Hi all!

I just wanted to introduce myself. My name's Lynn, I'm 30 years old and mother to one little teddybear of a boy (so cuddly!). We live in Haarlem, the Netherlands, which is quite near to Amsterdam. I teach English in a secondary school to students aged 12-19 three days a week, which I love. I never used to be much for keeping up with photo albums and the like, but that changed when my boy was born last year; now I just can't seem to take enough pictures because I like to scrap them so much! Hoping to be inspired by your lay-outs and join a challenge every now and then.

Hi Lynn . Welcome to Ginger Scraps and the wonderful world of digi scrapping. Em gave you a couple of great links to check out. Also, the FB hop thru today has pieces to a wonderful kit. Look in the DSD forum for the link. I can't seem to link from the iPad at the moment.
a super idea to scrap those precious photos of your little son.
If you need assistance someone is always around.

Hi Lynn! Welcome to GingerScraps! I think a lot of us started scrapbooking when we had little ones. I started 20 years ago when my daughter was born. This is an awesome place to learn! There are lots of very friendly and helpful ladies here.
