Hi, everyone... I would love to join in here!

I'm Erika, my DH is Chris.. and our little girl is Alexis, who will be 3 in March

I used to scrapbook when she was younger- and, as per usual when it comes to "crafts" regarding me, I just STOP doing it. I've never (ever) been a creative-type of person... so I was pretty surprised when I even wanted to attempt scrapbooking, I can't even draw a proper stick figure I'm not just a creative soul on a normal basis. But, for some reason, scrapbooking is REALLY enjoying to me and my creative juices flow more than ever! I'm not a "pro" or anything, I could still learn a LOT... but I enjoy it, that's all that matters... right?!

Alexis came across he scrapbook today and she's at that age now where she truly enjoyed looking through it- seeing pictures of her when she was little, all the stickers and ribbons, etc.. she looked through it 10 times! I felt bad that there wasn't much in there for her to see since I just stopped So, now I'm re-moviated to start up again.

I stopped scrapping when she was 6 months old so I'm SO behind... maybe that's one of the reasons I never went back to it, I'm missing that big chunk and it's daunting to think about filling that missing spot in. I don't know whether to go back and start again where I left off... and do old photos... or start fresh for a little bit with recent photos. Hm. Regardless, I'm taking a trp tomorrow to maybe Michael's to get some new stickers, papers, etc.. I have lots from before, but need a few things.

I thought I would share some of my past pages















Sorry, it might be hard to see some of the details.. wasn't very light in the room when I took these and they didn't come out as good as I wanted.

And sorry so long, I tend to ramble I'm looking forward to knowing you all!!!!!!

Hey Erika! Welcome to the board!

Your album is great!

I just got back into scrapping as well. DH bought me a Cricut for Christmas and I've been addicted to it since. It really got me motivated once again!

This is a great board! Glad to have you join us!

Welcome. The ladies here are just awesome. You have some great pages!! I just got back into it after nearly four years as well. There is so much more now then there was when I started. When I started last summer, I went back to my DS' birth and such and have tried to keep current since then, but am a little behind. I am also trying to go back from when I met DH and high school, so that's a really long time for me!

Erika!!!

Glad to have you here! You layouts are all so very cute!!!!

I know how hard it is to catch up once you get behind but it can be done!!! Along with trying to stay caught up for this year I am trying to get the year 2000 done, so far I've only got January of that year done. So maybe we can catch up together

Oh I'm Michelle and I just had my 12th baby(9th boy)2 weeks ago so scraping I try to fit in when I can usually after dinner when I can relax and Rich(DH)takes over the kids lol.

Thank you all so much for the warm welcome!

I ended up doing another page the other night, after not doing one in quite awhile.. I might just have to start a gallery with my pages I went to Target and looked through their scrapping stuff and bought several things on clearance.. so I'm excited to do my next page, I might do that tonight after Alexis is in bed.

I'm glad I'm not the only one SO behind Ack!

Valeri, congratulations on your new arrival!!!!! Aw!
