I hope everyone is as excited as this as I am! Irene did an awesome job putting us together and now we can enjoy it!!

We all love comments and such so please make an effort to check out each others galleries and when a member posts up a LO let's all check it out!

If you have a LO you would like to share please put the link in your post(instead of a general can you look at my gallery) That way we can talk about your latest project together!
------------------------- ------------------------
**Due to the amount of scrappers who want to be in an active support group the following requirments must be met in order to remain a member...

You must be able to submit at least 2 items per month; you can always submit more, but the minimum for active membership is 2. These can be any item - digital, paper, hybrid - 1pg, 2pg, altered item, minibook, etc.

You must also remain active on this thread and in posting critique to hold member status. If you have not posted to the board for 30 days, your spot will be given to someone else. If at any time you would like to leave the group, just let us know! No hard feelings, we understand that life gets crazy sometimes, but we would appreciate the courtesy in letting us know.

We will also be doing challenges which in the past seem to have been flops for whatever reason in here. Challenges will be for a month which is plenty of time(IMHO) for a support group member who wishes to be active and particpate to achieve the challenge.

---If anyone has any issue with me please speak up .. I want this group to be fun and a place where we as scrappers can enjoy ourselves and grow as friends.

------------------------- -------------------------
I hope to have challenges every now and again. There will not be a time limit on these as I know we all have lives(or most do anyway hahaha) If you chose to participate in a challenge simply post up the link when finished for us to see!


------------------------- ----------------------
If you have any questions or concerns at all please do not hesitate to pm me or Chelle!

Also feel free to add me to your friends list

------------------------- -------------------------

Let's start off by learning a little bit about each other(thanks to Chelle for the suggestion!)

1. Your name / what you prefer to be called
2. Where you're from
3. Birthday
4. # of years scrapbooking
5. DH? Boyfriend? Girlfriend? How long?
6. Kids? Names & Ages
7. Pets? What kind? Names & Ages
8. What do you do for a living?
9. Favorite scrapbooking technique?
10. What would you like to work on most?
11. What is your favorite scrap subject?
12. Tell us one fun fact about yourself.

Good Morning ladies! I am so excited to get to know all of you. My name is Andrea and I live in Oklahoma. I am a native Texan but moved to Oklahoma 4 yrs. ago following DH's job. I've been married for 13 yrs and we have 4 children....an 8 1/2 yr old girl, an almost 5 yr old boy, and b/g twins that will be 3 in September. I have been a SAHM since our first was born. I am a speech pathologist and probably will return to work once the twins are in school. I started scrappin after my oldest was born but that quickly got packed away when the next 3 came along LOL. Just within the past 6 months have I really started scrappin again.

OK, I've rambled enough for now Off to look at galleries. Andrea...Mom & scrapper of an 8 yr old, a 4 yr old, and 2 yr old b/g twins!

Hi everyone! My name is Tina and I am from Illinios. For the next few weeks, I will only be on here a little because my daughter (15) is keeping me EXTREMELY busy with softball!! We have a tournament every weekend so my scrap time is very limited right now! I do try to be on here at least once a day. I can't wait to get to know all of you and look at all of your work! Happy Scrapping!!!! Tina

hi fellow groupies. I was just added this a.m. I'm from the state of WA and have only been scrapping for 1-1/2 years (late starter). I envy you ladies who have started at a younger age than I did. I'm not scrapping right now (and typing with left hand - not fun), due to hand surgery. One more month and then I can get back to creating.... I do have a lot of lo's from my Italy trip to post...just have to fuzz out DH as he's soooo private. I'm taking an early retirement end of June and have lots of projects in mind. I've been married to a wonderful man for 40 years and have two children (32 and 24), and a nice DIL. Have three grand-puppies we occasionaly sit for. I'm looking forward to seeing your work and getting help/feedback from you all. Add me to your friends if you like. Have a good Monday. Diana

Good morning! I am a late comer to the group as well. Thanks for squeezing me in.

I'm Kari. I live in Wisconsin with my DH and 18 month old daughter, Bennet. I'm due with #2 (gender unknown) in Sept. I've been scrapping for about 11 years now- but my style is continually evolving.

Regina- Favor. Could you add our real names next to our screen names in the 1st post? It would help me get to know everyone quicker.
