View Full Version : Hi there!

01-20-2012, 10:24 PM
Just joined the forum, some neat stuff so far! Not sure about how it all works yet.

Anyway, I'm a stay-at-home mom of 5 children, ages 14, 12, 10, 6, and 1. The oldest two are boys and the last three are girls. Happily married to my hubby, Jake. We live in Manitoba, Canada.

I've been a scapper for years, but only recently started with digital and love it! This past year found it hard to get into traditional scapbooking due to our youngest who was diagnosed with SCID's or "the bubble boy disease". She had a bone marrow transplant in June & is now thriving...praise God! Still need to "scrap" her story.

Look forward to being here, thanks!

Welcome - check out the challenges so you can get some points and get some coupons for % off kits. If you do enough challenges you can get a $5 gift certificate to the store here. If you need help ask questions because we were all new at one time.

Welcome! Ditto on super mom! Please do let us know when you scrap her story. My cousin-in-law had to have a bone marrow transplant 2 years ago, and now is doing amazing- like nothing happened. Hoping that your bad days are over and that she is able to live a normal life again!
