    Welcome everyone!!! Yay for MOC!! This is my 8th year with the MOC (having completed every one :) ) and my second as a Polly. Yup I am one who is thrilled to have won a Polly spot so it is possible! As Laura said, you will meet new friends here while doing the challenges. That is how I met some of my dearest friends here at the pad :) I hope you love the challenges we have in store for you!! As for me, I am married to my best friend for 27 years. We love to travel and I love coffee :)

    I can't wait to see all of your pages!!

    Soooooooooo glad to be here... newbie to digi scrapping (since about Oct2019) but been paper scrapping since 2003. This will be my first MOC so holding thumbs I can do it justice.

    A little about me... I live in South Africa, married and have an 18yr old who is about to go to varsity (we hope!). I work mornings only but run around most afternoons after my son and mother. I scrap whenever I can during the rest of the day.

    I'm so excited that this is my first MOC as a fully fledged Polly! This is my 7th MOC (the last 6 all completed) Wow, time flies!
    I am in the UK, married with 3 grown up kids and an empty nest. I work part time as a nanny and am a devoted dog mum to Poppy.
    I've been paper scrapping since 2001 and digital scrapping since 2013. I also do art journaling in real life and love to be outside wherever possible.
    Good luck everyone - have fun :clap I'm looking forward to seeing all the creativity that MOC inspires :beat

    I’m Jennifer - live in New Zealand, have been scrapping since 1998ish and fully digital since 2005/6. Been at TLP for 8 years this month but probably been most active the last 4-5 I’d say. Have yet to complete a MOC but this is my 3rd or 4th try.

    Woohoo! I am SO keen to get MOC8 started and get my creative juices flowing again after a very slow 2019!

    I'm Amanda (obviously :giggle) and I live in Brisbane, Australia (so I'm the Aussie Amanda). I have two DDs (22 yrs + 18 yrs) and I have been married to my best friend for the past 30 years (time flies!). I have been scrapping since 2007 and have been a Polly (at the most magical place online) since 2014 (again, time flies!!).

    Its lovely to be starting this scrappy adventure with you!

    This is my 3rd MOC. I live in England with my husband, two teenagers and a pre-teen. In addition to being a mum, I'm a fulltime 24/7 carer for both of my teenagers who have developed life threatening medical conditions. I digi scrap and craft to keep sane, and be "me".

    Hi everyone!
    This is my 4th MOC. I didn't finish last year because my brother and nephew were over from Sweden and time with them was a priority. This year is starting out a little quieter so I will do better :)
    I'm from Australia, mom to 2 boys and I've been a digiscrapper since 2008.

    Happy New Year!

    This will be my first MOC, I did one page last year which I'm not counting since it was for a calendar I was finishing and I made it work for a challenge, but I was busy with lots of other stuff and knew I wouldn't do any other challenges... but was determined to do so this year (how is it this year already!). I live in Southern CA with my DH of 30 yrs., two of our three DDs (24, 22, 18), and five cats. I started paper scrapping in 1996, was hooked with digiscrapping in 2008, but still consider myself a beginner since I homeschooled my three DDs K-12 and didn't have a lot of extra time. I discovered TLP during iNSD 2018 and would say this is definitely my digi home.

    Hi everyone and Happy New Year! This is my 3rd MOC and I love it. I must leave my comfort zone from time to time :-)
    I've been digital scrapbooking since 2012. I live in a small town in rural Germany. I have one daughter who lives with her family in San Diego, California. And I am a proud grandma of three little girls! For a long time I was the back office manger in a software company but I am retired now.
    When I’m not scrapping, I love gardening, walking, and spending quality time with my hubby.

    Hi! I landed at the lilypad last year at this time so this is my second shot at MOC. I am more of a mixed media artist than a memory keeper. I am Canadian but live and do most of my work in Australia. I am away in various countries for about 4 months of the year and truly it sounds way more glamous that it is... schlepping bags, weird internet and jet lag.
    I love artistry in all forms so this MOC I am going to take the time give lots of love and comments to my fellow scrappers..... I can't wait to get started....blind scrap here i come.

    Hi everyone!

    This is my 3rd MOC, but my first wasn’t completely finished... been digi scrapping for 10 years and love how this challenge makes me grow creatively.

    I have a couple extra challenges as we head into the next week. My husband and I are moving out of state. So... I’m going to do today’s challenge, then I won’t be back at my computer until next Monday or Tuesday... I’ll be able to make up the time, but shew!! Luckily, my hubs knows this is a priority and he’ll keep me on schedule! Lol

    Happy to see all your inspiring faces up in here! Let’s do this!

    Happy New Year! This is my 2nd MOC & I can’t wait. I barely finished last year, but am hoping to be more on top of things this year. I’ve been scrapping for close to 20 years. I started with traditional but have almost completely switched to digital. My husband & I have a 10 year old daughter & 2 cats. We’ve been on several vacations with extended family that I’m still trying to scrap. My goal for this year is to finish an album - or 2 or 3!

    Hi everyone! This is my third MOC, but last year was my first completed one. I loved the layouts I came away with and the sheer volume of what I got done! Thanks for hosting this again. Looking forward to this year's challenges.
