MPS Blog Hop

I got so many great ideas from the MPS blog hop. What a fun way of getting to know others' styles.  I decided I would make my first card...and actually this challenge is what got me to create this blog today!
I went with "something pink" as I don't have any MPS stamps...yet..(hehe)

Also, it is my first pink/girly creation!

So here it is...(the blue background is NOT part of the card, that's just what it was on top of)

My First Blog - My First Post

So...after all the time I spend online doing my bachelor of social work degree, and of course feeding my addiction to Facebook (shame on me), I decided to turn to the web in search of inspiration and ideas for my new found hobby - scrapbooking.  I came across My Pink Stamper's page and this drove me to create my own blog. I hope this will keep me checking in to get inspiration from other blogs too! I started just recently when I began my son's 'first year' album.  I have since only made one other album - one for a relative's wedding. I look forward to learning from the large number of fellow scrappers!
