    Hello dear people,


    My name is Emine Pala, almost 36 years old (december 3th). I am a mother to 2 beautiful girls; Alara 13 and Dilara 11 years old. Unfortunately my daughters don't live with me (long story).
    From origin I am Turkish, born and raised in the Netherlands. I started scrapbooking (traditional) back in 2005 till 2009. I was forced to stop scrapbooking. Everything I owned I gave away to someone who wanted to start scrapbooking. She still enjoys it, such a blessing to know you made the right decision at the time.

    I am telling my story (as short as possible, if it's too long forgive me ;)
    Because the reason I am starting scrapbooking and mostly digital/hybrid scrapbooking has such a huge meaning to me. I had to leave every layout/memory to my children behind.
    When I found my old blog, I was over the moon. Almost all my pages (not every unfortunately) and photo's, the stories I told were there. Pictures of my children.

    It almost feels like I found the memories I lost. Finding my identity back (strange right, but that's how I feel). Now I want to get back into my passion, scrapbooking. And I will make sure I wil back-up every photo, every memory and every layout on the internet too.

    It's a happy ending and I am looking forward to get to know you all better.
    Thank you for the warm welcome, before I even introduced myself.

    Kind Regards,

    Emine Pala

    Dear Debbie, thank you for your warm welcome. Ofcourse, we all have our own stories. That's not what I meant OOPS.
    I believe that every story/life matters. And worth sharing. Thank you, god bless you

    I did not mean anything by my comment and I am sorry if I was not clear. What I meant was that all stories can be difficult to tell but that is what scrapbooking is all about.

    Some pages can be private and never uploaded and then there are the pages to assist with feelings. We all have own reason and I hope that scrapbooking brings you joy.

    Thank you dear Carrie, Nice to meet you to. I do have a question though. Can I post my creations in the gallery eventhough it's all traditional scrapbooking right now? So you all can see my style?
