Introductions

Hi everyone,
I think iv just gone grey over the last few days trying to figure out how this web works hahaha, (kind of like when cell phones first came in and your parents struggled to use them and you ended up having to explain everything..............patience is greatly needed - If it wasnt for my sister Kim I think I would have lost it completely, she is just so gentle with me, she's been unbelievable with all the help!! THANK YOU KIMBO!!

As you can see Im new to the scapping world.
Yep all my sisters fault hehehe, she's my hero and inspiration and now im just hooked.

Im still chief bottle washer, nappy and bib manager for my family which consists of little Caden our latest addition and our other 4 kids (Jazzy, Speedo, Tutu who are gorgeous little pugs and Nix our eldest pavement special) plus my awesome hubby and when I remember - there's me to.

Iv been following a few of Kims CT sites and finding the work you have all done absolutely STUNNING!!! Cant wait to start my side, which will be soon I hope (there's kim going *groan* cos she knows im going to be on the phone to her going H E L P,

I'll have a little something for you soon using KimB's March colour challenge, but in the mean time dont you just LOVE my blog page?? My SISTER KIM AGAIN (she's just the best!!!), she designed it for me and its so me that I chunked when I saw it!!

time for a nappy change..........

You know I've been waiting patiently for this first Hello and now am sooo excited that I can share YOU and your amazing talent with the rest of my digi/scrapping friends.
So nice to have you here sis and I look forward to hearing news/updates and pics of my precious niece Caden too- YIPPPPEEEEEEEEEE
Can you hear I'm excited! lol

And don't worry- you'll get into the swing of how things work quickly- looks like you got this one down without a phone call- hahahaha.
Poor Bunny got all my HELP mails when I started online- I didn't have a CLUE ( well ok, I still don't and Bunny still gets those mails- LOVE YOU BUNNY- hahaha)

Welcome SIS
