I too am doing the design challenge and thought I should introduce myself here too.
I am near 30 and a work at home mom (my hubby is self employed and I get to do all of the office work) and a home-school mom. I have two little boys ages 5 and 4 and a little girl who was stillborn this summer. I actively participate in bringing awareness to pregnancy and infant loss.
I have been digi scrapping for about a year and designing since Sept '09. Before that I was a traditional scrapper, but like most, I don't think I will ever go back....I do, however, like a good hybrid project or page!
I too like challenges and learning new techniques (more than actually making the pages I think, LOL) and hope to soon get more involved in these boards.
