    it's so good to see the pad. and, it's been so long. def 9 years maybe close to rolling on to 10. so much happened. life was so. yeah, so. i see many familiar faces. Gina I thought of you this year on 9-11. Amy, as always. And Kate!

    I'm shopping for elements and I'll have to learn it all over again. But I'm excited.

    Oh my gosh! Lauren!

    It's so good to see you again! Now is the perfect time to pop back in with DSD this weekend. Can't wait to see your creations in the gallery.

    I'm scrapping live a couple of times over the weekend (see here: Watch Cheryl Scrap LIVE! | DSD Special Sessions | October 4th, 5th & 7th) and would love to have you pop in if it works with your schedule!

    Welcome back!!!!

    hello Lauren. I took a big scrapping break too. The Lilypad helped me rekindle my old hobby and I'm hooked again.
    Blessings to you and yours.

    Welcome back Lauren! I remember you from back in the day! :) Glad to see you're able to jump back in! Hopefully it's like riding a bike and you can just get back up and going in no time! :agree

    welcome back! I took a few years pause too, and definitely the lilypad is the best place to reconnect with scrap!!

    Thanks for posting. I've been really quiet here this year as well. As you said, yeah, life, after January MOC it all caught up and rolled on over me. Hoping myself to get back in to scrapping; starting with getting back into the forum and finding inspiration. Hope to see you posting here soon too!
