    Hi! I am new here. I have been a scrapbooker for what seems like forever. I joined the digi movement with Storybook and it changed my life. After being in a horrible car accident, I had to change careers so I decided to get a degree in Graphic Design, (just graduated last May)
    I am an empty nester to three wonderful kids and a "Grrrma" to three beautiful grandgirls.
    My dream is to be on a creative design team.
    Can't wait to jump back into my passion of scrapbooking!

    Welcome!. I lived in Iowa near Waterloo for about 9 years. Of course that was many years ago. This is a great place to be.

    That's so awesome that you went to school for graphic design! I look forward to seeing your pages in the gallery.

    And all I know of Iowa is I-80, and the cornfields :giggle

    Welcome to the pond! Pull up a pad and enjoy the water! Don't mind the glitter and paint splatters every where it just makes it more fun.

    Welcome! My hubby is also originally from very small town Iowa (as in he was related to half the town, which was less than 1 square mile in area) - very different from the suburban sprawl we live in here.

    well I ain't from Iowa, never been there...so many vowels in that state..bhahha..but I am from a small town in the middle of no where in New Mexico...which now that I type it has an abundant amount of vowels too...
    I dream of going back to school and really learning the ropes of graphic designs, and just learning! I so hope you find yourself comfy and happy here at the Lily Pad. there is an oldie but goodie blog post written by moi...as a kind of welcome wagon HERE, and it may help you. If you are lost or have any questions, ask, this is one friendly group of scrappers from the boss all the way across the POND! happy scrapping!
