You haven't met me yet so here goes. I'm shell. I'm 29 and a teacher in Mississippi. I've been interested in scrapping for a while but never actually done it. For the last month or so I've been looking at websites and pouring through this forum.
I have learned so much!!

Today, I did my first page. It's not great, but hey it's a start!
Anyway... here it is in case you're interested.

I think it's great for a first page! I really like the bling on the corners, to look like they're anchoring the mat down. I can't wait to see how you grow as a scrapper. Keep us updated!

Jalynne thank you so much!!! I'm pretty excited. I think it turned out pretty well. I hope so anyway. I love bling. I can't help it. Is your eye MAC? I love it! what products did you use?? I have an eye pic I'll put up for my avatar for now as well. No bling in it, but it's my fav.

KatieJo, thank you so much for the love! Yes, he's a hedgehog. This scrapbook is going to be about the two of them. One of my pages is going to explain how he got the name Popcorn lol
Long story short, he was balled up and popping. He is an albino, so it looked like popcorn popping and sounded like it top (he was hissing because he wasn't used to people yet). Now he doesn't hiss. He just looks at me like "please stop cleaning my stuff." lol He's so fun!!!
I am checking out your gallery now. I love your work!

Actually, no I didn't use MAC makeup, believe it or not. I believe for that one, I used Rimmel, L'Oreal and E.L.F. (Eyes Lips Face - it's department store quality for $1 each! I got it at K-Mart, of all places.) I'm not a makeup artist or anything...I was just playing around one day, and really liked the look. Normally, I wear no makeup at all...it was for a special occasion.

Wow thanks you guys for making me feel so welcome!! AND thanks for the compliments! I'm going to do another page this weekend I hope. Things are so hectic. ugh.

Jalynne, if you like MAC but not the price try NYX. Everyone I've introduced to it has been thoroughly happy.
