrapbooked a little in high school and early in my pregnancy I was flipping through some of my old stuff and it inspired me to start again. I am the kind of person who is terrible at keeping photos, they almost always eventually get tossed. So when I started taking some belly shots and getting U/S pics I decided to get back into the swing of things and the old passion for scrapbooking is rekindled. When I scrapbook, those photos and memories never get lost. I would consider myself a novice in terms of all the different techniques but I am building on my supplies and skills.

Sorry about the long intro, I'm just excited I guess. I am also running out of photos to scrap so I need my baby out soon so I can start taking countless shots of him.

Hi Andrea! I, too, am a new poster around here. Congrats on the little boy (in a couple weeks!). DH and I (also 23) are expecting our first, a little girl, in June. I've gotten so excited about her coming and wanted to get SOMETHING started for her in preparation, so I decided to pre-make her scrapbook. It's been so much fun so far, and a great way to make me not so ancy to go through that whole nesting thing so early, haha.

Hurray for Minnesotans. I'm 2.5 hours southwest of the Twin Cities (in Iowa).

Sounds like a great time to get back into scrapbooking. Congrats on the coming baby and welcome!

Thanks for the welcome everyone. I will put up some LOs soon. I lost the cable that connects my camera to my computer so I need to buy a new one in order to upload anything.

Gwen - We like Kaelan Michael for a name (it is pronounced like Caleb with a N instead of a B).
