    My name is Robin and I live in Austin, Texas. I have been married 25 years and have 4 kids (3 in college and a rising sixth grader). I've homeschooled all of them but now that I'm down to one, I am hoping I'll have more time to scrap. I've been posting a few pages in my gallery for just a month or so, but I recently found the Challenge Pad and the Learning Pad. I don't know why I haven't seen them before, but I'm super excited. I find challenges to be exactly what I need to learn new things and honestly to push me to scrap when I have mojo issues. I really like the way these challenges look and am excited to play. As much as I like the looks of the challenges, I'm blown away by all the topics in the Learning Pad!! Thank you so much for sharing your wisdom, skills, and experience!!!

    Yay...another Central Texan! Welcome, Robin! @mocamom We're about an hour apart. I go to Austin every month for my doctor appointment. I've been married 26 years and have 3 children. I homeschooled for 2 years when I was working from home, but we decided it just wasn't for us, so all of my children went to Catholic school instead.

    Oldest DD graduated from college in December and is prepping for medical school. Second DD is a Junior at A&M, and my 13-year-old son is going into 8th grade. Hubby is an architect, and I'm an IT Administrator (though I was an insurance litigation negotiator/claims manager for over a decade).

    I've been a Scrapbooker since 1997 and currently do hybrid (though all of TLP's awesome monthly challenges have had me doing strictly digital this year, but I'm dusting off my paper trimmer...lol).

    We're so glad you found us. The Lilypad is the best home in Digiland. The designers, store owner (Laura @lmccandless), admins (Nancy @NancyBeck & Julie @mrs2a50), creative team (the fabulous Pollywogs) and community are like no other (IMHO :) ).

    Glad you found the challenges and have jumped in. Can't wait to see your gallery creations! I would HIGHLY recommend checking out the various monthly subscriptions for sale in the shop. They are so amazing and an unbelievable value.

    We're a family here, so if you have any questions about anything, please don't be shy. Everyone loves to help!

    Whew... I think I covered just about everything. Welcome again, Robin!

    Welcome to the Pad, Robin! Are you doing your part to Keep Austin Weird? :) We lived in Houston for about 5 years and visited Austin when we could. Anyway, enjoy TLP. It's such a great place, and you've found the challenges and the learning Pads, so you're on your way!
