Can't wait to get started!! I should intro myself:

Hi ladies, my real name is Laura and I'm trying to participate in a few more forums this year as I'm currently not working and love all the arts. I am a mother of 2, grandmother of 1 and married 30 yr. I am by education an Engineer and spent my career in Quality Assurance / Control and I find myself looking for a new job at age 53 and not an easy thing to do.

I live in Indiana and we have about 12" of snow right now. My other endeavors include playing my flute in the local community band and volunteer as assitant historian (scrapping) for the band to document our journey. I am a Christian and strong believer. My primary artistic love is quilting, but paper crafting is very similar, only using paper as your base and much quicker satisfaction, lol. I like to paint, crochet, and I try to tat (not very good yet, but I keep at it). I do machine embroidery designs (not so much anymore), but since I can't do them by hand due to eye issues, I use digitization to achieve embroidery goals. I'm a typical engineer, jack of all trades, master at none. I love it all and there are not enough hours in the day.

Enough about me. If you would like to add me to your friend lists, please invite me so we can get to know each other more. I look forward to getting to know all of you.

This sounds fun, means I will have to take a picture everyweek but I am sure I can do it. Never heard of Project Life albums but I can make my own LOs Sign me up.



Great. Just try to remember to PM your info...so that when you win a prize I can mail it to you! If you google "Project Life" you'll get some good examples. You can buy a kit but I am going to try to hodge podge mine together. I recently purchased a Sn@p Simple Stories kit that I am going to use.

How you put your weekly LO together is up to you! This is more about getting it done. Week by week.



Am using Snap collectio to it really jumped out to me when I was looking for paper

I'll go next: I am a newly-turned-40 year old mom of 1 amazing almost-9 year daughter named Kylene. My husband is retired from the US Air Force, at which time it was my turn to head back to work after being a stay at home mom for about 6 years while he finished up in the air force. It took me a long time to find work - I'm a teacher - but finally accepted a job with the Dept of Defense in PUERTO RICO!! So in August, we moved to Fort Buchanan in PR. It's been a crazy change and our daughter has had a hard time adjusting to being away from family and friends (more than we expected) but she's a trooper and we try to keep her busy with trips and island adventures.

I am now a Reading Specialist / READ180 teacher at Antilles Middle School where I get to teach kids the love of books, and to read English better. It's fantastic. They teach me Spanish; I teach them reading - most already are bilingual. It's my dream job - I love books!! When we moved to England, I shipped 3000+ lbs of books there and back.

And England is where I began my scrapbooking obssession. We lived there from 2004-2007, and hooked up with a group of CTMH ladies. Hook - Line - and Sinker. And I found scrapbook.com - it shipped APO for reasonable prices. And I found the AGC...way back in 2006...and discovered some really great ladies.

As your "hostess" I'm going to participate but not the drawing. I want to share my 52 weeks project with you but honestly, the prizes are coming from my stash that really needs to be pared down even more due to space issues.

So, welcome aboard and get ready to have some fun. Although the journey is important, for us the end is equally so!!

I host the Ugly paper challenge here http://www.scrapbook.com/forums/showtopic.php?tid/15828... Where I swap your name with someone else and you send 2 ugly papers and 1 ugly embellie to someone to try to stump them. Then you take the papers and embellie that you get and try to make a nice layout with them.

I am 51 and just retired from a 30 year career in education.
DH is semi-retired (works 2-3 days a week). We are planning on traveling quite a bit.
We are season ticket holders to Texas A and M football and followed the team to all the games this year. We plan on continuing that, it was a BLAST!
We have a son that is 26 and lives in Bryan, Texas- he is an Aggie, also.
We love being empty nesters and are looking forward to my retirement.
We are going to Cozumel on January 7 for 9 days to do some diving. We try to go there a couple of times a year and I am going with 3 friends on a 7 day scrapbooking cruise in February.

I am really looking forward to this project to chronicle my first year of retirement. My last official day on my contract is tomorrow!

Good Morning!!
I know many of you already from over the years, and in other challenges! Love to see all of you and continued friendship! Welcome and hello to those I do not know (yet), looking forward to new friendships and so on.

I am 41, presently disabled. Sadly I refractured and old fracture in my ankle and have been through murder with the healing process. I have had 7 surgeries in the last 16 months. One more surgery to go. My ankle is fused together now. Presently I have pins and metal in my leg/ankle (and for the 3rd time), this is why I have been MIA from scrapbooking world.
I miss it so much and cannot wait to get back to it and so on. It's getting close though!!!

On a good note............. I am married to the love of my life Matt for two years now this February 4th, but we've been together for 15 years. I have three sons from previous marriage, and he has one son from previous marriage. I have two granddaughters that are my whole world!! They will most likely be the focus of my scrapping! LOL. My husband is a corrections officer. He too is my world, along with our sons, but honestly the girls take the cake! LOL.

This January I will be returning to college full time taking online courses to change my career. Before my injury I was waitressing. Don't think I will be going back to that! So my new major is accounting, I should finish that in a year. I am also going to go for Paralegal, and maybe Office Administration. I may stop at Paralegal though.

Karen, a sn@p album is a 2ring version of a SMASHjournal. It's a cool way to do some quick pages
