Thought I'd make my first post with pics about where I started and where I am right now.
I had been wanting to scrap for years, but didn't really know where to start. My good friend Jo was right into scrapping and offered to help. Well eventually I got started, well sort of. We started with making christmas tags one year, and I never finished them.
Then I wanted to make my own address book, started that then the chipboard buckled with the glue and I gave up.
When Ethan was born my sister gave me an 8x8 baby scrapp booking album and matching phto frame so I made an earnest start. I foolishly decided I was scrap chronologically. My fist page was of us finding out I was pregnant.
Jo came with my to my local lss, Album Memories, in Port Elliot and help my hand the whole way. I had no idea what I wnated to do or even where to start. I had bough some el cheapo papers form the local $2 store. Not great quality but they were nice enough. 'We' decided to go with a green colour scheme. It turned out quite good. I thought I was so clever printing on vellum and then attatching it with eyelets!
From then on both mine and Jo's lives became quite hectic so I didn't have Jo to hold me hand as much anymore. I kept putting off scrapping because Jo wasn't there, but in the end I gained the confidence to do it myslef. I started searching the net and buying some mags for ideas.
I'm quite happy as to how far I have come so far. But I have sooooo much more to learn. I have started taking part in CyberCrops and Monthly Challenges, and they have really helped me to grow as a scrapper.
This is a pic of one of my latest pieces of work. It's for March's Sketch Challenge over at ScrapTherapy.
