    Hello! My sister pointed me in this direction. (It just occurred to me I don't know her username here, but I assume she's around here somewhere.) I'm not much of a digiscrapper; I'm mostly a physical scrapper, but I'm starting to get into some hybrid creation, so I'm mostly here to learn -- and to be inspired by the challenges.

    I'm a married, homeschooling ("unschooling," really) mama of 5, ranging in age from 18 down to 3 as of this writing, and when I'm not creating things with paper I enjoy reading, research, theology, holistic nutrition, and natural living.

    I do have a question about the gallery requirements. If I'm doing a hybrid layout, does 50% of my layout have to be TLP, or just 50% of the digital portion?

    Hi Rachel! Welcome to the Lilypad, so glad you are joining us! As for the gallery question, I will defer to Julie or Laura @mrs2a50 @lmccandless.

    Lovely to 'meet' you, Rachel! Welcome to TLP - Heather has tagged the right people to answer your question, i'm not sure how hybrid relates to the 50% either but i think this is a great place for inspiration and learning - if you haven't already checked out the Learning Pad & the Hybrid Pad, they might be good places to start as well as the Hybrid category of the gallery but the challenges every month are great for inspo as well! Looking forward to seeing some of your pages and glad your sister could point you in our direction - feel free to tag me or any of the Pollys (Creative Team) (just stick @ in front of my or any of their usernames like @HeatherB did above) if you have anyother questions or need a hand finding your way around :)

    Welcome Rachel. Fellow homeschooler here too! I have 18 down to 6. I lean more toward the Classical, Charlotte Mason style homeschooling.

    Can't wait to see your hybrid. I love seeing what people create with digi and paper.

    @a2jc4life - welcome Rachel! For the Gallery requirements, it would be 50% of your entire layout that would need to be TLP

    Hi Rachel! I'm in Virginia too, Fredericksburg. And my kids have always unschooled. They're 13, 17, and nearly 20 (next month). Welcome! I was a paper scrapper from childhood in the 1980's until I discovered digital scrapbooking in 2005. :D

    Welcome to TLP Rachel! I love to dabble in hybrid fun stuff too! I don't make layouts with my digi supplies, but I do love to print papers to rip up and elements to cut out and glue down and paint over in my art journal. I'm also obessed with making stickers, so if you need any help with hybrid stuff... give me a shout! I'm a Silhouette user, so I can definitely help with questions about that too!

    Thank you all! (And thank you, Julie, for the clarification on percentages of layouts.) I don't know if my sister uses her real name here and, just in case, I don't want to "out" her ;) so I'll ask her to pop in when she gets a chance.
