    Yah, so I don't think I ever properly introduced myself. Thanks, @GrahamLiketheCracker for tagging me....

    My name is Liz or Elizabeth in real life. My mom always hated nicknames for Elizabeth. Not sure how she feels about my "digi" name.

    I have 5 kids. 3 bio. 2 adopted. I homeschool them all. I live in the mountains of Western NC & I've been married for 16 years to a most awesome man. I enjoy playing piano and running....in my spare time (ha!).Then of course I have this template designing business that is like my oasis at the end of the day. I seriously love making templates & digi-scrapping.

    And I'm so excited to be here!

    Hi Liz - I am new here too, but I have several other things in common with you. I live in Durham, NC. I have 2 bio sons and 1 adopted daughter from China. Where are your adopted children from?

    Both from China. Our little girl is from Shanghai and our boy is from Xuzhou. We travel to Durham every few months for Dr. Appointments. My son is deaf and has a Cochlear Implant. :)

    Very Cool. My daughter is from Guangdong Providence, almost as far south as you can get in China.

    Hi all!! So...let's see. I switched from paper to digital scrapping in 2005 after my second son was born. For years I was an active participant at Digitals and a member of several creative teams. Between health issues, raising a family of 3 and starting a business, my scrapping took a backseat. 2016 resolution was to get my act together. I have spent a lot of time sorting and organizing my kits to make the transition back to scrapping easier. I have found that most of the sites I used to frequent are closed, but I stumbled onto The Lily Pad and I am in love!!! Hope to get back to some challenges and join a creative team. My goal for every day is one current and one old layout. So far, I'm right on track (even ahead)!! So...thanks for having me. I look forward to getting to know all of you!!

    I switched to digital after second child was born too. LOL. Just way easier! I LOVE your goal. I'm thinking maybe I might set a goal of at least 2 a day as well. Right now I'm trying to do 4 a week, but what's a few more? LOL good luck and welcome!

    Hi! I'm Ruth Ann and I used to scrap a lot. Looking at my folder, I started in 2009 after my first trip to Disney World. Did it pretty consistently until 2011 when I got busy with work and lost steam. Now I've been married a year and have lots of pretty wedding pictures to play with so I'm trying to get back into scrapping. :) I've followed Sahlin Studios a lot so TLP seemed a like a friendly place to hang out and check out other designers. Looking forward to doing challenges and getting my skills back :)

    Other things I like to do - play piano, running (hoping for a marathon this year), play with my friends' cute babies, serve at church, go to Disneyland (not nearly as often as I'd like), and being outdoors exploring or hiking.
