I am an 'empty nester' - sons left home and no grandkids yet! I have three dogs who are my new 'babies' - and of course I shouldn't forget my husband of 32 years, Mark. I started scrapbooking about 2 years ago and I'm totally hooked on it. I have just started with a few basic cards so please forgive any errors (!) I have recently started joining in the challenges too and this has given me new ideas for them- something I was struggling with- so thanks for sharing! I have made many new friends through several clubs and I thoroughly enjoy crops and am so pleased I've found this absorbing hobby.
