    It's been a long, long time since I've been here! Some of you may know me as Leah or paperboutique. I recognize some of my favorite names still here :)

    Lots of changes since I was here last...kids have grown (more) - I have an "official" adult child as of this month, Sydney turned 18. Livia is 16.5, both girls are driving, and Ethan is still my sweet boy in the body of a teenager.
    I'm divorced. I went back to university and got 2 degrees. And now, I have my dream job teaching! I've taught Kindergarten and now Grades 1 and 2 combined.

    Lots has changed yes, but not my passion for photography and digital scrapbooking. I have waited for years to get back here. And now here I am!
    Looking forward to reconnecting with some familiar faces, meeting new ones, and scrapping together :)

    (looks like I need to change my siggie)

    Hey Leah! I remember you! So awesome that you are coming back to play with us. Glad that you have your dream job. My kiddos have grown up, too. Olivia is almost 23 and Daniel is almost 15. What happened to the babies? LOL Looking forward to hanging out again and seeing your layouts in the gallery!
